We visited Poppycocks for desserts and a drink and it was a great choice. The place was very cute, the staff was very friendly, and the desserts were delicious. Overall a great experience.

Delicious food. Interesting art on the walls from local artists. The food keeps me coming back. They offer outstanding soup. There are always many enticing specials. The rolls with poppyseeds are delish.
