I sit here writing this review as my belly digests the awesomeness we just enjoyed. This is “comfort food” at it’s absolute finest. This was our first visit to the Blue Plate Café and we are huge fans. Excellent service and food. Loved the vintage Huntsville photos. What did we eat? Me: southern fried catfish. Wife: pot roast, mashed potatoes... More

I have eaten here several times. The portions are huge and the prices are fair. If you order out, they do not put your items on a divided plate with a lid. Each item is placed into an individual container with a lid. I have tried several items and they have always been good. The staff is very pleasant and... More

I came here for breakfast based on the reviews I read. The hostess was very friendly when I walked in and I sat at the counter. Bobbie, my waitress, was very pleasant to talk to. I went with her recommendation for the breakfast burritos and they were delicious! Much better than most other places I've been to. I would definitely... More

We really wanted to like BPC, it has a good reputation but it just wasn't there for our late lunch today. I might have even gone with a good rating but I've been using that lately for much better dining experiences. Lunch was not poor but it was just ok and that rating is not available. We stood at the... More

Great variety of home cooking, comfort food! Stopped in on a dreary, Saturday afternoon. Staff were attentive, portions were sufficient, and quality of food very good. Would definitely recommend and return again for another meal.

Twelve of our Optimist club got together for breakfast at The Blue Plate Café before we began delivering our annual Thanksgiving food boxes to needy Huntsville families. The restaurant was busy, however we had a reservation and were seated quickly. Our server, Tia arrived quickly and took our orders and provided fresh coffee. The breakfast menu was varied with something... More

Had breakfast with a co-worker and really liked it. Waitstaff was excellent- really friendly and made you feel at home. Food was really good, fresh, hot and quick. Cheese grits were great! Will try dinner next time!
