Popover cafe

Looks interesting...Anyone ever been?

  1. Just for brunch and thought it was horrible. "French toast" was literally dry bread, that I then poured syrup over. Yuck. I didn't think the popover was anything great either.

    1. It's very cute and a good neighborhood destination. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat there, but the wait is short. I do like the cranberry, bacon, cheddar omelet at brunch.

      The popovers are good but only if they're hot. I like to open it up as soon as I get it and drop in a big glob of strawberry butter. Really, the popover is a butter delivery device.

      1. The menu does look promising, and my friend had a great rosemary chicken sandwich (I had eggs and sausage - fairly difficult to mess up). I didn't like the popovers either - thought I was the only one!

        It is cute and accommodates kids pretty well, but I wouldn't go out of my way to eat there.
