Go to the Sidewalk Cafe right now. I mean it. Take this newspaper and read it there while you enjoy the food and courteous service. Hip, modern and airy, the Sidewalk Cafe faces the corner of Glenoaks Boulevard and Highland Avenue. Outside are many tables facing both streets for newspaper reading and animated conversations. Inside are dark wood tables, a nook with couches and overstuffed chairs, and many people happily hooked up to the Wi-Fi. The menu is first-rate and fun — sandwiches, salads, pasta and pizza.
