Ample fresh food space will accommodate all your groceries, while the convertible drawer takes care of your drinks and meat. The LED light wall spans the back wall of the refrigerator, so every item is easy to find.

No need to wait as you fill your glass
Effortlessly fill containers with filtered water by simply pressing the Auto Fill button, which uses sensors to dispense the perfect amount every time.

Best refrigerator I’ve owned, so far.
Owned for 1 month when reviewed.
I spent a lot of time reviewing refrigerators before making a choice. I spent a lot of time at the store looking at features and options. I shopped other stores to be sure we were getting the best price, warranty, etc.
I ruled out a few brands based on consumer reports and ruled out others despite consumer reports - some brands rated high but the fact remains, parts are hard to get and some repair companies just don’t have the staff to service all brands. I avoided those brands despite being rated highly.
Cafe is new to our home but not GE - we have many GE appliances. Cafe is a nice step up from our Profile and this refrigerator has turned out to be amazing!
It has more space (thank goodness!). Better ways to organize all we put into a fridge (thank goodness!). And even though the inside is dark, the lighting and way I can see things in the fridge works! I personally love the look. Outside and inside.
So far, the ice output is great. Smaller ice cubes is interesting but so far, not an issue.
I love the center drawer, although haven’t used it for more than a “deli drawer” it’s nice to have options for how it can be used.
I really love how the bottom freezer has drawers. It’s made this style freezer so much more organized than our previous GE Profile, which was great.
So far, it’s easy to keep clean and the front fingerprint free. I love the side is black and that I can still put magnets there. The copper details are subtle but so cool.
My husband was concerned with my choice since this is so different from previous fridges - he says “I’m strangely happy.” Can’t ask for more than that from the man who will pay the bills for this purchase.
Best Buy was so great to work with. Delivery was seamless even after a slight delay due to an injury the service team experienced on another call (we had to wait a few days but they stayed on top of our schedule and prioritized). The care the delivery team provided assured us our home and fixtures were in good hands. The removal of our other fridge made the change so easy. The financing was also handled professionally and I love the 0%!
I would recommend this to a friend

Cafe GE Refrigerator with backsplash
Owned for 5 months when reviewed.
This is a beautiful looking refrigerator but looks can be deceiving. We wanted to get new appliances for our new kitchen remodel which we went with a white, gray and gold theme. We found this beautiful look set called Cafè by GE. It’s looks nicer in person then in these pictures. Let me get to the point:
Beautiful looking fridge
Texture is Pearl white
The inside LED back splash...Wow
Plenty of space
Easy to use
-The right dirt does not stay open.
-Handles are not designed to attach the doors properly, always have to tighten.
-Ice maker is from a cheap $500 fridge (Why!)
-The front water and ice display looks cheap
Overall you’re getting a $1500 GE refrigerator with $3000 of cosmetics options. Not unless you are buying a set or you want it only for the looks, you can get better option for that price with better technology.

Beautiful and functional!
Owned for 2 months when reviewed.
The beauty of my kitchen! It is quite spacious and the backlit made everything easy to find.
I got so many compliment and the matte white paint does not look cheap at all. The handle matches my delta champagne bronze faucet, everything is perfect.
Hi there! We're so glad you're enjoying your Cafe refrigerator! The matte white finish was an excellent choice and we're sure this model looks amazing in your kitchen. Thanks for sharing! -Sylvia@Cafe

It's a $4,000 pantry with no cold air.
Refrigerator NOT cooling after being plugged in for 24 hours. (Manual says give it a day to work and turn off ice maker to speed things up.)
Woke up this morning. Internal temperature in freezer is 69 degrees. Checked all door seals. Unplugged for 30 seconds to reset. Connected it to my wifi to verify status. By all appearances, the refrigerator is on. Control panel works. App says it's working and temps are set to 37 degrees for refrigerator and 0 degrees for freezer. But no cold air whatsoever.
Due to limited availability, no replacement is available.
If you want a $4,000 pantry that looks nice and dispenses water, spend your money on this. If you are looking for a refrigerator, avoid it.
Hi RobWithSpoiledFood, we're very sorry to see your new refrigerator didn't cool as it should. This is never the experience we want for our customers so we apologize for the inconvenience. We recommend taking advantage of your warranty and scheduling service with a certified GE Appliances technician that will be able to accurately diagnose and repair your appliance. You can do so by calling GE Appliance Service at 1-800-GECares (1-800-432-2737). We hope this helps and we want you to know we're wishing you the best. - Guy@Cafe

