There are so many places to eat on Rt 1 in Milford that it's difficult to rate where this one ranks among them. However, if you are staying at any of the hotels on Old Gate Lane, this is definitely a decent and convenient place for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It's basically a diner, but it's got a pretty extensive... More

Pop's is a great place to have a casual meal. Breakfast served all day which always makes my kids happy. Great sandwiches too! Portions are large and wait staff is very friendly.

Today I tried Pop's Club sandwich. A club made of turkey, corned beef & pastrami with sauerkraut & Russian dressing. It's big, it's filling and it was great! I highly recommend it, providing you cardiologist doesn't find out!

Dependable food, good service! This spot is right down the road from the Mall, where the movie theaters are located in Milford. Take the ride, and skip the mall offerings after you see a movie. You'll be happier. There are healthy offerings, and the food is plentiful. I had the burger (big) and sweet tater fries. The fries were cooked... More

Pop's moved a few years ago from a corner spot in a little plaza on New Haven Ave to a larger building with excellent parking on Old Gate Lane in Milford. In this case, bigger does mean better. Their varied menu offers everything from delicious omelette combinations (feel free to create your own) to Greek specialties. The counter service is... More

When in the area, make sure you have breakfast at Pop's. The service is excellent. As a family run establishment it has a variety of food options. I personally love their breakfasts. Be sure to try their pancake and French toast specials.

We stopped here for lunch. First time at their new location. We were seated immediately. Their menu has plenty of choices. We were pleased with our meals. We plan to come back.
