Support Our Cass Cafe Servers, Cooks & Bartenders

Our Cass Cafe cooks, bar tenders, dishwashers,  hosts, and servers are out of work indefinitely and as we all know, it is not their fault. 

In response to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's emergency order, Cass Cafe has suspended its dine-in service.
Carry-out hours are being implemented beginning Tuesday March 17, 2020. We continue to maintain all sanitation precautions as prescribed by the health department and The World Health Organization.

“It has been a struggle,” says Cass Cafe owner Chuck Roy. “It's very difficult to call 30
staff members and tell them that they've temporarily lost their jobs, but it's a small price to pay because my priority is to keep everyone healthy.”

Cass Cafe is a full bar, restaurant, and art gallery. It has been family owned
and operated since it opened its doors 26 years ago.
Located at 4620 Cass Avenue in the heart of the Cass Corridor; the majority of its clientele comes from Wayne State University's students, staff, and faculty, as well as Hillberry Theater and other surrounding entertainment venues.
