Went there after a long time away; good memories brought us back. At lunch/brunch you can expect to wait for awhile to get a table. Biggish menu, Lots of "green options" as it right across from UNH campus and caters to the tastes. Service was OK; prices up a bit. Food was just OK, but I guess the cooks were... More

This was our second trip to Young's and it was just as great as the first. This is a "typical" diner sort of place, with all day breakfast and a lunch menu that includes all your favorite burgers, sandwiches and salads. This is one of the few places I have ever visited that has a Reuben PLUS the option of... More

Young’s Restaurant celebrated its 100th anniversary on September 12th with breakfast and lunch specials, plus cake at noon to mark the centennial. I ate breakfast at this downtown Durham landmark which is known for serving locally sourced food, including vegetables from Mr. Young‘s own garden. It's a local favorite for morning gatherings. I ordered the day’s special at 1916 prices.... More

Breakfast is the name of the game at Young's, although lunches are fine, too. Not a gourmet experience and the coffee is only so-so, but it's the local "place to be" for early food in downtown Durham. Friendly service and plenty of local folks as well as college parents and -- ahem -- slightly hungover undergraduates.

I've grew up in Durham NH and used to go to Young's all the time as a kid but I haven't been here in well over 20 years. My son is now a Freshman at UNH and thought it would be a great place to have breakfast We went around 9am and was surprised that it wasn't overly busy. We... More

Great little restaurant in downtown Durham New Hampshire. I love breakfast food of just about any kind or type. Today I had their Biscuits and Gravy dish and my wife had their Salmon Eggs Benidict. And we shared a side of Cinnamon Swirl French toast. All was amazing! We devoured everything. Young's sources local products to preserve freshness and quality... More

Food here is always good. Nice variety for breakfast and lunch. Food is consistently good. Service is good. Pretty much exactly what you would expect at an in town luncheonette/diner kind of place.
