Reviews for Cafette


Cafette is a charming little spot with terrific sandwiches, soups and salads. Don't miss dessert: the rotating selection is filling and delicious.

Cute neighborhood restaurant – Excellent casual restaurant. We had the chicken cacciatore and the parmesan tilapia. Both were delicious, as was the red velvet cake. Our service was fine- we didn't have long waits and the waitress was polite. Definitely recommend it!

okay food, but the WORST service in the area – We tried and tried to love Cafette, but it's just not meant to be. We live very close, so we've gone a dozen times, sometimes taking friends from out of town, sometimes alone... always for brunch or lunch. The food is okay, although a bit pricey for what you get, but certainly nothing too exciting. The specials are uninspired and - here's the real problem - THE SERVICE IS HORRIBLE. I'm a former waitress, so I certainly understand busy brunch shifts, but when the place is half empty, I shouldn't have to wait fifteen minutes after I've been seated to be acknowledged by my server, or wait ten more for my coffee. And this isn't a one-time occurrence. It's gotten to the point where it's every time we go. The place must be having some sort of staffing crisis. So after the most recent experience of *horrible* service for mediocre food, we're not going back. Sorry, Cafette, but you've lost two customers.

great little neighborhood place – i've been to cafette twice; dined outside both times. the experience is a bit like having dinner in an outdoor garden among friendly neighbors - with fantastic food. if you're a beef eater, you must try the cowboy steak. it's delicious, and a hefty size portion. the specials are always fresh and tempting. it's a BYO, a bonus of the budget conscious. be prepared to walk, though - parking can be a challenge. on the bright side, strolling through chestnut hill is always pleasant. it's also a short walk from the 23 bus or r7.

Unbelievable food--if you can find it! – I have lived in Chestnut Hill for years and never knew this little place existed. All those years of baseball right across the street at Water Tower--and I never came in! My girlfriends and I had the most delicious meal here--I'm definitely dragging my husband in next.
