Hungry? Headed to or from Parkway Place Mall, Huntsville Hospital, Von Braun Center or Clearview Cancer Institute? Then, boy, do I have a recommendation for you!
My Silver Fox and I recently discovered Blue Plate Cafe, and it was almost like closing our eyes and imagining we were eating our grandmothers’ cooking. With two locations in Huntsville, one on Governor’s Drive and the other on South Parkway, you should be able to find one easily.
It’s a busy, noisy place with great food, courteous servers, fast service and large portions served in a 1950’s diner atmosphere. The Governor’s Drive location has been blowin’ and goin’ for 12 years, and the South Parkway version was added a little over a year ago. Carry-outs are popular, and the South Parkway location offers a banquet room.
Breakfast is served from 6:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Then the lunch and dinner menu begins at 11:00 a.m. and goes to 8:00 p.m. everyday except Sunday.
At least 5 meat choices and 10 vegetables are offered each day, varying depending on the day of the week.
Breakfast offerings range from traditional eggs and bacon to omelettes, pancakes, waffles, fruit, pastries and everything in between.
Portions are larger and tastier than Cracker Barrel’s, and you don’t have to wade through all of the other merchandise temptations to get to your table. We liked it, and I think you will, too. Not gourmet. Just yummy comfort food.
