Doo-Dah Diner changes hours

The Doo-Dah Diner at 206 E. Kellogg  may possibly have been misnamed, says owner Timirie Shibley.

The restaurant, which has developed a steady word-of-mouth following since it opened three months ago, isn’t really all that diner-ish, customers have noted. The dishes, which include biscuits and gravy, meatloaf and chicken fried steak, all are fresh-made from scratch by Shibley’s husband, longtime restaurant fixture Patrick Shibley. The food might be a bit more cafe than diner, she says with a laugh, but c’est la vie.

Now, the restaurant is changing its hours because of a demand from customers. Previously, the restaurant’s only day off was Saturdays, but weekend breakfast seekers have been disappointed by that and asked the Shibleys to add Saturday service.

Starting this week, Doo-Dah diner’s new hours are 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. It’ll now be closed on Mondays.

The Shibleys just introduced a new breakfast special that’s a monster of a meal and includes half-servings of three of its most popular dishes — the crispy corn beef hash, the “Timmy’s Benny,” and the banana bread French toast. It’s “a meal and a half” at $12.99, Timirie said.
