Driving thru Williams Lake before most places are open and found this place. The cook spoke to me directly on the phone and listed what I could eat, and made sure when I was served that I knew she'd used different utensils and pans for my meal. Great service and delicious food!

What an eclectic little restaurant. This is run as a family business and they are so aware of good quality food. Love their breakies and lunches. Just remember - if you want food here come before dinner because it isn't open. A must try.

The staff are always so nice. The food is your basic burgers and sandwiches but good size portions. I love the kitty cat decor.

Without even ordering, the first thing you'll be served is a smile and warm welcome at this warm and cozy cafe. Alley Katz has a wide range of home-style dishes as well as some interesting international fare. Robust portions and moderate prices make it a perfect place to enjoy a relaxing breakfast or lunch. We went for lunch and were... More

Everything was good, with one exception - a great reuben, loaded with lots of meat, good beef dip & caesar salad - all got a thumbs up. The disappointing order were the fries were strangely undercooked & cold at the same time.

Nothing fancy here - except the collection of ceramic kitties on the shelf above the till. This is a favourite hangout spot for the fuzz, so you know they serve coffee. Alley Kats has the honour of being one of the only restaurants other than Dennys to be open on a Sunday Morning in Williams Lake, so for that reason,... More

This is a good restaurant for lunch. It serves breakfast all day. The portions are a good size and service is friendly. Make sure you check what days/hours it is open. They can change. It's a good family restaurant and also caters to the lunch crowd from the government buildings across the street.

Had a meeting here and ordered lunch. Food was ok, but nothing special. Most places let you order a bun - less burger or wrap with lettuce instead of the tortilla. Not so easy here, seemed like a very complicated request. A bit outdated overall.

Server was extremely rude, embarrassed our table of ten in front of all the other tables in the place by shaming us for having a few fries on the floor after eating with three children under 2 years old and a 5 & 6 year old! We were told next time we went there we would be charged a cleaning... More

Ordered breakfast and didn't get what we ordered.. I ordered sausages with my breakfast and my wife ordered bacon. We both got ham - looked like cooked sandwich meat to me. Anyway, we didn't say anything as it wasn't a huge deal and ate our meal and when my wife went to pay she mentioned the mistake in our orders.... More
