Decided to check out a new place for breakfast while visiting my daughter and was pleasantly surprised by this great restaurant with sleek decor, superior service and delicious food. Home fries are always the measure of a serious breakfast place and these were fresh made from red bliss potatoes and delicious, the best I've had in a long time. The made to order omelet with goat cheese, broccoli and onion was superb. Breakfast can be boring but Blue Plate made it special.

I have liked the Blue Plate since the day they opened. Originally, Chef Dan would walk the floor and greet patrons table side. This is always a nice attribute to dining. Dan & I had great Foodie conversations. He's now gone, but I still love the comfort food atmosphere.

The menu is chalked full of your favorites you remember your Mom or Grandma serving. However, each dish is cranked up a notched to meet many of today's pallets that might not remember the pure simplicity of Mom & Grandmas cooking. Either wayI'm good, just serve it HOT if it supposed to be and still FROZEn if that is it's intent!

Blue Plate is a gem in the hungry Bishops Corner section of WeHa. Check it out and if you're like me strike up a conversation with the Chef and or staff. They appreciate positive and constructive critique, such as, "Could you ramp up the craft beer selections?" (HINT)

Based on recommendations from colleagues, we visited Blue Plate Kitchen. Let me begin with what may seem inconsequential to some readers - the ice tea is great. I love ice tea and can always tell the difference between "the box" and fresh brewed. Serving the latter (as they do) says a lot about attention to detail that is obviously taken seriously at Blue Plate Kitchen. The first entree was the roasted half chicken. We normally don't order chicken in a restaurant because 99% of the time it's dried out/overcooked. Someone in the kitchen of this wonderful establishment knows how to prepare chicken. This was moist and delicious. The sides included creamy homemade mashed potatoes and perfectly crisp Brussel sprouts. Our other entree was the smoked and braised pork belly. This dish is a masterpiece of pork perfection. It was accompanied by a flawless piece of cornbread that was moist and not overly sweet along with nicely spiced fingerling potatoes. We also enjoyed delicate popovers and pickles that can only be rivaled by the best New York deli. If we didn't have to go to work tomorrow, we'd go back for breakfast. Yes, it was that good!

The matter of fact decor of Blue Plate took on a romantic ambience as Vickie enjoyed a delicious Prix Fixe Valentine's Day special. We have enjoyed Blue Plate several times in the last, and this trip lived up to,all expectations. In addition to delicious food, the service is always friendly, efficient and helpful! Highly recommended.
