Love the idea of ordering at the window and seating yourself. This gives Doodle’s a different flare than most places. My favorite item was the beignets....WOW! I never had them before trying them here, they are a must have!

Our first visit won't be our last. I'm looking forward to going back. It was hard to decide what to order, everything looked good and everything we ordered was great.

First timer meeting with an old friend. Enjoyed the simple style and hearty eats. Sat outside in the sun sipping great tea. Impressed with homestyle soup.

If you didn't hear about this place beforehand, you could easily walk right past it. But, then you would see the line outside the door waiting to get in and order!! Treat yourself to a great breakfast experience and --- get in line!!
