A diner's oversized booths and oversized pies have long been a beacon of hope for teens dumped after prom and frowny clowns looking for new novelty-sized props. Take refuge in the crispy crust of an old-fashioned eatery with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of omelettes, waffles, sandwiches, and more at Pappy's Coffee Shop. This Groupon is valid for redemption at Pappy's Coffee Shop locations in Bakersfield and Shafter. Both locations are open seven days a week from 5:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Pappy's Coffee Shop features a menu brimming with hearty ways to start the day or end the night. Fuel up with an egg-laden dish such as the four-egg Monterey omelette, packed with Ortega chilies, ham, and jack cheese and served with your choice of hash browns, ranch potatoes, grits, pancakes, or fried okra, as well as your choice of toast, biscuits and gravy, or tortillas ($9.65). A fresh-baked blueberry muffin ($1.35) is also available for fluffy accompaniment. For a bigger bevy of blueberries, guests can order a tri-tower of Pappy’s seven-grain blueberry pancakes ($7.95). Come lunchtime, impress your future father-in-law by engulfing the half-pound chili-bean hot dog without using your hands or mouth, or stick to a classic such as the B.L.T. ($9.25 with avocado, $8.75 without avocado). By dessert, diners can messily envelop the foamy, 32 oz. root-beer float containing two scoops of milky ice cream.
Pappy’s Coffee Shop has been locally owned and operated since 1999. Rise with the crow of the lion and mosey over to Pappy’s warm, welcoming shop for a meal to power you through a day of drilling for California’s natural deposits of Legos.
Pappy's Coffee Shop
Since 1999, when Pete A. Cisneros Sr. opened Pappy's Coffee Shop, the rustic, homestyle eatery has attracted locals with generous portions of classic American diner food. From 5 a.m. to 2 p.m. every day, chefs sizzle eggs alongside chicken-fried steak, jumbo cuts of ham, or fried bologna, and pile plates with seven-grain pancakes and waffles. Their 8-ounce burgers can arrive with Freedom fries or fried okra, and charming, 1-quart mason jars of cold soft drinks. The walls boast American and oil-rig-inspired memorabilia, creating an ambiance more down-home and eclectic than the vintage furniture-juggling contest at the state fair.
