Keystone Alley is right across the street from The Studio theater, making it the perfect spot for pre-play lunch or dinner. Our party of four had lunch there and very much enjoyed the local produce and specialties. Portion sizes are generous. It's also vegetarian and...More

Lunch at Keystone was busy but efficient. The menu satisfied all of us from 8-80 years old. Especially impressive were the quiche, platter, steak frites and fish and chips. The poppyseed lemon dessert is worth returning for many times. The location is ideal: minutes walk...More

I found the food a little bland. However, it is a very nice place to eat. The french fries were delicious.

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.
