365 Things to Do in Memphis #27: Stop By Cockadoo’s on the Way Home (Closed)

Posted by Holly Whitfield | January 27th 2012 1847 0

It’s late. You’ve been out drinking downtown, and you’ve got a craving for bacon and eggs. There’s nary a Waffle House in sight. But what there is, my friends, is Cockadoo’s, and they’re open all night on the weekends.

Cockadoo's, Memphis, Tenn.

Though Cockadoo’s normally serves coffee, breakfast and lunch from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m., they turn into an all-night diner on Saturday and Sundays.

They open at midnight and stay open until 3 p.m. the next day, serving Southern breakfasts that are greasy in a good way (try the Shag, a peanut butter and banana French toast sandwich…thing).

Cockadoo’s is on Second St. between Union and Peabody, which makes it a few blocks (at most) away from the majority of the bars downtown.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.
