Baked Alaska and the Ice Cream Sandwich are the ones to get. Everything else did look really good and I go plan to visit when I go back but until next time Baked Alaska and the Ice Cream Sandwich are the ones to get.

We have been there several times and our party raved about the desserts, but I have to say I think the Brunch was my all time favorite.

When I lived in Portland, Papa Haydn's was a regular place to go. It was delightful to come back after many years and still find the food and the service to be excellent! While they no longer have my favorite salmon salad, I ordered a...More

With the positive reputation Papa's seems to be known for, I couldn't have been much more disappointed especially when there are SO many better places for dessert nearby. The service was OK but maybe a bit "off." The Macaroon was tasty but wouldn't have won...More

A visit to Portland isn't complete without dinner or dessert (or both) at Papa Haydn. We found the Dinner Club menu to be incredibly affordable and yes, the waiter confirmed the portions were the same as if ordered ala carte. Bravo, Papa Haydn!

Have been going here for 30 years - it’s as good now as it was when it first opened. Love, love, love everything on the menu - I miss their Pasta Carbonara, but the menu is still awesome.

I came here tonight for dessert. In a sad mood. I ordered the passion dessert. I couldn’t have made a better choice. I’ve never tried something so rich but light at the same time. So sweet but so bitter, so fruity but also so chocolatey....More

We enjoy our annual dinner at Papa Haydn’s immensely. It’s quite a drive for us so we go just once a year but it is wonderful. The food is great but the desserts are OUT OF THIS WORLD!

If you can, I strongly suggest reservations. Parking is on the street and can be an issue depending on the day. Go early, stroll the neighbourhood and then enjoy your meal.
