My husband and I went to Keystone Alley for dinner on New Year's Eve, it was amazing. We first received complimentary champagne to celebrate the New Year, such a nice touch! I started with the Caesar salad which was the best one that I had ever have (lots of fresh bacon :) ) . I had the pork duo; it... More

Loved our dinner at Keystone Alley in Stratford. I would highly recommend the Al Braised Beef Brisket and the Ling Cod entrees. Service was great! Kimberly and Anthony, the new owners of the newly decorated restaurant, were very friendly and welcoming. I will definitely go back.

The food was artistic and incredible tasty! I've eaten here multiple times now (all seasons) and have enjoyed the experience each time. We also stayed upstairs at the Key'd Inn and very much enjoyed the convenience of being right upstairs from our group for dinner, and the fresh breakfast delivered to the door!

Stopped in for snacks while working on the road. Tried their beet salad, sides of kale and fried smelt. The ingredients are so fresh and the smelt was fried to perfection! Great presentation. Comfortable spacious seating. Would go back again. Good price too!

Had the daily special. German influenced dinner with schnitzel and an outstanding warm potato salad. Nice presentation, tender, not salty. The service was attentive and pleasant. To top off the lunch, although I don't normally have desert, we enjoyed a deconstructed carrot cake. Perfect plate....looked great and tasted even better. Overall, excellent value and a lovely lunch.

We stumbled upon this hidden gem that's slightly off the beaten track and boy are we Glad we did. This family run restaurant caters to everyone. The freshness of the food was better than that of my home country (a tropical island). We found the menu extremely well written and easy to read, there is literally something for everyone. My...

We had to go home tonight to write our review after a memorable dinner. Thank you to the Keystone Alley Staff for making us feel so special and for taking such good care of us! We had the beet salad, stuffed pasta, hippie bowl (great name) and the beef brisket). If you can believe it we even had room for... More

Description
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.
