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 A bit outdated overall.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

A restaurant located across from the court house in Williams Lake. Sometimes if someone does not reserve a seat for you there is no place to sit. It is known for it's decorations of cats all around the restaurant. Service is known to be slow. It is a good idea to call ahead, ask what the special of the day... More

I came in here with a large group, for breakfast. It was pretty awesome. Especially for the 20+ people we had. Eggs, sausage.. that was all good. I would come again.

I had the special which was 2 Chicken Sliders and Clam Chowder. I was surprised the sandwiches were so big (like a regular sized burger). The chowder was very nice and hot. Could not complain about the food. The decor leaves much to be desired, but it is a bistro and not fancy dining.
