Get ready to wait a few minutes for this gem. (Wish they had reservations). Food and service is always very consistent and delicious. Have had pretty much every item on the menu, land most of the time on the burgers or the fish. Do yourself a favor and get a desert so yummy. Trendy, Country/ hipster, spot.

This is my favorite place in Ardmore. Good food, great service and nice place. The Pollo panceta is a good choice. The hamburgers are good as well. I just would like some new options in the menu.

This restaurant (and the service we received) was nothing short of amazing. We had a variety of dishes, and all were excellent. My daughter had the mustard-crusted pork chop, my son-in-law had the London broil, my friend had the California burger (with sweet potato fries, served with a marshmallow fluff for dipping), and I had the Santa Fe chicken. Every... More

We were staying in Ardmore for a couple of nights and decided to have dinner at Cafe Alley after reading the reviews on Trip Adviser. We started with salads that were good. My husband had a steak that was well prepared and I had the smoked chicken that was excellent. We took a piece of the carrot cake to have... More

We were driving through and stopped in Ardmore for dinner. Cafe Alley was the top rated review and for VERY good reason. The best smoked chicken dinner I've ever had! Their salad dressings were our first positive impression - the Italian is homemade and the honey lime has exceptional flavor. The smoked chicken had the best flavor I've ever had.... More

After our GPS misled us, a phone call had a friendly staff member named Casey directing us right to the packed parking lot of this great eatery beside the old train station. We were welcomed in and enjoyed a fabulous dinner at a reasonable price that exceeded expectations in every way. Great service, ambience, drinks and the tastiest pork chop... More

We try to make it to Cafe Alley every week if possible. The food is expertly prepared and is of top quality ingredients. Jason is truly a chef and Samantha is the friendliest host ever! The atmosphere, the food, the service, all combine to make this a place you'll want to return to often!

Highly recommend this place. Have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. Anyone that hasn't ate here is missing out. They have probably the best steak and pork chops in town.
