This is a one of a kind restaurant. Delicious, inspired dishes in a setting perfectly fit for any occasion. Very close to Chapel Hill. The bakery is superb, one of the best in the Triangle. Love it!

A perfect choice for Brunch on Sunday or for a casual lunch on a week day or for a romantic dinner. The food is amazing with a combination of German-French-American cuisine. Don't forget to stop by the bakery to take some delicious European pastries and...More

This is my second review about Guglhupf. My first review was only about the drinks I had. But now I went back for more: dinner. We went on a Friday evening with 6 people and the place was crowded. Luckily we had a table upstairs,...More
