Monuts review image


If you have one breakfast in Durham, or you land at RDU any time before 2pm, the first place you should go to is Monuts. What started as a donut cart at the farmers market is now a bright, large space with tables and a wraparound coffee bar - and one of the best and most popular breakfast/lunch spots in the area. This means on weekends, there’s a line from morning until close (4pm), but it moves quickly and gives you more time to choose between the eight or so donut options. Get a few to share along with a BEC with maple sriracha or fried chicken biscuits with pickles and hot honey.
