This is one of the best bake shops I’ve been to. The morning bun is so good, it has a nice cinnamon taste and the lattes are really good too. This would be a great place to visit for a treat or to relax because it has good vibes.

Whoa! Amazing place for both classic and unique baked goods galore featuring local ingredients. Great selection of tea and coffee as well. Highly recommend!

Absolutely love this place! I moved into the neighborhood this past May and East Durham Bake Shop is my go-to for morning coffee during the week, as well as a weekend workspace. I love their Matcha Buns, it is a morning bun with matcha paste on the inside. The staff is pleasant and kind, they are paid a living wage, and there is a gifting wall where previous customers have paid for treats for folks in need. All in all, a great spot.

Love this bake shop!! I love stopping here on my way to work. Never can go wrong with the pasteries. They are absolutely delicious! I personally love the Golden Milk (although their seasonal Chegnog is amazing!!) and I love their twice baked almond croissants (they actually have almond filling and the correct amount (lots)). I love the giving board. The place is cute and cozy. Absolute favorite!

What a wonderful little gem in Durham. They have sweet items and savory ones too. My family and I stopped there on the way to South Carolina , definitely worth rerouting our trip to go to one of my Instagram places. The customer service is great as well. We ate a gaggle and took a bag to go! #lovethisplace❤

I have been eating their pie since “pie by the slice” nights at Ponysaurus years ago. I finally made it to their brick and mortar and it did NOT disappoint. Service is casual and creates a family kitchen atmosphere. The coffee is local and delicious. And the pie ... amazing! Not one blueberry left behind. Can’t wait to visit again.

I have followed this bake shop on social media for a year before I made the trip out and it was totally worth it (also, highly suggest following them on insta for updates & mouth watering pics!). Such an amazing vibe, my chai latte was fantastic, and the French toast/bread pudding muffin was the most delicious thing!!! I HIGHLY suggest anyone to come!!! I plan on working from there a lot this summer!❤️

Never had a better croissant in my life! This place knows how to bake. And it's all delicious. Start with a croissant but by no means end there! Sweet or savory, they have it down. Also a lovely place to work on your laptop or meet a friend for coffee and a treat. Keep up the good work, y'all!

The location and aesthetics are a great recipe for a down home experience. The menu has the perfect selection of coffee, tea, and pastries! This place insights the patron to stop, breath, and enjoy.

Great coffee and lovely building. It is a wonderful place to go sit and have a small bite to eat/coffee and study or work.

A lot of salt on the evening bun. Otherwise it's fine. I'm people working in the baking section, possibly the owner, I'm not sure of, Are a bit odd I think. You don't have a warm fuzzy feeling when you go in there.But I like the shop and I do go in there whenever I pass by. Parking is a bit difficult though.

I had a summer drink called a lemonanna. It's a surprising blend of lots of flavors. At first I wasn't expecting all the flavors but after a couple of sips I REALLY liked it. As always the staff is just amazing. You can't go wrong coming here!

Great quaint shop with delicious food and coffeehouse! A bit pricey but they bake everything there. Not the best area and parking is limited.

The lemon honey chess pie is amazing. I never liked chess pies until I had this one. The buns and scones are also great.
