I eat here every once in a while for lunch. You have to go into their specialty store to order and food runners bring out your food. Staff is friendly & food is fresh & tasty. Kind of pricey, depending on what you choose but portions are large so you can almost split with a friend if possible. Nice outdoor eating area plus we've had them cater for work lunches also.

One of our favorites. The sandwiches are fresh and stacked. Everything is fresh and the bread is soft. Fruit is fresh and a good option instead of chips. Love being able to look through the shop with all the specialty items and they have the best greeting cards. The outside seating area is nice and spacious.

Very good brunch food and the staff was really nice. Honestly, the only "curveball" with my visit was sitting inside (should've sat out under the covered patio); the inside tables are essentially in a boutique shop. Nothing awful, just a little strange to be eating while a shopper is 2 feet behind me asking the staff about candles & bath salts or whatever.

This site is really an awesome place, not just for the food, which is top at any moment of the day, but also for the place itself. Terrace at rhe back of the building is delicious...plenty of bended industrial metal that somebody turned into a kind of state of the art for day to day furniture. I've went for breakfast a couple of times and for sure I'll be there my next time in Durham.

We stopped in to Parker & Otis to savor their artistically rendered Lattes and lose ourselves on their spacious covered deck. While we’ve dined there previously, this visit was exclusively for the Latte experience—which did not disappoint. It’s nice to linger on the back deck amidst others around you immersed in their studies or engaged in animated dialogue. Of course, you can pull up a high stool and enjoy on the bar in the serving area, as I have done several times, or take it in the front area.

If you’re not local (on foot), you’ll probably have to snag metered parking. Now you can use your credit card and smart phone rather than rummage for change.

Always, the Latte at Parker & Otis is lovely and the ambiance a marvelous opportunity to lose oneself into a few extended moments of joyous inner radiance and rapture...
