About Soul Cocina

Soul Cocina, Rangel-Duque’s Latin-American eatery, prides itself on its plant-based food with an emphasis on local and gluten-free ingredients. Born in Colombia, Rangel-Duque learned the art of food and the importance of agriculture. She brings this passion for fresh food and her knowledge of age-old traditions to the Triangle in the form of delectable dishes like tamales and pasteles de yuca.

Rangel-Duque started Soul Cocina in 2015 with the goal to bring innovative food to people from all walks of life.

About Chocolatay Confections

Drawing inspiration from the other side of the globe, Matthew and Danielle White created Chocolatay Confections where they craft European-style treats by hand. They make a variety of tempting treats like bonbon bars, brittles, pralines, and caramels. In fact, their Sunflower Crunch Cup received a Good Food Award in 2018.

Matthew and Danielle White moved to Chapel Hill in 2012 and began Chocolatay Confections to share the joy of chocolate with others. We’ve been saying for a long time that Durham needs its own chocolate shop. Feel free to find a permanent location in Bull City, guys!

The PopUp experience at the American Tobacco Campus in Durham was created to feature unique entrepreneurs that bring a special flair to the Triangle through good food and community.

You can find the PopUp space off Blackwell Street next to Only Burger.
