In 2015, Dr. Tracey Flemming realized just how unhealthy the food options around Sumter, SC were during training for a body building competition. Upon voicing this to her trainer at the YMCA, Missy Corrigan, Missy had the wonderful idea for Tracey to open her own restaurant. As the idea began to be born, Tracey has done all of her research and work herself to make the idea come to life. The Sidewalk Cafe opened November 2017. We have adjusted and adapted to bring different options to our community.
We are transitioning to a macaron bakery. What is a macaron? A macaron is a French pastry, which was thought to have been brought to France by Catherine di Medici and her pastry chef in 1533. You don't have to go to Paris to taste a home made macaron. At The Sidewalk Cafe, we bake our macarons from scratch on site and fill them with our buttercream frosting. They are simply amazing!
