Homeplate Cafe was our go to place while our house was being updated. A number of breakfasts and lunches. This place is consistently good. Breakfasts are made to order and the only thing that could use a bit of improvement are the pancakes. Everything else...is very solid and good. The lunch buffets have a very nice daily variety with the flexibility to 2 or 3 and a main as items are charged individually charged. Desserts are good with some homemade. Been there and will return.More

I haven't been to Homeplate in a good while but my husband (Dadeville born & raised) is there several times a week. We visited after church on Sunday & found a packed parking lot so I was really wanting to go somewhere less crowded. Reluctantly...went inside........long line waiting too!! Used restroom while we waited---very clean facilities. Thankfully had our food & seated in less than 15 minutes. And the food.......fried chicken fingers are large, perfectly cooked & delicious!! Mac & cheese, rutabagas, jalapeño cornbread, strawberry shortcake, & sweet tea equally as yummy!! Awesome wait staff too. Couldn't have been happier with my meal.......ready to go back now!! Something for everybody so please visit Homeplate Cafe soon for excellent food & service :-DMore

One of my favorite Breakfast places to eat. I've eaten here several times and never have been disappointed. It's what older folks remember as an ole fashion "mom and pop" dinner. The food is good, the waitresses pleasant, and prices reasonable. Come join them and...enjoy.More

The food here is great. We've eaten here a few times now and our food is always hot and tasty. They offer omelets, eggs as you like them, bacon, and pancakes, milk, coffee, etc, which is what we usually order, along with the typical southern...style foods like biscuits, corn bread, grits, etc. The lunch has salads, spaghetti, lightly battered delicious fish fillets, fried or grilled chicken tenders, mashed potatoes, yellow rice, black eyed peas, and desserts too! Great sweet tea! Perfect price point for very good food. They're not open for dinner and not open on Saturdays.More
