Classic. Coffee shop

I love the people who run this place. It is very much a 50's diner: booths, linoleum and a counter. If you order a greek salad you will get a Greek salad- you can even add chicken. There is always soup. There is service with a smile. An iced tea is an iced tea not some artisanal version. The food... read more

Right in the middle of East Hampton Village off Main Street with a view of the parking lot, this is the real un-Hampton restaurant where you will want to go to get away from all the entitled snobs and day trippers. It is basically a typical family-run Greek diner with the usual dishes (Greek salad with feta cheese, simple fish... More

Get breakfast, lunch or dinner at this reliable small spot with booths and tables. American food with several daily lunch and dinner specials. Unpretentious.

No pretense, no frills, no dress code, no fancy - no problem. Simple decor & simple fare, well prepared and happily delivered. John Papas is a small-town America local Mom & Pop eatery. You will not be blown away: you'll be well fed and come back for more. It has no chic to it, just a wide variety of good... More

John Pappas has been the local go to place in East Hampton for years! Located in the village parking lot, with close proximity to the Hampton Jitney, it is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. However, it is closed for dinner on Wed. Nights! It is not a fancy place ... But at times there is a waiting line. It... More

The food is very good and the service is excellent. There is a wide variety of choices and the prices are reasonable. It's kid friendly and usually quite busy. I don't think I would order a steak dinner there but for salads, burgers, sandwiches, etc. it's terrific.

If you're looking for a quick and easy diner style meal, John Papas is fine. The burgers, omelettes and basic salads are fine. On the salads, one would be well advised to ask for the dressing on the side since they are usually very generously dressed. One time, the server enticed us into getting a prime rib which was a...
