We stopped for lunch at this Cafe for the first time. The food was pretty good, too bad we could not stay for the entertainment for the evening.

Great service, great food (homemade). We loved it. I hear that there is live entertainment. We didn't see that at the time of our visit but what a great spot. Durham is a great town to visit.

We visited the Garafraxa Café on a non-musical Friday evening and had an enjoyable evening. While they don't serve "hot meals" since they lack a full kitchen they do serve soup for a cold winter night, warm sandwiches, and tasty local craft beers. We chatted...More
