I went here after a suggestion of my friends who love it for the food. I definitely agree that the food is good and I liked that they had a Greek menu though it wasn't as good as the real Greek food. I also think that the look of the place should be improved to be more attractive. What I... More

It was a Saturday lunchtime very crowded all seats were occupied. Waitress said the wait won't be long. Very friendly. The place warm and inviting. Locals greasing each other with hugs and smiles. The server came over in a flash and we were seated. Clean place, simple menu I had to try the feta cheese pizza on homemade pita bread.... 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.

Wonderful staff. Great comfort menu. Authentic Greek options. This evening there were many interesting special soups and main dishes, but I ordered Moussaka off the regular menu for $18. I was surprised by a generous Greek salad and also delicious large pieces of hot garlic bread, both included! The perfectly prepared Moussaka followed. Barely had room to finish. Have eaten... More

John Papas has been a staple in East Hampton probably before I moved out here in 1986. I have NEVER tasted another souvlaki like theirs and their tzaziiki sauce has never been replicated anywhere else!! Portions are great. Lots of people meet for breakfast. Great homey place with great food! Packed most times but worth the wait.

For those familiar with the Queens' diner experience, welcome to John Papa's of East Hampton, as you'll not be disappointed. As with the Queens diners, and John Papa's, the ambiance is not the reason to visit nor is the view, as many look out to a parking lot; the same is true for John Papa's, the East Hampton Public Parking...

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 place!

This is an old fashioned Greek style diner serving wonderful breakfast and a wide variety of food items suitable for lunch and dinner. Nice atmosphere. It is practically hidden behind Main Street (Route 27) in the Town parking lot near the exit onto Main Street (entrance to parking lot is on Newtown Lane). Very courteous service.

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.
