Excellent ambiance and service. Food so creative! Dinner entrees served with yummy sides. Each entree had its own assortment of veggies and starch to create an amazing meal. Cherry cobbler was the prize winning dessert as should be in the Cherry Capital.

We enjoyed a wonderful meal here during film festival. They hold half of their tables for walk-ins, so you don’t have to have a reservation. The beet risotto was absolutely amazing. The Key Lime Shrimp was nicely flavored and the veggie curry sounded divine.

Delicious food in an unassuming mid-century diner setting. Very friendly waiters who will tell you honestly about their personal favorites and don't-like'so-muchs. I loved the mango curry, which is made with real mango slices. The salads are simple and excellent, too.

Just landed TVC on the way to Leland, too hungry (and grumpy) to make it all the way. Decided to hit the main Street and just happened to park out front of this place. Confirmed on TA it wouldn't kill us and wow, glad we...More

Visited Poppycock's on Wednesday, July 18th with a friend. We arrived at 5:50 p.m. and were promptly seated - right next to the server station/bar - not the ideal table by far, but we chose to overlook that. We waited approximately 10 minutes for our...More