doors not leveling correctly on both sides
One sits higher than the other
New one came Scratched on corner and and front.
Hi there, we truly appreciate you choosing this beautiful 4-Door refrigerator for your home and taking the time to share your review! We’re very sorry to hear that you’ve had some trouble with leveling and that your unit was delivered with some damages. We know that this would be disappointing, and we’d love to offer you some direction in this. --- A properly leveled refrigerator is necessary for getting the doors perfectly even. If one of your French doors is sitting higher, we recommend that you first adjust the unit’s leveling legs and then adjust the hinges to get the doors to the perfect height. You can find step-by-step guidance on this on page 30 of your manual, seen here: https://files.bbystatic.com/3zSQBn1oyRdlYKRbveiFxg%3D%3D/6fc30579-c5a2-45a7-9595-e5e0d78f88d6.pdf. --- When buying from one of our retail partners, we always encourage you to examine your appliance and raise any issues at the time of delivery. If you haven’t yet, we recommend that you contact your dealer to share an update on your current situation so that they can get this worked out for you. We’re grateful to have you in our Café Appliances family and sincerely hope that this helps. Keep in touch! -Eliza@Café

Worth the money, worth the wait
Owned for 3 weeks when reviewed.
First off, hats off to Best Buy for their excellent service! Fast delivery and installation. This Café Refrigerator has been on our wish list since before we bought our home. The styling, the features, and the space are what prompted the 5 stars. We are remodeling our kitchen and with the darker theme this is a whole mood! Now all that’s left is to order the brushed bronze handle kit!
Absolutely LOVE this fridge. It’s amazing, spacious, back lit, and beautiful inside and out. If you’re looking for an upgrade this is it.
We saw some complaints about the smaller ice holder and small ice cubes but we haven’t noticed any flaws there yet. The app makes it super easy to keep track of temps, ice, and the water filter.
Hello, thank you for your review. We're glad to hear that you have been overall pleased with your new refrigerator and how it adds to your kitchen and home. We're always happy to help should you have questions about your appliances and accessories. Welcome to the Café Appliances Family! -Chris@Café

Beautiful addition to our kitchen
Owned for 1 month when reviewed.
What a beautiful addition to our kitchen. We bought an open box Cafe four door refrigerator through Best Buy Outlet and it was a very good deal. Normally I don't buy this type of product, especially when keeping something like this for many years, it just made very good financial sense, again as it was a great deal. It had few dents, scuffs & scratches, missing handles, missing hardware, missing manuals and some wear & tear. Missing some of the handles & a great price, gave me the financial opportunity to upgrade the handles to brushed bronze, very nice addition. Then I bought the needed hardware from GE online, items came in a couple of days, very good service. Also, at this time, there were none of this model refrigerators available for retail, in any of the stores. They were quoting two plus months to have back in stock, yikes! Our 21 year old GE's Refrigerators compressor was on its last legs, no way it would have lasted another week, it had just recently gotten very noisy, as the compressor was running almost all the time. This couldn't have worked out better for us. Thanks again to Best Buy for being there when we needed them again. Very nice people to do business with.
A:AnswerHi Sherri - We're excited to hear of your interest in Café! We’d recommend Black Magic from Sherwin Williams. It’s close, and picking a more matte paint finish vs the gloss or semi-gloss would help make it more consistent to Matte Black. Explore our Café Customizable Matte Black Professional Collection at www.cafeappliances.com/collections/customizable-professional - We'd love to have you in the family. Keep in touch at cafeappliances.com. Sue
Thank you for your interest in both of these beautiful refrigerator models. Yes, model CVE28DP4NW2 and CVE28DP2NS1 both have a fingerprint resistant exterior. Feel free to reach out again with any other questions you may have. -Avery
A:AnswerHi LisaC, thanks for reaching out! We'd be happy to help! If you're painting cabinets or the walls and matching a white paint color to Matte White, take a look at these two recommendations: -Sherwin Williams recommends SW 6231 Rock Candy as a match to Cafe Matte White -Designers have also used Benjamin Moore Oxford White or Chantilly Lace, or Omega's Pure White as white paint options. We hope that this helps! Stay safe. -Michael
