If this wasn't in Airlie it would get 4 stars, still great, however as it's probably the best cafe in town for breaky it gets 5. Sit up on the bench with water views or on a table or couch. Service was excellent and breakfast was delicious and well priced. Definitely recommend.

Sidewalk Cafe was a lovely local little cafe with an amazing view looking over the water. Food and coffee was very average though.

What can we say, the food is delicious and well priced, the staff are friendly and happy, and are more than obliging to consider special requests that Are not te exact menu item. We tried so many things off of the menu and we're pleased with everything! Enjoy. A must stop for good food, coffee and service

We buy our coffees from Sidewalk regularly and they are excellent. The cafe is always full of people so they are running a good show

Went here for a drink and a snack most of us ordered a thick shake which came out in awesome cold cups so yummy! My mum ordered the banana bread with cinnamon butter and honey which was to die for. Wish we could have had a proper lunch but ran out of time

Ate here twice. Well presented food which tasted great. Grilled fish with spinach and tomatoes was a good healthy option! Friendly staff. However, the cake was tasteless and seemed several days old.
