Parker and Otis: A Happy Place

img_4029Parker and Otis is one of my favorite places in downtown Durham for a coffee, a quick meal, the perfect card, a unique bottle of wine or a gift for a foodie.  Here is their blog, Second Helpings and some pictures that demonstrate why it is a special place! At Parker and Otis, local isn’t just a buzzword and every breakfast is prepared with eggs from Latta’s Egg Ranch in Hillsborough, NC and dairy products from Homeland Creamery in Julian, NC. Sandwiches are made with bread baked fresh daily at the Rue Cler Bakery on Main Street.
