Really good place. I don't mess around. There are places you go one time and know it will be great "each" time. I didnt have any issues i like the vibe of the establishment. People surely respect you there and that matters to me. Love em.

The food was good, the location is great, and so is the atmosphere and food choices. They offer a variety of food, for gluten free, vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores, so that's always a plus. I think that they could figure out a better system to get your food to you during their busy weekend brunch times. It was kind of hard to secure a table if you had more than two people in your party, then you have to go up and order food. They do give you a number so the staff can bring your food to you, but with it being so busy, the lady bringing our food out past by our table a few times trying to find us, until one of us asked her if she was looking for our number. Other than that, as I mentioned, the food was enjoyable and so was the atmosphere.

We love finding local places in Durham that support other local businesses as well as have quality food. I was really excited to order grits and I decided to get them with pulled pork and have 2 eggs over easy. The food exceeded my expectations! Every part of my meal was so fresh! We also ordered a side of sausage which was also amazing. Two of the managers are wonderful, Juliana and Elizabeth, and they really want to make sure you feel at home and are happy with your food and service! I wish I would have got a photo of the eggs on top but it still looks (and tasted) delicious!

I had the pulled pork loaded hashbrowns. Tasted good but really salty, didn't want to finish the whole thing. Coffee was nice quality. You have to order at the register, get your own drinks, condiments, silverware AND buss your table. I was surprised there wasn't a bleach bucket with towels so we could wipe down our tables too. I can imagine when the place is busy, that there are lines for everything you need. I went during a slow time, thank goodness.

Oh my gosh, I can't say enough about this place. Very fresh food, a good range of options and a welcoming staff. Please open up for dinner too!

Cute place to eat and hang out. We went for brunch and they had a very wide variety of menu items. I got the butternut squash and goat cheese toast which I was worried was going to be puny but was actually very sizeable and filling on deliciously thick bread. I got an iced vanilla latte which was a little too sweet for me. The service was very fast and friendly. Great spot.

Cute place, good brunch. Portion size was good...big, but not too huge to finish. Local foods on the menu and available for sale. Also, meals available for take out. My one complaint was that the whipped cream was a bit too sweet.

Breakfast served all day! A lot of variety of sandwiches, too! A cute little place. I got here around 2pm so it wasn’t crowed. Nice decor, pleasant staff. You order at the bar then pay. They give you a number and when it’s ready will bring to your table. I got the “Big Bull Breakfast “; 2 eggs over medium, bacon, sourdough toast and added hash browns and tea. The hash browns were great, tasted homemade, not frozen. The eggs were over cooked: eggs should never have brown burnt places. The toast was dry and not buttered. The bacon was good. I will come back to try their sandwiches but please, cook the eggs at a lower temperature.

This is one of those picture friendly, click worthy cute cafes. It's a little pricey for the quantity that was served. The taste however was great. I was delighted with my picks - the avocado toast and the vegan loaded hash browns.

Great atmosphere. It's a nice place to meet up or to sit and work. The food and drinks are pretty good (the gluten free bread is great!). Downside is it's a little pricey.

Bull and Bean is a cozy brunch spot that serves delicious food. There are local NC goods that are available for purchase aside from their menu. The Benedict breakfast selection is varied and absolutely a must try. Although it's not a budget or cheap brunch place, you get your money's worth in quality and quantity. Beware the limited seating if you are trying to dine in.

Good food. A hipster feel to it. Cant complain about much. Food was a little cold. But all in all pretty good.

Excellent restaurant and our fav for early takeout during Covid era. They always have interesting dishes that are not basic and traditional. Ingredients are always fresh as well as sauces. Online ordering is easy and convenient and menu has evolving dishes.

First time here and absolutely delicious!!! Wonderful atmosphere and relaxed vibe...and the FOOD is amazing. The potato hash with brisket bowl and the croissant with salmon were outstanding. Every ingredient was perfectly perfect in both dishes. This is the BEST breakfast we have found yet in Durham. We will be back soon and often to try everything else.

The food is excellent but the service is extremely slow. If you are given a 10-15 minute window for your food to be ready, add 10 additional minutes to avoid frustration.

The food here is delicious and the pancakes are my favorite in the area. It's simple gourmet food done well. We get it mostly for breakfast as a treat because it can be a bit pricey for a full meal for two plus a tip. I like the turkey sausage option and that I can get blueberries added to pancakes. Lots of options and weekend specials. Their crab cake salad for lunch is good as well.

Take and bake dinners are a deal. It is on my way home and it is easy with curbside service.

The food is tasty. The ambience looks nice, although we couldn’t eat inside (indoor seating closed due to pandemic). The staff was nice and answered our questions politely. Overall, a very good experience and recommended to try at least once if you are around. Ordered Eggs & Loaded Hashbrowns.

Wow. We stopped off after a visit to the post office and we’re so glad we did! My wife got a strawberry lemonade mimosa and I got the rose mocha espresso (with actual flowers in it - nice touch), our kids shared a strawberry lemonade- they were all sooo good. These came out after just a couple minutes. The meals were also very good. Lots of flavor and great ingredients! These took about ten minutes to come out. They have a good few outdoor tables, but you can go inside for the restroom or to by some of the items for sale. We’ll definitely be going there again!

I love the Bull and Bean so much that every July 7 I start out my birthday here. And I dream about their hash browns and brisket bowl between visits. (Even though it is so popular, it’s easier to find a table here than to find a parking space in the large lot, despite the skinny parking spaces.) Some places have good food but horrible coffee. Good coffee places rarely have good food. The Bull and Bean has both. Breakfast, brunch, or lunch here is a celebration.

The food was amazing! As someone who has celiac and needs to eat gluten free it was so nice to have gluten free options labeled right on the menu. I got the loaded hash browns and they are the best hash browns I have ever had. Highly recommend going here if you need a gluten free option.

🤔 well I believe this is a very tasty place, unfortunately the breakfast burrito I had was a bit -too much- egg for my tastes. Would have enjoyed more cheese and sausage mixed in. It also was pretty stuffed and kinda messy, however It was very tasty in parts!! I probably won't get it again, and just try something else, the iced mocha was dope👌🏻😎

Saw this was a top restaurant to try. I Came here for a brunch with a friend from out of town. The food was decent but could have used a little more flavor. Only complaint is that my friends grits were cool and not hot so they were a little sticky. The soup was warm and not hot. Nice area to sit outside and eat.

Absolutely delicious breakfast/brunch food! Get the rose white mocha coffee! The pancakes are fluffy and poached eggs perfect! I keep coming back and I'm never disappointed. I wish they would serve cutlery to the guests individually to avoid contact with other guests.
