My husband thoroughly enjoyed the fried chicken and waffle special and my Greek salad was surprisingly good. The dressing for the salad was especially delicious.

Very interesting menu, with lots of daily specials. Place is small and no reservations. Food combinations were eclectic. Nice selection of Gluten Free meals. With road construction parking can be difficult but not that bad.

Had supper meal was good but food was much more spicey than expected. Service was very good, reasonably priced. I had fried chicken. For us we'll pass but for most should be a treat.

Parking is a challenge. There is no lot for the restaurant. Depending on what time I day we go for dinner, we often have found a spot out front, or may park on a side street. The restaurant is worth it, so we would even park... More

The menu at Hot Suppa is all made from scratch from quality ingredients; local goods are used whenever possible. Our renowned breakfast and lunch are served seven days a week, so you can get that corned beef hash fix whenever you’re jonesing. Dinner is available five nights a week, featuring our favorite dishes, like fried chicken & a waffle, falafel salad, and Maine oysters on the half shell. We offer a full bar service if you care to relax into the evening with a Porch Swing cocktail, or recover in the morning with a spicy Bloody Mary or cold draft beer.
