Find a Little Luck in the Kitchen this St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day brings everyone the opportunity to celebrate their love of all things Irish, and if you’re a guest at our Durham, NC bed and breakfast from March 14th – 17th you may just be feeling the luck of the Irish during your stay. We’ll be getting into the holiday spirit by offering our guests an opportunity they won’t find at any other Durham, NC restaurant, the chance to enjoy Chef Phil’s outstanding Irish Feast. This meal will celebrate St. Patrick's Day traditions like corned beef, cabbage, and soda bread but with Chef Phil’s own special twist as well. You can also look forward to enjoying split green pea soup with garlic croutons, roasted red potatoes with rosemary, and chocolate bread pudding with Irish Crème Sauce!

But your luck won’t stop there, this is St. Patrick’s Day! In addition to enjoying the Irish Feast you’ll also have the chance to join Chef Phil in the kitchen as he leads you in a scone-making class. That’s right, you’ll have the chance to learn how to make those famous Arrowhead Inn scones at home. We hope that even if you know how to make our delicious breakfast treats you’ll still want to come and visit us to enjoy Durham NC’s restaurants, arts and culture, and athletics (Durham Bulls baseball season is right around the corner!)

So if you feel like finding a little of that Irish luck this St. Patrick’s Day make your reservations for an Irish Feast and Scone-Making class at our Durham, NC bed and breakfast. This unique experience is just $65/person or $130/couple. Call to reserve your spot today!

Durham's Best Places to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

Valentine’s Day is rapidly approaching, so hopefully you have something special planned for your sweetheart like a romantic stay at our luxury bed and breakfast in Durham. But if you’re more of a year-round romantic, or perhaps you and your sweetheart just have a serious sweet tooth, there are plenty of places right here in Durham that have made chocolate, cupcakes, and all things sweet their specialty!
Cocoa Cinnamon
Chocolate comes in many
forms at Cocoa Cinnamon

First up, Cocoa Cinnamon. If you’re looking for coffee and chocolate together you can’t miss this spot. This cozy little spot near downtown Durham offers fantastic coffee as well as sipping chocolate. Haven’t tried sipping chocolate yet? Think thick, rich, velvety chocolate blended with cream and served at the perfect temperature to sip and savor the full flavor of chocolate.

If you’re looking for more traditional baked sweet treats, head over to Scratch. Everything from pies, to muffins, and other delicious pastries, making a choice of what to try at Scratch will be a tough decision to make. To make things even more interesting they feature ingredients from local farms and producers to help give their treats the unique taste of Durham.

Rose’s Meat Market and Sweet Shop
Try a sample of sweets at
Rose's Meat Market and Sweet Shop
While you’re downtown it certainly wouldn’t hurt to swing by Monuts Donuts. Here you can satisfy your sweet tooth with exotic concoctions like chocolate chai or chocolate covered strawberry donuts.

Finally, we suggest you head over to Brightleaf Square and check out the sweet side of Rose’s Meat Market and Sweet Shop. Like so many of our favorite places in Durham they bring their own unique twist to traditional favorites like fruit galettes, panna cotta, and meringues.

So don’t think chocolates and sweets are only for Valentine’s Day, especially here in Durham!
