Daddypops in Hatboro: Unlocking all Types of Nostalgia

232 North York Road

Much like the rest of America, Montgomery County loves a good diner. Perhaps it is the timeless quality. The past few decades have been one of transformative growth for Montco. A diner is kind of like a time machine. Just sit in the booth and you can recall breakfast with your parents as a child. Afterschool milkshakes in high school. The perfect late-night spot to finish a night out.
 
Daddypops in Hatboro unlocks all types of nostalgia and is also one of the best diners in Montgomery County. It is also probably one of the oldest diners in the Montco. The physical building, classic stainless steel on the outside, was built in 1953 in New Jersey. New Jersey was quite busy from 1930 to 1950 building the now-retro stainless steel diners.
 
Ken Smith, and his now deceased wife, Beth, opened Daddypops in 1982.
 
Daddypops is open 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. seven days a week. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that breakfast is very popular. Daddypops earns 4.4 stars from over 700 Google reviews.

Popular menu choices include:

Breakfast. Of course a diner like Daddypops has great options for breakfast like eggs, omelettes, flapjacks, and brioche French toast

Daddypops special: Choice of juice, two eggs, toast and jelly, coffee, and choice of home fries, beans or grits.

Daddypops own menu selections are dropped eggs on toast, eggs bull’s eye, sausage, gravy and biscuit, and creamed chipped beef.

In 2008, Daddypops got its star turn. The Montgomery County diner was featured on the Food Network’s Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. During the episdoe, Guy Fieri found discovered Daddypops’ customers love potatoes just as much as he does. The show highlighted Daddypops home fries. The diner goes through about 200 pounds of potatoes a day.

 

“It’s a neighborhood institution filled with regulars who know exactly what they want,” said Fieri.

 

Also, scrapple, a regional breakfast side, was explained and touted as a favorite at Daddypops whether customers choose to get it grilled or deep fried.

 

Counter Culture on PBS39 is set at the counter at Daddypops. Grover Silcox hosts the show and talks to a variety of people including artists, authors, comedians, and historians.

 

But for customers visiting Daddypops, the cameras don’t have to be rolling for them to experience a Back to the Future moment. That’s just what the best diners do.
