Four of us had breakfast here. Blueberry pancakes were great! Corned beef hash was ok but nothing special. Eggs were done well and the coffee was very good. Good inexpensive diner food!

Sylvia's is the place the Locals go, so don't dress up and don't expect to find a table right away. The food is prepared individually and with flair.

We decided to try a local place and weren't disappointed!! We all enjoyed our breakfasts, especially the home fries and kielbasa. I would definitely recommend.

When we go out to breakfast, this is where we go. It's kinda like "Cheers" everyone knows your name. This is very much a "locals" restaurant, The food is very good and if it wasn't, there would not be as many repeat customers.

This is a one stop shopping place where you can see a Doctor, have your hair cut, get dentures, and fix up your funeral. Seriously, on the outside, it looks funky, but in the inside, it is where everyone goes for good reason! Good food!!!!!!

Excellent breakfasts served all day, at least until afternoon closing. Helpful, competent waitresses and friendly fellow customers. Located in a mall with restrooms down the hallway. Delicious coffee comes with the wide variety of breakfast choices. We'll be back for breakfast.
