I had the most amazing sandwich at this restaurant; the Shrimp BLT is by far the best sandwich I've ever had. And the Corn & Tomato salad was equally delightful. I wish Parker and Otis would add their next location close to Minneapolis.

Who knew I would love the peanut butter, banana and bacon Panini! We stopped in for lunch after a morning of sightseeing. While there was an impressive menu of sandwiches, I had to try the #28! What a great sandwich, my only negative comment would be that it was served with cole slaw. The two flavors were very different and... More

I was in Durham with group from work, and we went into Parker and Otis for lunch. Our group (16) was able to get our orders in and service was prompt with great sandwiches. I had the shrimp BLT, and I loved it. Would recommend it to others in the area!

We like to go here after school and get a candy treat, or I may get a cup of coffee. We browse the books and other items. They also serve sandwiches and have a great salad selection. You need to go at least once if you are in Downtown Durham.

Try the curry chicken salad or the shrimp BLT. I eat here often. Highly recommend, the coffee is some of the best in Durham and is decently priced

Truly a wonderful lunch visit. There were three of us and each of us loved our sandwiches/salads. Ingredients were fresh and spiced just right. The pimento cheese was fantastic and there were lots of different choices on types of potato salad. I was also great fun to look around the gift shop. Can't wait to return!

Happened upon this cute foodie shop which has a little bit of everything to tempt you. But the best discovery was their homemade pimento cheese/avocado/tomato toasted sandwich with side of equally great cole slaw. I felt like I had died and gone to heaven it was that good. Sat outside on the deck & rested after shopping at next door... More

This is a locally owned sandwich and breakfast cafe located inside a gift shop. There is a great covered deck to eat outside too. The food is always excellent, fresh and generous. The staff is friendly and free coffee refills. A favorite place.

This a really cute counter service spot that also sells candy, home goods, wine, etc. The sandwiches are great! It is a fun place to shop and eat. Not cheap, but worth it!
