If you have never eaten at True Flavors Diner then you should go right now. In all honesty, it is the best breakfast I have had in Durham. Which is a lot to say given the amazing restaurants we have in town.
For starters, they bring you fresh biscuits with homemade jam prior to your meal. Needless to say they are delicious! Everything we have eaten at True Flavors Diner has been delicious but here are some of my family’s favorites: Southern Comfort Chicken Biscuit, Chicken and Waffles, Pancakes, and the Lump Crab Omelet.
I have to admit that the actual strip mall it is located in, Greenwood Commons Shopping Center, is a bit outdated but it does house this wonderful restaurant along with others and the South Durham Farmer’s Market (held on Saturday mornings). Luckily, once you step inside True Flavors Diner it is hip, modern, and has a great ambiance. The decor is perfect, they have their own herb garden, and a lunch counter where you are able to see the cooks at work.
I take out of town guests here every time and it is always a hit. I truly can’t recommend True Flavors Diner enough!
