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!

This is my 3rd time and I'm just not happy. The first Time was for dinner and it was delicious. We sat at a table that was small and rickety and all four of us had our plates hanging off the edge. The meal itself was actually rather tasty and the menu was somewhat varied. The next time we came... More

This is the best German Bakery in the States. Hands down the baked goods are worth the wait on the weekends. I don't have any favorites, because it's like picking a favorite child. You simply can't. At lunch... the Wiener Schnitzel is really well done. They have the frying technique down to a science. I've travel all over Germany and... More

We've gone to Guglhulf bakery dozens of times, mostly on weekends. We tend to order the same things (chocolate Croissant, ham pretzel, elephant ear, pretzel bread, druit danish), and all are fresh, delicious, etc. Their brunch is good too, but we usually just visit the bakery and carry out. We've had dinner multiple times as a family as well as... More

Large, interesting grilled sandwiches (along with some standards, like a Reuben). Good selection of coffees and beverages. I would definitely go back and try other things, including the pastries next time.

Nice visit for lunch. Both indoor and outdoor seating. We chose the large outdoor area and enjoyed both meaty and veggie sandwiches with well-built soups and salads - I especially enjoyed the cucumber salad. Order at the counter and serve your own coffee, find a table and your server will find you. We'd return.

If parking were not so difficult, I'd go here more often. Excellent food. I especially like the cucumber salad, their frittatas and desserts. Sandwiches quite good as well. I've also been for dinners and they are consistently good.
