Blue Plate Cafe - Poplar

5469 Poplar Avenue
Memphis, TN 38119

Blue Plate Cafe is just like pulling a chair up to your grandma’s table. Baskets of hot biscuits with bowls of gravy, hot fluffy pancakes, buttery grits and crispy bacon are just a few of the breakfast items available any time of the day. The menu looks like a small-town newspaper which only adds to the homey atmosphere of the restaurant. From its blue and white checkered tablecloths to its friendly staff, you will feel like you've come home.

Lunch items are served from 11 a.m. and feature meat and threes with Southern favorites like country fried steak, catfish, meatloaf and fried chicken. Of course, they have soups, salads and sandwiches plus desserts including cobblers a la mode and pies. It's just like a home-cooked meal (only you don’t have to do the dishes).
