We came here for dinner while the shops were still open, and were thankful that we did because it filled up quickly once the shops closed. The food was decent-not the best I've had in the area but it did the trick when we were hungry. Service was a little slow but they only had one waitress covering the entire... More

We had Thanksgiving dinner at this wonderful restaurant. It was fabulous. I would drive the 2.5 hour one way to Leavenworth just to eat at The Alley Cafe.

Quiet dining experience. The Smoked Salmon Caesar Salad is to die for. Great appetizers: The shrimp in a glass is really nice. Entrees are varied, however would stay away from the Spaghetti as the sauce does not have a lot of flavor. The Fettuccine sauce could be a little thicker with more garlic, but the overall food quality is really... More

A must when we visit. We love the quaint atmosphere. The food is always very good, drinks are tasty and staff are friendly. The pasta is good, burgers very good. We haven't had a bad meal here. The meatballs with spaghetti are yummy!

We were directed to the Alley Cafe by a local shop owner who said her family goes there for all their special occasions. We were treated with the utmost curtesy upon our arrival and our server was very attentive. The dining room was very well furnished and provided a relaxing atmosphere. Our meals were good but we felt they were... More

We were looking forward to dinner here, given the Trip Advisor reviews. Unfortunately, very disappointing overall. We walked in, were not greeted in friendly manner-more surly. The waitress was nice, but did not seem to know the food nor was she familiar with wine. The table was tiny so we had to keep handing dishes to the server. The rolls... More

We were taken in by the other reviews here and went in for dinner. Very quiet; we thought we were ahead of the crowd, but locals must know. Started well: nice atmosphere, waitress was attentive, but then the food: started with stale rolls hard enough to break teeth. When we complained, they brought out the fresh rolls. Then ordered the... More
