Best cheese plate ever

I spent a big chunk of today driving around East Falls, Germantown, Mt. Airy and Chestnut Hill with my cousins, showing them different neighborhoods that they might be interested in living in. We ended up our tour near the bottom of Chestnut Hill and hungry for lunch found ourselves at Cafette. I had been there once before, about four years ago, for dinner and remembered being not so impressed.

However, lunch was another story, especially the cheese plate. It was the best cheese plate I’ve ever experienced. There were four artisanal cheeses, a goat brie with threads of blue cheese, a wonderful smoky cheddar, thin slices of crumbly blue cheese and a melting, sticky brie. They serve the cheeses with a mound of extra-thin sliced multi-grain bread that has been toasted and salted to resemble crackers. There is also a scattering of grapes in and around the cheese and bread. The six of us got to the bottom of it in record time, and had we not been sitting at a restaurant, my cousin Melissa might well have licked the platter on which it was served to get the final crumbs of cheese. It was that wonderful.
