Description: When I think about Good Food, its about quality and value. After working in some of Australia best food establishments I have discovered making sure high quality standards are applied to the preparation, cooking and presentation of our menu is the key to its success. SideWalk offers a cosmopolitan experience with its footpath dinning. Although this kind of dinning is not unique elsewhere in Australia, we offer a different experience in Airlie Beach, from the fantastic view, the food, wine and service we certainly stand out from the rest. Lovers of good food, coffee and wine love SideWalk.

“Poor service”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

The food here was ok but the service was so slow and disorganised. Everyone got their meals at seperate times so that some of us had finished by the time the last person was served and we had to keep asking the staff for things they had forgotten.

“Great vibe, great food, great coffee ”
Reviewed 6 June 2014 via mobile

Visited the Sidewalk Cafe several times during our one week stay in Airlie. First thing to note is that the coffee is very good - being from Melbourne that is saying a lot! Sandwiches are nice and fresh and a good size, breakfast selection was also impressive. Service can be a little slow in peak times but to be honest I think you should approach a holiday in Airlie with a laid back attitude and just relax; the staff are very friendly in any case.
