Always good

Popped in for lunch and got the last available table - deservedly popular and relaxed café near Nottingham centre. Always a good range of veggie mains including vegan options and specials. All desserts are vegan and utterly scrumptious! Good value too.

Alley Cafe has been my go to spot for eating out for ages now and the food is always good, fast and well priced. Staff very helpful and friendly. Gets very busy so sometimes hard to get a table but fine in the summer as sitting outside is lovely. Good beers coffee juice smoothies tea etc depending on the occasion... More

Is hard to find it, but when you go in you feel like if you are at home (I am from a small village). I like to eat everything so veggie option was something that sound exciting for me. I went for the special of the day and was so good! See the picture...

We sort of stumbled across this place by accident around lunch time and, having recently started a vegetarian diet and feeling dismayed by the lack of vegetarian options elsewhere, decided to give it a go. We had to guess which door was the entrance (I think I sign could be a good investment here, haha) but, once inside, we found... More

Never had a bad meal here. Always excellent homemade fare. The falafel is great but so is everything else too! Nice selection of drinks on offer!

My husband and I aren't vegetarians but the freshly made food is excellent - very good quality and lovely friendly staff. A.C.B is quite small so it;s a good idea to arrive early to ensure a seat. Always popular and should win a food award in Nottingham .

Variety on the menu is superb. Lots of vegan options to choose from, and even veggie food can be made vegan. We had the tempeh burger and a vegan sausage sarnie, as well as tortillas with vegan cheese to share. Not many tables, but space at the bar to sit and eat.

I am definitely not a vegetarian and was somewhat dragged there by my granddaughter, but it turned out to be the best meal we had in Nottingham. I loved the character of the place and the wide selection of dishes. The bar service was fun. I would love to go back!

A halloumi salad was nice, with a particularly good dressing. Tofu balls were something a bit different, interesting but lacked a little flavour. There aren't many menu options which is understandable for a small place Vegan ice cream was something I would like to forget in a hurry If you want to read my full review and other restaurants in...

Been here a lot and it never disappoints. Food always freshly made and wholesome. Range of clientele - chatting, reading, writing, quite a little cultural bolt hole as its tucked away up the alley and its reputation spreads by word of mouth! Really recommend whether your'e a veggie or not.
