The food is not bad but far from perfect... Wraps are great but I wouldn't recommend sandwiches. On the other hand the employees are very pleasant and the prices are reasonable. Plus the location is very nice.

The entrees are about $20 each and are very reasonable. The breakfast items are ace and the lunch items aren't too bad either. Great place in a good neighborhood.

Pros: price, taste

This tiny spot on Montana Ave is always brimming with people. Once inside, tables are just as overcrowded and crammed. The service is a bit hasty. Don't think about individualized attention here. Eat and get out. The draw here then is

Pros: the buzz, staying alive one day longer

Cons: the wait, the haste, the mediocrity

I loved this place the 1st time I went- they have a great variety of fresh and yummy options, with some more unique twists that you don't see just anywhere (grilled artichokes!). I decided to go back with 2 friends just to find the WORST

This is probably my favorite breakfast/lunch place on Montana. It's really laid-back and has a much more neighborhood feel than most of the other restaurants on the Montana stretch, while still maintaining that upper-eschelon feel that all

I loved this place before I stepped inside. I have lots of food allergies and eating out is so hard for me. This place wins my heart and stomach. I had there dairy free tomatoe hearb soup and some sweet potato fries. Just these two things

Been here four times now and it's been hitt or miss (mostly hits for me, fortunately; not so much for my various guests). OK, so this is what to order: Blueberry smoothie (creamy, thick, delish!); Turkey chili (out of control flavor &

Pros: Blueberry smoothie, turkey chili, yam fries & it's all pretty cheap

Cons: Small space; don't take rezzies; chaotic waitstaff

.

This is a very cool neighborhood hangout. The place is rather small and gets very crowded on weekends so be prepared for a wait. The burgers and fries are really good.

If you can put up with the lunch time office crowd, then Blue Plate is recommended! The soup selection is huge- with tasty vegetarian options like split pea with barley and cream of mushroom. The tomato basil panini is well seasoned very filling. Very fresh ingredients that are worth the wait if you have the time. It's Montana Street, so parking is always an issue.
