Took my mom for lunch to get her out for a drive and lunch. Food was excellent, as always. Staff are friendly, kind and helpful. Try to keep this little gem to myself but when you rave about this place , it is hard to...keep it a secret.More

Last night we had the best pizza ever! Straight out of the fire onto our plates and it was delicious. Perfectly crisp thin crust with just the right amounts of spinach, garlic and feta cheese with the anchovies perfectly baked into it. Brown on the...edges, moist in the middle. Delicious! A nice frosty beer along with this perfect pizza was a great way to start my Friday night.More

On Easter weekend we enjoyed a lovely patio lunch in a tranquil setting . All the food was delicious and we especially enjoyed the pizza. The staff were all so welcoming. Even in the middle of a pandemic, a very safe and relaxing outdoors lunch...was enjoyed. Highly recommend and will return soon.More

21 hungry cyclists arrived tired and hungry and left full and very satisfied. The team at Alderlea Farm did an amazing job of accommodating us and ensuring our experience was memorable. From taking our orders a day a head of time to setting up reserved...tables to serving fabulous food - all contributing to a memorable experience. I can't speak for everyone - but I will be back!More

Alderlea Farm and Cafe is so amazing! I can’t believe having grown up on the island that it took me until now to find this place. I contacted Katy to put together a gift basket for my aunt who had been taking care of me...during a hard time for our family, and she put together the most beautiful basket I have ever seen. It was full of tons of wonderful products from the farm, including lots of fresh veggies, and a few other great local items. It made my aunt so happy! The place was so beautiful that I decided to come back the next day to bring my mom for lunch. We reserved and pre-ordered and the experience was very seamless. We had pizza and the chicken pot pie... the presentation was beautiful and the food was delicious, everything was so fresh. We felt totally at home on the patio and the view is incredible. We really appreciated the great service from everyone there, and particularly Katy who couldn’t have been more hospitable. I would recommend Alderlea to anyone.More

Would give this cafe a lower than average rating as very unorganized when I had reservations and ordered ahead of time. Left us standing, forgot about us. I had to ask for a table I saw empty. Food was average, great salad, very heavy buns....Glasses were unclean as was the kitchen when I looked in.More

We recently went back to Alderlea for our second time as we loved the original pizza and fresh salad so much the first time! The owners are friendly and know many of their patrons by name. The vegetables are very fresh and tasty having been...sourced on their farm. The view is lovely, and the rural atmosphere enhances an overall relaxed feeling.More

The team at Alderlea Farm and Cafe is dedicated to creating inspiring, healthy, and delicious food -- you sense their dedication and love of their craft (and the Valley) from the front porch through to the farm-to-table meals and pickles to pumpkin pie. In these...extra-ordinary times, the Alderlea team continues to provide excellent meals (including pizza) on Sunday nights. We look forward to this weekly gift! We call in our order, drive the beautiful country road, and pick up our dinner -- so easy. We can also pick up frozen or canned items, something which helps with weekly (or monthly) meal planning. Thank you Alderlea Farm and Cafe for contributing to our community and for continuing to provide such nourishing and inspiring meals!More

Yes, but if we are busy, you can park on Mclay Rd, perpendicular to Glenora Rd, and adjacent to the farm and cafe. Thank you.

Likely wouldn’t need a reservation I would use Google maps to find it as you will need to leave the main highway as you pass through Duncan and head up towards Glenora. Turn left at Miller Road, turn right on Koksilah... More
