The Place for Breakfast in Lindsay!

A very busy breakfast place that has an extensive breakfast menu: eggs, sausage, peameal bacon, pancakes, french toast. There is usually a line up at peak times.

Whenever I'm in Lindsay, I eat here. The service is incredible (thanks Sherri!) and the food is out of this world. Don't pass it up!

Our favorite place to eat! Whether we choose off the menu or taste a weekly special, it never disappoints! We often gather there with family and friends for the delicious food and great atmosphere.

The Durham has recently changed hands and we were interested to see if the high standards set by the previous owner would be maintained. Well, we were not disappointed, in fact, the service, atmosphere and quality of food is as good as before, the presentation of the food might actually have gotten better. Certainly the liver and onions, my particular... More

A local gem full of friendly locals and attentive wait staff. Very good breakfast (omelettes and waffles) that left us feeling full for many hours. Highly recommended.

My hubby and I just enjoyed a lovely lunch at the Durham! Such a pleasant atmosphere and the food was beyond great! Time was taken with the 'presentation' and cooked to perfection! Although very busy, the servers took time to make customers feel welcome and special. A delightful place to eat!

Have ate at the Durham many times having lived less than a block away. The cafe recently sold and today was my first time in since the change of ownership. I understand that staff bought the cafe. I found a table and waited ten minutes before being given menus or coffee. This was not a usual custom of the Durham.... More
