It's OK but I find that the prices are OTT compared to what is on offer 300 yards away, but to be fair the staff are OK and the café is clean

We popped into Poppins for a quick lunch during a short stay in the area. Although the food was well cooked and served hot my wife and I felt it was just basic stuff by that I mean as an example shop bought sliced bread etc. I don't mean this to be a negative but it's just not what we... More

Very friendly staff, when asked if we could swap something on the menu for my girlfriends little boy the staff couldn't be more helpful. They even gave him a lollypop afterwards, only downside is I didn't get one! Clean and quick service, like any cafe no frills just hot simple food is all you need sometimes! Been here a couple...

Went to poppins in Alton for a breakfast last week. The restaurant was not very busy but they had plenty of staff on. I ordered the bigger breakfast which if I'm honest was pretty average and did seem rather expensive for the quality. I would return but would look to get something different I think.

Had breakfast here today...it was in no way very good but I have eaten worse for more money in Alton which has a glut of very so-so cafes. This one is certainly one of the better ones along with Bubble and Squeak!

Had a brekker here in December, very oily fry-up and was disappointed coz I had a really well prepared ( and well filled!) bacon sandwich here some months ago.

It's the same formula, attentive and prompt service, clean café and tasty food at competitive prices. I've been to a few Poppins lately and they all seem to operate to a good budget standard. Order at table, food is served and then take chitty to cash desk. This one wasn't accepting credit cards at this time. (13 Nov 2015)

I'm sorry but it's a typical builders 'caff'. You can get the usual fry up, breakfasts, teas coffee's etc here. You can sit out in a nice day and watch the world go by as it's slightly cleaner outside than indoors. That's about all I have to say I'm afraid

Although you may be put off going here as there always seems to be a Mötley Crüe sat outside of it smoking, it really is a great cafe. The staff are all really friendly and the service is quick. The food is basic but you can't fault it at all, plus it's cheap! Recommend the milkshakes, huge and really tasty
