"The day we dropped by, Loaf had various baked goods including croissants, muffins, cookies, pies and of course loaves of bread," Carpe wrote of the new location at 111 W. Parrish Street. "We chose a large multi-grain loaf for $4. It was a lovely, sturdy large whole grain loaf that stayed fresh a few days after we sliced it."
Sounds good to us.
We're encouraged by that trend for a couple of reasons. First, the next step in reinvigorating downtown is attaining a critical mass of vibrant businesses at street level. These two certainly qualify.
Second, it's just somehow totally Durham for something as humble as a farmers' market to be the launching pad for successful restaurants. Not surprising, though. In this town, we appreciate quality and support our own.
