Homestyle, homemade, just a great old fashioned cafe. Biscuits made from scratch, hand made hamburger patties, awesome grave for those delicious biscuits. My youngest declared her hamburger one of the best ever, and I agree. NOTE - cash only!

In July of 2015 I sat on a bench outside of Poppa Joe’s while my wife shopped. One of the many observations was that a lot of elderly men teetered into Poppa Joe’s but nobody came back out. Old guys know where the good restaurants...More

Think greasy spoon! But the food was wonderful and the atmosphere was from 100 years ago. We were staying at a local B&B and needed to hit the road early. The B&B breakfast wasn't to be served until 8am. So we tried Poppa Joe's, the...More

I just looked at their website and it looks like they're open every morning at 6AM. They are open for breakfast and lunch only.
