handcrafted comfort food made with seasonal ingredients by people with a mindful attitude towards cooking

Fabulous food with a local twist

Seriously delicious, fresh, and imaginative. These are just a few ways to describe the food served up at the plate, a Milton, Massachusetts business that has been delighting customers since 2012. Getting its start in the Milton Lower Mills neighborhood, with a second and much larger location newly opened on the second floor at the Milton Marketplace in East Milton,

The plate was opened by chef Suzanne Lombardi, who has a unique love of sharing great homemade food with her customers. As the plate’s offerings constantly evolve, Suzanne strives to keep her focus on comfort food made from the best quality seasonal ingredients, a vision she shares with her dedicated team.  In 2017, The Plate on Central introduced a new “egg-centric” menu that showcases their creative spin on the egg sandwich! You’ll also find a selection of yummy treats, soups and salads.  The Plate @Milton Marketplace offers delicious handcrafted sandwiches, soups, prepared meals and homey baked goods and serves an amazing brunch on Sundays.

From our inimitable egg sandwiches to the vibrant flavors of locally grown veggies and herbs, we are passionate about our food, our community, and our earth, and look forward to sharing that passion with you the next time you’re in the neighborhood. See you soon!

Supporting our local community

The plate is devoted to supporting our local farmers by providing their quality ingredients throughout the year. We are grateful for area businesses like Brookwood and Thatcher Farms that keep our kitchen well-stocked with local goodness throughout the year.
