Can't wait to go again!

This was hubby & my second visit. Took the family this time. We sat outside in the late afternoon. Except for a few flies and the need for a little more coverage from our patio umbrella, we were quite comfortable. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and chatted with people at the next table... read more

A small cafe tucked into a local neighborhood. Easy to get to. When the 22 ends just keep going west. Parking can be a bit tough. Indoor and patio seating. Great sandwiches. Excellent crispy fries. The Thai salad has a lime dressing with just a bit of spice. Nothing fancy, just good food in a very pleasant setting with good,... More

I've had At Last Cafe on my try list for a while now. Finally, we had the chance to have lunch. Their regular, printed menu has quite a few choices, but the handwritten board has way more and everything was available for lunch. We sat outside and started with the Avocado Fries and a 1/2 order of Mac & Cheese.... More

At last, we visited At Last Cafe. It's not only a great neighbor restaurant. It's also a restaurant for your friends, family, visitors and strangers that you meet as you walk to the restaurant. The food is amazing. Everything is fresh and the flavors are amazing. You can tell that the staff loves the restaurant by their smiles and attitudes.

Twice we have been to Long Beach and twice we have made this our first stop. Got to beat those crowds. High quality comfort food a low prices. We have tried the items featured on Triple D and were not disappointed. Service is top notch and friendly and they don't skimp on the vegetables which is nice when you go... More

We discovered this place several years ago after it was featured on Diners Drive Ins and Dives. At the time it was a tiny tiny little place. It has since expanded but still retains it's intimate charm. The food is amazing, the service impeccable and the ambience relaxed and casual. We do Thanksgiving here most years in addition to eating... More

All time favorite place to eat. They are ok about gluten free, they would get one more star if they had a menu dedicated to that and were clearer about what allergens are in their dishes. They are good about asking the chef and finding out things for you.

It was love at first bite for me. Was so excited when they opened up in my neighborhood and I could walk there. They have expanded since the early days of eating in a tiny space. But the quality remains. The menu doesn't get stagnant and the creations are adventurous without being ridiculous. My personal favorites being the Brick Chicken,... More

The food at this restaurant is well worth sampling. We had lunch in the outdoor area and had to wait for a table which is always a good sign. We were visiting the area but most of the customers seemed to be local.

It's a little out of the way local spot with very good food. As usual, in Long Beach, parking can be challenging. I've been here a few times over the last year. had a kind of bad experience with some under-cooked pork and they appeared to nuke the chops which made them dry. I would have thought they would have... More
