Loved This LItte Place

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.

Fantastic food, cheap cocktails and such an awesome variety on the menu! They can cater for any diet (vegetarian/vegan/gluten-free) The staff are super friendly and helpful and I can't wait to go back there! Truly a great little hidden gem.

I would recommend this place for lunch for veggies and non-veggies alike. They really know how to produce a tasty veggie menu which could convert even the most enthusiastic meat lovers! The restaurant has quite a 'grungy' feel to it but this suits the ambience. The staff were lovely and very happy to make recommendations and welcome veggie restaurant Virgins... More

I've been here for lunch on quit a few occasions, but this was a first for an evening meal and drink. Meals are served till 9.30, then light bites till midnight. Great selection of drinks too, from Lassis, made the way you want, through to a good selection of draught / bottled beers and wines. Nice crowd on a Saturday... More

The only gripe and it is not a major one is that it opens at 11am and if you are visiting the city for one night it is a late opening time if you wish to sample the breakfast, 10am would make more sense and considering that it was so busy when it did open that it was standing room... More

We came here for breakfast as park of a mini break in Nottingham, it appeared to be recommended as one of the best breakfasts on the Nottingham website so we both went for the veggie breakfast with a cup of redbush tea for me and a Soya Milk Latte for my partner. The ambiance was a bit spit and sawdust... More

Alley Cafe serve vegetarian and vegan food. The staff are friendly, the atmosphere is relaxed and the food is excellent value for money. The dishes are produced to a very high standard and prepared fresh on the premises. They have something different every day on their specials menu and I always leave this restaurant happy!

As a vegetarian, found the menu very exciting. Although the meal wasn't as tasty as expected overall, one of the three dishes ordered was excellent. Great beers, beautiful cozy atmosphere, and helpful waitstaff. Recommended.
