Quirky and Fun!

The secret here is to arrive at an off time because parking is a problem and getting a table is a problem. It's popular because it is good. My only complaint would be that things are a bit oilier than I would prefer, especially with the kale chips. This is a "feel good" place though and earns... read more

A few of us met here for a light dinner-what a fun place! Fresh salads and a decent selection of wines. The service was prompt and friendly. Nice casual dining and a lovely outdoor area. Will definately be back!

This restaurant has a beautiful garden tucked away from the street with beautiful flowers, a fountain and heaters and quilts...I loved just looking at the collection of blankets and quilts (see photo). We arrived, three ladies, for a late morning breakfast. We ordered at the counter and decided to enjoy our meal in the garden. I had the Veggie Scramble.... More

Never had a chance to eat breakfast here until recently, And I'm so glad I finally did! Their new location is Fantastic, and the breakfast items are really tasty. I can't wait to go back again and try something new since It all looks so good! The only difficulty is getting a table, So be prepared to wait!

A really eclectic place that has a very homey feel with very good menu and quality of food. But what really make this place work is the patio dining. Very comfortable with a nice little waterfall feature. I thought it a bit pricey for what it is and the margareta was quite watery but still a good place.

Sideboard is a wonderful restaurant/cafe with quite a variety to choose from. Blue Bottle coffee beverages produce some of the best espresso drinks around. They also make a wonderful Watermelon cooler and a pretty decent Sangria as well. Service is very helpful...although if it is busy it can get pretty hectic, I have definitely spent time standing around feeling like... More

I may be a little partial, since my niece designed the graphics on their sweatshirt, but I had never been there before so it hardly impacts my review! Coming from NC I am picky about my banana pudding, but sideboard delivers on this dessert option. It was just as good as they promised it would be before I ordered it.... More

After two years (prior at old location) wanted to give Sideboards a second chance. Same old story, except food was degraded to just average from our first experience. Service has not changed. Same arrogant "doing you a favor" attitude as before.
