I don't know why it took me so long to go to the Beyu Caffe but you can bet I will be back. Service was excellent and the space it occupies is quite nice (though do note parking can be difficult). I had an excellent shrimp and rice dish and got a coffee to go. Their lunch menu is quite... More

Unusual entrees, very well prepared, excellent service and enjoyable jazz afterwards - what's not to like?

We had wristbands for the Art of Cool Jazz festival and this was one of the locations for shows. We had never been here but have passed it a million times on Main Street. What a treat. The coffee drinks are great, the desserts are out of this world. Great place to listen to live music. We will definitely be... More

We found Beyu on recommendation of the hotel staff at the Durham Mariott City Center, when we attended a conference LAST year! We ate there for dinner that night and loved it so much that we returned the next morning for breakfast and coffee! And stopped by for coffee before heading back home, as well! When we found out that... More

The menu had more options than I expected, and after sampling everything my table ordered, it seems that all the options are good ones. The server was very friendly, and the coffee was excellent. Would love to return for the amazing-looking desserts!

Generally, I don't leave reviews when I don't sample the food, but this is the exception. My friend and I walked in for some coffee and a treat. The restaurant looked cool. We walked in and the hostess did not look up and told me it would be a minute. They have a little coffee lounge type area with desserts... More

Made online reservation, no one called to confirm like the website said they would. The hostess asked us if we had be warned already that we would have to be out of the restaurant by 7:30 since we weren't staying for the live Jazz.... A pretty rude and rushed start to our meal. When the server dropped our meals, she... More

I booked my NYE here based on good reviews, and though I will say the music was great, the food and service were lacking. I paid $156.08 for two people to have 4 dried out oysters and a champagne toast each. The earlier seating received a three-course meal with mixed drinks for $60 pp. We were supposed to get a... More

went to Beju for Sunday brunch. The music was fantastic and it was a good thing to distract from the slow service. The eggs benedict was great. They used shaved ham on a biscuit for a wonderful twist on a classic. We will go back again, hopefully they will have more staff.

We went to the Beyu Caffe last night with the intention of having a quick meal before going to the Durham Arts Council for a program. We were promptly seated, but then it appeared service was slow. I need to interject now that we did not tell the server that we had any time constraint. Once we did let them... More
