I had the pleasure of going here twice last week. I had actually never been here before and there was one near the violin shop I was going to. So, after hearing about it, I decided it was time to finally try it. It didn’t take long to figure out why it’s so popular.

I split lunch with my friend because we wanted to make sure to have room for dessert! Half of their Reuben was more than enough. Papa Haydn has good food too.

The restaurant on the East side was opened in 1978 and was remodeled in 2007. They did a great job preserving the beauty of the building and added a heated patio and bar.
