9 Altars is located right on the river in the centre of town. I would tend to grab a coffee and one of their brownies and then sit and ponder on a nearby bench. They also do fantastic cakes. They are delish but very big - alright for sharing though!
I had their club sandwich once with Elena and I must say it was fantastic. You should go along and try it.
This picture was taken from their Facebook page but gives an idea of the kind of beast we're talking about!
Nice one Durham.
