Food was very good. I got the corn beef omelette and grits. Mmmmm. A slice of strawberry cheesecake. Yummy.

This was my first visit at this establishment. I had heard how great the pancakes were, so I ordered them. They were basically a good option.

My problem was when I expressed to the waitress, who I think is the owner’s daughter, that my peach cobbler was raw she didn’t do anything. I also expressed my concern to the lady at check out she did nothing. My country style steak was good. The mashed potatoes were out of the box.

This is the best Breakfast place in Durham. Run in an old Pizza Hut but it’s cool and very good food. I got the Chocolate Pancakes which was cheap around $9 and it was good. They have such great food and great customer service. Person who runs it knows what they’re doing and knows how to run an establishment. Thanks for the great food.

Great food, huuuge portions. Great service. They have homemade baklava you can pre order by the platter. The menu is extensive. Its a typical diner with extra special food. We frequent here now! Will post pix next time. Highly recommend the skillets.

Love Silver Spoon. Miss dining in! Our favorite waitress, Rita, always knows who we are and what meal we order no matter what time we would go eat! We do take out now since COVID-19 and the food is always delicious! Check out Silver Spoon for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Outstanding food and service! Everything is fresh’ made to order, but doesn’t take forever to come out! Traditional American fare and huge menu! You got to get the fried green tomatoes! Lunch today blessed my life! Corn beef hash was excellent too!

The friendly staff treats you like a person and always remember your needs. Real food that is delicious, done quick, or you can take your time. Special Mediterranean days are my favorite.

Food was great! Everyone in the restaurant spoke to me making me feel as if I was a regular with my picture on the wall. I left a $20 tip this doubled my food cost simply because of the service. The foos was fast and delicious. This was a pleasant suprise, great job guys.

As usual, my blueberry pancakes were on point. Along with bacon and two over easy eggs, that's all I really get when I go and they continue to be consistent. Waitresses are still friendly and seasoned ones are always seen helping the newbies. This is a great place to go during the weekday mornings by yourself to have some Me-time. Only suggestion: add a dark roast coffee. You can drink the coffee without cream or sugar. The pancakes and desserts would really be good with a richer blend.

I avoided this place because of how it looks from the street. That was a mistake! You don't go here for fine dining, you go for simple. Simple dining. Do you want food you recognize? Are you the type of person that feels relief when you understand everything on the menu? Are you down-to-Earth enough that the atmosphere is secondary to the food? Then you need to go here. You won't pay a lot and you will get a lot. It all tastes good and the wait staff are the kind of folks that see you as people and not as tip-machines. Go there wearing whatever you want. Bring a close friend or your family and leave the snobs at home. And yes, the sign for the restaurant looks cheap and the building is an old Pizza Hut. Don't be fooled. Remember, this isn't fine dining, it's simple dining. Go here for good food that you will devour.

I will admit that I drove by this restaurant for years and never bothered to check it out until recently. The outside/inside of the building looks kinda dated/needs some work so at first glance I probably would go somewhere else to eat. I finally got around one morning to try it with my husband for breakfast. And it was actually great! Good food and good staff! They obviously have people that are regulars and the staff would greet those people personally as if they were family. It is a great unknown mom and pop breakfast/diner restaurant. Ever since we tried it that one weekend we have gone there at least once every weekend since! Friendly people and good breakfast food!

This is essentially a diner with hometown spirit. The wait staff is super friendly, our waitress Kiki was so kind and happy that it really improved the experience. We enjoyed the fried green tomatoes, the shrimp dinner with hushpuppies, okra, and Mac and cheese, and the garlic bread. The grilled chicken salad was nothing to be excited about, but it's good for people looking to have a lighter meal with fewer calories. The iced water was refreshing and we got a carafe for the table so I didn't have to ask repeatedly for refills (it's hot, y'all). Don't expect fine dining, but do expect quality ingredients with superb service. We'll be back!

It's amazing I've been in Durham my whole life and never took the time to eat here. There is noting like a family owned food restaurant with great food. This breakfast, lunch and dinner spot is just that, the food was great the staff are friendly and the food prices are very reasonable. I definitely recommend anybody to go here if you like that southern hospitality feel with a family filled environment. I will definitely will be back with friends in the future.

This is a good place for breakfast and brunch. The menu is quite extensive and you are sure to find something you'll like. Two of the best things I've tried are the salmon cakes and the banana nut pancakes. Both are cooked to perfection and are very tasty. This place is very affordable and is family-friendly.

I love restaurants like this good cooking fair price there needs to be more places like this. I ordered corn beef hash omelet 5 eggs home fries and toast and enjoyed every bite had strawberry preserves on the table staff was very friendly.

I Loved The Sound in this Home Type Place from the Customers. It was Delicious as well as the Scrumptious Food. Everything was Truly Good from every Service, Beginning when you walk through the door, all the in-betweens. Even when it was time to Leave. So Pleasant. People on One Accord EnJoying Each Other As Family. Every Smile Was True From Their Heart, Not A Course From Taught Training. CLEAN LOVE. KEEP UP YOUR GREAT CONNECTIONS

A local favorite a friend introduced me to a few years ago. I love the family feel, quick service, fresh food and coffee in your own carafe. They have an extensive menu with lots of specials and desserts.

Great diner-style restaurant. Excellent family atmosphere--don't have to worry about our toddler either making a mess or refusing the food, the staff are all accommodating and kind, and it's a comfortable atmosphere. We live for all-day breakfast, so we've only had breakfast menu items, but they're always good. Toddler gobbled down a kid's cheese omelette, husband had the bacon Benedict (which, as a big eggs-benny fan, he loved), and I had a perfectly textured and delicious Denver scramble. If you're looking for a relaxed, unfussy, and yummy spot away from downtown hubbub, Silver Spoon is an excellent choice.

We wanted to try a new breakfast place in Durham. A quick internet search of “best places for breakfast in Durham” pulled up various lists. Silver Spoon Restaurant appeared on multiple lists and now we know why. The service was impeccable. Upon entering the restaurant, we were cheerfully greeted and quickly seated. Our server got our drinks and order. The food came out within minutes. Being a huge fan of corned beef hash, I ordered the corned beef hash omelet. It was absolutely delicious. The husband got the NC scramble and he raved about it. For a quick no fuss breakfast served all day, Silver Spoon in North Durham is hands down the choice. We will definitely be going back to try all the other corned beef hash offerings.

Friendly service with good food. Coffee carafe and water carafe on the table. The renovated Pizza Hut atmosphere was not a problem for us. Liked having a fresh fruit option for a side. Easy parking and no wait on a weekday morning.

We decided to try this breakfast spot in Durham for the first time. Truth be told, we were a little hesitant about going in because the outside wasn't that appealing however do not judge a book by its cover. We were greeted as soon as we walked in with smiles and excitement. I ordered the Pancake combo with eggs and extra crispy bacon and my daughter ordered the chicken and waffles with the option of chicken tenders and home fries. Everything was fantastic and our server Pam was very attentive to our needs. Will definitely be back
