Mad Hatter in Durham?
Has anyone beem to the Mad Hatter bakeshop in Durham? What are your thoughts?
this is a great brunch place. very Dukey with kind of snotty clientele but very nice waitstaff. and the food is good - good homefries, coffee, decent eggs, and not greasy.
Had breakfast/lunch there yesterday and was underwhelmed. Tried a cheese danish that was tasteless and gluteny, a scone that was more the consistency of a muffin and two sandwiches. Their Cuban sandwich, though not traditional, was pretty decent. The Thai wrap was a wad of unseasoned white rice, bland chicken and some ok veggies. As far as ambiance, it felt like hanging out in a Duke dining hall. Definitely suggest Rue Cler, Vin Rouge, and Guglehupf (never remember if I'm spelling that correctly)
