We needed a place to meet up with our college-aged (and post) kids for lunch. Stumbled into wonderful covered porch, tasty coffee, and great food. We never felt rushed (a good thing about the self- service atmosphere.) Highly recommend. Only downside is access to deck for those with mobility issues. Lots of steps.

we had it delivered for a business meeting, but the spinach salad and the curry chicken salad combo was AMAZING. I could not stop myself from eating the entire thing. Definitely ordering from there again.

It's a shopping thing for me, but I usually grab a salad, sandwich or treat to enjoy too because it's all so tempting. Fabulous selection of food, cookbooks, kitchen and other gift-y things in a very Durham and very pleasing warehouse atmosphere.

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!
