We stumbled across this established gem in Chestnut Hill just off of the Avenue after seeing a review in a local advertisement. Located in a residential area close to heart of Chestnut Hill, this restaurant combines the quality of food and service that one would expect at an upscale restaurant in center city with the charm and warmth of a...

We went for desserts, and they were very accommodating. The place is not attracive, but the deserts were very good. Prices were reasonable. We ate inside bacause of the weather, but it looked nice on the patio.

The food is innovative and delectable. We visited twice in the summer and fell in love with the outdoor seating. My last visit was October and I picked a bad day to dine al fresco so inside it was! 3 times and I've raved to friends about this place which to most of us is. 40 minute drive. All have... More

Nice change of pace place in a neighborhood setting. Had dinner on the patio + the casual atmosphere with attractive lighting was very relaxing. Food was good but not outstanding. Crab cakes were very spicy but the mahi mahi was very good. Prices are very reasonable. I wouldn't care to dine inside as the dining room is basically in the... More

I went to Cafette with friends a few months ago and wrote a review about our great experience (the review is still below and it was really great-service, food, everything!). I returned to Cafette this past weekend with friends after bragging about the restaurant and was sorely disappointed. The service was still very good but the food was not at... More

I had a great experience while at the restaurant. I thought the service and food was excellent. However, when I returned home, I started vomiting. I will never return to this restaurant.

I love when you are walking in a new area and just happen to walk into a new experience that is positive. While in the Chestnut Hill area we stopped in for lunch and found the overall experience to be very positive. Cafette is a charming, small (!!), clean little restaurant located off the main drag of Chestnut Hill. It... More

Friends and I weren't able to get into another brunch spot in Chestnut Hill so we went to Cafette and they welcomed us right in! The building from the outside does not capture the charm of indoors (and it looks like outdoor patio seating in warmer weather!). The surroundings were airy and bright, cute tables and decorations. We were pleased... More

This is a quaint little restaurant, located away from the main hustle and bustle of Chestnut Hill. I've been here for brunch, lunch and dinner. Although it is a tad bit overpriced, I think that the food here is very good. The chefs care about what is served and how it is served. The service is varied; although some are... More
