Right now it is 11:15pm. I'm chilling out in the lounge area in the back of the restaurant which is open until 2AM with last call at 1:45. They serve a late night menu until midnight with some serious cuisine. This is not your run of the mill bar food. They have duck, meatloaf, and other good fixins' rather than your typical hot wings and cheese sticks. The theme of Evening Star Cafe is comfort food cuisine with a twist. I'm having their meatloaf sandwich with a side salad that comes with it. The meatloaf is flavorful with red onions and mashed potatoes on a kaiser bun. It's an interesting combo. All very good tasting. The crowd here seems to be local and laid back. Maybe a little hipster even. It is a different vibe than the restaurant crowd. Bar seating, high tables and couch seating is all available in the small, eclectic space. Key eye things to check out: mason jar lighting, stars with light bulbs, the bowling trophy wall, classic beer cans on the ceiling, and 70s rock music. It feels like you're in the basement at a house party. They have the game on for those who care to pay attention on their two flat screens behind the bar. I like it. Very much my style and in my element.
