A cute dinner. Known for good breakfast. They are usually busy during the breakfast hrs. They make their own donuts so make sure you get some before you leave.

We decided to try Dottie's for breakfast. The place was very busy; that being said we both felt our omelets could have been cooked just a little bit more. The potatoes were very tasty and the service was great. We would definitely go back for another try.

Our Airbnb host recommended we try Dottie'a for breakfast as she said it was the best in town. we would have to agree. The service was great, food was perfect and plentiful and the overall setting was traditional diner style with stools or booths. Visit early since the lines became very long after 9am.

On a roadtrip this summer I decided to pick a place to stop for lunch from the Road Food Guide Book which is what brought me to Dottie's. The ambiance and cleanliness of Dottie's were great, and their staff was super friendly. According to everything I've read about this place, the donuts are supposed to be some of the best... More

Dotties should have stayed across the street I. its original domain. After a lengthy buildout in its current new location everything remains the same. For starters the food is usually good, service is marginal and the place always has a wait. However you would think that with a new location it would lend itself to expanding its footprint? apparently the... More

After the new place opened, it wasn't the same but never gave it much thought until I'd gotten a couple of muffins to go, brought them home and they tasted so stale and were so dry, we threw them out. Called Dottie's to let them know that perhaps that was a bad batch of muffins, and they couldn't care less.... More

First visit to the area to see a friend and she recommended Dottie's. Had a wonderful brunch! Service was great - my coffee cup was never empty and its flavor was smooth and silky, no need for cream OR sugar. The quiche was amazing - the crust was flaky and the egg filling was not at all rubbery like so... More

Dottie's has been around for years and one can only say breakfast are good home cooking but the signature delight are their fresh cinnamon cake donuts. When I am passing through town to visit I always stop off and grab a dozen donuts to take as a welcomed gift. They are literally to die for, usually warm and mouth watering;... More

After hearing a lot of people mention Dottie's in Woodbury I arranged to meet some friends there for breakfast. Well, everything I heard was true! It's a great place. They have a nice menu with lots of good choices for breakfast and the coffee was very good too, and came in large mugs. The atmosphere is friendly and the decor... More
