“Breakfast”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

My family and I go for breakfast sometimes, it's really good and a great value! It's a very small place and tends to be very busy, and the staff isn't very friendly. That is why I am not going to say great, however I do like the pancakes and the sausages and cheese omelet very much.

“Southern style food in a cute family environment”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

Classic! Old fashioned southern, country menu with home made biscuits and corn bread. You can't miss the yellow building with blue awnings on Poplar. The parking lot is crowded, but don't get frustrated as there is more parking behind/on the side of the building. The decor is cottage-y with bright colors, chair rails and art and memorabilia adorning the walls. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Come prepared to leave diets and tofu options behind. The breakfast options are large and served throughout the day. Portions are fairly large and most entrees come with 2 sides. The veggies are prepared cooked through, the southern way where the vegetables are soft. I asked for the vegetable of the day, the response: baked potato. That should give you a pretty good idea of the menu!! Country fried steak and the Turkey and dressing meals were great and around $10 for lunch. The sweet tea was stocked with ice and very refreshing. Refills were provided without asking. We came in for an early lunch and it was busy until we left. Great experience - definitely recommend the Blue Plate Cafe!

“Southern Charm”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

I just ate breakfast here at the recommendation from the hotel front desk clerk. The building has history and seems to be pretty popular with the locals.i found the food good but slightly overpriced. Huge portions! I could not finish it all. Overall a nice place with southern charm!

“Just As Described”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

This is a neat little cafe. The place was packed at lunch time but we did not have to wait. My husband had the fried bologna sandwich with fries and I had sides: yellow squash (special), turnip greens, green beans and white beans. We had lemonade and tea. Everything was really good. The server was friendly and helpful. Great old school lunch.

“The best biscuits and gravy”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

A cute, friendly cafe with unbelievably delicious biscuits and gravy. My family had ham, grits, eggs and pancakes as well-everything was tasty and reasonably priced. Go!
