I've lived in the area for over 10 yeas and I am always looking for restaurants that offer good food made with fresh ingredients and also has a few vegetarian options. During my one and only visit, the brunch service was horrible. The other diners had bread and water, we were never given either. I ordered the pancakes and there were only two pancakes in the order but for $10 I expeced more than 2 pancakes. The pancakes were paper thin (like crepes) and they taste as though an ingredient was missing, plus they were very light in color which suggest poor preperation and cooking. I ended up ordering a second entree, a sausage and egg dish that was tasty and should have been my first choice. I ordered a beverage and since neither it nor the water I requested were delivered, I was happy to have had a bottle of water in my purse. The place has potential, but when it comes to food, I do not give second chances to make first impressions. Also, I can not excuse poor customer service.

We really like Cafette and go all of the time -- good menu, good food, good atmosphere. We were disappointed for Sunday brunch -- we asked for water without lemon and they brought water with lemon, we asked for decaf and they brought regular, they forgot the fruit and the home fries and they didn't even tell us the specials.

This is a favorite of ours, good for a family outing or a tete-a-tete. The food is consistently great, simple but well-prepared and plentiful, with very fresh ingredients and interesting flavors. This is a casual place, and small. If you look at the casual atmosphere, it seems a little pricey. But the quality of the food makes it a great value. We eat low on the menu for family meals, high on the menu for special occasions, and always love it.

This is a nice little cafe. Very expensive though. Menu changes very often so don't get your heart set on something. Good experience.

As a vegetarian plagued by a dislike of Tofu, I finally found a place that makes tofu edible. Cafette's Thai Style noodles with Tofu is a variation on Pad Thai but with "Crispy", yes I said crispy tofu squares. The outdoor dining area is quet and comfortable. The service is attentive and the menu is varied and well prepared. This BYOB is a stand out even if its buried away in a side street away from the main drag of Chestnut Hill.
