- May I bring in a cake for a celebration dinner?
Yes, but we do have a $2 per person cake cutting and plating fee.
- Do you have a corkage fee?
Sometimes. If you bring a bottle of a local wine that is not on our wine list, there is no corkage fee. (except on our Tuesday Winemaker’s Nights. Then, there is a $10 corkage on all bottles) Out of area wines have a $10 corkage fee. Larger format bottles such as Magnums may be subject to additional corkage.
- What are your hours?
The Alchemy Cafe is open every day except Wednesday. We open at 11 during the week, 10:30 on Weekends. We are open continuously and usually switch from our Lunch to our Dinner menu at 3:30. We accept our last reservation at 7:30. There are usually 1-2 weeks during the year when we are closed, so please call us first for updated hours if you are planning to come to Alchemy from a distance. (209) 728-0700.
The Alchemy Market is open Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday from 11:00 to 4:30
- Do you sell gift certificates?
YES!!! In person or over the phone. Our credit card type gift cards are an attractive gift, available in any denomination. Also, value may be added at any time, and the cards double as our Frequent Diner Card, giving you 5% off any restaurant or market purchases.
- What type of food do you serve?
Alchemy offers “Comfort Food with a Twist”. Chef Jason takes traditional favorites from around the world and adds his own twist to give you the maximum flavor and satisfaction from each item. One example would be our “Dungeness Crab Macaroni and Cheese”. This is not your normal yellow mac and cheese with elbow macaroni. Come see for yourself!
- When do you offer live music?
Every Tuesday, Alchemy presents Winemaker’s Night, featuring different local bands performing on our patio from 5:30 to 8:00. There are also specials on local wines and special menu items paired to the wines. Reservations are highly recommended. No cover charge.
Every Friday, we present Matt Cullen and his Enhanced Rhythm from 5:30-8, featuring hits from the 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, and beyond.
- Are you dog-friendly?
Yes! We allow well-behaved dogs on our patio.
- Do you have a children’s menu?
Yes! We have children, too, and we encourage well-behaved child diners. See our Menus section for a list of Kid’s Menu items.
- Do you offer beer tastings?
No. Since we aren’t a brewery, we pay a lot of money for our beer. It would be cost prohibitive to offer sample flights of our beers. However, you may taste tap beers before ordering.
- Do you host wedding rehearsals and banquets?
We are not a full service catering company, but we can prepare food for pick up or local delivery for large or small events such as private wine tasting parties, company meetings, or wedding rehearsals. Click here for our wedding rehearsal and banquet menu. Customized menus are also available. Please contact Chef Jason via email or phone to discuss.
- How Many Beers do you Have?
12 rotating taps and at least 180 bottles.
