This is a cute cafe in the heart of Durham. We stopped in for an afternoon break and had scones with clotted, jam and tea.

Respite lives up to its name as a good little hideaway right on Duke Street near a renovated area where former tobacco warehouses became loft housing and commercial space. It is an inviting space with friendly staff and several seating areas to suit your mood. The artwork is local and given there is a separate small room with a dining table that overlooks the street, it is a good spot to get some work done (thanks to wifi). The cappuccino is made perfectly and each trip it has been consistent - nice and frothy. Pastries choices look tempting but I manage to resist. Be mindful that Duke Street is one-way at that point and it's on the left - so pull up and parallel park right out front.

That's all we had, and on the run, too, so I cannot rate the pastries but the cappuccino was made with great care. Not too much milk, excellent, richly flavored coffee.
