About Us

Parker and Otis is a restaurant and gift shop.

Parker and Otis is a restaurant and gift shop located in historic downtown Durham, NC.

We are open seven days a week, serving breakfast and lunch with an amazing array of gifts, gourmet foods, cheese, wine and candy.

We value fresh local ingredients and use them whenever possible. Every breakfast is prepared with eggs from Latta’s Egg Ranch in Hillsborough and dairy products from Homeland Creamery in Julian, NC. Our sandwiches are made with bread baked fresh daily at Weaver Street Market in Hillsborough. We feature Durham coffee roasters Counter Culture Coffee to bring you the best roasted coffee beans and artisanal coffee drinks around.

In our gourmet section we stock many other local NC delicacies, such as Salem Baking Company Moravian Cookies from Winston-Salem and Goodness Gracies Toffee Cookies from Wilmington. Here you will also find hundreds of candy and gourmet food items from all over the world – from cutting edge haute chocolat to your favorite candies from days gone by.

In our wine department you’ll find a great selection of bubbly, as well as wines to have for dinner, everyday drinking, or hostess gifts. Did you love that bottle of wine you had dining out in Durham the other night? Chances are we have it here at Parker and Otis or can special order it for you.

With consistently friendly service, fresh and delicious food, and a plethora of gift options, come visit Parker and Otis for all the best that downtown Durham has to offer.
