My wife and I had two breakfasts at the Sidewalk Cafe. Excellent breakfast (the basic breakfast) and good service.

I had eaten a snack up in my room so I had this huge biscuit grilled in butter and strawberry jam and some juice....it was wonderful. My daughter had an entire breakfast that she said was also wonderful and it sure looked mighty good!

Great food at very reasonable prices. Homemade soups daily, fish and seafood chowder on Friday's are a must. Excellent breakfast with a variety of options.

I don't usually eat breakfast in a hotel, but did here because of time constraints. Service was quick and efficient, and our waitress provided exactly the right amount of attention. I had the grilled biscuit with jam -- the biscuits are made in house and were delicious, with nice crisp edges from the grilling. I would definitely eat here again!

I was in town on business and wanted an early morning coffee before I hit the road. I stopped here because there was an open sign in the window but when I walked up, I couldn't get it. There was no handle on the door. I don't know if you can access this cafe from somewhere else but, if so,... More

They do serve a wonderful tea and soup and sandwich; located conveniently on the ground floor of the hotel. Hard -working waitstaff were polite....

Horrid food and service. Over priced. Slow service by a wait staff that could care less about you and your meal.

A quick breakfast? Not really... The service was slow and a bit chaotic. The staff weren't overly friendly. The food when it did arrive was average and a bit overcooked.
