You wait in line to place your order! It takes 10 minutes or so to get your coffee. By the time they bring the coffees over, you are done with your breakfast! Since I eat pastry or muffin for breakfast, they are not cooking anything for me. But still it takes them along time. I just don't like the service!

I wish I could give Sideboard four stars but I can't. I do like their breakfasts (egg benedict) and hearty fresh salads and my daughter loves their blue cheese/potato chip "nachos", but despite the Danville love affair with the ecletic and casual Sideboard I cannot get over the "hectic" race to tables on the weekend or standing in line to...

New location for Danville's well known Sideboard serving up fresh wholesome plates. The Brussels are irresistible, salads and soups are excellent; coffees are their specialty. I'll be back to try those nachos I saw at the next table. At peak times you will have to wait for seating because the place is quite popular. Open everyday and all day.

Great place for friends to meet and enjoyed a tasty sandwich, cheeseburger or salad. Ingredients always fresh and interesting. Now that they're moved to a larger venue from the old Danville Hotel, I was hoping to see some new menu additions. I'm a long standing fan of the place, but the lack of change to the standard fare, limits the... More

Sideboard has a good solid menu. It is casual as in the kind of restaurant where you place your order at the counter, take a number and they deliver it to your table. Parking is difficult and if the weather is iffy it can be cold and drafty or pretty warm...

Prices are like most restaurants but you order at the counter and it's a lot of a la carte versus inclusive items both at brunch and dinner. Breakfast had some unique combinations but dinner was very disappointing. Food wasn't hot enough. It wasn't very tasty.

Sideboard has decent food, but nothing spectacular. The men u has a lot of interesting items which on paper sound quite good, but when served, the items do not live up to their expectations. Additionally, I have noticed that the food comes out of the kitchen luke warm and some patrons recently sent their hamburger back to be cooked more... More

Really good food! Natural ingredients and wonderful flavors compliment every dish. A scramble ,yum, the breakfast sandwich enough for 2 with bread that is so fresh. That way you have room for one of the fabulous sweets. Really good coffee drinks. Go up to the counter and order and a server will bring your meal to your table. It is... More

I love going here for coffee or lunch. The salads are huge and delicious. The atmosphere is lively and comfortable. I love that I can grab a blanket when I am cold.

I've eaten here a few times and have been very pleased. The food has been good and I love the relaxed atmosphere. Dog friendly, too! Great staff.
