Crowds float in and out of the café. Because of the reasonably-priced lunching, it is one of the local restaurants to attract students on lunch break from Wayne State University and Center for Creative Studies. The menu offers a wide variety of appetizers, snacks, soups, salads and sandwiches. Count up four alternatives to a burger -- turkey, tuna, lentil walnut or Garden - so vegetarians need not worry. Other notable sandwiches are the catfish sub special, artichoke melt or blackened chicken breast. The food selection is not the only proof of variety. The full bar serves a dozen different wines and 23 beers -- including a few microbrews from Motor City Brewing Company.
So it's no wonder Cass attracts good people. The lofty open space on two floors can accommodate an intimate-sized group or quite a larger-sized audience in the event of a performance. Either way, in this minimalist art deco environment, friends gather to enjoy a pleasant 'non-vibe' - one that is earmarking Detroit as a vibrant city and a great place to live.
