Crispy Brussels sprouts were a great start. The noodle bowl and pork tenderloin were well-prepared. Our table in the outdoor patio areas was wonderful (weather cooperated). Service was attentive.

Servier's recommendation and she was right on! Delicious, perfectly prepared ... who needs a knife? Onions and other veggies were wonderful. Pureed potatoes terrific. My only challenge was the huge portions! Started with the heirloom tomato/goat cheese salad. Wonderful. Perfect dressing didn't overpower the heirlooms....More

Went there for dinner after a show. Everything about this restaurant was tops, the seating in the "alley", the service, the food, the ambiance.

For three decades The Keystone Alley Café has continually evolved, from its start as a small coffee shop into the popular casual fine dining restaurant that you see today. The Keystone Alley Cafe was named after the well-known Keystone Bakery located on these premises earlier. The 'alley' in the current name describes the area adjacent to the restaurant used for patio dining in the summer months. The Keystone Alley Cafe strives to provide a family style menu of fresh, bold flavoured foods, while supporting locally and sustainably. Over the years, many improvements have been made, including the addition of the "Key'd Inn", a spacious two bedroom suite rental situated above the restaurant.
