There is always a line at Doodle's for good reason! The seating is more family style, you may end up sitting with "strangers" but really, are there such things when there is good food around?

Had their version of "egg in a hole", and could not eat it fast enough. Get there early though. They close at 2pm, and they get busy quickly.

Great coffee, friendly atmosphere, there's something for everyone. Don't forget to order the beignet, it's a tradition. Driving from Michigan to Florida we stop in Lexington just to eat breakfast at Doodles, it's quite a treat. You need GPS to find it but it's worth...More

We always check TripAdvisor reviews when visiting anywhere. And TripAdvisor did not disappoint for this quaint little place. The food was wonderful-especially the beignets! It looks to be an old gas station. You stand in line at the front door/ counter, order your food and...More
