Very trendy sandwich shop/bookstore/gift shop/and more. Sandwiches are really good, prices are very reasonable. They were pretty busy when we got there, so it is a pretty popular place. They also selling other things - wine, specialty condiments, books, games, gifts, etc. Good place to get a sandwich and shop while you wait.

The proprietor’s design aesthetic makes this one of the best curated gift shops in the world. Not only what they have but also how they are displayed makes everything irresistible. The sandwiches and candy and drinks offerings are amazing too!! A true Durham treasure for all ages set in the the delightful American Tobacco Campus.

Nifty little spot in brightleaf square- Once you order food, you can peak around the store to see all the nick nacks they have. Lots of local, shop small stuff, great for gifts! Quick note, they’re ‘wiches are delicious and flavorful, I would just expect for the price to include some sort of small side (chips/potato salad/salad), etc. Other than that, honestly great spot for a quick bite to eat!

Their chai lattes are delicious (try getting it with pumpkin!!) & they're always kind and helpful, even to the dozens of high school students on campus at lunchtime. The non-cafe part of the store has cute novelty gift options, but they're very overpriced. I've gotten some cute NC-themed postcards and gifts that I love!

If you enjoy sandwiches, Parker & Otis is for you. Parker & Otis is a bit hard to find if you don't park in the nearest parking garage, but it's well-located. And if you want to sit outside, they are connected to a covered area with a number of picnic tables. I enjoyed the tacos, but they were small! So keep that in mind as you order!

We were staying at a hotel nearby and wanted some good tea and coffee. We came across this gem near the baseball park. It is a gift shop and a pastry/lunch/coffee shop all in one. Very cool spot. They had great prices and even better drinks. Go here.

Good sandwich place with a lot of interesting things to see. Someone suggested that it was like a Cracker Barrel with the food and a shop. I think that is where the similarity ends because the shop part has a lot more interesting and better quality things in it. The food is better and the shop cleaner than any Cracker Barrel I have seen.
