Highly recommend the Homestead Burger and fries. Flavourful burger with properly fried house-made french fries. My partner's Eggs Benny was great as well: eggs poached to his liking and what tasted like house-made Hollandaise. The only let down was the "breakfast hash browns" which were chopped-up fries. Still tasty though! Sharply priced; a very good value. We'll be back.

Love this charming cafe! I try to go every time I'm in Sidney. Great breakfasts and burgers that could win awards. Love the waitress whom unfortunately I don't know her name. But she's very attentive and makes you feel at home. Any soups I've had over the years have been delicious. Always worth the trek over to the 'other' side... More

Stopped in here after a bike ride and had a burger. One of the best seasoned burgers I've ever had, excellent ! My friend was more than happy with his bowl of chowder.

Although located in an industrial park, this place more than makes up for it's location and simplistic decor by providing great food, service and value. Homestead Cafe's prices are surprisingly good considering quality of their offerings. Their breakfasts may just be the best in Sidney...

There are several excellent breakfast places in Sidney and this is one of the best. Simple, lots to eat, good prices, well presented and friendly staff. My wife asked about an unusual plant on the windowsill and the chef gave her one to take home! Turns out he grows them. We'll be back.

No burger patties here! All homemade, from burgers to pies with the real taste of home. Incredible breakfasts including complete gluten free options!

I am just so pleased with the comfortable setting and friendly, efficient staff. But the food is the reason to return again and again. I have been three times since the management changed and it is just yummy. Between the delicious homemade soups, burgers, preserves and glorious desserts it is so hard to choose. Go. You will love it. Especially... More

Having seen this was the only place in Sidney with 100% rating , we thought we'd try some home cooking . we both chose the days special - Beef dips with either chips ( we're english) or caesar salad , or Fish chowder . we had the chips as extra - totally unneccessary ; the two dips each were plenty...

This café is located in an industrial area of Sidney. It is a real café with good food. They make their own sausages and jam. The presentation and the favors are excellent. It were the local go for breakfast or lunch. Run with pride and enthusiasm.
