Guglhupf is a really popular place to go for breakfast, coffee, brunch, lunch, dinner and beer! ANYTIME is a good time here! I came here for Sunday brunch and it was CROWDED! But, the line moved quickly. The patio is SO spacious and FUN to hang out! It's a great place for all ages. We had pancakes, bacon, croissants, danishes, muffins and brezels! Everything was really delicious. I highly recommend Guglhupf!

Brunch for 8, and sat outside in February thanks to great heaters & blankets placed on metal chairs. Fresh air, great company and great food & beer Order at the outside counter, get a number and find a seat. Large parties, like ours may have trouble one 1st or 2nd floor. Luck for us, no rain and ample outside space was climate controlled. Kippered Salmon, Ruebens, eggs, danish and other dishes were tasty - No plates left with food in them. 😏 YUM. Really great time and wonderful staff. Restrooms are ADA compliant, wheelchairs enter from patio and roll down hill. Full bar, wine & draft local & German beers. And the bakery attached, has such a great variety of foods z- dropped more $ on breads & pastry.

A good place to have brunch. I ordered salmon that was my favorite choice. I extremely like the bakery here. I got passion fruit coconut danish in the photos that made me want to go back in the near future. How tasty it is! It’s a big, fresh and unforgettable flavor. I could not find this kind of Danish somewhere in Cary or Raleigh.

Just happened to stumble across this place while at the used book store, and let me say it has been one of the best German meals I have had in such a long time. The staff were all very professional and courteous, and the soft lighting and small intimate space set the perfect mood. The beer was amazing and complimented my meal very well. I cannot speak highly enough of this place, do your self a favor and stop by!

I loved this place! The ambience was so lovely at night, especially on a fall evening. You order at the window and take a seat for yourself, and the options for dinner were amazing. I believe they do have gluten free options for those that need it! I got the schweine snitzel with vegetable soup and it really hit the spot! We also ordered an appetizer of various french, swiss, and Spanish cheese (which came with nuts and dried fruit). The cheeses were so good, will def come here for brunch sometime to try their pastries and cake items :))

Having been married in Germany, we felt Guglhupf was the perfect place to celebrate our anniversary and we were not disappointed. The food was delicious, there were excellent German beers on the menu, and the atmosphere eating on the patio was fabulous. Food was delivered to the table quickly and the staff were polite and helpful. Prices weren't too bad either. Great Durham staple!

Went to Guglhupf as a party of four for a weekend lunch. Easy parking. Menu has good variety. Queued up to order at the window, found a table, got our food. Didn't sample the beer this visit. Salad and sandwiches were great. We liked the atmosphere, though ymmv, and look forward to going back for beer next time.

First time goer. The atmosphere was nice. Not much of a fan of getting up to get my own utensils, water, to-go box, etc, nor waiting on line every time I have to order something and being asked if I want to tip. I get what they're trying to do, but pandemic aside, it doesn't make what has to be done any less annoying. Felt like being at an amusement park waiting for a rollercoaster. Food was okay for the price that needs to be paid, but honestly, it could have been better or a little more. Bakery goods were very good, though. All in all, good but could be better. Word of advice: don't go with a lot of people unless you all know what you want ahead of time to avoid standing on line multiple times to order if you forget something.

What a wonderful gem! The food was incredible, the decor is beautiful, and the service was great. I highly recommend checking this Bakery and Cafe out! They have many options on their menu. I also love a vegetarian friendly place!

Splendid setting, great food and good beer. Sitting in the Biergarten is a lovely experience and everything about the experience seems to complement the other parts. Peaceful, yummy, and very enjoyable. I presume that liking German food is a prerequisite to a full 5 star experience, but even if you are unsure, you won’t be disappointed by enjoying biers in the garden.

We visited to experience the German dinner menu and Biergarten. This is one of very few places that offered German beer offerings, which, is significant in itself. German beer is the king. They serve in a Biergarten tradition… order at the window style which is great, but, they could use an additional beer service window for that vibe. (Which I believe they are going more for the restaurant vibe than Biergarten so that’s kind of a 🤷‍♀️) The food was good! The portions on the brotzeit were generous and tasty. The schnitzel was nice and crispy, however, the mushroom gravy lacked complexity and flavor. Would happily visit again!

Having lived in 🇩🇪this establishment took me back! From the bakery, Biergarten, and restaurant it was very enjoying! The Schnitzel tasted just like I remember it, tender and juicy with a perfect breading. The Flammkucken was delicious too, the only difference here was the thickness of the bread. I recall it thinner and crispy. Nonetheless still very 😋 When you need a 🇩🇪 pick me up, pick Guglhupf! Tschüss

The fish sandwich was delicious. It was pan seared salmon which was so juicy. The atmosphere is also so cute and it would be a great brunch or lunch spot with friends. I like to take my friends from NY here. Don’t forget to stop inside their bakery shop either!
