What are small plates called?
Small plates, ie those below 7″ (180mm), are usually referred to as side plates or bread plates. Some salad plates may also be around 7″, putting them in the same bracket as the bread and side plate. Any plate above this size is generally considered to be for mains, starters and desserts.
What is a side plate used for?
A side plate is usually used for serving sides, but can also be used for bread and other extras. The smaller size (usually between 5-7″ or 125-180mm) makes it perfect for these uses, and ensures it won’t take up too much space on your table tops. Ideal when serving up large meals consisting of multiple dishes.
What size is a side plate?
A side plate is usually 5-7″ (125-180mm) in diameter, allowing you to serve up sides without overburdening your table tops with excess clutter. A dinner plate, by comparison, is typically about 11″ in diameter, although this can vary, with some designer plates much larger and others slightly smaller.
Where does the side plate go?
In formal settings, the side plate is usually placed on the left of the dinner plate, making it easier for right-handed diners (which make up the majority of the population) to butter bread without having to reach over the dinner plate.
