Description: 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.

Such a charming experience. Lovely staff hustling atmosphere. Lovely food. Location is on street with easy access. Good spot to walk to and drop in with easy parking also within range. Good views on two sides. Inside and outside options.

Had a little time to kill and a little peckish too, popped into this popular vibey spot for a snack and drink. The waiters were good although the food and drink took forever. The price to portion size isn't great, it's an expensive outlet, but trendy and quaint, so you'll pay for that rather than the food, which was fine but nothing special.

This is one of my favorites in Cape Town. Its a very small restaurant in Vredehoek, but the vibe makes this place great, the food and drinks is also amazing! This is a great place for one on one dates!!

My wife and I read about it in a Bloomberg article. The restaurant is cute and intimate. It's great for a first date or an ordinary one. Our meal was delicious and our server, Vava, was so sweet and energetic!

The cutest little gem on the side of the mountain.
It's tiny but doesn't dynamite come in small packages!
I could never recommend just one thing here, you won't go wrong with whatever it is you choose!
A hidden gem very much frequented by the locals of the area.
Love it
