Wonderfully charming and hip German restaurant attached to a wonderful bakery serving only the finest fresh made food and baked goods. Authentic Bavarian pastries and coffee for a snack or a full dinner. Great German beer, too

It looks like it's right next to the parking lot, but once inside ti's like a different world - pleasant to look at, comfortable for leisurely dining, really nice. Not only is the restaurant fare very good, but they also have an excellent bakery with great... More

If you google the restaurant you will see the great menu, the fantastic choices,what you can,t know unless you go is how tasty and perfectly prepared the food is. From the small touches of flowers and mustards on the Kaseplatte and the Wurstplatte to the sides with the chicken or the house specialty the schnitzel. I switched the potatoes for... More

A really cool lunch spot with delicious pastries for dessert. The lunch meals are always tasty, but not as good as other places in Durham, but the bakery and the cool outdoor vibe makes this place worth the visit!

We were originally told about the bakery, which did not disappoint. Delicious breads and sweets! Preorder if there is something specific that you want to make sure they have. I ordered my partner's birthday chocolate tart to insure they'd have one. Went to the cafe twice in one month because of how good it is! Frittata was great, as were... More

Love this place, I have been here a few times and have never been a disappointment. Dishes a very representative of the German Cuisine. Hearty and comfort food style, at least the dishes that I have had. Bread are great as they have they have a bakery next to it.

To be fair, I have only been to Guglhupf on the weekends for the brunch. But I keep going back and bringing friends and family with me. Of course, the baked goods are fantastic (this is a bakery, after all). I sometimes get a basket of bread and something little because the bread is just that good. But the brunch... More

Had frittata with fresh fruit. It was good, but not wonderful. Menu fairly limited. Nice outside dining area but rainy the day we were there. Biggest drawback was barely warm coffee. Did give us a clean cup to try another urn but it was same temperature. They then suggested we have iced tea. Complimentary cookie came on top of upside... More

So we came to Guglhupf! Brunch or breakfast over at Guglhupf is an experience, you stand in line and you get your stuff, get a table and sit, the outdoors is marvelous. The cheese, the croissant and everything is delicious. Only the parking is a problem!!! Everything else is an experience.
