This is a gracious family-style restaurant, strategically located near many of the local hotels. Four of us had breakfast there and it was excellent. The staff is exceedingly cheerful and responsive. We had egg dishes and all were carefully prepared.

I've been going to Pop's for years. Their breakfast (available all day) is terrific. Love the spinach and feta omelet in particular. But don't just go for the breakfast. The meals and sandwiches are good as well. Love that they deliver locally, because it's usually really crowded. Just be warned: It will take them a while to get your food... More

This was a great breakfast, nothing fancy (which is what we were looking for). Everything we ordered (eggs, pancakes, sausage and potatoes) were hot and delicious. Staff was friendly and attentive and my coffee cup was always full. I would definitely make this my breakfast place in Milford.

Almost a fun place to eat. It is a great diner. Comfortable seating, good pricing, you get your money's worth of good tasting food and a good quantity. Friendly staff. See a lot of locals. If you come to Milford to visit, a definite stop for food. Ample free parking.

If you're anywhere in Milord or environs, this is a MUST eat place for the epitome of "Family Fare." Pop's is packed almost ALL the time with everyone from blue-tints like me with children and grandchildren in tow to young families, and singles and dating couples. Fairly energetic atmosphere, but not noisy or shrill. Everyone behaves... The many times we... More

We always have good standard diner fare. A wide variety of omelettes, breakfast items like pamcakes as well as a full lunch offering of soups, salads etc. great for families and has a diner feel. only thing is its not open late 24/7. Be prepared to wait 15 minutes at high peak hours.
