After looking at their Instagram, I was dying to go. 10x better than the pictures. Everything.

We really enjoyed La Cafette. We shared the meat and cheese board and it was unusually delicious, particularly well chosen cheeses. Then I had the steak with blue cheese sauce special and DH had the lamb shank. Both really good but the steak won. They had a very friendly wine list and we found a nice red at a good price. I had profiteroles for desert, DH had cheesecake. Win win, always a good conclusion!

I had my birthday brunch at La Cafette and it was fantastic! The space is small but they were incredibly accommodating for our large group, and even put a candle in our Profiteroles and put on 'happy birthday' music as they brought it out. The brunch cocktails were excellent, and the smoked salmon tartine was fresh and delicious. I will be back!

Went for my wife's birthday. The wine was fantastic and the food was even better. We had the rotisserie de jour, which was chicken. Probably the best chicken we've had.

Great addition to the neighborhood!! The restaurant is cozy with cool design. The food was simple but very, very good! I’ve lived in France for a few years and their escargots are as good as they can be. I had the burger which is probably one of the best I’ve ever had in the city. The burger comes with a slice of soft cheese (Camembert) which really makes it amazing. I have no words for the profiteroles with Nutella ... out of this world. Cherry on the cake, our sever was so funny and charming....All this for a very decent price, will be back for sure!!

I wasn't sure what to expect for a small place to accommodate 8 people for brunch since I had never been, but it ended up being wonderful! The service was great, we didn't feel rushed, and the staff was friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and the coffee was good. Will definitely be coming back!
