This is a wonderful place. Crowded but not overbearing atmosphere with very good NE food. Breakfast items are very good.

there may be a waiting line in the weekends, but it is worth waiting for. The breakfast menu has numerous items to chose from and the be asked goods are homemade and made daily.

I go here every year on my birthday for breakfast and Sylvester's never disappoints. Great coffee and even better food. Their specialty coffee drinks are not only delicious, but are served in big mugs as well. The service is usually pretty good but be prepared...More

This review is long overdue. Today was our fourth time having lunch at Sylvester's after a visit to Webs yarn store. I had the chicken melt and my husband, who usually has a salad, had the Monte Cristo sandwich. My chicken sandwich was excellent as...More

They accommodate gluten free diets nicely. Re- comment on the wait. It is a very popular restaurant. Getting there early makes it easy. I never go after 9am.
