    Littered with teddy bears with popovers the size of an ostrich egg, this place is memorable not just for brunch, but forever. The pop art sandwich is made of dreams.

    Damn! Worth the trip - and I came from Murray Hill. I can't describe a Popover and I can't decide a Flopover, but both were amazing! Service could be a little faster. (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    My favorite place in Manhattan! The popovers are huge and taste great! They come straight from the oven and are served with strawberry butter. It's a small place, but food and staff are great!

    Delicious! Best Kobe corned beef hash. Eggs were just like I like them. Yoke dipped in popover was pure heaven.

    Very good burgers, and I'm a fan of the pomegranate shake. Do yourself a favor, go on a cold night and get a warm popover. It's like a big hug from grandma for your stomach.

    Cranberry bacon cheddar omlette is excellent. Ask them to bring the popover at the same time so it's still hot when you get your food.

    Don't forget to ask for Apple Butter w/ your popover. Great flavor and all natural!

    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.

    The whole thing's a bit on the expensive side for a diner. However the lump crab omlette is great. Served with a popover.

    Get an omelette and stuff it inside a popover. You can thank me later.

    The popeye is like a party in itself! Get here early on the weekends.

    Don't get the health omelette! Seriously not worth the saved calories. Go for broke and get something with gruyere or some other kind of creamy cheesy deliciousness. Also go here if you like horseradi

    Our corned beef hash was burnt... No flavor at all. Try the eggs Benedict i heard it was better.

    popovers are good, not great. lattes are dismal. there are better brunch options in the area such as isabella's and sarabeths.

    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.

    This place use to make an amazing Chicken "Pop" Pie... And then they got a new chef... Who really should go back to culinary school. Very disappointed.

    Most of the tables at the popover cafe are pretty small so don't try to come with a large party.

    Overrated. And reeks of egg. I loathe their popovers. But the pancakes aren't terrible.

    The food is mediocre at best. I'd rather save my money and go to a diner. Beware of any Southern inspired dishes. Yuck.
