Dottie's@phillips is in its new location for a couple of years now, candidly they should have never moved. They have a larger space with what appears to be less tables, terrible table service. However the only saving grace is the food is good, but way to expensive for a small town.

Love Dotties! They moved from their old digs to a cute new location and the food is still great. Breakfast is their specialty so that's what we had. Pancakes, omelettes, etc. all delish. Totally enjoyed my meal. As you head out the door, don't forget to buy a dozen donuts to go - if they even have any left! 😉

This a great place if your looking for a donut and coffee. I have been here several times and every time I leave disappointed. Food is ok with a very limited menu. If you have more then four in your party , this is not the place for you. We always end up with a chair and the end of... More

Dottie's diner has relocated across the street to a larger venue. They have kept up the standards and the food is always delicious. You may opt to sit down to eat or catch coffee and homemade donuts to go -- either choice is good! Best donuts in the area!

One could consume double portions of their always fresh and delicious fare. Plenty of cheerful service in a spotless atmosphere. Wonderful family value. It's the place to eat in Woodbury, Connecticut.

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.
