Just had lunch here with my Mam, corned beef pie, peas chips and gravy x 2, pie was homemade and the gravy was lovely. Frozen chips but nice ones! At £5.95 each we'll definitely be back, we're stuffed! Coffee was very nice too.

On a cold, windy day in Durham, this was just the place to be for a delicious and reasonably priced lunch. There were 6 of us and though it is always a popular and busy cafe, there was no trouble in nipping in an hour and a half before we wanted to eat & reserve a table. No problems -... More

This was our second visit to Treats. The first being more than two years ago. Treats is a popular place for lunch but we didn't have to wait long for a table. Everyone very friendly and helpful. Portions are very generous and nice to get free filter coffee refills. We would definitely visit again when in Durham.

Had a breakfast there yesterday and it was great in terms of quality and taste. Never had a bad meal there ever and am surprised to read comments about staff being unfriendly as both myself and my wife would definitely not agree. We'll be back next week.
