    The duck breast with collards and sweet potato purée was divine. Clientele is a little old though.

    Everything was hyper salted; it's the first time in as long as I can remember that I left a meal authentically let down. Expectations not met.

    Amazing brunch. Nothing spectacular in terms of menu creativity, but you can taste the freshness of the produce which makes it worth the price. Get the churros with chocolate sauce to share!

    This delightful local favorite is one of the first places I take out-of-towners. It embodies the fresh, locavore vibe that Durham prides itself on and serves up delicious “nouveau” Southern cuisine. Read more

    Love this place for dinner. Brunch is a different issue. Rude wait staff, indifferent front of house, mediocre food. Disappointing experience in Durham for brunch.

    Surprisingly inexpensive (and delicious, of course) for brunch. Long lines - get there early or make reservations, or sit by the bar.
