When Andy needed a break from his hectic schedule in the medical field, the idea of serving the community Shelby’s pastries with coffee led the couple to purchase a trailer and start Whisk & Rye. Their rotating menu brings fresh ideas daily, with memorable staples like cinnamon rolls, vegan chocolate croissants, gluten-free ginger cookies and, of course, coffee.

Oh man, may I tell you that the first time i came here. I came here twice for their baked goods and latte. Prior to this place, I wasn’t into peanut butter but I had their Ballpark latte (if i could remember correctly) which I loved. I was introduced to this place by my partner and surely he was right about this place having the best baked goods.

Really good coffee shop. Their seasonal items are always unique, like the sweet potato latte. Pastries are also very good and they offer gluten free and dairy free options.

It’s dangerous that Whisk & Rye is within walking distance from my house 😂. They have a great, rotating selection of pastries and seasonal drinks. I had the best fall spiced latte this morning. Definitely worth the visit if you’re in the area

The madam that runs this place, truly is a wonderful artist in the pastry field. I grew up in Morocco and always had pastries. This was a welcomed bite of nostalgia and new. Very impressed. highly recommend . Go for the Croissant pecan roll. One bite that bihhh.

The best bakery and coffee in Durham! Tons of allergy- and dietary-friendly options for baked goods, delicious specialty lattes, and a great space to hang out and work or bring your dogs to sit outside. The owner and everyone who works there is fabulous. This place is truly a gem!

A hidden gem in Durham. The pasties are yummy and so are the drinks. I got this cinnamon knot (vegan) and a vanilla chai latte. It was so good that we were headed back the next day.

A bakery with vegan options! This is amazing. I was able to get pastries i though i would never get to eat again. This place really hit the spot with their out of this world vegan chocolate croissants and peach scones. I cant wait to try more of their tasty treats!
