Respond to Review of Alley Cafe Bar
by madbrewer

Review: This is a place for hipster vegetarians to lounge around on lumpy sofas eating sandwiches and drinking beer while looking at works by local artists and listening to hip music. The food is pretty tasty, the prices are a little shocking but the portions fill you up, the staff are indifferent, and the average age of the clientele appears to be about 24. It's the kind of place where you expect people gather to compare stories of their summer classes at the Sorbonne while readjusting their designer organic fiber scarves. The restaurant is a long narrow room, usually packed full, colorfully decorated, pleasant enough to be in. Love the fact that they promote local artists. There's a Middle Eastern-style appetizer plate w/ hummus and such that is quite delicious, once you manage to get the staff to pay attention to you long enough to place your order.

Just to make the title of this review more clear: I learned the Saturn Cafe that currently exists in Santa Cruz is not the same as it was when I was there in the '80s. It used to be a funky old place on Mission St, not the industrial chic place downtown it appears to be now. Not that many people will have gone to both Alley Cafe in Nott'm and Saturn Cafe in Santa Cruz...
