As the name implies, everything is made from scratch at this seasonal bakery. I’ve had breakfast here twice. My son and daughter in law, who live in Durham go often. Both times I got the shirked eggs with buttery toasted baguette...so good. They’re pastries are...More

My favorite little shop in Durham. The breakfast plates are the bomb, especially the perfect biscuits. As big as they are, my friend and I had to grab a slice of pie and coffee. I had to come back, so I took breakfast solo at...More
