Small, North Arlington neighborhood cafe/coffee shop with an unusual speciality--New Zealand style meat pies and other lamb dishes. Good food--we had a croque madame (no mornay sauce) and veggie pie--served with interesting sides of slaw and chutney. Reasonably priced. Serving very good New Zealand wines. The service is the cafe's achilles heel. Mostly distracted teenagers who weren't able to provide the basics (utensils, napkins, salt and pepper) when seating customers.
The food is good enough for a return trip, but be ready to muster extra patience with the service.
Parking directly in front and behind of the cafe.

This is a terrific neighborhood spot with a touch of New Zealand. They serve the best BLT in town -- with guacamole and on sourdough bread. Lunchtime is always busy but the wait staff stays on top of it all and makes sure everyone gets taken care of.

I will forever be grateful to Cassatt's for introducing me to the Flat White, strong coffee with a thick layer of creaminess on top, better than the ubiquitous cappuccino. Cassatts is the type of quirky neighborhood place that is creative and delicious, with something a little different. Slightly pricey, but not ridiculously so, and they run a lot of specials. They also have live music sometimes (check the web site). The lamb, if you like lamb, is tender and flavorful. The savory pies, and the amazing pavlova dessert (meringue, fruit, whipped cream, how can you go wrong with that combination?) are real treats. The name is confusing as you would suspect a French cafe, but the food brings the flavors of New Zealand to Arlington.

Saturday Brunch was a major disappointment. Service: basically non-existent; server and hostess were huddled by coffee machine with backs to the cafe busy working the Post Crossword puzzle and not watching the door or tables. Coffee: latte and capp were served cold because they sat while the French press was brewing. Pastry Basket: stale muffins were served (would not have ordered if the server had told us they were out of usual croissants / pastries). Food: French toast was burnt; poached eggs were served hard (not runny); toast was cold and hard (thought I'd break a tooth). Just a really bad experience.

Today I had the spinach and feta fritatta; in the past I've had the burger with egg, the beet salad, probably about half the menu. Even when there's a wait, it's always well worth it. Service is good and attentive.
