Great breakfast and lunch diner

Papa's is a local breakfast and lunch diner. The prices are good and the portions are good sized. They have several lunch specials offered everyday. The only drawback is they don't accept credit cards.

It's an ok place for breakfast but nothing to rave about. When we visited Florida in December it was hard to find a really good place for breakfast.

Breakfast is a zoo at Papa's because this is a local favorite and there aren't many tables. If you like truck stops, you'll like Papa's. The omelets are filled with a velveeta knock-off and the vegetables arent sautéed first so they are raw and crunchy. The coffee is bitter.

Great home-cooked meals. Good service. I stopped in for a weekend breakfast - and the only drawback was waiting a couple minutes for a table; although I could have taken a counter seat immediately. Food is served quickly. It's good, and there's a lot of it. I don't know when they started accepting credit cards, but they now do.

Food was excellent. If you are looking for good food and no atmosphere then this place is for you. It is a simple basic diner with good food.

If you want a typical breakfast, nothing fancy, this is the place to go. We have been going there for 10 years and it is always the same...good. The service and food are excellent. It is in a strip center by Winn /Dixie on Hwy 50. in Clermont. They serve breakfast and lunch and close after lunch. I usually get... More

We decided to to stop for breakfast as my daughter loves diners and breakfast. We were not disappointed in any way. The friendly wait staff were busy, efficient and very helpful. The food was very good and the prices were just what you would expect for a mom and pop diner. I would recommend Papa's Diner for their great food,... More

Not fancy, but good, home style food at a reasonable price. Pleasant wait staff in a traditional diner. Portions are substantial, so you want go away hungry. Chile cheese dog was a gracious plenty for lunch, and the spaghetti with meat balls made supper as well as lunch. Give them a try when you are hungry and maybe in a... More
