Our innkeepers recommended this little gem and I was blown away by the pimento cheese, fried green tomato BLT. I usually only eat half a sandwich but I devoured this! Just the right amount of "heat " and the sour dough bread was the perfect base. I had the Maine ice tea and it was just right, not too sweet.... More

My wife and I went on a Friday evening around 6:30 PM. Seating was available. I hadn't been back for about 7 years; it has changed! This was our first dinner there. The place is cozy and doesn't seat many inside. And it's one of those places that it's hard to have a conversation in without speaking loudly. We ordered... More

We'd definetly go back when in the area. A little dissapointed some sides were extra. This is... More

My wife is a vegetarian because she is allergic to small amounts of meat. Even if eggs are cooked on the same griddle or if the same spatula is used to flip a pancake and sausage. The waitress at Hot Suppa was very nice. She warned us that the home fries could be contaminated. So my wife avoided those and... More

I have eaten here before when visiting, and really looked forward to my return. The breakfast menu is wonderful although it is important to get here early--Monday morning at 9:30 AM there was a line! I had biscuits and gravy with eggs and grits. Not only was every flavor perfect, it filled me up so I did not have to... More

Funky little place near the Portland Museum of Art. Got a Cuban sandwich which was very good including the pickles on the side. Wife got a fried green tomato BLT which she enjoyed.

Great start--some fancy fruit for the baby, yummy kombucha, but nitro coffee not special. Great food--until finding beef in my veggie omelette after asking specifically how grills were set up:-(. Overall nice presentation and friendly staff, but get your veggie act together a little more. Very sad wanted to love it.

This place is so hot that we had to wait about 20 minutes for a table, but it was worth it! Breakfast and lunch menus were both available at lunch time so I was able to sample their lovely French scrambled eggs with cheese, tomatoes, and peppers (almost fluffy) with a side of cole slaw and some sourdough toast. We... More

The menu at Hot Suppa is all made from scratch from quality ingredients; local goods are used whenever possible. Our renowned breakfast and lunch are served seven days a week, so you can get that corned beef hash fix whenever you’re jonesing. Dinner is available five nights a week, featuring our favorite dishes, like fried chicken & a waffle, falafel salad, and Maine oysters on the half shell. We offer a full bar service if you care to relax into the evening with a Porch Swing cocktail, or recover in the morning with a spicy Bloody Mary or cold draft beer.
