I loved this place! We stopped here twice after long hikes in the park for their famous hot popovers with blueberry iced tea. Not inexpensive, maybe $11, but totally worth it for great service, excellent food and amazing atmosphere (we ate outside).

Tea and popovers were $10.50 during the 2015 season, The Jordan Pond House is now closed for the season. The restaurant started service at 11:00 am, so yes you can get them at 11:00am.
