I have been to Guglehupf cafe on many occasions, as a solo diner, as a couple and with friends. The staff aren't always friendly and it does take a while to get food sometimes, but the desserts are totally worth it!! The sandwiches and salads are also pretty amazing. Not much German in the cafe, bar the pastries and a... More

Guglhupf is more-or-less an institution in Durham. It’s always a treat to hear people mangle the restaurant’s name! The food has a German/Deli/Bakery thing going on. I usually have lunch, but dinners are also nice and it tends to be quieter in the evening. If the weather’s nice – try to sit outside - it's a bit quieter. I’ve never... More

Service was awful. Order takers were rude. We got there 15 min before end of brunch. We were told they were no longer serving brunch. We insisted since we drove half hour tp get there. They tried to turn us away, even though they remain open for dinner with hardly any variation in menu but an increase in price. They... More

Ill start off by saying the food and deserts are absolutely to die for, the portions are decent, and the urban atmosphere is one of a kind!! It like stepping into an art exhibit! It is said to be a German Cafe, but only thing absolutely German about the place is the pastries and a few select items from off... More

This is a very unique cafe that has a wonderful outdoor seating. The selection of German beer and pastries is the only thing that I would say makes the place German, however. I've been to Germany, and the menu is more of a farm-to-table with European influences, instead of the German cuisine that the name suggests. The bakery is wonderful.... More

The adjacent bakery has wonderful European style baked goods...scones croissants, breads and pastries that supply the restaurant (and several other upscale restaurants in Durham). Great coffee, fast service and lovely spots to sit on the patio outside with the sound of fountain to ease you into your day.

Let me just start off by saying the food and pastries at great! The atmosphere is so cool it would make Johnny Depp jealous. Then we drop down to the employees that interact with the customers they might as well have robots taking your order. I come here often and even though the people at the cash register change their...

I've been for dinner and for cappuccinos. The dinner was delicious and the service was good. I went to the bakery Midday and the lunch and beverages were pretty tasty. I would definitely return - it's a nice place to get some work done. Outlets at some of the seats.

Wonderful pastries and breads to take out and delicious sandwiches. My husband particularly loves breakfast here. They can get crowded so try not to come at a peak time or you will have a wait, especially on weekends.
