Self service and very busy, on a Sunday morning. Had eggs Benedict which for a change served on bread instead of a muffin. Excellent coffee, I wonder what brand and where they bought it. Would go again for breakfast.

The tea here is excellent. I have had the rose congou, jasmine flower and wu wei and each have been unique, with body and roundness of flavor. My sister in law And I each had the beet sandwich. I loved it, but could eat beets every day in large quantities. The Coconut pie was up there with one of the... More

Although the coffee is great and the food I have had was quite tasty, it all comes down to whether or not you are willing to encounter a VERY unpleasant staff member. One of the staff members has been working the last two times I have gone. She is so rude and grumpy that I may never go back. No... More

Heard a lot about Guglhupf and chose it for my wife's "re-retirement" dinner. Made a Saturday night reservation and were quickly seated when we arrived - on the 2nd floor balcony with interesting view of huge chandelier and 1st. floor diners. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu and wine list. She helped us select a dry riesling (after... More

We had tea at this cafe. The atmosphere is very nice. You can sit outside, inside there are seats downstairs and upstairs. The pastry looks amazing! Didn't taste it though because it was very early in the morning. Tea was a lot and they have some nice flavors. The woman behind the bar wasn't very kind. She also spoke very... More

I have hard time rating this place. I enjoy the service at the bakery, they were nice and helpful. The bread and pastries were good. The hostess at the restaurant was upset that we were there to eat at 4 pm. The barista at the coffee bar looked tired and not friendly either. The food was tasty and menu has... More

My husband and I visited this cafe over the weekend and I have mixed feelings. After ordering, we noticed the 93 health rating (I would have expected better and we would not have stayed had this been seen prior to ordering). My husband had a cranberry/apricot muffin which he said was good and I had the egg special (spinach,caramelized onions,... More

Went to their bakery on advice of a family member and discovered the Cafe. Both are an extraordinary find in Durham - who would have thought!! The owner is German and has been featured on the Food Network. If you know and love german pastry and breads - or if you want to get as close to the real thing... More

I had breakfast there and the coffee and pastries were excellent, a taste of Germany in Durham. The atmosphere was also great and we stayed there quite a while chatting. The place has space for outdoor seating as well but when we went there a mini market was going on outside. They are also opened for lunch/brunch and they seem... More
