We came to Nottingham for a 2 night break and came to the Alley cafe twice! Such a cool, friendly atmosphere, great food and good value. Amazing veggie breakfast, obliging staff and a good choice of snacks and main meals. And a good bar as well with cocktails and organic lagers as well as the usual drinks. Not to be missed!

My son is a regular visitor to this Cafe so whilst in Nottingham decided to take him out to lunch.
What a nice place to eat - great veggie and vegan food at a great price - brilliant atmospher and music.
A "must" for my next visit to Nottingham.

I go to Alley Cafe most weeks, and am never disappointed. Friendly, ethical, cosy, good music, good food. It's much more a cafe bar rather than a restaurant though, so don't go for the romantic fine dining experience, but for a casual bite to eat in Nottingham City Centre this is definitely the place to go...

I was looking for somewhere to have lunch in Nottingham city centre and feeling quite despondent as the only choices seemed to be the usual chains such as Mcdonald's when I saw a sign pointing down an alley. What a great find. They serve a good selection of very moderately priced vegetarian snacks and meals as well as a good choice of drinks including my favourite Czech lager on tap. It is so unusual to find a place like this that is relaxed, informal, cheap and serves alcohol.

I just love this place. Its up an alley so you may well walk past it before you find it, but do go find it! Its small, funky, does veggie food, great smoothies, fresh OJ and immense chunky chips! Its cool, calm, relaxed and one for anyone who loves a chilled out vibe.
