 Known as the Fondue on Main, this fondue restaurants is located in Brightleaf Square in Durham. It offers chocolate and cheese fondue, in addition to salads, soup, meats, seafood and vegetarian options.

We're excited to present an extensive wine list, an assortment of craft beers, and unique "Durham cocktails," with personality, in addition to The Little Dipper classic signature drinks.

The atmosphere is warm, energetic, colorful and will make you feel at home from the moment you step foot in the door. Fondue is an experience, meant to be enjoyed slowly with friends, family and loved ones all sharing one common pot for cooking. Many customers have commented that it's the only time they are able to step away from life, slow down and enjoy good conversation with the one they're with. We have friendly, outgoing servers who are able to guide you throughout the evening as you enjoy the fondue adventure. Come soon and get hooked!

How it works? 

Our menu is set up as a three-course meal, which includes a cheese appetizer for the table to share, salads, and many entrée choices. Desserts are priced separately, but a definite treat that completes the entire fondue experience.

All of our tables are handmade with at least one shared burner in the center of the table. Fondue is unique in that everyone shares the pot to cook in which requires all to agree on one common cooking style, including Peanut Oil, White Merlot and Vegetable Broth, Port Wine and Beef Broth, Asian Firepot with Sake, Chicken Broth, or one of our seasonal specialties. The Little Dipper is known for our 17 different choices of homemade dipping sauces for your meats, vegetables, and seafood after cooking.

A separate pot on a side sterno can be requested for those with special dietary needs or vegetarian choices. In addition to the full course menu we offer an a la’ carte version which includes all of our cheese appetizers, salads, grilled meats, seafood, and of course the delectable chocolate fondue desserts.
