Wonderful lunch

My vegetarian wide and daughter really enjoyed the offerings. Service was OK but not great, but the food was eclectic and very good. If you are shopping downtown, make this your lunch stop.

Wife and I had a wonderful experience for dinner at Poppycocks. The restaurant is bistro like, mostly booths, very comfortable for 2 a little tight for 4. Service was efficient and friendly. Bar pours were generous! My caesar salad was one of the best I've had, pasta dish was hot and who would of thought to put a little dijon... More

Everything we tried was delicious, pasta, Caesar, eggplant special and sea salt chocolate caramel was all delicious and interesting. A bit of a twist to each dish. Always love excellent service.

We went for dessert after our meal at a different restaurant. It was very rich and high quality yet a reasonable price. I would return and I would try something other than dessert next time, considering how good the dessert was.

We went here on a whim while on vacation. We all had different things and they were all good. Try the Beef Brisket Stroganoff- delicious! This is not your mother's stroganoff. Very tasty! Had a fish special and it was also very good. Nice atmosphere, good service. Definitely stop here if you are on Traverse City!

Went with friends for lunch. Had one of the specials. It was a pastry with chicken, asparagus, cheese and fruit . It was incredible ! Had the soup sampler appetizer with 3 soups. There was a chunky tomato soup, cauliflower cheese, and . Wow! Hard to pick a favorite.

Kind of a hipster vibe. But they deliver. The place is warm and inviting, with a small bar, tables and a lot of wood booths. Very cozy, and decorated with bright artwork available for sale. The service was friendly and attentive. Especially to our dietary needs. The menu features a wide variety of appetizers, soups, salads, sandwiches and entrees, some... More

Pita appetizer was delicious as well as the cherry salad. Wait staff was very friendly. I will want to come back and try the homemade pasta.

Things started off wonderful when we walked in for our reservation. Greeted promptly with a smile and seated. Our server asked for our drink orders and knew the adult beverage selection quite well. I had looked over the menu before visiting, but changed my mind as to what to try because I wasn't really hungry for the entree I had... More

We dined here again for the first time in a couple of years and it did not disappoint. My wife and I both had the nights specials and they were excellent. Downtown Traverse City is one of our favorite places to visit and having dinner at Poppycocks just adds to that.
