Durham - Brunch


Brunch is the best part of the day...especially at noon on Sunday!

  • Guglhupf - Don't worry, you'll get the name down after a few trips.  Amazing European style cafe and bakery - share an omlette with a friend, and get a pastry all for yourself.  There is a lovely patio, and the cafe does get quiet crowded by 11a.  Free wi-fi and convenient plugs.  Not a bad way to get yourself out of the house on a Saturday morning.  Oh, and don't forget to stop by the little side bakery and get a loaf of fresh bread and a linzer cookie for a snack!
  • Fosters - Good home-cooking breakfast with southern biscuits.
  • Watts - Their brunch on Saturday and Sunday is just as amazing as their dinners.  Make sure you grab a friend to share the churros - little spanish donuts, with dark chocolate sauce.
  • Daisy Cakes - When you visit Durham's Farmers Market, you'll notice a quaint little 50s style trailer (aka...the vintage Airstream Sweet Mobile) at the corner of Foster and Geer St.  These are the most amazing Pop'tArts you'll ever had.  The first day I had one it was very cold outside, and it was like I but the warmth of my home in my tummy!  They also serve coffee (Counter Culture), cupcakes, and scones.  All are scrumptious!
  • Vin Rouge's on Ninth St - Little French Bistro that has an amazing Sunday Brunch, 10:30a - 2:00p.  Sounds and looks fancy - but it is soooo good and not pretentious.  Keep this one for the slightly special occasion.
  • Elmo's on Ninth Street - Nice, family style diner - easy on the wallet.
  • Whole Foods on Broad St - Need something quick and warm?  Whole Foods has a hot breakfast bar - fast and good.  Also, the coffee is only a $1 with your own to-go cup.
