Very good food that won't break your wallet. The salads are immense and the omelets are sublime. You can even order beer and wine. Place gets packed on the weekends so plan ahead. They have early bird specials for dinner so come early if u can. Coffee is good and not an ugly waitress in sight! Highly recommend.

Very nice atmosphere, attentive staff and good food! I'm a local and this is my go-to place for breakfast, lunch and dinner when I'm in the mood for a variety of diner food!

I should start by saying I love these kind of places - the one where the locals appear to eat. Pops has a basic menu with seafood, salads, pasta, and breakfast all day. While house hunting in CT, I ate there several times (it's close to the Hyatt Place) - breakfast and dinner. The menu is varied, the desserts looked... More

I stopped here en route to NYC and was expecting more of a small old fashioned diner but it turned out to be a modern up to date restaurant with progressive finishes. There is upscale tile on the floors and the walls and there is a hard ceiling with a cove which has blue neon in it. the restrooms were... More

Pop's has moved but the 'place' is still the same. Great service, very good food (the pancakes however are the BEST) at reasonable prices. Great value for the entire family,

the food is tasty and plentiful--definitely everything is made fresh--the staff is very friendly and the atmosphere makes you feel at home--there desserts are also homemade --really a good place for breakfast, lunch or dinner if you're on a budget --this place is just as good as any expensive restaurant

I went to Pops at the recommendation of the front desk person at the hotel I was staying at. Great recommendation!!! The service was fantastic. My waitress treated me right away and was attentive the entire time I was there. The food was timely and really too much. I had the chicken Alfredo. It was good but could have fed... More

I had heard mixed things before choosing Pops for breakfast on my Friday off. What a mistake! I was promptly seated, but when I ordered one of the specials "Banana Nut Pancakes", the menu offered no further description. They were awful. Pancakes with nuts and chunked bananas, with no flavor. Very bland food. The hash browns were inedible, again no... More

We were staying at the Hilton Garden Inn and wanted a breakfast place close by. Pops was a good choice. While the menu offered pretty standard breakfast fare the service was friendly the place was clean and bright and the food was well prepared. We opted for a side of pancakes with our eggs instead of toast and potatoes and... More
