OMG! A must try for breakfast and lunch. Fresh brewed coffee, danish, cakes, scones, breads, and cook to order breakfast options. WiFi, Everyone was on their computers just banging away. We had the chocolate chip filled croissant and blueberry scone. Excellent!

Our kids took us here during our Holiday visit. The food and staff were awesome. Particularly noteworthy is the menu-simple, yet covers a lot of cultures. Can’t wait to go back.

Loved them but we go once a year for our anniversary. The first year they made our wedding cake which was fantastic. Last year it was overpriced and terrible for two slices of cake and this year they missed the mark again. Not going back.

This is a popular spot with college students and hospital staff. There are several outdoor tables. Good Food and a great bakery. They have a killer Black and White cake that'll melt in you mouth. Good coffee as well.

Enjoyed a Sunday brunch/lunch on a first-time visit with friends while visiting the Duke U. East Campus. The atmosphere is bright and sunny, and friendly. You order up front and food is delivered to your table. My crab cake sandwich was delicious. My teen's chicken...More

This place is nice because you can easily eat either outside or indoors. The chicken salad sandwich was good but the kale salad knocked my socks off.
