Wonderful informal place to eat. Busy all the time so you want to make sure to plan for that. Really Hard to park

This is a good place to visit and eat a delicious chocolate croissant, fruit tart or a chocolate cookie in a warm environment at a reasonable price. For those interested in sandwiches or small plates it offers some good options also.

Too good to pass!!! Everything from salads to sandwiches to desserts. We stopped in for lunch after a Duke lacrosse camp before we headed back out of town. We will be back when we are in town again. In fact, if we are passing by even close we will come out of our way to come here. The coffee was... More

We were looking for the restaurant with a GPS after dark and drove past it- hint, look for the steel steer artwork out front. Parking lot is narrow but there are parking lots on both sides of the restaurant and parking on the street behind the restaurant. They have walk through gates if you park there. They have a very...

Nice place. Had brunch there three times. Consistent high quality bakery type casual restaurant. Brunch items are varied and delicious. You wait in line, place order, then find a table and they bring your food. Large tables if you have a big group are available. The coffee is good.

My grandson, Lucian and I have been having breakfast together whenever I am in Durham visiting. He picks the spot & this time it was Guglhupf's!!! The eggs Benedict were scrumptious, coffee excellent, service prompt n cheerful (and on an early Sunday morning too!). Can't wait to come back n try again.

We had dinner last night at Guglhupf's dining room, our first time though we had been wanting to try it for ages. My husband had wiener schnitzel, which is made with pork cutlet here, not veal. I had the chicken liver small plate and asked them to up size it to an entree, which they agreeably did. It came with... More

Guglhupf Cafe is very different from many other German bakeries I have visited. The pastries are incredibly flaky and delicious. These treats are worth every calorie and carb!
