Parker and Otis is a counter-service lunch spot inside a kitschy gift shop that sells things like local jams, hand-painted egg cups, and the kind of drink coasters that someone definitely gifted you for your housewarming two years ago. But what you really come here for are some of our favorite sandwiches in Durham. Somehow they’re able to make options like egg salad or a BLT far better than what you’ll get anywhere else - especially since they all come with a side of some of the best coleslaw we’ve ever had. Order inside, accidentally buy $20 worth of bulk candy while you wait, then eat on the airy outdoor patio.
