Located in Rochester, New York’s artsy, energetic East End, our Little Theatre Café is located in our back theatre complex. With seating for 70, live music five nights a week, and a seasonal American cuisine menu, we’ve been a downtown destination since 1994. We provide affordable dishes, desserts, specialty drinks, and wine and beer in a comfortable, casual atmosphere. Free parking is available in our lot.

In addition, our café is a sought-after location for special events day or night! We also host special programs and collaborations. We hope you will join us soon for a pre-show dinner, an after film coffee, a glass of wine, or a satisfying dessert!

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.

Music in The Little Cafe is also made possible with support from the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA), along with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
