Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect mug Beautiful, perfectly balanced mugs. Handle is just right for gripping, and placed on the mug is a way that provides excellent control when lifting. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cafe Cereal Bowls Love these porcelain cereal bowls! So durable, beautiful and they hold quite a bit of food!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Salad plates These plates are exactly what I was hoping for. They are a nice weight and are dishwasher proof. The plate can handle a sophisticated arrangement of food or a simple, casual one. I am certainly happy with this purchase, and since they are "open stock", I will order other pieces from this collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic look, reasonably priced dishware. Excellent quality, lighter-weight dishware. Durable, classic style and the right price point. I like the retro look, color and simple design!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Classic & "Frenchy" Just love these dishes .... they have a nice feel to them and can be used for everyday casual meals or dressed up for a special dinner using floral accent pieces. They are classic in style with the smooth, crisp white porcelain and blue stripes. They bring back fond memories of a trip to Paris many years ago and eating in the quaint bistrots in the Latin Quarter. There isn't a room in my house that doesn't have something from Ballards and am lucky to live near their Tampa store to be able to see items in person. Thank you Valerie for helping with my purchase ... love adding the pasta bowls to my set. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cafe mugs set of 12 These are great mugs. I bought the all white ones 14 ounce. Sturdy with good sized handle and not heavy. Would recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good addition to the set Great pasta bowls. Nice size, not only for pasta but for side dishes also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must add to jazz up the table These plates are an awesome addition to the Café Dinnerware set to jazz up the table. I like that they are flat across the surface - perfect for first course salad or as a dessert plate. The blue looks super cool with the oyster Cafe Dinnerware plates. Do recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic and elegant Perfect for every day or to set an elegant table. I love the classic styling and shape and size of the bowls and mugs. The accent plates make the table setting. Beautiful set. Could not be happier with my purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these pasta bowls Everyone in our home loves these bowls. We all go for these most of the time. Made quite well. My son’s girlfriend dropped one on the floor and thankfully it didn’t break! I told her I would’ve had to ban her from my kitchen if she’d broken it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality dishware! I think the impression on the plate holds the juices and gravy on the plate, also heavy as stoneware. Came quickly and was packed well. Love it!!
Date published: 2019-01-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So glad I found these dishes! I have been looking for chip resistant dishes and these are amazing. They are classy looking and stand up to little dings while going into the dishwasher. My last set that I bought in a store would chip all of the time. The only thing I wish is that this was a setting for 8 instead of for six. I will save up to buy another set so I have a 12 piece setting. They are totally worth the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great basic dinnerware Purchased the salad plates in solid white first. Wanted to make sure they were durable and would last awhile. Was very pleased with them, so I added the dinner plates and mugs. Love the neutral aspect to these and I can change the table theme easily with this great basic white.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dishes I have been looking for restaurant quality porcelain dishes for some time, and these are great. They will easily mix with other pieces. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional place settings These plates are absolutely stunning! Very high quality. I ordered some dishes from another company and was very disappointed, so I returned them. I am so glad that I found these. They are exactly what I wanted to use on our new patio. Cannot wait to invite friends and family over so I can use my fun (and beautiful) plates.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple and classic I love the classic design of this dinnerware. I have been looking for porcelain everyday dinnerware for the past two years. The mugs are comfortable and stable to grip and hold........all four fingers fit into the handle! Love the size and shape of the pasta bowls; great for entree salads as well. Twice the blue dotted salad/dessert plates have had a cloudy manufacturing flaw about the size of a half dollar. I'm hoping the third time is the charm for getting defect-free salad/dessert plates. Overall, very happy with this dinnerware.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The plates my food deserves I would actually give this set 3.5 stars if I could. The plates seem to be durable and look good with a clean simple pattern. I did see two things that knocked down the rating a little: 1.) There is a little bit of a homemade quality to the plates where they aren’t all exactly the same size or shape. This is most evident when they are stacked up and the gaps between plates vary by a considerable degree. 2.) the bowls do not stack. Any more than four high and it becomes very unstable. Prepare to dedicate a lot of cupboard room to the bowls. I do really like the coffee cups. They are a little larger than usual so the largest setting on a keurig leaves enough room for a generous splash of milk or cream.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bowls bought this recently and so far it's just what I wanted. Good size. Fits well in dishwasher. Love the feel of these plates - very clear colors. Well made product. I expect them to last a long time and to perform well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Loved now loathe I loved this set so much at first -- simple, minimalist, elegant. But after just five months of use, the dinner plates, bowls, and salad plates are warping. When the dishware is stacked, you can see how badly misshaped some of the individual bowls and plates have become. This is my first set of dishware from Ballard Designs and I am terribly disappointed. Is this caused by washing them in the dishwasher? Or were the dishes fired incorrectly?
