I grew up in Germany, I speak the language, and I have enjoyed German cuisine for a lifetime. This place has been on my list for a while and today we tried it for brunch. The cafe and patio are nice enough. Navigating the parking...More

Took a friend here for her birthday. You order and find seating, and the food is brought to you. Bakery is rated as (one of) the best in Durham. One surprise I experienced was when I asked for horseradish to go with my beef sandwich,...More

I enjoy Guglhupf Cafe and this was my second visit. It's reasonably priced and has a great variety of bakery items. The bread selection especially looked good. When the weather is mild I cannot think of a better place to start the day.

Great savory breakfast options with impeccable espresso creations. Take your out-of-town guests here for instant cred. Super cool architecture.

This is my #1 brunch spot in Durham. When I lived here I came by almost every Sunday to study and get brunch. They have great coffee, smoked salmon, and muesli. The best part is that when you are done you can walk into the...More

We went on a weekend and I was worried about a wait given it's reputation but there were plenty of available tables. The line to order was pretty short and the food was delivered fairly quickly. I love hot sauce and they have Tobasco and...More

Love the surroundings, but the food is uninspiring. Doubly so if you are eating a vegetarian or gluten free diet. Only confirmed meat eaters should consider going.
