Smaller Cafe with a very relaxed atmosphere. Food is great home cooked meals and service excellent. No outdoor seating available and I'm not sure if reservations are accepted. Cafe is quite busy so come early for supper on weekends. Menu has a very good selection of dishes to choose from.

I had Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon. EXCELLENT! Hubby had bacon eggs - you can't go wrong with that! Diner type atmosphere, dated, but very clean - spotless! Waitress was quick to come to our table - the place was very busy - one cook in the kitchen and the food came out very quickly. The kitchen knows how to... More

Have visited The Durham Cafe many times. Great service..busy but never too busy. The food is very good..from all day breakfasts to fish and chips. Daily specials and reasonable prices.

We have been there many times for breakfast. Outstanding. But we tried lunch and disappointed. Long wait for food. Cole slaw not to our liking. Very bitter. Fries seemed crisp at first but limp soon. Breakfast great but would not go back for any other meal.

I have been to the Durham Café close to 100 times. I have taken dozens of friends and they all are now regulars. The food is second no other restaurant in Lindsay and probably Peterborough and Oshawa too. Yes sometimes it's crowded but what does that tell you? It tells you people really LIKE it there and they will give... More

This is a good bet for home-cooking style family meals. Our group of 9 had breakfast at the Durham, located 4 block off the main street. Coffee was instantaneous and tasty, meal portions were large well cooked and arrived hot for all of our large group.

We went to the Durham Cafe last night with friends. Honestly, I didn't expect too much--especially when we were told there was a large party--30+ ahead of us. They agreed to accomodate us and we were not in a hurry so we decided to go for it and I'm so glad we did. Even with a party of 30, service... More

What more to say? The specials are good and you certainly won't leave hungry. Not a fancy place so not for a "special" meal but the food is good. Excellent for breakfast and lunch.
