Visited as a family of 5 and were impressed with the charm friendliness and value for money. Had a variety from fish and chips to burgers, spaghetti primavera calamari and chicken curry. All were pleased with the service and twinkle twinkle our waitress.

It's hidden high up in Vredehoek. The locals obviously know about it. To be sure to get a table, make a booking. Try to sit outside on a good evening, watch the sunset. Super. Food is fresh and great.

The Sidewalk Cafe is a great casual neighborhood eatery. We locals love it. The service is always with a smile and the food is good and so are the coffee & teas. Great for breakfast too.

This much-loved neighbourhood café offers guests a relaxing beach-house feel and sweeping views from the stadium to the harbour and beyond. Bright and sunny by day and warm and intimate by night, The Sidewalk Café has a wonderfully diverse clientele and many loyal regulars. Perfect for lazy breakfasts, leisurely lunches, sundowners or romantic dinners, this charming venue is disarmingly casual with just a dollop of sophistication. A place to take your mom on the weekend, your pooch after a sunset walk, your kid for a morning chino and your mistress on a Thursday night. With plug points throughout the store and free wireless during the day, the Sidewalk is the ideal place for that casual business breakfast or lunch. With several eateries on this popular neighbourhood strip, at night The Sidewalk Café becomes awash with locals and urban travellers alike. The menu is an eclectic mix of firm Cape Town favourites with something for even the most jaded palates.
