Awesome detour: Guglhupf cafe Durham NC

On the way to Williamsburg VA with my parents we stopped for lunch in Durham at this amazing cafe I googled bakery as I adore fresh bread.
It was a vibrant and hip cafe and the food was fresh and tasty. The decor was also contempory and fun Jasmine spotted some little frogs and said Wibbit!!

This is a guglhopf cake what the cafe is named after.

Fresh cakes and breads just like Europe I got a loaf of bread and jam for the road !

Mums French dip potato salad and roast beef and French bread

I got a leek and mushroom omellet to share with Jasmine

Jasmine gobbling up the nutella brownie again just had to get one of these to take away !


Love these lights

So if you are in Durham or driving past stop at chapell hill blvd for a coffee and brownie

I think I just may have to make another detour on my way home Friday !!!

What's your favorite foodie find on a detour ?

finally just want to thank Penny from Mimi's Kitchen a fellow NC blogger and blogging buddy gave me the Sunshine award thanks so so much, you are the ray of sunshine

  22. We are most proud of Guglhupf in our wonderful town. The "Gug" opened 11/98 as just the bakery and continues to evolve, now with delicious dinner service in the café. In one of your pix, Rebecca (, it appears that you accidentally caught one of the Dukes of Duke University and 20th century industry fame--Mary Duke Biddle Trent Semans--in her usual Guglhupf spot! She's a terrific gal and another asset, like Guglhupf, to Durham. Thanks for visiting our town and come again!
