Met these folks in the morning at the Durham Farmers Market. Excellent bread, samosas, muffins, etc. Hunted down their storefront/bakery. Yummy, well-spiced curried veggie soup for dinner. Cozy place to hang out, including an indoor Little Free Library and an outdoor patio. Delish food and very reasonable.

Best place in Durham for a cinnamon bun!!! We love this place and have been a patron for years!! They also make beautiful breads, and have a great little deli to grab a treat, local coffee, and chill:) Check them out at the Durham Farmer's Market !!!!

Had a fantastic breakfast catering experience with Ninth Street Bakery. They arrived a few minutes early and the pastries, fruit and coffee were delicious! I'd highly recommend them for your breakfast meeting catering needs.

Water Review: The water was very good... kept cold in a stainless steel cooler and easy access for water bottle refills. No aftertaste with this delicious water. The water area was a bit messy so I took a star off. Overall, high quality h2o.

Excellent Veggie Sandwich, every time. And the coffee is excellent! Very fast, always friendly and helpful; they will adjust cooking and condiments, lighter fare; day-old bread selection is a real winner.

Love the coffee here. It's $1.85 for a small cup and it has a great taste. I also love their cookies! Peanut butter and chocolate is my favorite.

Good croissants and good coffee. It's a working bakery that open so it can get pretty loud.

Love their double chocolate walnut cookies. If you like a not-too-sweet slightly chewy cookie like me, this is the place to go ! I thought their brownies are a little too sugary but my friends love them, so it comes down to personal preference.

This place is 30 minutes from my home but I took the drive to try it out. The sandwich menu that I saw online sounds really good. Well when I got there, they only had 1 sandwich on the specialty menu which was the veggie melt.. it didn’t sound too appetizing since I’m not vegan and love meat in my sandwiches. I decided to try it out anyway since I drove all that way. I was told they could not make it since they were closing early at 4:30. It was 3:30 when I got there which is a whole hour before they were closing so I didn’t really understand why they couldn’t make it. Ended up leaving & eating somewhere else. Just seems like poor planning. & the employees did not seem too friendly. No greeting/smiling and lots of conversations with each other. I’ll try this place again next time and update my review.

This has quickly become my favorite spot to do work in Durham, due to the unlimited coffee refills, relaxed atmosphere, and reliable WiFi. The pastries are incredible, my favorite being the tartine, and I also deeply love the chili. Parking and finding a table are both very reliable and low-stress. They also send me frequent rewards and special offers. I love their emphasis on collaboration with other local vendors. I often enjoy a vegan oat ball or other baked good at Cocoa Cinnamon. I am so glad for the existence of this bakery.

Ordered the assorted cookies for my on Valentine's Day. They arrived on time with Postmates and were delicious. The Everything cookie is the best.

Great vegan chili. Prices are awesome. Food gets to you quickly. They sent me a coupon after my first visit for $5 off my next visit which was super easy to use.

Big shout out to Ninth Street Bakery for hanging in there during the epidemic and still supplying the team with box lunches. I lived the roast turkey sandwich and WOW was that a BIG cookie 😁👌. I'm still partial to the pumpkin muffin though and the almond cake I had once

Hooray for discovering new local businesses. I discovered their bread at a local big grocery store, and decided I wanted to get it fresh from the source. What a treat to get my weekly bread PLUS a delicious sandwich and chips for lunch. Contactless delivery and plenty of measures in place to keep us safe if we pick up a to-go order. I'll be back again soon!

As a lifetime cookie monster, I must declare their peanut butter chocolate chip cookies among the best I've had anywhere! I've loved the sunflower bread for years, but try their special breads - every week a different take on true artisanal baking. The focaccia shown was amazing. All this and sandwiches too!

Nice guys doing their best to smile thru the masks. 1 star off for not having common-sense outside seating. SOME of the tables and chairs could have been used by customers, but they were ALL blocked off.

I had made an online purchase out of the blue late yesterday evening because of my father’s recent news of his oldest sister dying of COVID-19. He is a very big fan of delicious, well made baked goods and so I wanted to surprise him with a box of a dozen pastries. He absolutely loved every single one from Ninth Street Bakery! They were definitely made with love; fresh and baked to perfection, his favorites were the blueberry cream cheese danish & almond croissant! I want to thank NSB for a lovely first time experience & helping me cheer my dad up a little, I will definitely be coming back for more! 💛 🍪

Ninth street Bakery has been a favorite of mine since it was actually on Ninth Street, now located in the loading dock nook of the former Herald Sun building on Chapel Hill street and Main streets near 5 points. The best on the menu continues to include black bean soup and their signature breads (remember this is a working bakery as well as the value lunch deal place in gentrified downtown.) Now I enjoy Indian or Thai seasoned Lentils (see Dahl in the Indian context and curry in the Thai). For vegetarians they have a non melt or melty vegetarian sandwich. Both do the trick and come with either slaw or bag of chips. Meat lovers will find a good choice in the cold cut deli sandwiches. Pastries, and cookies are very size generous and tasty.

Each time I visit Duke University, this bakery is a must stop- Ginger snaps, breads, scones, ALL GOOD and GREAT service! The owner saw me outside (after they had closed) and invited me in. Highly recommend.

I LOVE 9th Street Bakery! You can actually smell the fresh cooked bread in the parking lot BEFORE you enter! Imagine the deliciousness inside?! Wow.....

Amazing bakes, and very COVID-cautious environment (which is very important to me right now). They ask you not to enter the store without a mask on, but still provide service outside if you do not have one. When I was inside, a customer took his mask off and the employees immediately (but very politely) asked him to put it on or leave. Their baked goods are incredible as well, I've never had something that I didn't like there!
