Although it was too crowded and we still waited twenty minutes with reservations, the food was worth the wait.

Delicious cajun fusion menu. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Parking was the issue. There are 2 very small parking sections behind the restaurant and some street parking.

Another fantastic meal at High Street! Food is delicious, cocktails are strong, and the prices are great. The veggie flatbread was amazing, and the lobster ravioli and bananas foster were, as always, to die for. My favorite restaurant in West Chester!

Waited about 25 minutes past our reservation time but that can’t really be controlled by the restaurant. The servers were really friendly. The food was incredible with the perfect amount of spice. I’d highly recommend going.

Fantastic food! Great service! Fun ambience. Some years ago I frequented a distant Cajun restaurant with fantastic fare but it closed. I was pleased to learn that High Street Caffé’s chef worked there and brought over my favorite Voodoo Crawfish dish! Can’t wait to return because I plan to try everything on the menu... and then start over!

Great Cajun food! The gumbo is a must-have. The only slightly weak part of the meal was my wife’s somewhat bland spinach/pecan salad with strawberry dressing. Main courses were wonderful! She had the crab cakes and loved them. These folks know how to do Cajun...enjoy!

The food was great -- a unique menu. Fairly priced. Our server (Julie) was awesome. It's a small place so seating is a little tight. So it's not ideal for large groups. Would definitely go back.

This was a spur of the moment meal on Saturday night. Due to a power failure, we decided to see if we could get into the restaurant and there was an opening at 5:45. The jambalaya and the blackened chicken, shrimp, and scallops were both very tasty. My husband and I did notice a little bit of a taste difference. Usually the jambalaya is spicier and the presentation of his plate was a little different. Then we learned that there is a new chef. That could be the reason. We learned this when I wanted to King Colossal Chipwhich. I was bummed that it wasn't on the menu anymore. I had to settle for the bananas foster, which was still good; just not what I was wanting. All the servers were great. Our main server was Rob but we had a girl helping out, who had short brown wavy hair.

We ordered Jambalaya with Chicken and Etouffee with scallops, crawfish and shrimp. Both were very tasty but we were partial to the Etouffee. It was great to have a “half” portion as a choice so we could experiment. Next time we’ll order the full portion.
This was our third time at High Street and we haven’t been disappointed.
