We went because a friend of ours said they have the best Cuban sandwich in town, and it definitely didn't disappoint. Absolutely delicious. The staff was very courteous, keeping our drinks full at all time, and the homemade chips were perfect. Would highly recommend!

The deserts are amazing. The best red velvet cake I've ever had. Service is impeccable. Coffee is okay. I've had better latte elsewhere in Durham. Reason why I only gave it 4 stars.

Great place. Food is excellent whether eaten in or as take-away. Their soups and sandwiches/panini a are fresh, well filled, and simply delicious. Parking outside is easy and convenient. Not a place to be missed!

I love Silver Cafe. It is a great spot for almost any occasion. I've gone by myself and ordered a drink while reading. I've gone on dinner dates with friends or my husband. We even go just to grab dessert. I probably wouldn't suggest it...More

Dulce continues to be a gem in SW Durham. A little European cafe experience just off Fayetteville. They have the best gelato in Durham made with great pride by co-owner Chad--fresh, rotating flavors will make it a destination place. And while speaking of best--they also...More

I agree with previous reply. There is no child's menu per se, but many items a child would enjoy. I think they have grilled cheese, and my grandson has always like their eggs for breakfast.
