    This place is the best of both worlds. Great brunch menu, fantastic dinner menu (burgers are spectacular) and for those over 21, the most SENSATIONAL spiked milkshakes are out of this world!

    They used to have five burgers with crazy names. They've since simplified it down to just "the Sidewalk Burger", but you can still pick your own adventure with additional toppings. Great fries too.

    Service is pretty consistently negligent at best, but it's worth it for the delicious food and cocktails, great happy hour, stellar music, free wifi, fabulous open mic Mondays… the list goes on.

    Always amazing. My old band played here several times and this was my first time doing the Monday open mic. If you check in on foursquare you get a free soda or beer!

    Their legendary Monday open mic has hosted a slew of now famous artists! The Undisputed Heavyweights played their first show here, which lead to the first Family release. Try the Sweet potato fries!

    The new consulting chef Felipe Donnelly of the pop-up series Worth Kitchen kept the open-face tuna melt and a version of the Israeli-style schnitzel, but eliminated some of the fried items. Read more

    Sidewalk Cafe’s high quality of live entertainment is coupled with a healthy mix of whiskey and merriment. Enjoy the 2-for-1 happy hour special until 8pm, and $9 beer+shot combo deals afterward. Read more

    Their spiked milkshakes are great!! Get the pumpkin milkshake - it's Molly's Pumpkin Liqueur with vanilla ice cream. Perfect.

    Great food but horrible service. If you're in a rush or are bothered when your food comes out wrong the first (and second) time, skip this place. Delicious veggie burgers w great toppings, though!

    Great spot for brunch. I'm sure other times are good too. Strawberry milkshake will not help u lose weight but god damn it is good.

    I love their huevos rancheros for brunch. Good special with coffee and 1 brunch drink. Also, the burger!

    Sidewalk Cafe is a great spot any time of day- lunch, happy hour, or night life! Check in often for deals, like 2 for 1 drinks and other specials.

    The price is right at Happy Hour with $3 and $4 drink specials. Service is awesome and really friendly. As the name suggests, sit on the sidewalk.

    My girfriend enjoyed her blueberry pancakes but I would say my breakfast melt was so- so. They fail to tell you the eggs are runny.

    Came here for a show and the waitress was totally obnoxious. Pestering us to order and such. Anyways, food was good/cheap. Nice atmosphere, sit by the window if you can.

    Check the chalkboards. Their waitresses don't know what's on tap nor what their house wine is!
