Changes in the Neighborhood

by Steve Artabane

Amidst all the construction happening in our area around Central Park, there are other, maybe less noticeable changes that are helping shape this section of Durham. After years as our neighbor at 401 Foster Street, Daisy Cakes has recently closed. We wish Tanya and crew the best with new endeavors. In its place, Rise Biscuits and Donuts ( will be opening their second location.

Around the corner on Washington Street across from Stone Brothers & Byrd, Blue Note Grill ( recently opened, giving another full service restaurant and music venue option within a quick walk of downtown.

In the same building, Durham Distillery ( is open and if you can’t make it there for a tour or tasting, their Gin is now available at local ABC stores in Durham County.

Welcome to the block
