Popovers on the Square is a casual, pleasant café and bakery located in the heart of Portsmouth’s historic and charming Market Square.

We embrace the European philosophy of fresh and seasonal food, outstanding coffees and wines, exceptional pastries and desserts, and, of course, a relaxing and convivial ambiance from which to enjoy your entire experience. Established in 2006, the name Popovers was chosen to reflect and promote that golden brown, light, and buttery New England staple. We hope Popovers on the Square will become your café, your bakery, and, most importantly, your home-away-from-home when you are looking to relax, eat well, and enjoy family or meet old and new friends. Please visit us for breakfast, lunch, or dinner seven days a week, and know that we appreciate and value your patronage.
