Best Breakfast Around

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... read more

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

Have been a regular at Sidekicks for several years now since just happening upon the place around 5 years ago. Excellent meals, generous servings and very friendly service. I love their burgers! Have yet to find a better one out there....

We stumbled across Sidekicks when we stopped for gas across the street, and are so glad we did! Lovely people, great service, and the best restaurant meal I've had in years of travels. The food was fresh, colourful, comforting without being commonplace, plentiful, and absolutely delicious. Don't be misled by the humble location and decor - this is a true... More

Sidekicks Cafe is a great place to stop for a great meal. Our family just love all day breakfast, so this is our place to go in Markdale, but they also do great sandwiches and burgers as well. I always look at the black board for their daily specials and have been swayed away from my usual eggs and bacon... More

This is a local favourite for some good home cooking. I have had both breakfast and lunch here and it has always been very good. The portions are generous and the service is top notch. Check out the chalk board for some special dishes. Next time you are in the area give Sidekicks a try - you will be back.

I go here several times a week for breakfast. Service is awesome! Coffee is brought right to the table within seconds of arrival. Since iam a regular they know my breakfast order and put it in right away (I dont have to ask or tell them). Food always delicious and waitresses super friendly. I have gone for lunch as well...
