Located in Rochester, New York’s artsy, energetic East End, our Little Theatre Café has been a downtown destination since 1994. We provide affordable dishes, desserts, specialty drinks, and wine and beer in a comfortable, casual atmosphere, with live music whenever the pandemic allows.
Music at the Little Café is made possible in part by a grant from the Drs. Dawn and Jacques Lipson to support performance, innovation and accessibility of the arts in the Rochester community, and thanks to the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
