We went there and ordered pastries first as we were celebrating. The pineapple pastry had fungus on it. When we told the management there, they took away the pastry and threw it off and said don't pay for it. No sorry, no apologies. Pathetic people, pathetic place. If you don't want your stomach to go bad during your vacation, please... More

I loved the Pizza and my little one loved the spinach cheese quiche. We went there after reading some very good reviews on the Internet and the cafe didn't let us down!

You have to be able to go with the trendy music they have playing. We split a huge piece of cake and had a pot of coffee and tea respectively. Cake was tasty and fresh. I've never seen so many tea bags in one pot in my life! Having said that, we enjoyed ourselves immensely. Not crowded, and had the... More

We went to this place in Ooty to have our dinner and ordered 2 pastries before ordering food. The pineapple pastry had fungii on it and was smelling really bad. When we brought this to the manager's notice he was adamant that it is good while we showed him why it isnt. The waiter meanwhile just took the pastry plate... More

We ordered a soup, pizza and pasta. I dont exactly remember the names of the dishes, but the food was good. I found it a bit overpriced. The ambience was good.

this review is specific to the bakery section of the cafe. we ordered a birthday cake for one of our friend's birthday during our trip to ooty, the decoration was awful and it tasted pretty average, not even worth what they charged. Would not recommend.

Ooty town centre is short of places to eat but the Sidewalk Cafe offers simple dishes in a bright environment. Sometimes safe fast food hits the spot.

Well, it sure did attempt to be an American diner. The food was decent, nothing remarkable though. The place had good crowd and I guess that was about it. The food quality can be improved a bit more. The soup was watery and the dishes are pricey for the quality. But, nonetheless, one of the better places at Ooty to... More
