My order was wrong twice. Hot drinks came after our food and took ages. I actually gave up on my coffee. Not enough staff to handle the number of customers is the obvious issue here. Could easily be fixed!

This café was a short walk through the Saturday market from the Marriott where we were staying. At first we ate inside because why not? It was cheery, clean, and had light good music, color, and a widely varied menu, much with a Mexi flair,...More

Decided to try this restaurant for Saturday brunch. I ordered Thai fried chicken and Graham cracker crusted French toast. The French toast was delicious...the remainder of my meal and experience was average and at times below average. The Thai fried chicken was rock hard, so...More

Been twice and there is always a line to get in for breakfast/brunch but totally worth it! Don't really know what to say about Cockadoodle - expect plentiful, heavy breakfast meals that are worth the calories. Great for a Sunday morning with friends.

The place does not look like it from the outside (or the inside, for that matter), but the food is amazing. We both had the "The Cockle" - one with pancakes and bacon, the other with toast and chicken-apple sausage. Both dishes were excellent. Not...More
