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