Found a hidden cafe with a wonderful selection of food on the menu. The coffee was amazing and can't wait to go back for lunch!

Really nice quality food, friendly service and a nice oasis from the busier town centre. Have been recommending it to everyone. I look forward to going back again.

We called here for lunch last Saturday whilst waiting to check in at the nearby Premier Inn. We had a sharing platter for 2 people and it was gorgeous. Everything was fresh and tasty and we really enjoyed it.

I recently visited this lovely place and had the grilled halloumi sandwich. I think this is the best sandwich I have ever tasted. It was fantastic; looking forward to trying the rest of the menu.

Rory's special ciabatta style bread (not ciabatta though, but a french recipe apparently) is the best bread you will eat anywhere, I mean that most sincerely folks! If you are looking for a REAL bread, that's made by an artisan baker you shouldnt look any further than Claypath Deli. It is OUTSTANDING. Make sure you get it fresh though (usually... More

I come here on a regular basis with my friends to catch up. It's so cosy and they do the best hot chocolate I have ever had for a price much lower than all the major chains! I've only eaten at the Deli once but it was amazing and all locally produced too. If you're in Durham City it is... More

We were highly recommended this place as a great eatery in Durham. Firstly it's a fair walk from the centre of Durham (especially with a pram) but we were told it was worth the walk. We got there and there wasn't any ideal tables that could accommodate said pram - however the staff went out of their way to help... More

Got to admit i was rushing around all day trying to get jobs done as i wasn't in durham long and I decided to pop into this place for a quick coffee, one of the most relaxing and tranquil coffees I've been in.

After a recommendation we decided to do the short walk up the hill. Delightful place with a great selection of paninis, sandwiches and cakes.
