We really enjoyed our meal - we ordered fish, mac/cheese, lasagna, corn chowder, french onion soup, calamari. Everything was either good or really good. We had 2 bottles of wine - at $30 per bottle - it made sense for 3 people to share. Wine was good to Malbec. The interior of the restaurant is in need of some serious... More

The Last Cafe is a small neighborhood restaurant with inside and outside dinning. The outside is a nice place between the sidewalk and the curb with a fence and planter alongside the street. The servers were friendly and tried however both servers pet the dogs on the outside dog friendly patio. To my knowledge they did not wash their hands... More

I ordered a bunch of meals for take out over the phone and these guys did awesome! I realize it probably isn't something they normally do but everything went great. They are not a franchise cafe and I was appreciative of how accommodating they were.

Long time ago, saw this place on Diners, Drive-ins & Dives and said we gotta go. Took several years, in fact had forgotten about it. But then I got a Groupon offer and so we finally made it. There were good , bad & ugly points about the At Last Café. Ugly: parking. Go early afternoon to get parking. We... More

This eatery really works as a locals cafe/diner, but is not a destination restaurant. Parking is a huge problem, but that is not their fault. The menu is basic and the food is good and VERY fairly priced. Blackboard items can be interesting. Entrees seem to all be presented the same. Same smashed potatoes, same vegetable medley, different protein on... More

Sangria is great and tasty. As well as... More

These friendly and accomodating folks actually worked out a deal to extend outdoor dining to the public sidewalk. On the street parking in an an apartment rich environment is the only downside. But its well worth the walk and rare to find delicous chef-prepared specialties in a local cafe. Yesterday, two of us had Lasagna and two the hot brie... More

Yes, parking is challenging, but from my experience it is well worth it. Sit inside or out the classical american menu is scrumptious, the service is great and please make a reservation
