Not every scene can be high-stakes. I'm sure we all know this. If every sense were too high tension, there would be no ups and downs and we would leave the reader numb. Still, we want the low stakes scenes to be interesting and keep the reader hooked. I've been searching the web for articles about this but evening I find is pointed at raising the stakes and uses major climactic scenes as examples. I can't find much of anything on how to put together a compelling low stakes scene.
