Toddle House Locations

I’m trying to put together a comprehensive list of locations of the Toddle House chain. Here’s a start- if anyone has any more locations, photos, questions or comments, please leave a comment! At one point, they had over 260 locations. Figure in openings and closings during the time period the chain was active and you’re looking at a lotta toddle.

  3. I have a newspaper pic of my father at work at a Toddle House in the early 1940′s. Problem is, my parents lived in Nashville, TN and Charlotte, NC late ’30′s and early 40′s, so I don’t know which Toddle House this pic was taken at. I’d be glad to share pic if you will tell me how to post it. Both my parents are gone now, so I can’t ask them.

  4. i work at the toddle house in 60s and 70s at one time it was five toddle house in richmond,va.i got some photos once was toddle house

    • toddle house in richmond,va. 2237 w.broad st.,2727 w.broad st.,1037 w. grace st.,4013 w. broad st.,6919 patterson ave.,4702 froset hill ave.

    • There was also one in Ewing Twp, NJ on Parkway Avenue near Lower Ferry Road. There is now a large diner on the site.

  5. southeast corner of 74th street and Broadway in Jackson Heights, Queens, New York. Across from the Subway stop and Triboro bus terminal at 74th St. & Roosevelt Ave., up to the 1960s. Went there as a little kid back in the 1950′s! Became a auto school office and still is today.. You can still see the roof of the original shop!

  6. Utica NY had one on upper Genesee Street and another one was in Trenton NJ, on Chamber’s Street I belive it was. And then there was on in New Haven, Conn but cannot remember the
    street it was on. The last I knew, all were still there in the late 60′s.

  7. There were 4 Toddle Houses total in Evanston Il. but not all at the same time. One was near Clark and Orington and was tottled on a truck up to the Hubbard Woods section of Winnetka to 966 Greenbay Rd (Linden) of which you have a picture. You listed one in the 1800 block of Sherman but that one was in the 1600 block on the east side of the street and was the only one not in a free standing building. You were correct about the one in the 900 block of Chicago Ave. The last one was at the northwest corner of Howard and Clyde. These last two looked like the one they moved to Winnetka but did not have the store room in the back like the Winnetka one.I had eaten in all 4 of them.

  8. THERE WERE 2 IN ALBANY NEW YORK IN THE LATE 60′S-EARLY 80′S I WORKED IN BOTH ONE WAS 892 CENTRAL AVE AND ONE WAS ON 1172 WESTERN AVE THE ONE ON CENTAL AVE WAS FIRST KNOWN AS TODDEL HOUSE WESTERN AVE WAS FIRST CALLED DOBBS HOUSE BOTH LATER CHANGED THE NAME TO STEAK AND EGG KITCHEN CLOSED UP IN EARLY 80′S

  9. The Toddle house at Three Chopt rd and Patterson was originally a Crown Central service station . It went to being the Toddle House about 1970. The building’s last tenant was a Dry Cleaner . The Toddle House at Ryland and Grace , ( worked there once ) is now torn down about 1979. The Safeway company needed room for it’s Produce department . Now they’re all gone .

  10. Do the two you listed in Albany NY still exist? I am hoping to visit them next month if they do; researching my parents courtship days.

  11. There were two in CT back in the 50s and 60s that I know of. One was on Farmington Avenue in Hartford CT and the other on New Britain Avenue in Elmwood (West Hartford). My mother used to take me to the Hartford location for burgers when I was a kid and I just loved the burgers!! Wish they were still there! The one in Hartford looked like the first pic you have on here.

  12. I believe there was one in the bexley area in columbus, ohio. It was mentioned in Bob Greene’s book Be True to Your School. Does any body know where it was?

  13. According to the February 4, 1938 San Antonio Express newspaper, the two Toddle House locations in San Antonio were at 2621 Main Avenue and 2303 Broadway.

  14. My parents worked at Toddle Houses during the 1940s. Some of the stores that they worked at included: Winston-Salem, NC, 878 W. Fourth St.; Worchester, MA, 784 S. Main St.; Springfield, MA, 273 State St.; Jackson Heights, NY, 78-18, 37th St.; Hartford, CT, 108 Farmington Ave., and Hartford CT, 907 Farmington Ave.

    • My mother used to bring me to the one in Hartford in the 50′s…I wonder if I would think the burgers are as good now as I thought they were when I was kid.

  15. Youngstown Ohio had two Toddle House locations. I do not have pictures but they were located on Wick Avenue on the north side of town and on Market Street on the south side.

  16. Does anyone have a picture of the Toddle House in Grosse Pointe Park, MI? I lived there in the sixties and I remember an old one and then they built a newer version. Great home fries!!

  17. I remember in the 50′s early 60′s there was one at about 1260 Chapel St, SE corner of Dwight St in New Haven CT, now a parking lot. There also was a White Castle, I believe, at about 236 Crown S, SE corner of College St. in New Haven if anyone cares.

  18. The Toddle House in Winston Salem, NA was located at 878 West Fourth Street. It is now Mozelle’s Fresh Southern Bistro. You can see it on googlemaps. I don’t recall one at 814 West Fourth…

  19. Enjoyed the Toddle House site. I have no picture but also one was located at 5834 E. Washington Street, Indianapolis, IN 46219 (Irvington). I ate their as late as the spring of 1975. It is now a ‘La Escollera Mexican Restaurant’. Gracias and adios amigo.

  20. It was a great place to go…sitting at the counter…we had cheeseburgers and I had a coke, my mom drank coffee. I always felt very grown up there. It was just so different. Miss it.

  21. There was A Toddle House in Jenkintown Pa(right outside of Philly which went along with the 3 Philly locations mentioned ,,,So what about the Hash browns,,I remember them being the BEST !! Was it just the Philly locations or did all the Toddle House locations have awesome potatoes..David in Philly

  22. I worked at one in Elizabeth, NJ during summer break from college.
    It was in the early 80′s and located on Broad Street, not far from the Newark border.

    During those few months, I learned cooking skiils that I’ve used all of my life.

    Thanks Toddle House!

    • The Elizabeth Toddle House was located between what is now 433 and 455 N. Broad St. It stood in what is now a Wendy’s drive-up exit onto N. Broad St.

  23. It would be wonderful to post Toddle House Recipes as well. No one seems to have the originals posted online, especially their Pies.

  24. we need a toddle house in Gonzales la . restrauants over crowded at la 30 and I 10
    wait for seats at waffle house. plenty room for location in this area ted

  25. Pingback: Toddle House | Restaurant-ing through history

  26. According to the book “And You Know You Should Be Glad, by Bob Greene, there was a Toddle House in his hometown of Bexley, Ohio, a suburb of Columbus, Ohio.

  27. There was a Toddle House directly across the street from the Post Office in Little Rock, Arkansas back in the 1940s.
    This location was on 5th street between Broadway and the State Capitol building.

    You have one listed being on Broadway but to my knowledge it was the first Minute Man restaurant ever and never called a Toddle House. It had the first microwave I ever saw…in the 1950s.

    I don’t know what is on the original Toddle House location, but the Minute Man location became. a Regions Bank building.

    The Toddle House across from the Post Office was very popular and one of my mother’s favorite places for coffee and pie in the 1940s.
