This is a gem of a Downtown Durham eatery. I recently visited this restaurant and was thoroughly impressed with the food quality and options. I'm a foodie and found the location's shrimp and grits entree to be the best presentation of the concept in comparison to other places I've tried with similar offerings. The Baddie Burger is also good. The varied list of flavored and chocolate-infused lattes and espressos is divine.
I also enjoyed the friendliness and professionalism of the manager and most of the location's wait staff. The servers are patient and personable even with newbies who aren't familiar with the eatery's interior table seating areas and menu items. Customers are allowed time to enjoy the eatery's ambiance without feeling unnecessarily rushed or made to leave. This customer service approach made it easy for me to want to leave the serving staff a generous tip.
I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a nice breakfast/lunch/afternoon hangout option downtown. Just make sure to check the open hours before heading to the location. I know more than a few people who have had their hearts broken when they raced to the restaurant only to find it "Closed."

We had a really scrummy breakfast at Beyu Cafe!! I had the Chicken and Toast and my husband had the Breakfast Burrito; both were really tasty and items we’d order again!! A surprise treat that we also got was Mexican Coffee which was coffee with cinnamon, nutmeg and chocolate. It was delicious too. It’s also available as a latte.
The servers were really friendly and they worked as a team to make sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our meal. I really like this in a restaurant.
We will definitely be back to this restaurant the next time we’re in Durham.
The other things I’d like to mention about this restaurant in case it’s important to someone reading this review is that we thought the music was a bit too loud and this is not a restaurant we’d come to if we were in a hurry. Food service seemed to be consistent with items being made to order.

Cool brunch spot in Durham. Very long wait when I came in on a Saturday morning, about an hour, but it evened out because the bacon egg and cheese sandwich, fresh fruit, home fries, and Oprah mocha were all delicious. Service was good, all staff was very polite. Vibe was also great and I loved the music that they played.

It don’t matter if you live in NC or in Cali! You better make sure to come here and when you do ask for JAZZY or Jazz! You won’t be disappointed! I got the chicken wings (sweet and spicy sauce) and the turtle mocha extra sweet! So good y’all I ate everything to the bone okay!

This is by far the best cafe I’ve been too. Food 10/10. I had the Avocado Toast with egg and it was delicious and light yet filling. The Oprah Mocha was the perfect amount of sweet. Cannot recommend this place more.

On a scale from 1 to 5....I'll give this place a 4. Great service and food. The grits were super smooth. The sausage and shrimp where cooked and seasoned just right. The French toast and chicken wings where very tasty as well. Will definitely come back if I'm in the area.

Attended a show here the other day for "Lesha" - we were encouraged to arrive at 6 and show would start @ 7PM - the doors were locked so not sure when they finally opened up for guests so i don’t recommend arriving early. Found this event through eventbrite it was $20 Seating / $10 Standing. They had a great show and loved the shrimp & grits, I’m not a big drinker but i tried one of their cocktails and it was fairly strong. Show was over exactly at 8pm due to another show at 9pm so make sure you finish your food and drinks by then. Overall was 8/10 experience. LESHA WAS AMAZING SUCH A BEAUTIFUL VOICE - would love to see her perform again.
