My daughter had the chocolate dessert called a rosebud. Despite how good it looked, it didn’t taste that great. My husband liked his cheesecake. But I had the winning dessert, which was going to just be a peanut butter bar until the cashier did the upsell and convinced me to make it even better by adding ice cream, hot fudge, whipped cream, sprinkles, and a cherry. It was delicious on its own, but making it a sundae made it way better.

This is my go-to place AFTER a meal. Short walk from key restaurants in the area with outdoor seating and great cheesecake.

Great place to grab breakfast, lunch,or snack. Large choice on menu. Pastries are a must treat. Salads,soup, sandwich, and what they are famous for (popovers! ) Eat inside or outside, both are excellent.There is also beer, wine, and cocktails.

When you just want a little something while you stroll. Good selection of nibbles. Clam chowder and peanut butter bar! I do think if the name is Popovers, they should come out hot.

Popovers must be a New England treat because that's the only place I've eaten them. For breakfast, the Popover stuffed with scrambled eggs and American cheese is hard to beat!
