Another busy place in Airlie but the food came out reasonably quick given how busy they were, and was always very tasty. Ate breakfast, lunch and dinner here over our stay.

We had breakfast here and it was yummy! The eggs were fresh and free range, the bread tasty and crunchy. The coffee was delicious, I would recommend having breaky here, the prices were reasonable and the location great.

We had dinner here. Staff were very friendly, food choices were a bit limited and the food was acceptable. Prices were average. I would not go here as a first choice.

Good spot for some lunch on a hot day. Very reasonably priced for a toasty if that takes your fancy. Other main meals available. Views of the sea.

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.
