Locally-sourced ingredients are used in the dishes here. Good variety. What a fun place for breakfast or brunch or lunch! Friendly staff, too. All this adds up to feeling that you are eating in a nice neighborhood hangout. Always pleased to see the adaptive re-use of an old building = in this case, a gas station. Plus outdoor seating in...

My wife and I had breakfast at Doodle's last weekend and it was fantastic. The ingredients are super fresh and the service is great. We had mimosas with our breakfast on the outside patio and it was memorable. We will definitely return!

This was one of our first breakfasts in Lexington. You have to get here early or there will be a line. Order immediately before being seated so study the menu before you get in line.

Not much seating, but delicious brunch! The beignets are quite yummy. We sat outside with the heaters on when it was a little chilly and it was very nice.

Good breakfast food. Doodle's has the BEST BREAKFAST POTATOES in town. Eggs and bacon were delicious.

Had breakfast with a small group recently and really enjoyed it. You can order regular breakfasts or something a little different, I had 'Eggs in a Hole' which are served inside a biscuit with a cutout. It came with amazing cheese grits. I ordered regular coffee, which is delicious, but they also offer french press for an even more robust... More

Doodles is a great place for fresh local breakfast. The menu has traditional items but with a twist. It is slightly more expensive than chain places, but fresh eggs, local jellies, and creative dishes is worth the small premium. It has a neighborhood feel in a converted service station. There is indoor seating as well as outdoor seating.
