Yum! Eclectic, hectic & delis! Avacado toast, Maple Sriracha Hash Browns & more. Line out the door the whole time we were here. Not just a donut shop! We can't wait to come for lunch next time.

Although the donuts are outstanding, you should eat lunch at Monuts, too. They have bagel sandwiches that are excellent and interesting. The menu varies and the owners have a sense of humor that makes the whole experience fun. Say hi to Jamie!

My breakfast hash with chickpeas, potatoes, and eggs was delicious. Flavorful tomato base with a cilantro note. The dark roast coffee also really tasty. Loved the communal tables.

Rented the house next door for a wedding in Durham. Great food as well as donuts. You can skip the bagels if you like New York style bagels. Monuts is a Funky experience. We were a Zebra waiting for our order.

Came here over the course of 4 years and definitively the best breakfast in Durham. On the weekend, budget some time if you're going there since there is a lot of crowd. Just spectacular donuts (rotating menu, changes daily) and even better sandwiches. I mean...More

This is a favorite place for week-end brunch. They have very good biscuits and sandwiches. But the donuts are really great! They have standard choices (such as chocolate glazed), but also unusual flavor combination (blueberry and basil). It can get very crowded and loud on...More

First of all, you need to snag whatever baked goods look interesting before they sell out (I had my eye on strawberry pastry but by the time I realized I had room for dessert, they were gone!). Second, know that this is a stand in...More

Agreed - but if you pay for 2 dozen my guess is he will find a way to pick them up. I take them to my class once a month and they are devoured. one dozen cake and one dozen yeast.
