This past weekend we stopped at Side Street Cafe to have some breakfast after visiting the Dog Beach down at Newport. This is a simple joint on Newport Boulevard with indoor and outdoor seating.
They had a very eclectic menu that was full of home cooked goodness. I ordered the Texas Scrambled, which had grilled onions, potatoes, and eggs topped with their homemade chili and cheese. This was a very hearty dish. I really liked their chili. I would get it again.

Kim ordered a short stack of Roasted Corncakes that are like pancakes with cornbread batter and jalapenos. The jalapenos gave the fluffy corn cakes a little bite. Just add butter and a touch of maple syrup and these were super tasty. We really liked the originality.

Side Street Cafe was simple but satisfying. I am looking forward to checking out many more places you would never think of. If you have recommendations in your area please share them at our Facebook page.
