First timer meeting with an old friend. Enjoyed the simple style and hearty eats. Sat outside in the sun sipping great tea. Impressed with homestyle soup.

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?
