Great spot for breakfast

We came here based on the reviews and weren't disappointed. The Milan Scramble was yummy and I liked the thinly sliced crispy breakfast potatoes. My husband had the special pulled pork Benedict and he loved it. It was a little too spicy for me. The only minor down side was the cornbread. It... read more

We had just arrived in Emeryville on the Coast Starlight Amtrak train and needed a breakfast. We travel often on the CSL, usually eating in the Diner. They never change the menu so we Used Yelp to find a place with walking distance from the station. We arrived just before the rush, got our table ordered, and had a very... More

Very good. Anything from the "Doyle St Favorite" part of the breakfast menu is delicious. Good cup of coffee too. And very friendly staff that makes sure you're always taken care of.

What a find! Doyle Street Cafe is located in a great neighborhood, within walking distance from the Courtyard on Shellmound Street. We were greeted as soon as we arrived and sat by the windows. There are windows all across the front of the cafe so that's easy to do. The cafe is light and airy - a very pleasant atmosphere.... More

I pulled up and immediately felt welcome with the open doors. I was greeted as soon as I walked in the door. Ordered a beer and a BLTA. Came out in less than 3 minutes and included a smile on the waitress face. Oh, and the food is incredible!

We had an early afternoon appointment in the area and we decided to eat an early lunch/ late breakfast. We tried the Doyle Street cafe. Parking is limited, but we found a close spot. Seating is limited, perhaps 50 +\-. The staff was helpful and cheerful. Several of the patrons appeared to be regulars. A modest menu offers a variety,... More

We were fortunate enough to be invited to visit Pixar Studios in Emeryville, and we found the Doyle Street Cafe online as a place to grab lunch beforehand. What a nice find! The cafe is on an interesting looking and quiet side street. The lunch vibe is busy and local (with a lot of Pixar diners), the menu is nicely... More

A nice cafe for lunch for locals- good service, and the food is served as expected and promptly. The potions are fine and the quality is nice. No deep fat fryer so you are not tempted to order less healthy options.
