“This place was a great find right in the heart of Matthews! Food was excellent! Spinach salad with a fancy mustard dressing was delicious. I had the Cod Provencial and the wife had Chicken Med! They had killer Lemon-Cello cake for dessert! Prices were a lot less than I am use to! Overall it was great and we will be back!”

“I have enjoyed the food every time I go to Cafe 157 and the waitstaff are always friendly. It's a great little friendly, neighborhood place. My favorite is the outdoor patio for lunch. I have never really been a fan of crab cakes until I had them there.”

“You have to love a place that has genuine people, servicing a great crowd, providing excellent food with a fantastic atmosphere! We will be back and we thank you for the warm hearted welcoming and good times! Thanks Cafe 157!”






From the Press

“Wow! Incredible! Everything was perfect. Nice, clean restaurant great food and service. Wife had tenderloins perfectly cooked. I had the shrimp and grits my favorite they were cooked differently and the best I had. We are from out of town. Go a little early and walk the street. A Mayberry feel.”


When we introduced Cafe 157, American Bistro in 2008 to downtown Matthews North Carolina we had a passion to establish something more than just another restaurant, we wanted to share an experience.

Our founder George Poriotis has created a wonderful collaboration of unique atmosphere and a creative blend of taste to accompany its guests experience. At Cafe 157 we provide an exquisite selection of menu items and sophisticated drinks. George also wanted to compliment his restaurant with the charm of a charismatic town and down town Matthews would be no better choice. 

A welcoming experience awaits you at Cafe 157. Whether you are celebrating an event, enjoying a special occasion or just simply want to delight in a casual evening please come join us today.
