Hopkin's is a local restaurant that serves unique and delicious sandwiches and salads using fresh ingredients. I average eating here once every two weeks. Love it!

Hopkins have been delighting their loyal customers for 20 years or more. They do it by creating interesting sandwiches, good vegetarian choices, You can get a slice of cake, which changes from day to day, and home made tray bake type desserts. In winter they do a soup. The counter service is efficient and swift. A line to the door clears in about 5 minutes. Hopkins has a large regular clientele. There are many choices but Hopkins is always busy for lunch. Not the place if you want a big burger and a plateful of fries. This is a healthy eating location.

Back in Ttown for the first time in 20 years and was pleased to discover Hopkins is still thriving. I had the classic Picnic sandwich (turkey, ham, potatoe salad, peas, tomatoes, onion, etc) and it was just as I remember it...wonderful! My wife had the Chunky Chicken Melt sandwich (cashew chicken salad, provolone, mushrooms, lettuce, tomatoe, etc) and it was fantastic as well. For dessert, we had the equally delicious (and again, still around after 20 years) the Congo bar and the Heath Bar...unbelievably good. Great to see that some of the best things in life are classics and last a lifetime.

My family has been eating at Hopkins (all locations) for 20+ years. It's a walk up counter with ample seating room in an air conditioned enviro with some seating outdoors. They have,without a doubt, the most extensive selection of unique sandwiches you'll find in town. My favorite is the Blackbird. It is fresh chunks of turkey, with sliced cucumber, lettuce, onions, black olives, cream cheese, and sesame seeds on a hot steamed whole wheat roll. I prefer mine on rye/pumpernickle swirl bread and delete the onions,add sprouts. Try the Guac too, it's been our family's favorite for years.
They have three locations now, so they are convenient to you on all sections of town, except the far west side. Very,very,fresh and tasty! They are locally owned and operated and have been one of Tallahassee's hidden gems forever!

Used to order from there a lot for client lunches, and I've eaten there on my own several times. The service is just ok but the menu choices and quality of food are awesome. Love the Blackbird and so many other items on the menu. Wish they had another location other than the 2.
