Went to the Alley cafe in Nottingham with my boyfriend and 2 friends.. all of us are vegan and we were pleasantly surprised to find that most things were vegan or could be made vegan on request. I had a coconut and almond smoothie, a hemp burger and wedges and a raspberry cheesecake for dessert. Everything was full of flavour... More

Been going to the Alley Cafe regularly for a number of years, though i haven't lived in Notts for 2 years. Always excellent food and a great atmosphere. I'm not a vegetarian but I still enjoy the food enormously and would highly recommend it to anybody. can be tricky to find a table, especially in the winter when there's no... More

I was having a good meal here until we noticed they use rat poison. Such a shame. I asked the guy about this (who appeared to be the owner), but he said nothing that made me feel any better. Being an animal-lover, I won't be coming back.

You must visit this cafe, the food is delicious freshly prepared and so nice. I love eating here the staff are lovely and it has a very chilled out atmosphere it is a bit out of the way but well worth a visit. I had a burger and wedges on my last visit and it was yummy

I'm a vegetarian and my family are vegans, so it can be extremely hard to find somewhere that caters for us, and to a high standard. Alley cafe is a delightful gem, I love it! We celebrated my sister's birthday in here and all thoroughly enjoyed the food. We'll be back.

For a large city Nottingham is not blessed with a maze of options for veggies and vegans, the Alley Café registers a small beacon of hope. My wife and I went for lunch . We both had burgers with home made chips and salad and could easily have plumped for anything else on the menu or specials board. We were... More

It's a little hidden, but not far from the main square. Friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The food is delicious and portions are generous. We had Italian antipasti platter and some tofu balls. Both really nice. Organic cider and lager (Freedom) available. Reasonably priced.
