I love this friendly diner. So many upscale restaurants in this town and I miss diners with the taste of "days gone by." Always a board with great breakfast and dinner specials. Now that Oct.is here they are open for dinner Mon -Sat.

Andy's crab cake eggs benedict was to die for! The homefries were perfectly cooked. My boyfriend got the corn beef hash, which he said was very good. Service was good. We will definitely return in the future.

Popi's breakfast menu is along the lines of typical, but there is no substitute for a good cook. We had eggs over medium, pancakes and bacon, nothing fancy, but the eggs were exactly right, the bacon extra crispy as we asked, and the pancakes fluffy...More

There are a lot of great places to eat in Bradenton but this one beats them all. Their biscuits are fresh and made every day and are the size of your fist. The chicken with gravy on biscuits for breakfast will keep you full for...More
