A quarter century is a great run! 

Our landlord decided to not renew our lease therefore Eden Alley Vegetarià will no longer be open as of August 2018. We have donated our restaurants' equipment to local charities to ensure the mission to feed the hungry continues...


On Monday, September 10th, the contents and equipment that helped us make Eden Alley exist, will begin to be donated to several local charities dedicated to feeding the hungry.

Sandi's former high school, Northeast High School’s Village Mart, a food pantry run by dynamo Roberta Holt-Kipper, will be taking the food, helping to feed students and families.

Most of our equipment and tables will be used in Dale Lightfoot's Lightfoot Ministries and the Barefoot Mission, local food kitchens, which will be able to feed the homeless and those in need for years to come :)

Thanks again for your continued support during one of the hardest times in our lives.

Our amazing team will be out looking for new opportunities, if you can help.

We love and appreciate you.

Our customers tend to love pretty much everything they eat. A popular phrase we hear is "I've never had a bad meal here" or the other day, "This is the best food we have ever eaten, outside of our house" pretty great comments! Our customers appreciate us and we love them!

As a small business who helps feed the world, we believe that conducting a profitable business in ways that are sensitive to the environment is the only way to do business.

Our commitment to the environment and emphasis on awareness, conservation, waste reduction and recycling positively affects the lives of our customers, staff and all of the inhabitants in our surrounding area, today and tomorrow. We support and encourage recycling and all actions to reduce the solid waste produced in our restaurant operation and are constantly in search of better ways of doing business.

We have grown in size and knowledge over the years we have been open and there are several areas we have improved on from a health point. The majority of our menu selections are completely vegan or able to be with slight modification.

We also offer gluten-free and soy-free items. We incorporate traditional, organic and synthetic free ingredients in creating our specials. We also make it a point to continuously change our special offerings so that our customers have a fantastic variety. Some of our customers come in several times a week and have the choice of ordering a different meal each time.

We list our menu on the website and 
Micro-Specials are promoted via Facebook, Twitter (@edenalleycafe) and Instagram (#edenalleycafe). Coming for SATURDAY BRUNCH? Check out our BRUNCH SPECIALS available from 11 to 4.
