Rented the house next door for a wedding in Durham. Great food as well as donuts. You can skip the bagels if you like New York style bagels. Monuts is a Funky experience. We were a Zebra waiting for our order.

I love having a meal in Monuts and visiting the big statue of the rabbit that used to live inside Wellsping (the Durham grocery store that was eventually bought by Whole Foods). The food is always good and the service is friendly. It is a...More
