Open 6 am to 8 pm, this eatery has breakfast all day except for the specials. The combined lunch and dinner menu has a Greek flair and American favorites. Need to personalize your order . . . simply ask the waitress. This cafe seeks to lure in local customers and "Wow" new ones.

I guess you could call it a Greek coffee shop, but it is so much more than that. Set at the eastern end of East Hampton town, first thing on your right as you enter the parking lot. My wife always orders the junior Greek Salad, hold the anchovies; she is allergic to all creatures of the sea. I'm more... More

Restaurants like this are hard to find now in the Hamptons. Very reasonably priced, clean, fast service, extensive menu ranging from Greek specialties, New York deli fare, omelets, to a large selection of daily specials, and all entrees come with soup or salad. Newly renovated bathrooms. The owners take pride in serving their customers. I'm a fan!

Offering good food at an over priced fee - traditional food as well as some greek dishes , only with HAMPTONS pricing . Not at all a cheap place to eat ......If money isn 't an issue , enjoy your meal - it is good

This is a good breakfast or lunch stand by. Nothing fancy and I would not recommend their iced coffee (watered down old brew). Service is slow, but a good staple and local spot.

Been going here for years. The staff is always friendly. The food is always fresh and quickly served. There is usually a line for breakfast and lunch but it moves fast. I always tell people in front of me not to wait and sometimes they leave so the wait isn't so long.

John Papa's is a cute little diner! The prices are a little higher than your typical diner, but I wouldn't say it's overpriced. It is popular with just about everyone. The servers are accommodating, although quick which can come across as brisk. The food is so good for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I don't think this place can go wrong.... More
