This place is like home. I always order a Greek salad with tuna salad on top. Or a Greek burger. It's friendly, comfortable, no-nonsense, and unpretentious. A godsend in the ridiculously pretentious scene that poor old East Hampton has become. That said, it's absurdly overpriced. My favorite Greek salad with tuna on top is something like $17 bucks. C'Mon! I still go to John Papas . . . I'll always go . . .but, you know, I could eat a much fancier and more delectable meal at, say, Cittanuova or even Yama Q for that. Anyway, John Papas is more or less the only place for miles where you can have a basic eggs/bacon/toast kind of breakfast. Bless them.

While in Montauk, we decided to take in a movie. The closest was the theater in East Hampton. Next we wanted to find a place to eat, with a casual atmosphere. While searching on line we came across John Papas Cafe. We weren't disappointed. A very nice breakfast menu, which was tempting but we chose a cheeseburger and salad. A great place to take the family. Not a large restaurant but we were lucky to get a table right away. I have feeling that may not be the case all the time! The prices were good and the service friendly and great.

This modest restaurant run by a Greek Family is a wonderful stop for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The menu is extensive (almost diner size) and everything is prepared fresh. Great place for a casual meal with the kids or dinner before a movie. They serve sandwiches and burgers, salads, breakfast all day, plus a handful of specials each day. There is something for everyone and John Papas is definitely one of the best values in the Hamptons.

When you are in East Hampton - make it a point to stop and visit John Papas Cafe - we enjoyed breakfast with the locals..... note - it is off Montauk Highway in the rear of the shops.....well worth the visit!
