walking into the plate on central avenue is like entering the kitchen of a dear friend

Nestled in Milton’s Lower Mills neighborhood, our cozy shop opened its doors in 2012 and we’ve been delighting customers ever since. We open starting at 8am, Tues-Sun, offering up lovely breakfast treats such as our very own seasonal drop scones, crazy good cinnamon toast, coffee and tea.

In 2017, the shop introduced a brand new “egg-centric” menu. Chef + Owner, Suzanne Lombardi decided to take the sandwich that put The Plate on the map and run with it – that sandwich is the beloved Classic Egg with cheddar cheese, roasted tomato, arugula and aioli.

Tasty variations of the classic egg sandwich are now being served up all day! Prefer not to have the egg? We designed them to make sensational sandwiches – without the egg too. Sandwich Variations include:

Designer Egg + Carne sandwiches, marinated pulled pork, cheddar and pickled cucumbers, and the Grilled Chicken “Jimmy Style” marinated grilled chicken, Dijon mayo, roasted fig jam, fresh mozzarella, arugula on a grilled brioche bun. “Greens + Scales” showcases specialty egg sandwiches with veggies and seafood, like the grilled eggplant, feta cheese, salsa verde, and arugula as well as the house-smoked salmon sandwich with herbed goat cheese and arugula.

Other menu items include ready-made salads made fresh daily, small batch seasonal soups and a selection of homey sweets. On weekends we’re open Saturday from 8am -3:30pm and Sunday 8am-2pm. Enjoy your meal inside at our counter seating all year round or outdoors during the warm weather months.
