“Good food and wine, service not consistant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

We have eaten at the Side Door a few times now and the food is always good. They have a nice selection of wine to choose from. The sandwiches are very good as well as the crepes. We have not made it for their breakfast yet. The place is located right at the village which is very central. Only complaint is inconsistent service. We had this one waitress who came up to our table and she just threw the menus down. How about handing them to us or placing them on the table? Most of the other staff was good.

“CRAMPED--”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

The Side Door serves great paninis and crepes; however, the restaurant is too small; especially for everyone in their winter gear. There is seating from probably 50 people, but they can stuff in 80 or so according to the fire marshal. Service was very slow and when there wasn't a 45 to 2 hour wait, the place was so crowded that those in the room were bumping against you all the time.

“A Must When In Mammoth!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

My children are the foodies of the group, and will not miss a stop here for the sweet and savory crepes. My 10 year-old's favorite savory crepe is the Broadway, and my 7 year-old loves the sweet crepe Rollercoaster. They also have a delicious breakfast menu. Their coffee is good and they have a nice wine selection by the glass, and note my children have yet to try! Prices are reasonable. Service is on the slower side during the high season, but very friendly.

“Great litte spot in the Village”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

We have eaten at Side Door 3 or 4 times and is very good. The crepes are all very good, the dessert crepes are delicious, especially the Nutella and Banana.

This last visit I opted for a Panini and it was wonderful. We sat outside on the patio and just enjoyed the views, people watching, friendly service and great food.
