I have been to this place several times and it was wonderful, except this last time. The food took an unusual long time to arrive and it was cold. My wife’s chicken tasted like old supermarket roasted chicken. My burger was not worth the price....More

Enjoyed a very good Croque Monsieur with a salad. Nice surroundings and decent service. There is a full bar and tree dining areas. Good choice if you are in the area.

My wife and I had lunch at Papa Haydn yesterday. Salads were large and delicious! Deserts were heaven on a spoon!! The Blackberry Cheesecake was the best cheesecake ever! Great place for a meal or just desert.

While driving down 23rd St., thinking about lunch, there was a parking spot right in front of Papa Haydn. Seems like it was meant to be. Great neighborhood with lots of street activity on a cooler August day. Very interesting menu and huge dessert selection....More

Our hotel concierge recommended a jaunt down 23rd Ave to look at the shops and grab a bite to eat at Papa Haydn. We both had the shrimp salad (yum) and shared the boccone dolce (layered meringues with whipped cream and blackberries...YUM)! We were told...More

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.
