Just happened to walk pass great place, comfy and relaxing. Cocktails are a treat. Meals were lovely a bit pricey though. Did take a little while to receive meals due to being so busy with cruise ship passengers. But worth the wait.

My partner and I went here for dinner one of our nights in airlie beach due to the free wifi they offered (our hotel didn't have any). We were also excited that they had 5 different vegetarian options on their menu. Trio of dips were...More

Friendly service, always good quality food & drink. I can honestly say i've never had a bad experience here from breakfast, lunch and dinner...and it's just a cafe!

If this was anywhere else it wouldn't have survived. Not that the food was terrible (it wasn't - although it wasn't great either) . I had the reef fish and chips. As fish and chips it was better than average. Panko crusted nicely moist inside....More

All,I can say is, at 0700 am this morning we wanted breakfast, asked a taxi driver for a recommendation, he said Sidewalk, and he was right! Best brekky around I reckon.

Not many cafes open early, but this one which opens by 6.30am is a perfect spot to enjoy that early coffee after a run or walk.AND has a lovely view of the water close by

Bad service. Thankfully only ordered the coffee - the food didnt look appetizing and their service is very unfriendly. Nobody comes by to acknowledge you. Things are just thrown at your table (literally). The waitress spilled my coffee as she was bringing it over and...More

Service was good, smiles all round but food was terrible. Eggs were like rubber, hash browns were soggy and sour cream was almost curdled. Best part of breakfast was the smoked salmon. Good atmosphere just needs improvement on the food.

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.
