As I was leaving town early to get a good start to a long drive, I cruised the main street just before 7am looking for a feed. There were only a few places open, and I noticed a number of people were having breakfast at this Cafe. I chose a ciabatta roll with avocado, pesto, bacon, egg and spinach. It... More

Good spot for some lunch on a hot day. Very reasonably priced for a toasty if that takes your fancy. Other main meals available. Views of the sea.

Location great, staff friendly but unfortunately the chicken parmigiana that was served was burnt to a crisp along with a steak sandwich that was nothing but gristle and was charged $46 was quite disappointed.

Myself and my sister are in the area travelling from England. I had the beef cheek & she had the fish and chips. Both of us were amazed by the food. The beef cheeks were to DIE for! I requested someone to kiss the chef for me! Highly highly recommend!

We stopped by on our first night in Airlie. The staff were really friendly, maybe a little to attentive at times, however the food was delicious and we got exactly what we were expecting to get. Although they didn't have the first two types of wines that I ordered they were honest and friendly and I eventually got some lovely.... More

Great place for a quick bite or to chill and relax over looking the esplanade, close to shops, attractions and the local Saturday morning market 👍

We dined for breakfast which was great. I had scrambled eggs and bacon on toast and the portion was huge and cheap for how good it was. Best scrambled eggs I've had in ages. My partner had the big breakfast and the chorizo sausage was possibly the best I've ever had. We also thought it was a good idea how... More

Had lunch here when we arrived straight through from London. To say we were starving & tired would be an understatement - we couldn't have been made to feel more welcome!! Overlooking the sea (kind of!), the food was amazing, suitably priced. Service great. Have already revisited, albeit just for a drink, but same service & the food looked &... More

When I think about Good Food, its about quality and value. After working in some of Australia best food establishments I have discovered making sure high quality standards are applied to the preparation, cooking and presentation of our menu is the key to its success.

SideWalk offers a cosmopolitan experience with its footpath dinning. Although this kind of dinning is not unique elsewhere in Australia, we offer a different experience in Airlie Beach, from the fantastic view, the food, wine and service we certainly stand out from the rest. Lovers of good food, coffee and wine love SideWalk.
