The breakfast was quite good but the doughnuts are better than anywhere else. Scrambled eggs, over easy, even poached are all good - just like Mom's. Bagels are okay. The piece d' resistance is those marvelous crunchy, delectable doughnuts. Have two and skip the toast..

Friendly staff, creative diner fare (e.g. veggie wraps and homemade pot pies!), and literally the best donuts in the state! Dottie's has been around for years, and their reputation is stellar, so be prepared to wait on the weekends. Delicious food, including many creative twists...More

A bad waitress can really ruin eating out. Our waitress bawked at our request for separate checks. Meal was fine. At meal's end, she once again showed her stuff by shortchanging me $2. Maybe she was anticipating her tip!

We had a really good breakfast! It was our first time visiting Dottie's and we weren't disappointed. Friendly waitress, food came out fast and was yummy. It was very busy with no empty seats.
