We visited on Noel night, so the place was probably busier than usual. The waitstaff was excellent, but to wait 45 minutes after soup for our dinner was too long. The lentil soup was fresh and flavorful, whereas the walnut bean burger was mushy.

Have been there for business lunches and evening hanging out. Local folks. University and area business crowd type of place. Good service, friendly atmosphere.

If you're a vegetarian, I'm not, get the lentil burger. Best I've ever had and is one of my favorites on the menu.

I was taken to the Cass by friends for dinner before a concert at the Detroit Symphony. I was apprehensive because the Cass Cafe looks on the interior like a typical breakfast cafe which dot the American landscape. I was happily surprised the limited menu and wine list is quite good.

The Cass is a fine spot to meet for a drink and have some decent food. They aren't amazing, but they're fine. The Café Reuben is pretty edible. Burgers are usually overcooked for my liking (no matter how you order it). Good staff, though, for sure.

This place has a wide variety of dishes to chose, from calamari salad to curry chicken pasta to a black bean burger. Everything that I have tried has been absolutely delicious, and I have always had great service. I love going to this place for lunch, and they have great vegetarian options.

I came here for lunch. There were a lot of options on the menu. Everyone in my group enjoyed their food. There is a small area to park in the back, which is convenient.

Eat where the locals eat! Great veggie burrito. Located in the vibrant Cass Corridor. Eat there and shop in boutiques down the street.

Cass Café is a great place to eat before or after the Detroit Symphony. The food is always great as is the service. Love the ever changing art on the walls
