I love there chicken fried steak, it's the gravy that takes it up a notch. Tip: Order your breakfast potatoes deep fried with a... More

For access: There is one Handicapable parking spot. The entry is at ground level with outdoor and indoor seating. Bathrooms are quite spacious. Climate control is right on, not too hot, not too cold. The food is fantastic. My favorite is the Eggs Benedict. Their Hollandaise Sauce is the best I've tried. My family likes the skillet meals. Friendly staff.... More

I've been coming here for years. I enjoy their pecan waffle. Service is always excellent. People are friendly.

What a fantastic cafe! My sister's family and I visited on a beautiful Sunday. We were sat quickly, greeted nicely and served promptly!! The food was delicious! My nieces both had the Strawberry Waffles- us adults all had a variety of egg dishes. They were very healthy proportions- and delicious!

We randomly went here as out-of-towners trying to find a breakfast place that didn't suck. We hit the jackpot! ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS. Flavorful, fast service, and wide menu options. You can always judge a place by their biscuits n' gravy and theirs is world-class. The three of us lamented that we were not in town another day or else we would... More

I had never heard of this place till my coworker mentioned it to me. Definitely hidden but for it being a Monday, it got packed rather quickly! We were attended quickly, and enjoyed some freshly squeezed OJ while we waited for our meals. I couldn't decide amongst all the tasty options they have, but I went with the strawberry French...

When I ask my kids what they want to have for breakfast or lunch, they always want Side Street Cafe. My favorite is the French dip. My kids love the waffle combo. The service is fast, the food is delicious, and the atmosphere feels like home.

Went here for lunch with clients on a recent business trip (per their suggestion). Very friendly little café with a local feel. Service was quick, as was the food. Menu is very good and portions are generous. Nice place for quick lunch (all day breakfast menu too) and very relaxed atmosphere. I would not have known about it at all... More

Started a few years ago in an industrial park to meet unmet needs for breakfast and lunch treats, the Side Street Cafe has grown in popularity to draw in "those in the know" from a much wider area. On the weekends when the industrial park is closed, this place is still going strong. Big menu with plenty of comfort food,... More
