A 23rd Ave Eating Institution

Take a break from touring 23rd ave and watch the world go by as you eat good food and sip wine with everyone else. This place can get pretty busy on weekends, but the wait never seemed long. I've eaten here many times over the years and the food has good and the service terrific.

This is a great restaurant to take out your teenager for early happy hour. I took my daughter out during the week and we had a lovely time and the food was a amazing. We shared their famous french onion soup and several items from the HH menu. Of course we had to have the chocolate cake. Plenty to take... More

Overall, Papa Hydn's is pretty good. But on Saturday I tried the Omlettee: Stuffed with cheese, bacon, etc. according to the menu. Not so:( Last time I ate powdered eggs- or the consistency of powdered eggs - was Vietnam. Smallish even then and the "stuffing of cheese and bacon" virtually non-existent. Never again.

We hadn't dined here in a couple of years (we are from Eugene) but decided to have lunch there yesterday. It did NOT disappoint! My husband and I split a salad and split the scallop risotto, both of which were excellent. Our daughter had the salmon and it was FABULOUS! My husband who never orders salmon (he's a big seafood...

We've been eating at Papa Haydn since the mid 80's and are still going back! Great foo. They are known for their desserts -- which are getting pretty high priced...!!!

My fiancé and her family have been coming here for a long time. I was lucky enough to have my first visit last week. The food and service was awesome! Highly recommend the French onion soup and the croque Madame. Their specialty drinks were on point as well. Will be back next time in the area!

I come here every time I visit my daughter in Portland. I have been to Vienna many times and Papa Hayden's atmosphere, food and service is as good as any of the famous cafes I have visited in Vienna. Delicious food and desserts and a European ambiance.

menu is simple, portions perfect. small dining areas. Staff is wonderful, polite and alive. nice wine selection I ordered the CROQUE MONSIEUR and was disappointed. for me a perfect Croque Monsieur is a delicate balance of brioche, ham cheese and bechamel. this sandwich was very oily. however my guest ordered the Salmon - excellent, chicken fried sandwich excellent, and a...

You might want to share as the portions are generous for as rich as they are ... we didn't and survived to tell the tale :-) The most difficult part was picking only one; they all look so yummy. I went with the chocolate mousde cube ... my mouth is watering just thinking about it. Girlfriend had the lemon curd... More
