Poppa's has a little something for everyone. They have daily breakfast, lunch and dinner specials. The staff is courteous and friendly. Leave room for a slice of one their home made apple pies.

Home-cooked food with a very nice selection of eggs, omelets, pancakes, and pastries. The restaurant is small and would not easily accommodate a large group, but they were extremely nice and would do their best.

I've read some of the reviews, particularly the ones complaining of small place, batting flies, etc. Not sure what you were expecting when you saw the place from the outside but it's exactly what we thought. Small, crapped and delicious! Country omelet was perfection and the cinnamon rolls were fantastic. If you're not looking for a "hole in the wall"... More

We recently moved to area and wanted to take in some local restaurants. Place always seemed crowded when we drove by. You won't be wowed by the surroundings but the food is great and priced right! They have different offerings other than traditional "breakfasts". Really good, lots of it, and well priced. Looking forward to more meals in the future!!!

Food was average. The place was crowded with tables but not people. The people there seemed to know each other. More like an Elk Lodge. The waitress was okay but seemed to want to hurry us out of there. Almost like a beginning of a horror movie.

Great place for breakfast and home cooked dinners. Cozy seating on small tables, good service and very good food. Daily specials are great to try because they're always very good. Could use some remodeling in the dining area so I'm guessing the kitchen could use a redo as well.

Go here almost every weekend for breakfast. The spinach feta omelette or the veggie omelette are my go to orders but the baked oatmeal is also amazing. The hashbrowns are always crisp and plentiful and I've always had more than enough coffee. Good hometown cafe.

Recently decided to revisit Papa's Place for breakfast. The restaurant was almost completely filled with patrons. It took the waitress several minutes to come to our table, took our beverage orders, delivered them and then disappeared. After about ten minutes, she returns to get our order and then promptly disappears again....this time for almost 20 minutes. It doesn't take 20... More

We stopped in here for breakfast. Portions were huge and food was fabulous. The place was a little small but it reminds me of a hometown diner. We loved it!
