John Pappas is a great place to have some solid food. Their omelets are as far as I am concerned the best in East Hampton, their salads are fresh and delicious and we finally actually made it there for dinner and we were very happy....More

I've been to Papa's many times over the years and it's always been delicious. My standard order is the blueberry pancakes: they're always sublime! Thank you, Papa's - - East Hampton wouldn't be the same without you.

We eat there regularly, and have for years. It never disappoints! The staff is friendly, the food is excellent, the prices are realistic, the location is ideal. No problems at all, maybe except that it's reputation attracts tons of people, especially during the summer. Great...More
