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

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! :)

I love this little cafe! The staff are very nice and welcoming. And there’s always plenty of seating.
The Apple cider donut is amazing as well as the chocolate & peanut butter latte. Honestly I don’t think you can go wrong with anything on the menu.
It’s a really nice place to read, study or just grab a bite with some friends.
