Myself & friends have visited this venue numerous times at the previous & current location. Yet my latest visit was again extremely disappointing. Let's start with the positives: new, improved menu selections & physical menus; continued superbly diverse musicians performing and much improved acoustics in new location. Now the ongoing negatives: the preparation & flavors of the dishes continue to... More

My wife and I went to Beyu before dinner in Durham to kill some time and get some work done. When we walked in they asked if we were in a hurry or going to stay awhile and we said we were staying. They told us to have a seat and said someone would be over shortly. Waitress dropped off... More

This hip little cafe is right around the block from the Carolina Theatre and it's our go-to place whenever we see a concert. If we're in a rush, we let the waiter know straight away and we're in and out in a jiff. But it's much better to get there early so you can relax and savor entree-to-dessert put together... More

I've met friends/colleagues here for day meetings but also enjoy hearing friends perform in the evenings. I have enjoyed most meals but definitely remember the lovely beignets I ordered with my summer camp group. Love that Beyu is suitable for diverse crowds. Live music is a nice way to wind down.

I've been here many times, and always had a good experience. But today I had the Shrimp and Grits, and it was one of the tastiest meals I've ever had. The shrimp were plump, the sausage spiced perfectly, the cheese, oh the cheese. I could write a love song to the cheese. But I won't, because that's too personal.

Located in downtown Durham where a thriving foodie culture has made standing out difficult, the Beyu Caffe has risen to the occasion with a varied menu, great food, and relaxed atmosphere. Located practically next door to the always packed Dame's Chicken and Waffles, the Beyu was our destination on a recent Sunday morning. We were seated quickly by pleasant staff... More

If you are in downtown Durham and looking for a nice spot to relax, grab a cup of something to drink and enjoy some quiet personal time or enjoy chatting with friends, this is your spot. The environment and location couldn't be better and the staff couldn't be friendlier.

My fiancé and I came here for a quick lunch in between errands. We both ordered salads which were pretty good. The staff seemed to be very preoccupied with talking amongst themselves, not attending to tables well, and more concerned with their own conversations vs. serving. Unfortunately, with this kind of customer service, they will have few people return for... More
