I love the consistency from Monuts coffees to go, and I had yet to dine in. I joined my friend for an early morning breakfast and brought my service dog aura. I was delighted that there were a few vegan items on the menu, but hope they consider adding more.

I loveeee monuts. Their food is so good. It’s a dangerous place though because it’s hard to go and escape without a sweet treat. Donuts, pastries, cinnamon rolls, you name it! It’s just such a cute little place for a weekend brunch or to stop in and grab a snack. Their fried chicken and pickle sandwich slaps!!

The food was so good! I had a seasonal sandwich with unique ingredients on it. We also had two donuts. Everything was fantastic. Would recommend going out of your way. The line is worth it!

Fabulous breakfast; a neighborhood treasure. Though I had to wait in line to order on this Federal holiday, the food and coffee came out pretty quick. Super high quality food sourced locally. Crowded with people and families of my children’s generation; looked to me like my generation was crowding up Elmo’s. Tried Monuts’ own Fresno hot sauce on my eggs, and had to get a bottle to take home with me…

Visited on a recent trip to Durham and bought a box full of goodies for takeaway. I chose two donuts which were tasty. The plain glazed was fluffy and too sweet while the apple cider was crunchy with a soft interior. I loved the butter pecan cookie as well. The chocolate espresso crumble bar had a chewy aspect that I didn’t like but loved the flavor.
Also had a takeaway caramel latte that I would rank in the top five of lattes I’ve tried.
Finally, a big shout out to Zac who was very helpful and friendly. A kind exchange early in the morning is always appreciated.

The donuts were delicious!
We also got two different breakfasts, my fiancé got a wrap that was stuffed with hash browns and he loved that.
I had the quiche which was amazing too.
The coffee was also delicious. We’ll be back when we’re in town again!

One of the few places in Durham that focuses on flavor over aesthetic. Amazing donuts and biscuit sandwiches. On top of all of that, that staff are very helpful and friendly.
The only crazy thing is that they are not open on Sundays. So if you want it on the weekends, you have to endure the morning rush.

My wife and I went in for a nice coffee and a quick treat to go… we ordered a few drinks and a couple pastries each.
Monuts pulled us in by the cute architecture and restaurant layout, enticed us to try so many more things than planned by having so many unique treats, and ever since has been a constant on our favorite places to visit in Durham ever since.
Having Duke gardens near by really made for a wonderful experience.
If you’d like a fun and chill way to start your day I recommend grabbing some breaky from Monuts and taking it down the street to enjoy it.
Unless you have more self control and want to stay in Monuts. If we stayed we’d just keep trying more and more of their delicious food.
Thank you Monuts for a great atmosphere, delicious food, and wonderful staff. Of

You cannot go wrong with monuts. Everything we tried was amazing. I first went here 9 years ago and got a Lady Gray donut that I remember to this day. The cinnamon roll and the blueberry pancake were both delish. The biscuit- with the homemade strawberry jam- with actual chunks of strawberries was a highlight. The quiche was great and even the side salad with it was good. I did go two days in a row- and did not regret it. The icing on the cake is the mission of Monuts- paying their employees a living wage. I felt good about the food and the money spent. If you are anywhere near Monuts, it’s worth a trip in.

Super crowded place really popular and many people come here and its near duke university. So much variety in food and the food is really good I got the breakfast food with eggs sausage potato and avocado toast and it was really well seasoned and it tasted fresh as if grown with farm grown vegetables and ingredients. Donuts were amazing and the chocolate cheesecake scone was too good. One thing I'd recommend for them is making the drink sizes larger.

Bread pudding was pretty disappointing, just a hefty block of uncooked French toast, with no sauce.. no silverware. Sandwich was okay but I'm just not ever recommending the bread pudding. The donuts are great here, and it's a consistent place for breakfast. No Internet either. It's a solid counter service location with a busy customer base.

We love the vibe of this cafe. Their cake donuts are probably why we went there in the first place. However I think we pretty much like everything we tried. Now I have gone multiple times, don’t remember exactly what all we tried, but don’t remember anything that disappointed. The beverages are great. Tried their gingerbread latte and Christmas tree mocha, both were strong and made hot, like I think beverages should be made :). The person behind the counter, the barista making the drink, were all pleasant to talk to. We also got biscuits to take home to make biscuits and gravy for breakfast and the OMG those biscuits were some of the best I have had! Reminder to go back and grab another pack of them.
The person at the counter told me that they typically start the day with multiple flavors of donuts which gets sold out in a couple of hours.Every time we go, the place is half to semi full. And there is a parking lot too. Let’s just say, I am a fan! :)
