Traveled to Ardmore on a business trip, and after trying out another restaurant the first night in town and not being wowed, I decided to try out Cafe Alley after reading the great reviews. Much better choice!! The service was wonderful, and the food was fantastic. I actually had to come back another night during my trip because the food... More

This place was an absolute hidden gem! We had never heard of it but I went on TripAdvisor and searched for the best restaurants in the area and Cafe Alley was #1. The food and the service was top notch. The wait was about 30 minutes but we'll worth it. We both ordered a steak that would melt in your... More

It's not convenient, so if you're in a hurry, save this place for another time...it's worth the effort. The menu was interesting and the choices we made were very good. There was a small... More

Been to Ardmore a lot in the past and just learned about this little Jewell via TripAdvisor. Had lunch there. It was very good. A wide selection of local beers and the prices were very reasonable. Will definitely return.

The options in Ardmore are limited and this is one of the few restaurants in town with a menu that branches outside of your standard southern comfort fare. My colleagues and I have tried a number items on the menu and each of the entrees has been excellent (I've found some of the sides to be hit or miss). The... More

From the moment we stepped into the restaurant we were happy with our visit. The waiter that we had was very friendly and let us know what the special was, he let us have time to talk for a bit and kept checking on us. The food was incredible. Will definitely go back again.

The best place to eat in Ardmore, and one of the best restaurants I've ever eaten at. Whether you want steak, pasta or sandwich, all are excellent!
