EAT OUT: Guglhupf Bakery & Patisserie - Durham, NC

 Guglhupf Bakery & Patisserie was the first restaurant we checked out in Durham since moving here. I didn't know anything in the area, so as always I go to my reliable source: Yelp! It had some great reviews about this place, and as always, it was true to its reviews! 

    I was very pleased with the food along with atmosphere of the place! I love great food, but just like drinking a great wine off of a wrong cup, eating wonderful food in a not so pleasant environment can have a tremendous influence in your food experience. To me this place becomes great because of the environment experience!
I ordered the Turkey-Brie-Apple Sandwich with
Potato Salad As Side (second photo above) and my husband ordered the chicken club sandwich (first photo above)but we shared both. The turkey-brie-apple did not meet my expectations, it was good, but not great. The potato salad far exceeded the sandwich itself. The chicken club sandwich on the other hand was very good! The one we ordered came with a very fresh yellow tomato that was simply delicious. All the ingredients in the club sandwich were fresh and perfectly ripen!I normally don't order a club sandwich, but after enjoying this one so much, the second time we returned to this restaurant 
or lunch, I ended up ordering it "not to share"! :)

Following are some photos we took of the place:
 Outside, looking into the patio area
Inside has a mixture of posh and modern decoration, just beautiful!

Outside is very pleasant, with water fountain relaxing sound

  An open skyline with lots of greens! Very relaxing, especially if you luck out and don't get a large crowd.                                    

 Oh, desserts! My "strongest weakness"...if you can say such thing! :) So delicious!!! I left the place desiring to return to try out the luscious coffee drinks I saw on Yelp along with one of the many beautiful desserts they have. Still have not done that yet, but plan to very soon.

Check these photos from Yelp:

Definitely coming back for that! :)
