“Great lunch spot”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

After a morning of touring this place hit the spot. Roast beef sandwich, chowder and popovers were excellent. A little pricey but the food was good.

“Youthful Atmosphere”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

Quite busy and difficult to make your order on Saturday morn'. Food is good although fruit cup provided is not fresh. They have wonderful desserts.

“Excellent Chocolate Eclairs”
Reviewed August 15, 2014

My parents told us about this wonderful bakery in Portsmouth that served the best éclairs they had ever tasted. So, while we were in Portsmouth we hunted down this wonderful little bakery and ordered éclairs! They were to die for! We also heard from the locals that Popovers has the best breakfast in town! I highly recommend stopping in for a sweet treat! They had a lot to choose from!

“Yummy Popovers, Nice Cafe'”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

A friend and I stopped in here for a nosh during our recent day trip to Portsmouth. I've been a few times before. They offer a wide array of menu items, but are famous for their popovers. We got good service with a smile, and sat indoors, where it was quieter than on the patio. My friend ordered an iced tea with bagel, and she enjoyed it. I had a large, warmed popover with maple butter... light and delicious. It is also not too expensive. We will come back.

“Worth repeat visits”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

First off, we went here 3 times. And we kept going back even though they were having problems with their air conditioning and this was mid July.

We hit this place for breakfast once, which was pretty good, if not memorable. I had the egg sandwich, she had the popover with scrambled eggs. Like I said, good but pretty standard.

The real winning trips were early evening coffee and snack visits. Iced coffees were just what we needed and their mini pies and fruit tart just can't be beat. Grab the outdoor seats if you can, very relaxing and fun to just people watch.

In short, just go already.
