Met a new acquaintance for lunch. We are both new (ish) downtown residents. She had not been to Edge Alley. I’d been a couple of times, both for breakfast.

I love the natural light, the care taken with the food and that the restaurant is a little tucked away. Edge Alley is a (somewhat) hidden gem.

I’m glad they are a dining option in my neck of the woods!

My husband and I went for Sunday brunch. We split the burger and chicken sandwich. The burger with cheese was juicy and flavorful. The chicken sandwich had all my favorite flavors of thanksgiving, but still fresh and light for a warm day. We both finished all of our chips which are house-made and come with a delicious aioli for dipping.

Such a fun little spot - delicious coffee drinks and brunch in a lively atmosphere. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here and then walked next door for a beer at High Cotton. We will definitely be returning!

Excellent breakfast plate and french toast pancakes and nice service. Softened (instead of hard chilled) butter for biscuits and cushioned seating would be a plus. Great outdoor spot.

Food was excellent. We were there for Father’s Day Brunch and the chicken and waffles were the best I have had!! Service wasn’t horrible but was a little on the slow end of the spectrum but they were busy. There was a smokey, eye irritating funk in the air at first but either I got used to it or it dissipated. Did I mention the food was great? Worth the trip!

Unfortunately, we waited 5-10 minutes to be acknowledged at the hostess stand (only 1 person was in front of us). That should have been a sign that they were overwhelmed. They apologized for being "very busy" yet there were empty tables the entire time, so it didn't seem like they could be too busy. We waited about 10-15 minutes for our table, that we had a reservation for and then another 15-20 minutes to even have a waitress come and bring us water. It was then another 30 minutes before we ever got our drinks. Total our lunch took about 2 hours, food was just fine, nothing to complain about but nothing to write home about. Will not be returning as it took ridiculously too long for anything to occur.

Mother’s Day is probably not the best day to evaluate a restaurant. They were a little overwhelmed, yet produced superb and tasty food. The waitress was a star. Yes, we will go back for dinner

Amazing food at excellent prices! We love their chicken sandwich, French toast waffles, brown cow now coffee, and steak and eggs.
Amazing space. They have outdoor seating, a bar area, and allow dogs outside.
Amazing host - Super fashionable and friendly guy that’s ready to help and seat you!
Amazing location with a decent amount of parking.
AWFUL service. Like it KILLS all of the above. It takes forever for the wait staff to notice and service you. Forever. But the food is worth it. So we keep going back hoping they learn...
