Overall, this is a lovely restaurant! They have indoor and outdoor seating and a great menu. I live in the Washington, DC, area so my first visit was with a few colleagues for a group dinner after work.

Guglhupf is a restaurant we often visit on trips to Durham. On our most recent visit, the restaurant was less crowded, likely because the students are gone for the summer. The four of us had the fried oyster and bacon salad, the chicken breast, the sausage plate, the salmon special, and the salmon appetizer as a dinner. All were very... More

The bakery at Guglhupf is about as authentic as it gets with German bretzels, fresh breads, and the afternoon Kaffee und Kuchen options. I forgot how good the pretzels were until I went back this Saturday and they taste just like the ones I grew up with in Southern Germany. The breads are made fresh daily and they also sell... More

We weren't entirely sure what everything on the menu meant because it is a german restaurant, but our waitress was good at explaining and didn't make us feel stupid for not knowing. The meals we got were amazing. There was so much flavor. The portions were fair and the prices were great for how fancy the place was. It was... More

A great place to enjoy healthy, local, and creative dishes. Many wonderful selections of cakes, breads, pastries in the bakery next door(also owned by Guglhupf). I reccomend going early, as they tend to run out of goodies at the bakery by noon.

We visit this bakery frequently, both for take out and eating there. It's very busy during peak times - weekend breakfast and brunch and evenings, but you can make reservations for evenings and always get takeout fairly quickly. This place is the closest thing to a European bakery you find in the Durham/Chapel Hill area. The braids are awesome, and... More

We had lunch here with a friend who uses a wheelchair/electric scooter. We arrived around 11:30 because we knew parking would be an issue. The upper (entrance side) parking lot was almost full at 11:30, but he got a workable space. It was one of the first lovely spring days, so we ate outside. He didn’t attempt to navigate the... More

Even though this restaurant wasn't what I expected, it still warrants the Very Good rating. You order your food at the counter, tell them where you are going to sit (inside, outside or upstairs) and then they bring the food to you. The bratwurst with sauerkraut on pretzel roll was superb. Sauerkraut was not too sour (I don't think it... More
