Alley cafe bar is a little hidden, which is a shame as they make such great food. They do a great job of dispelling the myth that vegan food is bland and boring, defiantly visit for a meal even if your not a vegetarian / vegan.

Great vegan food. So glad to have somewhere like this in my town. The food here could turn any meat eater vegan! As well as amazing food and drinks, the staff were also very friendly welcoming!

It isn't often you come across all vegetarian/vegan restaurants and cafes so this little gem is fabulous. I like dining in independent cafes and this little one suits its name entirely, being situated down an alley in Nottingham. The cafe isn't huge but had space when me and my friend walked in for lunch one Tuesday lunch time. The food... More

Visited this place a few times now and literally cannot fault it. I am vegan myself but it's irrelevant! This food would be very high quality to any sort of customer. The service is always very upbeat and polite, no wonder it's always so busy!

We went to the Alley Cafe Bar for our anniversary. My husband had found it whilst looking for a vegetarian restaurant in the area. As the name suggests you access the cafe via an alleyway, through a doorway and then up some stairs. It is quite small and the tables are arranged along the edge of the bar. You order... More
