Attached to the cafe is a bakery. Go as early as possible b/c they sell out sometimes. Do keep in mind their bakery is small and limited but what they do make such as different breads, rolls, cookies, and danish are top-notch. Prices are reasonable. Parking can be an issue. Today when we went we noticed that they own the... More

I expected at the very least to have decent service, however upon arrival, and after I was seated, it took 10 minutes for somebody even come with water, and then it took another 5 to 10 for a waitress to come ask what I would like to order for a drink. At this point I was just irritated and ordered... More

After driving past this cafe/restaurant for years, we finally decided, at the urging of our daughter, to try it out for a brunch. So glad we did! My!, we have been missing out on a really great cafe for years! We all thoroughly enjoyed the dishes, from the absolutely scrumptious farmer's omelette (the caramelized onions in it are like "butta!)... More

One of my favorite spots in Durham for breakfast and dinner especially (lunch tends to be crowded and more noisy). Beautiful outdoor terrace with an unusual fountain and lots of seating. For breakfast and lunch, you stand in line and order at a counter - they give you a number and bring you your food when it's ready. At dinner... More

Try this place! In town for a family visit and made it a point to get to Guglhupf. Many choices for breakfast, some are pretty unique. The bakery items are phenomenal. I have purchased gift cards in the past for family members that live in Durham and even the online purchasing is flawless and professional. Don't miss a trip to... More

This restaurant used to be a favorite however our recent trip there was bad news. The oyster salad was poorly prepared - oysters were greasy and oily.All six were small. The greens were covered with a hot dressing and loaded with small fried onion pieces and bacon. My wife's link/potato tart was burned on the bottom. Latte coffee was cold.... More

Well it was a beautiful summer afternoon and my daughter was set on a schnitzel. Where do you go? Guglhupf of course. Order taken and everything seemed perfect. Then our order taker appeared. Only one order of schnitzel left. We wanted two. So I gallantly change my order to the smoked salmon - also usually a great choice. My daughter... More

Best selection of German beer in the area. Schnitzel is always great as are house made sausages. Cheese plate appetizer this time featured some wonderful cheeses plus homemade crackers. The service was super and the outdoor dining patio us among the best in Durham. Highly recommend...plus try the homemade ice cream sandwich with their homemade mint ice cream!!!!

First time at Guglhupf and I will definitely be back! Everything we ordered was delicious. I had the weiner schnitzel which is literally the best I've had, even including my experiences in Germany. We shared several appetizers, but I especially enjoyed the cheese plate. A little expensive for everyday dining, but completely worth it for a special occasion.

Thank Beth W
