“Bretzel me some DELICIOUSNESS!!!!”
Reviewed December 5, 2009

OK. So I've been in Durham for a couple weeks and have finally had my eyes opened and my taste buds sent into euphoria at the first nibble of a Guglhupf Bretzel. The rolls, bretzels, breads, fruit torte and chocolate danish have all been delectable. This was only my first visit but certainly won't be my last.
I'll be stocking up on more stuff tomorrow AM and it seems as though the restaurant right next to the bakery is very busy. Locals know all about this place and frequent it with delight.
I look forward to my next stop and next bite of a delicious bretzel roll...and I think I'll try a Berliner tomorrow!

“We found our favorite restaurant in Durham!”
Reviewed November 23, 2009

We met friends at the Guglhupf for dinner over the weekend and it is a real find. It gets it's name from the bakery that is at the front of the establishment. The dramatic entrance to the restaurant is on the side, down a few broad steps to the patio and fountain. Very attractive and architecturally pleasing dining on two levels with patio dining available.
The service was attentive without being obtrusive. Nice wine list and a broad assortment of menu items. My short ribs were outstanding, quite lean, melt-in-your-mouth and far and away the best I've ever had. My partner felt the same way about her salmon--and she eats a lot of salmon. We both enjoyed the apple crostada served with cinnamon flavored ice cream.
It was a delightful evening.
