Reviews for The Sidewalk Cafe

3.5 stars, to be exact. Though the server was good, she was solo and they could have used an additional person. I got “The Fantastic Chicken Sandwich” and hubby got the special “Philly Cheesesteak Quesadilla”. Mine was tasty. The chicken, however, was so thin that the sandwich was mostly the Kaiser roll and bbq sauce. Hubby’s was also tasty but the beef used was ground beef and not something we normally see in a Philly steak product. Atmosphere is nice and full review
20 min wait, but worth it. Large pitchers of mimosas. I had bloody Mary's. I asked them to make it dirty, she returned with a "briney" drink that had plump olives and was spicy. Yum. I had to order another. I had the cajun platter with blackened howe fried potatoes, spicy sausage, shrimp under 2 scrambled eggs, smothered in fontina cheese. The crowd is fun and cool and you have to be cause it's close. Small corner neighborhood "joint" pumping out huge food and drinks. Going full review
I came here for my birthday last year and remembered it being good, the drinks and fried food was what we had mostly ordered. This past experience will be our last. We were seated right away. It took at least 8 minutes to get waters. And we probably didn't get to put our orders in until we had been sitting for 20 minutes. Then our food took what seemed like forever. The sidewalk spaghetti came out looking like a lump of cheese. And my potato cakes were more like big blobs of full review
