Wonderful, quaint, menu you'll want to come back to time and time again near the Mc Kinley Mall.

The staff is very friendly and helpful with vast knowledge of the menu. Many gluten free and vegetarian items on the menu. The homemade tomato basil soup is the best. Very mild and flavorful. The sandwiches and salads are so enjoyable and just plain good. This was my first visit, taken there by a... read more

I have been going to the Poppyseed for over 20 years and it just continues to get better and better. It has been refurbished but the food remains imaginative and delicious. I have had sandwiches that I never would have thought of making and the homemade chips are delightful. I intend to eat my way through the menu. It is... More

This restaurant has devoted customers. A bit old fashioned in a good way. Their all booth seating is a little claustrophobic...I feel like I'm a telemarketer in some mass office with cubicles. I was there for a late mid week lunch...clientele seemed mostly women with their mothers and young kids, an odd businessman or two, and ladies who lunch. Prices... More

Our family has been frequenting Poppyseed for over 10 years. I'm not sure why I haven't written a review yet. As a vegetarian, the variety of choices is great. Muddy shoes (a homemade black bean burger) served with quinoa salad is a favorite, as is the Fall Harvest salad. The vegetarian chili and summer gazpacho are not to be missed.... More

Excellent service, comfortable ambiance, interesting selection of regional beers. I ate here several nights during business trip. Baja chicken one night, scallops over pasta second night. House dressings on salad excellent

Usually stop when going to the mall. Nice location across the way. Usually get one of the salads. They're VG. Nice setting and service is good, also! Better than most of the choices at the mall. Recommend, especially for a nice lunch. Some unique menu choices which set it apart from the ho-hum chains. Will return.

My family has frequently eaten at this restaurant and we have never had a bad meal. The food is always fresh, well presented, and tastes great! Family favorites-buffalo chicken wing dip, baked jumbo cheese ravioli, macho man ciabatta, roast beef sandwich. There's something for everyone to eat!

Many choices and I can say I have never been unhappy! All fresh, tasty and eye appealing! Favorite is the Cashew Chicken Salad Croissant! Whether it is a business lunch (Have had their catering and it too is sensational) or a family dinner, everyone will go home happy!

Around a mall it's hard to find a restaurant that isn't a chain with great options. This one has it with its unique sandwiches and salads, also has great entrees for dinner too. Very family friendly! This is a must stop when we are out shopping in the area!

This is a hidden gem! Well, not so hidden because it's always packed with people in the know. There is usually a wait, but they are very good at turning tables. The food is awesome! I have never had a bad meal here. Love, love, love this place!
