While sitting at the new Sideboard’s well-worn communal “picnic” table, a pair of women sharing wine and french fries pause to admire a neighbor’s watermelon-mint cooler. The tall crimson glass, framed by sun and shadow, appears as a still life—a moment stolen from the swirling energy that defines Sideboard. This much loved café relocated in March, finding a bigger, brighter, and better functioning space in a nearby historic home. You still order at the counter, select mismatched silverware, and wait for consistently delicious dishes to be delivered. (The cooking style here might best be described as “grandma gourmet.”) Our favorites? Moist scrambled eggs with Feta and spinach; airy goat cheese pudding; tangy meat loaf packed into a soft Acme torpedo roll; and chicken salad with Point Reyes blue cheese, smoky bacon, and creamy avocado. The decor is rustic and quirky, and boasts a fountain-side patio. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily.
