Great Local cafe in town where locals GO near the Esplanade. Coffee was really good, ordered their famous pancake with berry compote plus bacon and egg roll shared of course. Very helpful Staff and Owner. The place to go for brekkie. See you next time.

Overall the food was alright the vegetarian salad was nice but the Greek salad was more lettuce than anything else and definitely not worth half of the money we paid. Staff was nice.

I'm honestly surprised this place has negative reviews as i really cant complain about anything. The wait was acceptable given the volume of traffic. The food was as well presented as it was delicious. The staff (who were EXTREMELY busy) were bubbly, friendly and attentive....More

The pork belly was less than carboard, dry and tastless. The waitress asked us how everything was and we had to come clean - we just could not eat it. The thing was, she was not even surprised - just like it was expected. Maybe...More

1 particular staff member was rude, sour faced and unwelcoming. Food was okay, but took a long for what it was. Good luck finding the toilets!!!

I wasn’t sure if this place was table service or not. After saying hello to 2 waitresses, who walked straight by, I just went to the counter. Placed my order, got a number, chose my own table. Not a big deal, apart from being brushed,...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.
