Great place. Food is excellent whether eaten in or as take-away. Their soups and sandwiches/panini a are fresh, well filled, and simply delicious. Parking outside is easy and convenient. Not a place to be missed!

I love Silver Cafe. It is a great spot for almost any occasion. I've gone by myself and ordered a drink while reading. I've gone on dinner dates with friends or my husband. We even go just to grab dessert. I probably wouldn't suggest it with kids or large groups. The space is very nice, somewhat cozy. There are couches... More

Dulce continues to be a gem in SW Durham. A little European cafe experience just off Fayetteville. They have the best gelato in Durham made with great pride by co-owner Chad--fresh, rotating flavors will make it a destination place. And while speaking of best--they also have the best soups with the Lentil soup the year round star. Amazing gazpacho in... More

There is also a selection of coffee drinks and tea. My last visit I chose a simple tuna salad sandwich, and was pleased that... More

Ithis place has soups, salads, sandwiches and luscious desserts. This time I had a Greek salad that was very tasty and fresh with lots and lots of feta cheese. The dressing was very good. Since I made brownies the day before so I didn't partake of the wonderful desserts but it was hard to pass them up.

I've been here before in the evening for tea and dessert it was great, service was fast and the atmosphere was nice. I decided to come back and try the lunch. I had a Greek salad it was great but underneath my feta cheese was yellow/white crunchy Romain hearts. I had very little green lettuce in my salad. I was... More
