Wunderbar!

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.

Very popular bakery/cafe' in Durham. We went there right after Duke graduation ceremonies at the baseball park....hope the long wait was representative of the graduation crowd and not a normal Sunday (45 minute wait for food). We got some items from the bakery while we waited for our food -- order at counter, get a number, they deliver to the... More

Lovely, busy smallish place with a lovely outdoor seating area. Excellent bakery products. Good light lunch dishes that you order at the counter and self carry to seating areas upstairs, outside and main floor. Very pleasant and something of a Durham institution with loyal fans. Reasonable prices.

Had high expectations and unfortunately was disappointed. Was here for lunch with friends around 12:30 on a weekday. Didn't have to wait in line but a few minutes to order. The counter-help was pleasant. Got our food in reasonable time, but sandwich was just average. I had a turkey, arugula and gorganzola panini that was missing the gorganzola and was... More

I am a bakery fanatic, and Guglhupf's exceeded my expectations. I couldn't believe the great variety of baked goods their website, and was pleasantly surprise that they had all of it and more when I visited there on a Saturday morning. The cafe is a bit confusing when you walk in because there is a host stand, but no host,... More

First the bad news. I'ts possible to stand in line outside for 20 minutes before you get to the cash register to order, even if you arrive at 11:45, I just did. I won't do that often, and the reason most folks do it is that they are with good friends and enjoy chatting. Next, you serve yourself soda, get... More

Fresh and yummy pastry assortment made with high quality ingredients travels well. Found the croissants light and flaky and the almond paste bright and delicious. Old fashioned bakery box makes for a nice gift.

The pastries at gugelhupf are fantastic! My personal favorite is the chocolate croissant though I have trouble sticking to just that and end up ordering something else as well. We've also ordered cakes from them before and had excellent results. Be aware that its easy to pass the location since it is at the back of the building. Look for... More
