Worst Cake Ever. My husband bought me a special birthday cake today and while it was beautiful, we both agreed it was not even edible. The cake was SO dry. It tasted like it was a week old. Beautiful, but tasted so terrible. We couldn't even finish a piece. Bummer. Worst birthday cake of all time.

We have been twice there and both times have been an excellent option. The place is nice and bohemian, the cocktail menu is large, I recommend the gin & tonic, it is amazing! The first time we went we ordered a cheese board, that was delicious, the Vienne Schnitzel that was really amazing and well done just like in the... More

Guglhupf is one of my favorite brunch spots. When it's warm enough, the outside patio, which has a great atmosphere and the European feel and diversity of people makes it. Not to mention the food which is always good, including the finest bakery items around. Whether you choose from the standard breakfast fare to salads and sandwiches, you can't go... More

The food here is very good. Inside is noisy, though, so I like this restaurant especially in the warmer months, when you can sit outside in their patio.

Ok, bare with me, normally I try to see the good in most situations. However Valentines night after driving from The Angus Barn to Durham to get dessert we were promptly turned away from Guglhupf. No so apparent was the full-course menu scripted for all patrons. We didn't need dinner we wanted what this restaurant is lauded for...good desserts. So... More

I have been to Guglhupf twice now, and both times I have been very happy. It is quite popular, so wait times can vary, but the food is worth the wait. On my first visit, I had the potato leek tart, which was delicious. On my last visit I had the chicken club. The sandwich was tasty but awkward to... More

I probably drive up the road once a week, and that's an act of self-discipline, because it could be daily. Always fresh, always delicious, and they don't overload anything with sugar. I just log on, order, and find it waiting. That's not the only way to order, but I'm just that lazy.

Brunch definitely has a lot of choices, not too many German dishes, but still this is a very good place with so many interesting things on the menu. Sandwiches and egg dishes were very good. Coffee was great. Despite big crowd there was place for everybody and you can hear each other well.

Having read about this restaurant for some time, my wife and I had the opportunity to visit for the first time today. She ordered the schnitzel small plate with salad, and I ordered the bratwurst with potato salad. Both dishes were very good (great kraut and pretzel bun for the wurst), but flavor was unremarkable overall. Observing those eating around... More
