We were so excited about going to Popovers on the Square! We had stopped in the day prior to check out the place and the staff was so wonderful and friendly. We loved the look of the popovers and ordered a popover with maple butter AND a popover filled with scrambled eggs and American cheese.....EACH! MARVELOUS!!!!! The food was fantastic... More

Wonderful desserts that were shared by the six of us. Fresh delicious coffee! Nice service. They actually have popovers served several ways. Would loved to have had the lobster salad in one!

Heading up to Maine from Boston, stopped in to get something to eat quickly. Lots of delicious choices, and while I ordered two cookies for the ride, I also had them box up a piece of carrot cake and lemon raspberry cake for "later". I am a true fan of real carrot cake, and the slice was enormous and all... More

Had brunch here today with friends. The breakfast quiche was very good. The Mediterranean Chicken Wrap was excellent. My friend had a gluten free sandwich and said the bread was the best gluten free bread he's had. The pastries look and taste incredible. The popovers are really good with the maple butter. Sadly they said they couldn't make gluten free... More

I sought out this destination after reading about it online, as opportunities for popovers (a happy childhood memory) are few and far between. The popovers are massive. If I have any criticism, it would be that the ratio of crust to dough could benefit from a little less of the former. It would also be nice to have a choice... More

We called in at Popover for lunch. It was fine. Good value and more than acceptable food. On the strength of our first visit we returned for breakfast the next day. Sadly, this was poor. Half hearted service and mediocre food. Choose your time of day!

Popovers were yummy, salad above average, and turkey sandwich gave us the option to choose a tasty gluten free bread. The pastries looked delicious, and place was packed with locals.

We visit Portsmouth often -- 2 to 3 times a year and this is one of our must stops. The location can't be beat - right on Market Square - and outdoor seating, too! The sandwiches are above average -- I particularly enjoy the Monte Cristo, but we haven't had any negative meals. You can also get salads, quiche, and... More

Popovers was recommended for lunch by the staff at the Governor Langdon House, and lived up to their praise. The soup special was a spicy Southwest vegetable offering, which preceded an unusually tasty BLT sandwich. The French roast coffee was hot and satisfying. Popovers is also a bakery, and the dessert offerings looked amazing, though we'll save those for another... More

Visited Popovers on our way to Maine. Main reason was to check out the small town of Portsmouth. Got there at about 9.30AM and the place was packed. Fortunately; they had outdoor seating. They have some nice variety of sandwiches and breakfast items on the menu. However the food itself is OK. not great. I have had better sandwiches. Its... More
