If you are looking for somewhere just to stop for a barista made cappuccino or latte, this is it. Really good coffee, really friendly staff, great decor.

I love coming to SideStreet Espresso. I feel like I'm part of the family when I'm here and I'm always very comfortable there just sitting for hours, sipping coffee drinks, and relaxing. The food is tasty and reasonably priced. Good music playing too! Just make sure when you go you bring cash!

This is a terrific and unique place that is an important part of daily life for many people who frequent it. The kindness and thoughtfulness of the owners George and Deb are valued as highly as the excellent coffee, snacks, soup and other items, and service. George's daily drawing , posting, and coffee special is a unique daily highlight. Lots... More

Nice little family run place with good food and coffee. Pastries, quiche, muffins, etc. - reasonable prices. Wife and I each had a different quiche and shared a large coffee for $15.

The owners are absolute dolls! Cash only! Located down town- so quick access to dozens of shops and other attractions. Best coffee! Good people. Good atmosphere.

We were staying at the Westmark with all the other people booked into the Holland America Noordam cruise. We had an early departure in the morning. By the time we got downstairs, the lobby was overflowing and there was a 1 hour wait for breakfast. We found this place and had the most delightful breakfast. The owner was so nice... More

Stopped by to grab coffee and a light/quick breakfast. Super cute place - small, quirky, and bright with lovely service. Great coffee - also grabbed a ham&cheese croissant and blueberry scone - I highly recommend both. I would suggest this laid back place over the more "breakfast" oriented sit-down places. Honestly - it was tastier ;)

Looking to take care of the espresso craving, just happened on this place - NOT pretentious, very low key, VERY friendly. Awesome levered old school espresso machine - VERY good espresso. Friendly staff - I stayed for two!
