Our clients love what we do for them

jane-photo-bw“It’s hard sometimes to pay others to build your own website. But I noticed a big difference in “home-built” websites and professionally built websites. I wanted the latter to help my business jump up to a higher level. I picked Eliana to (re)build my website based on her technical skills, aesthetics and openness about her process and pricing. She is calm, capable, creative and persistent.  I love my website! Others may be able to build websites but Eliana’s sense of aesthetics took my website to a new level. Thanks Eliana!”

marie-fiala“Working with Eliana Berlfein at Sidewalk Café Design for my website was a pleasure from start to finish.  Eliana is professional, creative, technically expert, and cost effective. Her website designs are clean, elegant, easy to navigate, and effective. Eliana did a great job of keeping in touch with me as the work progressed, raising issues as they came up, and responding to my comments and questions. She translated my somewhat vague idea of what I wanted into reality. I’m thrilled with my website and have received many compliments on it.”

WillCraig-thumb“Attention to detail and dedication to getting it right are an unbeatable combination when it comes to designing distinctive websites. Eliana delivers on both… and then some. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results.”

Will Craig – Author of Living The Hero’s Journey

“It was so easy working with Eliana in creating a website for my business. What seemed like a daunting task was actually exciting as everything came together. I had a general idea of what I wanted but she had the knowledge to refine it making it much more ‘user friendly’. Her sense of design was the perfect complement to my extensive content. She completely understood what I was trying to achieve and built the site to reflect what I wanted.

The true test has been the business it’s generated and the unsolicited positive comments I’ve received. Eliana also taught me how to change content so I can add updates and make changes easily. “

cindy-brown“I chose Sidewalk Cafe Design to design my Girl’s Guide to Swagger website because I could see that Eliana listens carefully to each of her clients and builds a custom site to fit their needs. Each website she works on has a different look and feel, but they share a common element – they are clean and clear and easy to use. I am really proud of the final Swagger website because it reflects action, vitality, and fun – key elements in appealing to the young women who are the primary audience for the swagger concept. It was a pleasure to work with Eliana to brainstorm how we could element our ideas most effectively on the site. Eliana worked with me to expand my original vision for the site. After only a few months, we have more than 2,000 visits to the website from 70 countries. I have that information because Eliana helped me set up Google Analytics to track the visits to the website. Having a professional-looking website and being able to quantify my audience is key for the next stage of my business – attracting the right publisher for The Girl’s Guide to Swagger book.”

Dave-Sheldon“I choose to have Eliana re-design my website because of the wonderful things I had heard about her work. Amazingly, she exceeded my already high exceptions! Eliana was exceedingly professional throughout the entire process. She asked clear questions, listened with a keen ear, promptly answering e-mails and phone calls, and went out of her way to make sure all of my questions were answered. The beautiful website she created for me is a testament to her artist talent and represents my business perfectly. After going live, the site immediately stared to generate new client interest and over the last six months my business has increased thirty percent. Thank you Eliana!”

Dave Sheldon – Certified Advance Rolfer

“Eliana of Sidewalk Cafe Design created a web site for my small business that beautifully reflects the tone I wanted to convey. From the beginning the site got rave reviews from clients and colleagues. What wasn’t apparent at first is the enduring strength of the Eliana’s design. Several years and updates later, I still love the site and find it beautiful, easy to navigate, and a fitting presentation of my business.”
