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

This is one of the best places to eat in Long Beach California. It's a small place but very quaint. Everything is great on the menu the hardest thing is deciciding on what you want because like I said everything is yummy here the waiters are great and the chiefs are spectacular. 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

We stopped in today for a late lunch and the food was outstanding! They offer a great variety here which made it a little tough to decide but I chose the veggie sandwich and it had the perfect variety of veggies with great flavor. The pasta salad that was served with it was excellent as well.

I read all the wonderful reviews about this restaurant and was excited to have the chance to finally try it when my family and I went to Long Beach. It was easy to find via GPS it is nestled among a bunch of residential places. What none of the reviews mentioned is how or where they found parking. We went... More

When At Last first opened, it was in a very small space. Everyone was raving about this new restaurant walking distance from home with a world class chef. Every time we tried to go, the place was full and we couldn't get in. They expanded by doubling their size taking over a place next door and it was still very... More
