Good Food, pleasant staff

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... read 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 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

We love this place! The service is AWESOME and the food is wonderful! We also love the ambience (we visited on a Sunday morning). We will definitely visit again.

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.

I had really had high hope, and wanted to make it my next favorite place to go to for breakfast because it's situated in a quaint and quite section of Emeryville. My wife and I were seated at a table next to the men's bathroom and changing room for staff. The restaurant wasn't busy, but it took a good while... More

My wife and I were waiting for the train to go to Tahoe. We had about 1.5 hours so we walked over to Doyle St. Cafe. They weren't open yet, but saw us out front and opened early. Now that was impressive! Super nice staff and owner, plus the breakfast was GREAT! Go there, you will not be disappointed!!
