We decided to try to eat at locally owned restaurants on our trip and read the reviews about Pappas' Sweet Shop. It was a good lunch. My half chicken salad sandwich and small house salad was fresh and tasty but I really enjoyed the bread the most. The cafe was not fancy, but clean and the staff friendly. Lots of... More

Thank You for stopping by and giving us a try. The chicken salad sandwich dates back to 1923 when my Grandpa started making it and is still today one of our favorites. I appreciate the nice review. More

Stopped in based on the reviews posted. Sorry, I can't agree with those glowing reviews. We had chicken fried steak that was very heavy on the breading and the steak was very thin. The green beans were canned and poorly seasoned. Bright spot - The service was prompt and friendly. One of our waitresses said she had only worked there... More

Loved this diner! Prices were excellent. My husband liked the meat loaf and I liked my "slider" size hamburger with sweet potato fries. Ice cream for desert was $1. Blue Velvet cake (a takeoff on Red Velvet) was homemade and was $2. Loaves of fresh bread are for sale at the cashier and a Local told me they usually run... More

Pappas' Sweet Shop is always a good choice for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The Breakfast burrito with spicy, green chili is a favorite.

This pasta dish was good - wish I had ordered the Alfredo sauce on the side, as the portion was VERY generous for my taste. Grilled chicken was alright and the garlic toast seemed to be from freshly made bread - yummy! Service was excellent - thank you, Nancy, for your friendly attentiveness!
