Great place to eat, meet, work

We spent the weekend in Durham and after looking at the menu decided to try Beyu Cafe for Mother's Day family breakfast. It was terrible. I had a spinach, tomato and cheddar omelet that was lukewarm and oily tasting. The home fries were just deep fried potato chunks that were also cold and dry. The sausage patties were cold and...

I'm doing this review rather late. I don't remember what I had ate, but it was pretty good. I noticed that the cheesecake was commonly ordered. They do lock the doors at 2 pm. The place was pretty loud so I went outside for some air and they locked me out. I had to knock to have them let me... More

This cozy spot is usually one of my favorite lunch choices, but yesterday we stopped in to grab a quick bite during their Sunday brunch. We had one hour to eat and get to the train station. When we realized that there was a wait, we told the hostess that we would just go somewhere else since we were under... More

A decent place for breakfast in downtown Durham. The biscuit and egg dish is good (though I've had better biscuits), and the atmosphere is relaxed.

I stumbled into this place somewhat accidentally, and I have to say I am glad I did. I did not eat here, but my latte was fantastic. My father's espresso was excellent. When it comes to Italian style espresso, we are very picky-- having lived in and visited Italy a lot. The place seemed cozy for jazz nights ( there... More

My review was based on two trips to the Beyu Caffe. My morning choice was a special coffee drink of the day - Peppermint Bark latte. I loved that they had a soy option. For lunch I had a veggie plate with each of the vegetables cooked to perfection - not over cooked or wilted. We had six people at... More

This place is bright young and sophisticated in otherwise gloomy downtown Durham. The service is good the breakfast that I had was good to even though the omllet was prepared with too much oil. And the flow? You don't expect from a restaurant like this to charge you almost a full price on a refill of a cup of coffee.

I can't name a better place to hold a business meeting or meet a client. This place has great food, great service and free fast wifi - what else could you ask for??

The setup is ideal for a small band - you can get close and the sound is perfect. Make sure you get a reservation for whomever is playing that night. We didn't eat here - but the drink service was great for a Saturday night.
