Restaurants like this are hard to find now in the Hamptons. Very reasonably priced, clean, fast service, extensive menu ranging from Greek specialties, New York deli fare, omelets, to a large selection of daily specials, and all entrees come with soup or salad. Newly renovated bathrooms. The owners take pride in serving their customers. I'm a fan!

Offering good food at an over priced fee - traditional food as well as some greek dishes , only with HAMPTONS pricing . Not at all a cheap place to eat ......If money isn 't an issue , enjoy your meal - it is good

This is a good breakfast or lunch stand by. Nothing fancy and I would not recommend their iced coffee (watered down old brew). Service is slow, but a good staple and local spot.

Been going here for years. The staff is always friendly. The food is always fresh and quickly served. There is usually a line for breakfast and lunch but it moves fast. I always tell people in front of me not to wait and sometimes they leave so the wait isn't so long.

John Papa's is a cute little diner! The prices are a little higher than your typical diner, but I wouldn't say it's overpriced. It is popular with just about everyone. The servers are accommodating, although quick which can come across as brisk. The food is so good for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I don't think this place can go wrong.... More

We never go wrong going here for breakfast/brunch/lunch. With a menu with a big selection of items, everyone is always happy with their choice. In our group, half eat breakfast, while the others opt for lunch! The eggs are prepared exactly how you want them, not greasy, and always fresh. The salads are always a favorite, but remember to ask... More

A typical diner cafe with your typical generic breakfast items with reasonable prices. The spinach eggs benedict were good and cooked perfectly. Some of us agreed the home fries could have been better but that is just our opinion. Very good service in a friendly atmosphere.
