We went to brunch on Sunday and had a good time. The Beyu is a lovely place with great staff. The jazz was a nice touch and the food and staff were wonderful. Everything was laid back with no rushing you out the door. The only thing, sadly, is the beignets; while they had a great flavor, the texture and plating was all wrong. My husband was born and raised in NOLA and the beignets' texture should be light and "puffy" not heavy and bread-like. They should be covered with powdered sugar. While I would definitely go back I won't be eating beignets.

Super for mid-priced lunch that is not your typical meal. Good daily specials. Prepared fresh. Served quickly.

The Beyu is one of Durham's treasures. You can get a great meal and enjoy live jazz if that is what you enjoy. You can also enjoy the daytime atmosphere enjoying coffee and working/reading in a relaxing atmosphere.

The staff is always welcoming, internet free, brunch very good, would recommend for a one on one conversation or up to six people, but the tables favor smaller groups. Excellent coffee, nice coffee and bar area, desserts always look amazing. Evening offers jazz on certain nights, and lively entertainment. Great local Durham spot.

A few of us went to Beyu for cocktails after our rehearsal dinner and it was wonderful. They had an amazing Jazz combo performing that topped off the evening.
