Goodbye Magnolia Grill, Hello South Durham Farmer's Market

The Final Bites of the Last Supper at Magnolia Grill!
It comes with much sadness to bid adieu to Magnolia Grill. A staple of Durham, NC for 30 years, Magnolia Grill started the food revolution that the Bull City has to offer. 

Last night, Samantha (Director of Marketing & Events) enjoyed a final meal at the restaurant which included Twice Baked Grits Souffle, Halibut with Pesto and Shrimp and delicious desserts of Pecan Waffles with Ice Cream and Panna Cotta (above). NO, she did not eat all of this herself...she had help! 

On behalf of the King's Daughters Inn: Thank You Magnolia Grill. We are so thankful for small businesses like you for pathing the way in Durham.

With one door closing, another opens! The South Durham Farmer's Market has opened! Every Saturday at the Greenwood Commons at 5410 N.C. 55 from 8am-12 noon. We are particularly excited because our great friends, Kat & Dave, of Prodigal Farms Goat Cheese will be there with bells on!

Graduation Galore!

It's that time again! 
Graduation weekend and Duke and UNC. We are so excited to be hosting several families that will be celebrating their family member's college graduation.  There will be several gatherings here this weekend with family & friends and we are ready to begin the party!

And, don't forget, Mother's Day is on Sunday! Treat your Mama to a gift certificate for an evening stay at the Inn.  Not only will she have a lovely place to stay they next time she is in town, but you won't have to make up the guest bed!
