Another Good Poppins

It's the same formula, attentive and prompt service, clean café and tasty food at competitive prices. I've been to a few Poppins lately and they all seem to operate to a good budget standard. Order at table, food is served and then take chitty to cash desk. This one wasn't accepting credit cards... read more

Went to poppins in Alton for a breakfast last week. The restaurant was not very busy but they had plenty of staff on. I ordered the bigger breakfast which if I'm honest was pretty average and did seem rather expensive for the quality. I would return but would look to get something different I think.

Had breakfast here today...it was in no way very good but I have eaten worse for more money in Alton which has a glut of very so-so cafes. This one is certainly one of the better ones along with Bubble and Squeak!

Had a brekker here in December, very oily fry-up and was disappointed coz I had a really well prepared ( and well filled!) bacon sandwich here some months ago.

I'm sorry but it's a typical builders 'caff'. You can get the usual fry up, breakfasts, teas coffee's etc here. You can sit out in a nice day and watch the world go by as it's slightly cleaner outside than indoors. That's about all I have to say I'm afraid

Although you may be put off going here as there always seems to be a Mötley Crüe sat outside of it smoking, it really is a great cafe. The staff are all really friendly and the service is quick. The food is basic but you can't fault it at all, plus it's cheap! Recommend the milkshakes, huge and really tasty

It just amazes me why all cafes/ restaurants aren't like this, this franchise has it exactly right, I've said this before but here we go again, the picture you see on your menu is exactly what you get on your plate, brilliant finally no more let downs on what you expect. Will definitely be back here again. Good food at... More

As suggested by a reviewer , I tried the Bacon sandwich ( Mine was toasted as per instructions!) and it was very good after adding some strong English moutarde! Hit the spot!!
