Just the right balance of homey southern comfort and modern charm. (You can get unsweetened seltzer if you want it or pimento spread if that floats your boat).

This was our favorite restaurant in Durham. We stumbled across it for breakfast and the people could not have been nicer.
And the food! Unreal. Everything is homemade, served up with a yummy cheddar biscuit big enough to share.
I had the ham and asparagus scramble and it was light, fluffy and full of flavor.
We only wish we had been in Durham longer so we could go back.

Great brunch and lunch spot! Pretty big indoors and outdoors areas. I think it is a fresh spin on classic southern food. Can't recommend the pimento grilled cheese enough!!

There's also a cute shop to buy local treats but it's on the pricier side.

This restaurant on the edge of downtown is an excellent place for lunch. There are cookbooks and other specialty items sold in the space along with a decent selection of wines you can purchase by the bottle.

The flagship of three awesome shops, Parker and Otis, has it all. A coffee and snack to charge you for the afternoon, check. A delicious casual lunch, check. The perfect gift? Check. The mechandise is wide ranging, inspiring, and desirable. The food is great -- the chocolate chip cookies are my favorite! It's a nice place to window shop and a great place to actually shop.

Don't miss their companion store -- Chet Miller in downtown, and its adjacent baby store.
