I was visiting my daughter in Durham and went to treats for lunch. What a treat! We had paninis with salad and soft drinks. Freshly made and huge portion. We went back today for breakfast, what can I say, the English breakfast, toast and tea only £4.95 was excellent value for money, again freshly made to order. Portion huge and... More

We had the corned beef pie and it was delicious, it came served with salad, crisps and the most delicious coleslaw. The prices were... More

Having slept so well at Croxdale we didn't leave until 0915, so by 1145 we were certainly ready for our breakfast at Treats. Fantastic. I was hot and thirsty so had an excellent milk shake first. My wife &... More

I went for lunch with a big group (12 people) and they catered for us fabulously despite the small size of the cafe. Food was yummy and reasonably priced, and there was a fantastic variety of cakes on offer. Cake portions are huge so I asked for a smaller slice, and was only charged for half of the normal price...

Busy little cafe in the heart of Durham on the way up to the catherdral. Wow, what a selection of savouries and sweets at a very decent price. You should see the size of some of the cakes...wow! Definitely worth another visit!
