Hereghty is a French patisserie and cafe located at the Glenwood Village Shopping Center, which happens to be close to my office. It's a staff favorite lunch spot. We love the quiches - light but satisfying and served with a simple side salad. And of course we indulge in the desserts which are not only beautiful, but truly are heavenly delicious - worth every calorie! The Berlin, a tower of chocolate layers, and the chocolate chewies are the most popular. All served with a tolerable hint of snobbery.
I travel all over the state with my job, and I always look forward to my trips to Sylva so that I can dine at Lulu's! It's located in the quaint downtown area and has nice patio seating for warm days. The Pasta a la Greque (sp?) is my favorite - a warm pasta salad with greek veggies tossed in a lemon herb vinaigrette and topped with melted feta.
When my husband and I first moved to Durham we would drive by Locopops and wonder how a place just selling popsicles could stay in business. Then we tried it... We've been hooked ever since! They're not just popsicles, they're paletas (pah-LAY-tahs), Mexican-style frozen treats on a stick - and what a treat! The flavors are unique and include things like mojito, lavender vanilla, grapefruit basil, mexican chocolate as well as the more traditional vanilla. Yummm...
This is a great baby/children's consignment "boutique" with a good selection of new, hard-to-find items too (including Baby Legs, Fuzzi Bunz diapers, Lily Padz nursing pads, and Bravado bras). The pre-owned toys and clothes are in excellent condition. They are very particular about the items they accept for resale and offer cash and store credit (at a higher rate than cash). It's a welcome environment for nursing mothers (with a rocking chair available should you need to nurse), babies (with a well stocked changing station) and children (with a fun play area). There's always something new and I never leave empty-handed!
