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

We are locals and regulars. The duck liver mousse, the brussel sprouts, the hippie Bowl, any of their beef dishes,... We are gluten-free and they accommodate beautifully. So good! We are always thrilled to go to Keystone.

Delicious lunch pre-theatre. Had the shredded kale-brussels sprout salad which was quite substantial. My husband really enjoyed the bbq pork sandwich special. Patio is covered and cool, even on a hot day. Prompt service.

Great food options made with fresh ingredients - mussels, caesar salad, noodle bowl, cheese cake - all delicious! Good wine/beer list. Service excellent although the restaurant was very busy. Nicely decorated/ambience. Would definitely eat here again!

Yes there is a lovely covered patio in the alley beside the restaurant. One of the nicest in Stratford. Quiet, picturesque and quite intimate. Enjoy!

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.
