Mad Hatters in Durham

I had breakfast there recently and it was horrible! I had this egg dish served in what was basically a fried taco shell (like the kind in which a taco salad is served). The dish--I think it is called Eggs Rancheros--was cold and soggy. The fried shell tasted old and greasy. At least the coffee was good.

  1. I am not surprised. Are they under new management/ownership yet? They have definitely gone downhill over the past 2-3 years, so I stopped going there. Personally, I got tired of no decaf coffee brewed up at night, dirty tables and trashy trash areas, and a "no computer" policy that made no sense to me. I liked to study on the weekends but marked them off of my list of places to spend my money when they told me I couldn't be there at 3 p.m. on Saturday when it was dead.

    I would like to hear if anyone knows if the change of ownership had happened and if not, when?

      Wow I used to smoke there when I was in high school. The desserts and milkshakes were always good. I would not be suprised if what sarah says is true. Biscuit King rules!
