We were walking along the square in Portsmouth and found Popovers. We were only in for a snack nd had their signature Popovers which were great. We were sad we could not come back the next day for breakfast.

I cannot be anywhere near Popovers in Portsmouth or Epping without going in and buying 6 mini popovers with maple butter on the side. BEST treat anywhere.

I visited Popovers with my niece for lunch during a visit to Portsmouth. I had a meatball sub which was very good. It was too cold to eat outside, but I think that might be fun next time.

My first popover was delicious!!! We also had the ham and Brie crossiant and banana panini. Everything was good in a great relaxed setting. Good start on our visit to Market Square.
