The Centerpiece is a warm slice of bread pudding that's been topped with everything you could want, from ice cream to white chocolate to fresh fruit. This is a must. Plus I'm told the carrot cake is the best!

The hostess could not have been nicer, she pulled a chair over so we could sit while we were waiting for a table. The food was delicious, the pastries were good. The popovers were amazing. They even passed the iced T test. Which meant it was very good, everything was very good, we wished we had one of these restaurants... More

Popovers graciously donated petit fours for An Evening by the Sea at the Wentworth by the Sea Country Club, Rye, NH for the fundraiser of My Breast Cancer Support. The food is consistently delicious and full of flavor. Store is crazy busy and staff is gracious and nice. Don't miss this landmark when in Portsmouth, NH

Yummy treats tempt you to sample many goodies, but start with a popover and a cup of coffee. Large and airy, just the way a popover should be. The hint of maple in the butter tops it off.

Great for lunch, snacks, or that perfect baked treat when exploring Portsmouth. The popovers themselves are amazing.

After a morning of touring this place hit the spot. Roast beef sandwich, chowder and popovers were excellent. A little pricey but the food was good.

Quite busy and difficult to make your order on Saturday morn'. Food is good although fruit cup provided is not fresh. They have wonderful desserts.

My parents told us about this wonderful bakery in Portsmouth that served the best éclairs they had ever tasted. So, while we were in Portsmouth we hunted down this wonderful little bakery and ordered éclairs! They were to die for! We also heard from the locals that Popovers has the best breakfast in town! I highly recommend stopping in for... More

A friend and I stopped in here for a nosh during our recent day trip to Portsmouth. I've been a few times before. They offer a wide array of menu items, but are famous for their popovers. We got good service with a smile, and sat indoors, where it was quieter than on the patio. My friend ordered an iced... More
