COSHOCTON – If you are looking for a yummy and cheep breakfast then Cockadoodledoo is the place for you.

The breakfast only restaurant was opened Dec. 29, 2014, by Karen Casey and Jim Eubank and is located at 1330 S. Sixth St. inside of Alpha Bits & Bytes.

“I always wanted to own my own restaurant, but never really had the means to do it,” Casey said. “We know Adrian Padilla (the owner of Alpha’s) really well and asked him about the idea of doing a breakfast only restaurant here since he doesn’t open until 11 a.m. or noon. He thought it was a fantastic idea so I made a menu and started shopping.”

Padilla gave them the okay to use his facility on Dec. 7, 2014 and by Dec. 27, 2014 Casey and Eubank’s were ready for a friends and family event.

“We’ve been busier than I thought we would be,” Casey said. “I also wasn’t sure how we’d do our first weekend, but we had several people come in.”

Cockadoodledoo is open from 5 to 11 a.m. Monday through Friday, 2 to 11 a.m. Saturday and 2 to 6 a.m. Sunday. They do dine in and carryout daily and also deliver on Saturday.

“Our biggest seller is a traditional breakfast of eggs, meat, hash browns and toast,” Casey said.

They also feature breakfast empanadas.

“They are like fry pies, but you can pick what you want in them,” Casey said. “I like the bacon, egg and cheese ones.”

Another unique item is the breakfast quesadilla.

“A lot of restaurants around here have breakfast burritos but I couldn’t find one with a quesadilla,” Casey said.

The menu items are all $6 and under and a sample menu can be found on Cockadoodledoo’s Facebook page.

“One thing I think I would like to add are some healthier, lower calorie items,” Casey said.

For now Casey, who works full time as a nurse, and Eubank’s plan to stick with serving just breakfast and enjoying the opportunity to spend more time together.

“I never really got to see him because he worked second shift at Clow,” Casey said. “I always said I wished he’d quit and he finally listen to me and I got to open a restaurant like I always wanted to. My first job out of high school was working at McDonald’s and I always liked the chance working at restaurants gave you to work with people and meet new people.”
