Guglhupf is many things...upscale for dinner on the expensive side but with excellent offerings. Brunch and lunch are much more casual and affordable and also great. Their bakery is beyond compare, so plan to take some of their amazing pastries home with you!

Great Bakery, limited menu selection for breakfast but the pancakes were delish as was the Arnold benedict. Great place for when the weather is nicer, as they have a lot of outside seating.

We stopped by this cafe for brunch while in the Raleigh area for the night. The first thing that caught my eye walking in were the delicious looking pastries - I haven’t had a danish that good since being in Europe. Their expansive outdoor seating...More
