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!

To our valued guests:
Our mission has always been to welcome our guests and provide a memorable dining experience in a clean and safe environment.
With the COVID-9 virus topping the news, we want you to know that we are making a few changes in our restaurant to help you maintain your health and allow you to feel safe going out to eat. Being cooped up is no fun. And while it may seem like the only option, we want to assure you that we are taking extra precautions so you can get out of the house, take a walk on the beach, eat your favorite meal and feel comfortable when you do.
We are monitoring the situation and the CDC’s guidelines very closely. In addition to our normal daily cleaning, we have heightened sanitation measures including routinely disinfecting all surfaces, door handles, check presenters, computers, bathrooms, etc. We have removed 1/3 of our tables to create more space between guests. Tables will be set as needed and condiments will be sanitized after every use and given upon request.
Our team members will be continuously educated on the on the latest information regarding the coronavirus and the added precautions necessary during this time.
COVID-19 Facts there is no evidence that COVID-19 can be contracted from food if it is prepared properly. We have gone to great lengths to make you feel comfortable with getting out and feeling normal. We appreciate you and are doing everything we can to protect and serve you. Come join us for a meal at the beach, we look forward to serving you.
