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!

If the weather's nice, choose outside, a lovely courtyard. But inside is nice too... A bit noisy. Order at the counter, they give you a number to put on the table. Excellent eggs Benedict , also a vegetarian one with artichoke hearts, wonderful. For dinner, they have table service, and take reservations.

I go to Guglhupf at least one time a week, and I have it almost since it opened. The servers know my name! A simple salad is perfectly dressed, with the freshest ingredients; the omelets are never overdone -- a pet peeve of mine -- and the menu is reasonably priced. I only hestitate to go when I know it... More

Tight quarters inside so we really prefer to visit during warmer weather when we can enjoy the patio. One visit for brunch was so crowded that we had to wait around for someone to vacate a table after we'd aleady ordered food. For dinner we had a group of 8 and got a table outside. Everyone enjoyed their dishes. Prices... More

Very good food, leaning toward the German style. There's a fantastic bakery attached to the restaurant that has great breads and pastries. At lunch you stand in line to give your order then find yourself a seat either inside or in the charming terrace area under umbrellas , both areas are packed on the weekends and parking can be iffy....

We were up early with the kids so we headed off to try this breakfast spot that is always packed later in the morning. The weather was perfect for the patio. I wish there was table ordering... but other than that everything was great. The omelet I ordered was fantastic and the fruit that came with it was great and... More

After a Beerfest in Durham, we were ready for some quality German fare. We showed up at 4:30 and the hostess was very rude. Didn't say hello when we walked in the door, and pretty much told us to leave because the kitchen wasn't set up for dinner. The atmosphere was very nice and the menu looked interesting, but we...

What a lovely space for coffee or lunch! Ample outdoor seating under a partially covered canopy - great to enjoy the lovely Durham weather. The menu is broad, with some great standouts including their Roasted Beets sandwich and the always popular wurstplatte & käseplatte options which make for great sharing. During their busiest times, it can be a little noisy... More
