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...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.

If you want a quick home-style meal at a great price, the Blue Plate Cafe is hard to beat. They offer daily specials including pork chops, meatloaf, catfish, chicken, etc. They have a great selection of vegetables to round out the meal.
