Wonderful breakfasts, even (and especially) the eggs benedict. Good food and good value, with ambience a nostalgia buff will love. If you expect lime wedges in your water or hazlenut-flavored espresso, go somewhere else. For really well done genuine American "comfort food" you can't go wrong here!

This restaurant is a special destination for our group of guys. We travel from all over the metro area to meet at Papa's.
While the hot beef sandwich is what originally drew us in, the hot turkey sandwich on Friday is just as wonderful. Slices of 'real' beef and turkey matched with mashed potatoes and gravy.
The servings are huge and the service a first rate. Always served piping hot and never a disappointment, the food never lets you down. Big chain restaurants can't match what this cafe has to offer.
The small town 'feeling' of this cafe is another plus. The locals know where to find good food and you'll see them each time you visit Papa's. We'll be there, again, April fifth.

I have eaten at Papa's many times of the years and consider it my "go to" place for a great breakfast. The best pancakes around, great omelets (try the Papa's own- aka the square foot) and terrific service. You won't be disappointed!

Papa's is my favorite place for breakfast (served all day). It has a down-home, cozy feel, and the food beats the chain restaurants any day. I especially love their belgian waffles, but everything is delicious. Always a great selection of omelettes and breakfast specials. Lunch and dinner menu too. Great place to relax and chat with friends.
