Went to Nottingham with my Vegan friend. Took a while to find it as it is hidden down an alley way! But once there it's a cute little world. Food was AMAZING! My friend said it was best vegan pizza he had ever had. Staff were friendly, it was really clean. Only down side is the size of the place.... More

A really charming place in a fun setting. The food was incredible and I couldn't recommend it enough. The pizzas and nachos were exquisite! Only difficulty is the size of the place. I wish it were bigger!

I became vegan a few weeks ago and as a consequence I have been exploring places to eat out. I'd been advised to try the Alley Cafe and I wasn't disappointed. The service was friendly and I didn't have to wait long for my food. The food was lovely, all cooked from fresh and locally sourced. The cafe's Eco credentials... More

This adorable cafe has an amazing selection of veggie and vegan options, but can be enjoyed by anyone. All the alcohol is also vegan, which is fantastic! Service can be slow due to the size of the place, and if there is a group of you, you're better off booking a table as there are not many. However, this adds... More

Being vegetarian its always a nice change to be able to choose anything on the menu! This was our first visit and we weren't disappointed. Cafe is very small, (maybe seats 20 or so) so could get quite cosy! It was quiet during our midweek visit which was nice. Nice lady serving, friendly but not too intrusive. Food was delicious...

Came in for a late lunch with my daughter, had the most fabulous halloumi salad, it was lovely and fresh, washed down with a fabulous iced coffee. An authentic establishment that meets all expectations. Will be returning soon.

After a long day's work we called in for a coffee and cake - both of which were fresh and delicious. The size of the portions were extra generous and the types of cakes available were quite unusual - not your ordinary muffin or cookie. Service was excellent and we were made to feel relaxed. We'll be calling again

Gorgeous and tucked out of the bustle of town, fabulous waitress with glam red lippy, she was great fun! Not a vegan or a veggie but loved the food, I would definitely recommend!

Alley cafe is nice if you are looking for vegan or veggie options for lunch but it is not the sort of place you would go for an evening meal. The food is consistently good

Staff were really friendly however I think there needs to be some improvement in staff knowledge of gluten free options. I ordered gluten free bread and an omelette with veggie sausage, which I was told was gluten free. When my food came I double checked if my bread was gluten free. After my waiter checked with the kitchen he told... More
