Seating is limited, perhaps 50 +\-. The staff was helpful and cheerful. Several of the patrons appeared to be... read 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.

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!!
