Just Pop In★ ★

Small Plates

This popcorn-centric restaurant at Just Pop In’s headquarters and production facility on the Monon Trail is bursting at the seams with good vibes, just like twin sisters Mandy Selke and Carly Swift, who founded the popcorn business in 2003. The first thing you see is a Ferris wheel mural with working blinking lights, and a gorgeous wooden bar with velvet teal chairs as cozy as they are stunning. The menu makes quirky use of Just Pop In’s famous favorites, with cheddar popcorn on the tomato soup, and macaroni and cheese with optional spicy curry popcorn. There are charcuterie boards, olive plates, and hearty sandwiches like Pearl’s Pot Roast, with marinated vegetables, smoked Gouda, and arugula. The star of the show is the lox service, with cold-smoked Scottish salmon from Smoking Goose served with a bagel and cream cheese, veggies, and dill pickle popcorn. Lunch and dinner Tues.–Sun. V
