DaisyCakes in Durham to close cafe; Rise Biscuits & Donuts to replace it

Posted by on Mon, Aug 10, 2015 at 11:32 AM

Hat tip to Carpe Durham, which tweeted this morning that DaisyCakes is closing its cafe on Foster Street on Friday, Aug. 21.

However, owner Tanya Matta is looking for a downtown spot to open a dessert room, which, as she says in her farewell statement, is her passion.

In its place? Rise Biscuits & Donuts, which is expanding its empire to downtown from its mothership near Southpoint.

This is great news for those downtown denizens who've missed Monuts Donuts since it moved to Ninth Street.
