  • Try the Popovers with Strawberry Butter
  • Most of the tables at the popover cafe are pretty small so don't try to come with a large party.
  • The food is mediocre at best. I'd rather save my money and go to a diner. Beware of any Southern inspired dishes. Yuck.
  • Incredible cheese grits.
  • popovers are good, not great. lattes are dismal. there are better brunch options in the area such as isabella's and sarabeths.
  • Really good burgers
  • Flopover, aegean omelette, lemon twist pancakes... All excellent and great service!
  • They give you this fresh hot popover but the strawberry spread they give you is frozen rock hard! Wth... how do you spread this?! Wish they'd whip they spread before they give it you, but its prepackd
  • Get an omelette and stuff it inside a popover. You can thank me later.
  • Try the Eggs Popeye - one of my favorite dishes in the world and unique to this place.
  • I heard the popovers are made from angels wings and unicorn horns and kitten tears. Im not sure if its true, but they sure do taste yummy.
  • Long lines. But the pop overs with strawberry butter are worth it.
  • Symphony Space members get a free glass of wine with the purchase of an entree. Sign up and save!
  • Ok. Not Hour Wait Good though.
  • Popovers are fluffy, crispy pastry clouds of heaven.
  • Essentially an upscale diner with a gimmick. The food is fine, the namesakes pretty good. Not a destination, but a solid choice if you're nearby.
  • Shut down.
  • Amazing Popovers and food all around... so sad they are closing on January 5th, you better hurry!
  • Closes after 32 years on 1/5/2014.list their lease.
  • Not a friendly restaurant with baby, large party .. An hour wait? Really.... Food and service are horrible.
