Sidewalk Café vs. Tables & Chairs

A Sidewalk Café is defined as fenced-in open-air seating located on a sidewalk directly adjacent to a business. A Sidewalk Café allows for food and beverages to be served outside the establishment through seating that is used exclusively for the business’ patrons.

Tables & Chairs areas are created by setting tables and chairs outside and adjacent to a place of business, similar to Sidewalk Cafes; however, Tables & Chairs areas do not offer table service, and are available for public use. They also utilize end barriers rather than fencing.

For a complete understanding of the requirements for each permit type, please review their program manuals (above).
