To be quick, The Dodo is a classic! It’s one that everyone turns to in a time of need – kind of like your best friend! The Dodo is always reliable, always great, always heartwarming, and always satisfying. Whether you’re going on a fancy date or having late night dessert with your friends, the Dodo works for any occasion. It’s classy and upscale, yet fairly priced and low-key.
For appetizers, the baked cream cheese is super unique and popular – something I’ve never tried before I became a regular here. If you want to witness a beauty, make sure to order the Ahi Medallion. The mix of savory sauce and sweet pineapple make for a fresh and intricate dish.
When it comes to salad one of the best options is the spinach salad with lemon shrimp!
It’s a spring mix tossed with cranberries, gorgonzola cheese, candied walnuts, apples, and grapes- covered with a tangy orange vinaigrette. Delicious, filling, you absolutely need to try this!
Another favorite sandwich, though they are all very tasty, is the Garden Sandwich with turkey. With sandwiches, you also get a side. I’m always willing to try their soups, simply because I have never been disappointed (no surprise there). One of my favorites, and pictured here, is their Curry Squash Soup – creamy and savory. Other delicious plates are the pulled pork quesadilla and chilled asian chicken pasta.
DESSERT, a.k.a the most important part of this post and life in general. Just as the name, The Dodo, entails the bird’s rarity, the dessert menu is just as uncommon and unique. The Dodo pastry chef handcrafts each dessert everyday to make them fresh as can be; and trust me, you can taste the difference. I’d dare say that these guys create some of my top favorite desserts ever. I promise that they’re all distinctly amazing; you cannot go wrong with whatever dessert you decide to crave that day. Try one or try them all and I guarantee you’ll still want more. I’ve still yet to try them all, but that’s just more incentive to keep going back! We’ve posted some here, not all, only due to lack of more space. A few of our favorites include the Tollhouse Pie, Caramel Coconut Coffee Cake, Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Pie, Key Lime Pie, Chocolate Mousse, and The Banana Cream (ask for a side of caramel sauce).
