CAET-Pimento Cheese Toast

Located in the historic Fondren District, Caet Wine Bar features a menu ideal for an upscale, yet casual dining experience, along with a full bar that features over 30 by-the-glass fine wines. Caet also specializes in snacks and small plates, which are the perfect size for sharing or keeping to yourself. Whether you’re in the mood for a casual dinner or a snack during happy hour, Caet Wine Bar is perfect for any occasion or event.

Being that Caet is a wine bar, it’s unlike any of the other restaurants in the Fondren area. It’s the only wine bar in the neighborhood, and that really sets Caet apart from the other local restaurants. Though Caet is considered a wine bar, you can expect so much more than wine and cocktails. The small plates are unique and delicious, and there’s also a dinner menu available, too.

Among the snacks and small plates, guests can choose from oysters, short ribs, kung pao shrimp, lamb sliders, and lump crab cakes. These small plate items are perfect for a snack for yourself or an appetizer before dinner. The dinner menu includes a wide variety of upscale dishes, such as Asian BBQ glazed duck breast, redfish, scallops, shrimp and grits, and a porterhouse steak. Vegetarian options are also available, such as Cauliflower Saganaki. Much like other area restaurants, several of the products at Caet are locally sourced, and fresh produce is used as much as possible.

The drink menu at Caet includes wines by the half and full-glass portions, as well as signature cocktails and a full whiskey menu. Mississippi craft beers can be found on tap, and domestic and imports are by the bottle.

If you’re looking for a new spot to enjoy happy hour, Caet offers a special happy hour menu that’s available Monday through Thursday from 4 to 6 p.m. Munch on Bourbon Maple Glazed Wings or Pimento Cheese Toast while sipping on a glass of wine or a specialty cocktail. It’s the perfect spot to sit on the patio and enjoy a couple drinks after a long day at work.

Caet Wine Bar has it all, and there’s sure to be something for everyone on the unique menus. Next time you want a glass of wine in a casual space, head to Duling Avenue and give Caet a visit. During the warmer months, be sure to take advantage of the patio dining area that looks out into the Fondren neighborhood. To view full menus and drink selections, visit
