Looked up the nearest place to eat near our hotel Madison and we went here to try it on the Tuesday about 11 they did an all day breakfast and lunch starts at 11 so best of both worlds - had a great breakfast and went back the next day it was so good definitely deserves a visit

The service and food were all above par. It was a nice brief walk from our hotel, and we loved the local art on the walls (although there appears to be a serious water leak coming from the roof! Or at least major previous water damage)

Remember when you go that this is a diner, the food is classic diner dishes and they were all good. The portions are huge and you will not leave hungry.

We read about this gem on Trip Advisor and decided to check it out. Glad we did. It was really a nice breakfast spot. Come early or wait in line because the hours were super limited (I believe 8 am until 2 pm). There was a line for a table and we were asked to wait 30 minutes. We waited... More

We went for breakfast and was not disappointed. Better go hungry. Very generous portions. Ham, eggs, and pancakes were very tasty. Coffee was good and the waitress kept our cups full. Great way to start the day!

Down Home Local food! Definitely Southern Cooking. We had the fried Chicken with sides and it did not disappoint. The Blue Plate is kind of hidden on a narrow street across from a park but it is a great little gem. Not to pricy and the food is great!

It really is hard to wreck breakfast. Just be honest with the customer and get the order right. I asked our waitress prior to ordering if the maple syrup was REAL maple syrup, and she said yes, ma'am. I was surprised, as we ARE in the south, not New England, so I went further for confirmation: "Really? It's the real... More
