In the quaint little dining room of Sidewalk Bistro, dark wooden tabletops are arranged along a black-and-white checkered floor. Small booths line one wall, and a long counter stretches along another. It's dark outside, but that doesn't stop a server from emerging from the kitchen with a plate stacked with fluffy blueberry pancakes.
Comforting breakfast foods are something most people crave no matter what the time, so Sidewalk Bistro serves them all day, in addition to a massive menu of lunch and dinner options made from scratch. Half-pound burgers and Southern-fried catfish vie for attention with breakfast tacos and grits—all of which threaten to completely eliminate appetites before slices of French silk pie arrive.
Boasting an all-natural yogurt that’s Kosher-certified and rich in probiotic cultures, YogurtBliss serves a desert that’s equal parts healthy and delicious. The yogurt is served by the ounce in 12 different low- and non-fat flavors, while a smorgasbord including dozens of different fresh fruit and candy toppings gives customers myriad yogurt-customizing possibilities.
Le Peep's focus on breakfast and lunch stems from a decision made more than 40 years ago, when Buddy and Rhoda Waldman opened The Village Pantry in Aspen, Colorado, and—not wanting to miss a half day of skiing—would close the kitchen each day before noon. The duo would continue to tinker with their concept, stare at it through a novelty-sized microscope, and change its name before it eventually migrated to Texas.
Nowadays, the kitchen staff perpetuates the breakfast-crafting tradition by offering omelets, eggs benedict, skillets, and build-your-own pancake options that use ingredients such as walnuts, bacon, pineapple, and chocolate chips. Traditional dishes are augmented with unique twists, such as the Gooey Buns, english muffins broiled with brown sugar, cinnamon, and almonds and served with a signature side of Mom's Sassy Apples. During midday hours, a variety of salads, burgers, and sandwiches parades out of the kitchen accompanied by smoothies, juices, or Mother Parkers coffee. Le Peep's catering service delivers breakfast and lunch fare to homes, events, or filibustered neighborhood-watch meetings.
