Bill Sweete and Casey Bee opened Sidecar on College Street in 2007. Their goal: To offer high-quality food and outstanding service at reasonable prices.

Since opening, Sidecar Restaurant has become a core part of the College Street business community and has acquired a legion of loyal regular customers who appreciate great food, professional service and an urbane selection of wines and cocktails.

Summertime is especially lively at Sidecar when customers head for the back patio (one of the city’s best) for an outstanding outdoor dining experience.

Casey and Bill also opened their popular members-only bar, TTS (The Toronto Temperance Society), above Sidecar in 2010.

Bill Sweete

Bill Sweete began his restaurant career at a young age, mastering every station in the kitchen before moving to front of house. This experience made him knowledgeable and highly skilled in all aspects of the business.

For more than 10 years Bill worked in two of Toronto’s iconic, fine dining establishments – North 44 and Bymark – before opening Sidecar with his partner, Casey Bee.

Bill received a sommelier accreditation from George Brown College in Toronto to enhance his food and beverage skills. And to sharpen his business acumen, he earned an MBA degree from the University of Guelph in 2013.

His hardworking, innovative approach to the business helped fueled Sidecar’s success on College Street’s competitive restaurant row.


Casey Bee

Casey Bee earned his Bachelor of Arts degree (philosophy) at the University of Toronto in 2006, working as a barista and waiter to help pay his way.

He remained a waiter after university to learn more about a business with which he had become increasingly fascinated, and to sharpen his innate people skills. His last waiting position was with Acqua Ristorante (now closed) a long standing institution in Toronto’s financial district.

During his years as a waiter, Casey traveled extensively, acquiring an appreciation for food and drink in parts of the world as varied as India, China, Austria, Scotland and Russia.

In 2007, he opened Sidecar with his partner, Bill Sweete, working front of house where he specializes in taking care of guests.
