Alleycat Cafe, Canterbury

If I’m looking for a serene place to chat with friends over a coffee in Maling Road I usually stop by the Alleycat Cafe in Theatre Place. The food and coffee are delicious and the prices are very reasonable. Sitting out in Theatre Place under the trees is very tranquil and a wonderful way to spend the afternoon. On the weekend, you can feel like a Parisian and enjoy some freshly prepared crepes and the kids will enjoy watching them being created... as well as consuming them! The Alleycat Cafe also hosts events and gluten free food can be provided if required.

·        Alleycat Tart with breakfast egg, bacon, mushroom, and onion tart in a pot ($8.90)
·        Brie and Tomato Croissant ($7.50)
·        Salted caramel crepe ($7.00)
·        White chocolate with raspberry coulis crepe ($9.90)

I thought I would try out their crepes today. I decided to have the ‘Strawberry, cream and meringue crumble crepe served with St. David Dairy Cream ($9.90)’. Yum, yum, and yum! The juicy, rosy strawberries, crisp meringue and luscious cream created a scrumptious concoction. I think that this is my new favourite Alleycat dish now...


My dining companion picked the ‘Spinach and pine nut quiche ($7.90)’. I have this quiche quite often and it is very tasty. The pastry is flaky and the filling has the right amount of sharp cheese and a generous serving of pine nuts.


My latte ($3.80) using Padre Coffee’s Daddy’s Girl Blend and St David Dairy was delightful.



The service is friendly but can be a bit all over the place. Sometimes you get table service and other times you order at the counter. Sometimes we have received the wrong meal or been overcharged and undercharged. If they could just manage to make the service refined and consistent, then this cafe would be perfect. Menus and water when seated would also be ideal.
