Guglhupf instantly established itself as one of my favorite Durham spots. I've gone multiple times for Sunday brunch. The food and coffee are great, and the atmosphere is comfortable and energetic without being frantic. I really enjoy the rotating menu items that incorporate local and seasonal vegetables and meats. Even as I try to work my way through their normal... More

The menu is creative and inspired by German specialities. We loved the hasenpfeffer pot pie and the wild boar with spaetzle but everything was good. The atmosphere is good and the restaurant is quiet.

A very nice German-themed restaurant with surprisingly very good food. We've had dinner there a few times and it's always been very good. Made room for desserts on one occasion and they were just excellent. Prices are fair, the interior and exterior decors are quite nice and eclectic, you can eat inside or out, all of which make for a... More

Guglhupf is one of my favorite places in Durham. It gets my vote for best patisserie in the Bull City. Great coffee, tasty breads and pastries, some open air seating and interesting people. It reminds me of the coffee houses I used to go to in San Francisco 40 years ago. A good place to go to enjoy a good... More

Love the casual outdoor seating, off the street & quiet. Full service for dinner hour. Sometimes longish waits (maybe 10 minutes at worst) in line to order bkfst & lunch.

This is an unusual place! Nice outdoor eating area in good weather. Not as much room inside. We have had several nice breakfast meetings there, with 4-6 people. The food is unusual, freshly prepared, and delicious. Nice place for unique experience!

If you love European pastries, this is your place. I recently ordered a variety of tarts – chocolate, French apple, and linzen. They were absolutely amazing. I’ve ordered tarts from various restaurants and they’ve missed the mark. Usually the crust was too tasteless or too dry. Sometimes a chocolate filling was too bitter and limited in flavor. That was not... More

I frequent this hidden establishment for 8 years now, whenever driving from western NC to the coast or to the triangle . Usually with my German parents or my nuclear family . I have never had a bad meal. On week ends at brunch crunch time, food delivery can be taxing one's patience. But the food is excellent value ,... More

It's hard to find German food to begin with, let alone great delivery! My husband and I were in town and saw the reviews so we gave it a try. If you like German food, you will love this place! Our waiter (sorry forgot his name) was awesome and helped us decipher the extensive beer selection and gave us spot... More

Simply enchanting! Whether you dine inside or on the patio you are in for a treat. Waterfalls, art and delicious fragrances surround you. We enjoyed eggs Benedict, eggs Arnold, a rueben sandwich and local root beer. Then on our way out stopped at the bakery for artisan sourdough bread, pastry, local peanut butter and local root beer!
