A good average breakfast and the coffee was ok. It was busy and seemed very popular but breakfast places are somewhat limited when there area lot of tourists about. The cafe overlooks the water which is lovely to just sit and and enjoy the view.

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.
