The food here is incredible - lots of delicious mussels with pasta, an amazing grilled salmon, and the best sticky toffee pudding. Great service too!

During a spur-of-the-moment visit to the Stratford Festival, we discovered Keystone Alley and would highly recommend it for dinner. It is beautifully located just around the corner from the Avon theatre. Its unassuming shop front gives way to a delightful interior with soft colours. The...More

We had an thoroughly satisfying dining experience at Keystone Alley. The service was excellent and friendly. All the dishes were delicious, but I'd particularly mention the duck liver pate, which was served brûlé and was absolutely fantastic. Our party also enjoyed the steak frites, which...More

Do you have a children's menu? We are looking for a restaurant to have an early dinner with our grandchildren ages 8 and 11 after the theatre around 5:30 on Wednesday next week.

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.
