The food is top notch and the staff (special shout out to Lori) are excellent! I've only been to Durham for breakfast, so I can not attest to the afternoon menu.

It has a typical menu for a breakfast/lunch venue including omelettes, sandwiches, waffles, pancakes, etc. We all ordered various versions of omelettes and were surprised to discover that while toast IS included, home...

I go to the Durham Cafe all the time for breakfast or lunch. The food is always good and the staff are so friendly. The Durham burger is amazing and the breads they serve are so fresh and delicious. I would definitely recommend.

My boyfriend and I took a break from our workday to head for lunch at the Durham Cafe (based on reviews we read here). The menu was diverse and there were also some specials.

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.
