Came here over the course of 4 years and definitively the best breakfast in Durham. On the weekend, budget some time if you're going there since there is a lot of crowd. Just spectacular donuts (rotating menu, changes daily) and even better sandwiches. I mean...More

This is a favorite place for week-end brunch. They have very good biscuits and sandwiches. But the donuts are really great! They have standard choices (such as chocolate glazed), but also unusual flavor combination (blueberry and basil). It can get very crowded and loud on...More

First of all, you need to snag whatever baked goods look interesting before they sell out (I had my eye on strawberry pastry but by the time I realized I had room for dessert, they were gone!). Second, know that this is a stand in...More

The place was packed, but they were super efficient. The donuts were pretty good, which was the reason we went, but not fantastic. However, the breakfast dishes were very, very good. The perfect combination of ingredients and preparation. I can't wait to go back.

Monuts has much more than just donuts, but be sure to grab a few to go for a later snack. The egg sandwiches are amazing and the entrees are delicious. The coffee is a bit acidic for my taste but other than that, it is...More

Agreed - but if you pay for 2 dozen my guess is he will find a way to pick them up. I take them to my class once a month and they are devoured. one dozen cake and one dozen yeast.
