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.

A great environment and a cool place to relax or meet. Good food, cool people, the place to meet in Danville.

You have to wait in a long line just to get coffee and pastries. Then you have to wait for a table to open up. Then we sat at our table ( with pastries ) waiting for our coffee to be delivered which took at least 10-15 minutes. It's too bad because the food is good.

Came here with friends for breakfast on a weekday morning. It was a little busy but found a nice patio seat. Very good choice of coffee and teas. Had an amazing breakfast pudding. Basically it was a custard filled with goat cheese and asparagus. Simply mouthwatering. Place is dog-friendly.

We always really liked the old Sideboard location but agree its space was limited. Still true with the new spot but that's because the place is so popular. Love the breakfasts-- just wish they had them everyday--and I've enjoyed every lunch I have had there. Great fries and burgers! And it's always a treat to see all the visiting dogs!!... More

Sideboard is a bit different than most restaurants I've been to, but a little unorganized which might be what they're going for. If you all get in line you might find yourself with no table when you've ordered. If you have someone "get a table" while you're in line you feel guilty watching everyone look for a table. They were... More

We're local residents, and had heard about Sideboard for a while so we decided to check it out. We won't bother going back. The food was good enough, but certainly not great. But the staff was outright Rude, with a capital 'R'. I don't need my server to be my best friend, but I do like someone who is friendly... More

Five of us had great lunch - chicken tortilla soup, BLAT Sammy, chicken enchiladas , salad. The fries are to die for. Lots of options looked great. Grabbing a seat is a challenge- but worth it!

Decided to give the Sideboard another try due to its re location into larger premises. Joined the queue to order and pay. A table became available and patrons who had just come through the door immediately grabbed it. Had to remonstrate with them, not a stress free way to start a meal. Asked a server if she could sort it... More
