We made it this time. Cotton Alley is opened from 11-2pm for lunch and closes between lunch and dinner. I had a tasty barbecue sandwich which included a choice of hand cut fries. I opted for the sweet potato and they were delicious, and at no extra charge like I often see when choosing these fries. My husband ordered the... More

We went for dinner. Casual American menu with Cajun additions. Small in town location with easy free parking. Good service but not rushed. Good wine list and bar. Food was well presented and good. We would go again. Definitely recommended.

Ate lunch at Cotton Alley Café last week. Everyone was very friendly. Food was great. Bloody Mary was one of the best I've had.

Both the service and the food were very good. The maître de offered us a choice of tables and we chose one on the lower level. The service was slow to start but the wait person made up for this with her grace and charm.

We asked a few of the locals about a good place to eat. They all suggested Cotton Alley Cafe. We were so glad we asked and that we chose to dine there. The Grilled Red Fish and the Chicken and Tasso were wonderful. They also serve a drink called Georgia Peaches and Cream that was so good.

The Cotton Alley Cafe was delicious for dinner. The cafe has a great local flair, and is one of the best restaurants in Natchez. They make their own desserts, the orange cake and bread pudding we're especially delicious!

We liked both the service and the food. Large portions. I got their Special of the day which was shrimp and grits and I LOVED it! Many locals were dining there and were greeted by name upon arrival. A nice little place with Southern charm. I wish I had another one of their dinner rolls right now!
