Two stars for the biscuit. The rest is a bit too greasy for me. Home fries are somewhat soaked in grease and I couldn't even finish the bacon... I mean who can't finish bacon!? Saw some good reviews but I'm def not a fan. Prob won't return. Sorry Papa, I tried.

A great find tucked in a shopping center. A small place, seating is limited but the staff is great and the food even better. We were there on a Saturday morning and they were busy...a full house. We tried the sausage gravy and biscuits and were definitely satisfied. Portions are generous, prices reasonable. What better way to start the day?

Plain old run-of-the-mill breakfast fare, mostly average at best. Decaf coffee was weak and flavorless. Sausage gravy tasted like it was out of a can. Won't be returning.

I went to get lunch to go. The device was great. The staff was very friendly. Both the waitresses acknowledged me and made sure I was taken care of. Even the gentleman bussing the tables was friendly and talkative. I ordered a Rueben and two of the house made biscuits. Tons of food for the price and one of the... More

Been here a few times. Waitresses are always friendly. Service is outstanding. It's a small diner with a few booths and tables, as well as a counter with stools. I had one of the best BLTs I've tasted (other than the ones I make at home😊). My husband says they have the best egg salad he has tasted anywhere at... More

It's an ok place for breakfast but nothing to rave about. When we visited Florida in December it was hard to find a really good place for breakfast.

Breakfast is a zoo at Papa's because this is a local favorite and there aren't many tables. If you like truck stops, you'll like Papa's. The omelets are filled with a velveeta knock-off and the vegetables arent sautéed first so they are raw and crunchy. The coffee is bitter.
