Plain old run-of-the-mill breakfast fare, mostly average at best. Decaf coffee was weak and flavorless. Sausage gravy tasted like it was out of a can. Won't be returning.

Mom & Pop place with a good breakfast, fast and pleasant service and a fair price. In a shopping center.

I went to get lunch to go. The device was great. The staff was very friendly. Both the waitresses acknowledged me and made sure I was taken care of. Even the gentleman bussing the tables was friendly and talkative. I ordered a Rueben and two of the house made biscuits. Tons of food for the price and one of the... More

Been here a few times. Waitresses are always friendly. Service is outstanding. It's a small diner with a few booths and tables, as well as a counter with stools. I had one of the best BLTs I've tasted (other than the ones I make at home😊). My husband says they have the best egg salad he has tasted anywhere at... More

It's an ok place for breakfast but nothing to rave about. When we visited Florida in December it was hard to find a really good place for breakfast.

Breakfast is a zoo at Papa's because this is a local favorite and there aren't many tables. If you like truck stops, you'll like Papa's. The omelets are filled with a velveeta knock-off and the vegetables arent sautéed first so they are raw and crunchy. The coffee is bitter.

Papa's is a local breakfast and lunch diner. The prices are good and the portions are good sized. They have several lunch specials offered everyday. The only drawback is they don't accept credit cards.

Great home-cooked meals. Good service. I stopped in for a weekend breakfast - and the only drawback was waiting a couple minutes for a table; although I could have taken a counter seat immediately. Food is served quickly. It's good, and there's a lot of it. I don't know when they started accepting credit cards, but they now do.

Thank Janet G
