Cassie's Cafe: Grilled Cheese & Teddy Bear Pancakes

Posted By on Mon, Mar 4, 2013 at 10:09 AM

Cassies Cafe on Main Street in Roxbury

Sometimes my family and I like to go for a car ride to Roxbury just to see what's changing on Route 28, visit the sturdy wooden playground in Kirkside Park near the church in town, and look for a place to eat. I stopped by the Bread & Breakfast coffee shop in Arkville on the way there, but it was around 2pm, and they were closing. The coffee pots were empty. I will have to check out their waffles and omelets another day.

I've driven past Cassie's Cafe in Roxbury many times, I always get there after it closes around 3pm. Last Saturday we started out early, and enjoyed a late lunch there at 2:30pm. Lunch was yummy and inexpensive. The bill was $20 for the four of us.

The kids loved the grilled cheese sandwich, turkey chowder, and the teddy bear pancakes. My husband had the Hubbell sandwich (grilled cheese with 3 melted cheeses and grilled onions). He gave me a bite. It reminded me of the diner grilled cheeses I ate as a kid. I love an old-school grilled cheese sandwich that is good and buttery! The service was friendly. It wasn't crowded, but our server said that it does get busy there during lunch time. I believe that as this is the only restaurant in Roxbury, as far as I know. (If you know of another restaurant in Roxbury, please let me know!) Cassie's Cafe is a cute cozy place though, and we will definitely be coming back.
