13 Vintage Dishes That Are Perfect For A Nostalgic Kitchen Vibe

You should probably share this:

When asked in a 2005 interview what her favorite dish was, former Disney star Demi Lovato replied with “I like mugs, because they’re very comfortable in your hand. They hold hot things that you don’t have to touch”.

While this certainly wasn’t the response the reporters were looking for, the singer wasn’t wrong either. Mugs are technically dishes. And dishes (the objects, not types of foods) are underrated features of a good kitchen in our opinion.

‘Dishes’ are broadly defined as anything that you can cook or serve food in - so in this list we’ve included all sorts of dishes! These particular dishes are not your average Plain Janes, however. They’re inspired by classic retro patterns and styles that will transport you to your grandmother’s kitchen from your childhood.

Without further ado, here are our favorite vintage-inspired dishes.
