A fun, whimsical name for a fun, whimsical place! I heard about Doodles from a friend a couple of months ago, so W and I went for an anniversary breakfast back in July and loved it! Doodles is relatively new to our area and serves breakfast and lunch. The kitchen is open to the dining area, so it's a little noisy, but fun and laid back. There's also a patio so you can eat outside if it's nice. The menu is great, with everything from a typical eggs, toast and bacon breakfast to 'shrimp and grits' to quesadillas to beignets to sandwhiches, soup and salad--many made with local ingredients. The folks at Doodles think outside the box. Instead of gravy, eggs and the 'shrimp and grits' are served with their housemade 'tomato gravy.' It's a yummy slow, simmered sauce of tomatoes, onions, green peppers and garlic-packed with flavor! There are free refills of coffee while you're there (always a plus in my book) and big pitchers of milk and half & half. If you go to Doodles, you have to order Beignets, these amazing fluffy, fried dough creations dipped in powdered sugar (apparently native to New Orleans, where we'll be heading in a year). They're made to order and come to your table all crispy and warm...don't get me started...

Last week, I went to Doodles with my friend Brittany. Yummy food and Brittany got to hold baby P for the first time, we were both teary-eyed. I should have taken more pics of our food, etc... but I forgot about blogging, it's still so new! Next time!
