We've been there a few times now and are always pleased with the food and service. Just off Main St, parking can be a bit dicey at times but there is a lot right around the corner. There's a bakery to the right and seating to the left. Servings are large and delicious with good strong coffee (always a plus).... More

We loved the big selection of breakfast/brunch foods here. Portions were generous and food was good. We appreciated that there were many gluten free options and the waitress made sure that they scraped the frying surface before making gluten free food.

Every time I am in Northampton I always have brunch at Sylvester. There is always a wait but I promise you it's worth it. Great brunch item ranging from simple to hungry people. Great brunch alcohol beverages & last but not least great coffee. You can also go to their cafe section and order it to go. See you next... More

Good basic fare with good service and reasonable prices. Clean. Just a block or so from Main St, meaning you can avoid the crazy congestion of downtown Northampton.

There was a hour wait for brunch today. That was fine and we walked around anticipating a really nice brunch based on the reviews. The food was very average. The garden omelette was some broccoli and other greens wrapped in pretty dry eggs. The steak and eggs were not good - a small piece of dry meat with a tiny... More

Sylvester's takes breakfast seriously; in fact, they only serve breakfast and lunch. Every menu item is fresh, many items are local, preparation is consistently good, servings are generous, and waitstaff are gracious (even when it's busy, which is often). As a slightly fancy hometown restaurant, it's got a great vibe. The restaurant occupies the home of Sylvester Graham, the early... More

These guys know how to put brunch together. The wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu items and food allergies. Husband got the chocolate chip pancakes... Yum, I got the Chop Chop salad... Wonderful! Interesting history, good food, locally sourced produce, we just loved it!
