Stumbled upon this place after a work meeting and I must say, it's a little gem! The staff are great, very friendly and not overbearing. Food is super tasty (good portions) the cakes are first class. I will be returning!

Went to Durham for a few days and nipped into Treats whilst in the town centre on spec - never heard of it or read any reviews - it seemed popular with a steady flow of customers entering and leaving up the narrow stairs so we went for lunch. Very small and tighly packed but the food was very good... More

Excellent place, a bit small but the food is really good. Excellent portions you won't leave hungry and good value. The staff is super friendly and welcoming. This is one of the best coffee shops I have ever been to!!

I visited here in September whilst in Durham on business. I thought the staff were really lovely and I had the best omelette I have ever tasted. Stuck on a train on the way back to London I read the tripadvisor reviews and was very surprised to find anything negative - I thought they would have glowing reports. Glad to... More

We visited on a Sunday afternoon based on tripadvisor recommendations. For lunch, there are several delicious home-made pies (Corned beef pie, ham and leek pie, warm quiches) as well as extensive made-to-order choices of baguettes. The order came promptly. Service was friendly and efficient. The atmosphere was 'cosy tearoom' but a bit more vibrant than most tearooms. A diverse mix... More

I live in Durham and occasionally pop into town for lunch. I had a lovely, good value lunch in treats followed by a massive piece of cake and a coffee. I really enjoy eating in treats as it's such good value for money, not a chain and does great lunches and coffees

As a family we go here quite often but lately found the prices high for what you get. Lovely staff though! Never received my free coffee top up!

well its fair to say I love cafes and restaurants as much as its fair to say the young girl whom served here didn't have any manners what's so ever! I ordered and paid for my meals with a colleague a local journalist for a local paper whom apologised to me for suggesting this venue for lunch. Now I know... More

The food is simple, well made fare. The cakes are scrumptious and the portions are very generous. It can be very busy and cramped, so try to avoid the peak times!
