Rob-a-Que, a popular barbeque restaurant, located at 4214 Bishop Lane on the corner of Bishop Lane and Newburg Road, has been remodeled and is now open as Poppy’s Café and Coffee. Owner Rob Bailey made the change after conducting a lot of research and finding out that there were not any quick service breakfast options in the area.
“Our location was not conducive for dinner,” says Bailey. “I also felt that a barbeque-only menu did not give enough options for our lunch crowd. After expanding our menu and hours, and changing our name, I think it’s clear what we are offering now.”
Poppy’s is a fast serve breakfast and lunch café with a fresh inviting interior. The hours are Monday through Friday 6:30am to 3:00pm, closed on Saturday and Sunday.
Poppy’s offers fresh ground coffee with a different roast each day, espresso, cappuccino, lattes, hot teas and hot chocolate. Breakfast options include Nord’s Donuts, bagels, English muffin egg meat and cheese sandwiches, breakfast burritos, and scotch eggs.
The lunch menu includes salads with toppings of ham and turkey, grilled chicken or smoked salmon. Daily soups are brisket chili, potato and ham, and a soup of the day that includes, roasted red pepper crab, broccoli cheese, vegetable beef, Italian sausage, chicken tortilla and others. Deli sandwiches made fresh daily include smoked ham, smoked turkey, corned beef, grilled chicken and roast beef with a variety of cheeses and toppings. Homemade chicken salad and ham salad are also available. Hot press sandwiches include cuban, reuben, turkey reuben, buffalo chicken, hot brown and Italian.
Rob-a-Que sandwiches still available on the menu are pulled pork, pulled chicken and brisket. Slaw and potato salad are still made in house. Poppy’s still offers the popular Rob-a-Que Q-packs which are complete carry-out BBQ meal packages that feed 5 people to 50 people.
Poppy’s also caters to the gluten-free crowd, offering gluten-free bread, bagels, corn muffins and wraps. All soups and meats, the potato salad and slaw are all gluten-free as well.
