Great breakfast!

The service is friendly - the food is very good. Generous servings - I love their menu written on a chalkboard. Great value.

We stopped in on a trip to Owen Sound. 45 minutes from order to food ( plus 5 minutes before ordering) for relatively simple egg dishes is beyond acceptable. The food was ordinary and bland. Staff were friendly and apologetic but it was still 45 minutes for eggs.

This is not a fancy place, but it's clean and the staff is extremely friendly. The coffee is excellent and delivered soon after you sit down. There are specials listed on a huge blackboard as well as a good selection of items listed on the menu. There were three of us. We each had something different and it was delivered... More

Markdale's Sidekicks Cafe is well known in the area for a great breakfast or lunch. Open from 6am to 3pm. Closed Tuesdays. Located on highway #10 beside the LCBO with ample parking. Specials are artfully written in chalk on the side wall in addition to the menu items and all is consistently good home-style cooking. The selection is varied from... More

Sometimes a little noisy (as they are a popular spot with the Townspeople), both their breakfast and luncheon fare are really very good and are not pricey. They are open from very early and close shortly after lunch at 2:00pm, hence they are strictly a breakfast and lunch stop. Basically you won't be disappointed, there offer lots of food on... More

Attentive and friendly staff make for a great start to your day. There is a good variety of choices and the pancakes are second to none. Located on the north end of Markdale there is plenty of parking and always a hot pot of coffee. If you like a hearty breakfast and a casual family atmosphere its worth the look.

We each had the classic breakfast with coffee, $20 all in with taxes and tip. The food is very good, but the coffee was a bit weak for my tastes, but the staff very nice. The place is very plain, but it's decent, but a refresh of the decor soon might be a good idea. We liked it anyway, and... More

We stopped by Sidekicks on our way back from Owen Sound to Toronto, even without knowing the reviews. You may think it is one of the run down breakfast places when you go inside, let me tell you this is wrong. These friendly people are serving good quality food for a reasonable price.I had two eggs breakfast, bacon was crispy,... More
