The Sidewalk Cafe is "the best place to people watch on
Venice Beach" according to New Times Magazine. We have been featured in many
movies and commercials as well as in such publications as Sunset Magazine, LA Weekly
and many tour books. If you ever wanted to see Venice Beach, California, let us be your
front row seat!
A Venice Boardwalk landmark for 40 years, The Sidewalk Cafe offers fresh, high-quality, well-prepared food with generous portions. And all of our soups and sauces are homemade. The outdoor covered patio provides a beautiful view of the beach and ocean while street performers and an eclectic crowd continuously entertain.
Live acoustic music in the evening provides the perfect complement to dinner by the sea. Please call us at (310) 399-5547 or check our Events for music and upcoming events.
Also under the red and white awning you can find Small World Books, a wonderful independent bookstore. It is a great place to find out more about Venice. Small World Books offers a wide collection of literary fiction and poetry, and is frequently used as a resource for entertainment industry researchers.
Whether you come for breakfast on the beach, lunch in the sun, or dinner at sunset, you are sure to enjoy at The Sidewalk Cafe. Look for the red and white awning near the center of the Venice Boardwalk!
