Pretty garden with delicious cream puffs, but other items on the brunch menu paled in comparison. I had the Caesar salad which I don't recommend.

I was more than disappointed in eating here since I lived in Germany over 10 years. Lots of sandwiches, bakery goods, but only few German meals! The place was full and long lines, but it was lunch time. Ran out of ice tea and had to wait. Did not offer sweet tea as you must sweeten with what sweetener's that... More

This is the best little cafe in Durham to stop in and have lunch or brunch and even the dinners are great. The weekends are always crowded, but if you come on a weekday afternoon you easily find a spot to sit outside and enjoy the weather and the food. I'd go here more often if I worked in the... More

I have been frequenting Guglhupf for the past 11 years and it has not let me down. The food is spectacular, especially the schnitzel. If you are seeking German food in Durham, this is the place to visit. Their dark bread and linzer cookies are mouth watering. And during the spring, summer and fall, the outdoor patio is a perfect...

Ordered a Black Forest cake from here for a german gal's birthday. She was delighted when she tasted it and found it to be a true German Black Forest Torte -- not like the super sugary ones that you usually get her in the U.S.. And, it was decorated with a piece of marzipan on top -- what a delightful... More

I heard great things about this restaurant, and also read high reviews online - and I was NOT disappointed when I finally went to eat here! I've been here twice, so far - once for take-away lunch, and once with guests for breakfast. The food was fresh and delicious both times! When you go here, you line up inside, they... More

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. Since then, I've wanted to come back on my own to give it another try, but the opportunities are few and far... More

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
