Food was great. Never had a popover which was very good. Busy place! Try and save room for dessert--it's well worth it!!!!

We've been to Popovers several times and had good meals but the value for the buck isn't there. We have other places that we will frequent like Ceres, Colby's, or Cafe Vonsolin.

Nice and easy to eat here...order food at counter, grab a seat and pick up order when it's ready. They have seating outside as well which is a nice... More

It sounds like other people went to a different place than I did! Popovers on the Square is perfectly OK, but I thought it was completely average and without personality. I went for a quick late lunch on a Saturday.You pick a seat, then go to a counter and order food, hang around and pick it up when it is... More

We were looking for a light early dinner so popped in here for a bowl of soup (Tomato Bisque) and a popover. The popover was served with Maple Butter. Our first popover was not as full in the middle as I would have expected but the second one was perfect. It is right downtown with lots of charming stores all... More

Sometimes you happen upon just what you want by accident and that was the case recently with Popovers On The Square. We just wanted something quick for lunch to regenerate and get us going for the rest of the day. We had skipped breakfast and were ready for something but didn't want to overeat and ruin dinner. Standing at the... 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
