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.

We attended this establishment twice in one day, and both times we were greeted by 3 very surly looking wait staff, who could not even manage to fake a smile, and put a real downer on our experience. Coffee order was wrong, however still lovely...More

Lovely cafe with good food and nice coffee. Situated in the center of Airlie Beach on the Esplanade, it looks out to the boats anchored in the bay. You can enjoy the bussel of tourists or sit inside and have a quiet place to recoup....More

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.
