In an area generally over run with chain restaurants and cookie cutter grub hubs, the poppyseed is a refreshing and wonderful oasis from the mall's hustle and bustle. A great drink menu and an awesome salad selection are backed by some amazing chiabata sandwiches. We will return soon!!!

Stopped in for the first time in at least 15 years (yes this place has done some time). Seated a few minutes after arriving, but I understand as the restaurant was quite busy. Waitress was friendly enough. Menu is huge, loaded with fantastic sandwich, salad, pasta, and burger options. I had a hard time deciding and would really like to... More

I enjoy visiting the Poppyseed when I am in the McKinley Mall area. The food is good, the restaurant is casual,the atmosphere could use a little updating. The shrimp marinara was presented nicely and was very good. The sauce was chunky but homemade and was excellent over whole wheat penne. There are gluten free options in this restaurant, (corn based... More

I go there for salads--a great variety. My favorite is the April Showers. They got me at the goat cheese!

Poppyseed is one of our favorite restaurants. Food has always been of high quality. Because of this, we visited Poppyseed on Saturday. As always, we were greeted promptly and seated. Server service was very good. My wife, ordered the chicken wrap. As always , the wrap was fresh, loaded with chicken. For myself, ordered a Reuben. The Reuben was served... More

Great restaurant for salads and sandwiches. It is a great gathering place for friends and family. Go early or late for lunch always crowded at noon.

There are numerous chain restaurants close to the McKinley Mall, but the Poppyseed has them beat. It is small and you sometimes must wait for a table. There is no bar to wait in, just a small front area. The table turnover is fairly quick, though. The restaurant is almost all booths and comfortable lighting. Open for lunch and dinner,... More

I love this restaurant! I have been going here for years and chose it for my birthday lunch. There is a nice selection of everything-and many vegetarian dishes so my youngest was very happy! No reservations-so we went a little early to be sure we could have seating for 8 including a highchair. Service was excellent!- and most pleasant. My... More
