I Give this four stars based on overall experience. Food is quite average, and played out. Same main menu for quite ahwile with blending flavors that are al missing that extra touch to take it to the next level. What makes me give out the rare Dub C 4 dots, 1 above average, is the overall atmosphere, good drinks, and... More

My husband and I had dinner at High Street Caffe last night. The food was terrific, from the bread, artichoke appetizer and cajun entrees. The service was attentive but not overbearing. The place has a really nice, low key, but funky ambiance. Located in the heart of West Chester, it is easy walk around to window shop. The only negative... More

You simply cannot beat the drinks, food and prices. We have never had a bad meal. My husband and I will forgo the fancier restaurants for this gem. Always delicious!

I've eaten here several times. It has always been a good experience. This is one of the places that make you forget we are rapidly becoming a country of big box stores and chain restaurants.

I know, cheesy title for review. But the food was excellent. The service was excellent. The price was reasonable. I had the Jambalaya, my wife had some sort of chicken, shrimp and rice with bourbon sauce dish. We split the cajun popcorn (crawfish). My meal was full of shrimp and crawdads and andouille sausage (they did not skimp at all).... More

This place never disappoints. The food is delicious. If you are in the Philadelphia or Wilmington area, this place is worth the trip. The food, service, and atmosphere are outstanding. Sometimes, it's difficult to find parking right near the restaurant, but there is a parking garage two blocks away. Just awesome.

This is one of the best kept secrets in West Chester. Great Cajun food, atmosphere and staff. I really enjoy happy hour as it is small, less crowded and allows for conversations with everyone.

Four adults when for Mother's day. The place was quite busy. Service was a bit slow - refills of wine and beer took longer than they should (and because of the profit margin on alcohol for a restaurant should be refilled immediately). The gumbo was too thick or had cooked down too much. The calamari appetizer was the best part... More
