We go often and just stop for bread or pastries. So tasty and good. We've also dined in the restaurant as well. Fresh, local ingredients. Parking is a little brutal on weekends but during the week is usually not too bad.

I love the ambience of the place: relaxing (unless it is the weekend), well decorated, upbeat, and cosy. Get a table in the outdoor area on a sunny day. The bread is very good there. However, the food is average and over priced.

Most of the restaurants in Durham with outdoor seating border a busy road. Guglhupf's outdoor dining area is tucked away behind the building. There's a parking lot, but you don't feel like you're sitting out in traffic. I've only been for breakfast/brunch and to pick up bakery items to go. Great basic breakfasts and coffee but don't miss the baked... More

Don't blink or you'll think you're in Europe... if you can find a parking spot! Great pretzel bread. Friendly service.

Food at Guglhopf is terrific. They have a very small bar but it serves some really great drinks. The schnitzel is to die for and they always have farm-to-table fresh sa;lads and veggies-- love the food and the atmosphere

Guglhupf is an excellent bakery and delightful lunch spot, but many people do not know about how exquisite their dinner is. The chef locally sources meat and produce, and is ridiculously talented when it comes to seafood. You should consider the market fish along with the other entree choices. Additionally, the cheese plate is the best in Durham, always complemented... More

Food is descent, staff--not so friendly and/or helpful. It's a tiny little place and they have a reputation for making great bread, and pastries. I've tried a few things which were good, but not great like you may find elsewhere in Durham.

A quality bakery, but so much more! If you are tired of the Starbucks formula, here's a unique venue for meeting up with friends. Everything is freshly baked or made on the premises. In good weather there is pleasant patio seating. Owners obviously take pride in their products. One wishes that there was a bit more parking, but this is... More

We made a last minute decision to try something new and this place was a Big Winner. The eccletic atmosphere and delicious food made a special day all the more special. Be prepared for a crowd but make sure you wait -it's worth the experience. There is outside dinning as well as two story indoor dinning. Enjoy the first come... More
