Never say never

I used to frequent this place often until a few bad experiences turned me away for the past few years. I have since tried it again, and I can say with confidence that I now try to stop by for a chicken pesto sandwich and a Vermonter (a latte made with real maple syrup) whenever I have an... read more

One of the best places in Northampton for breakfast and brunch. Regularly voted "Best in the Valley" by our local paper, there are long lines to get in on weekends. Their corned beef and hash is one of my favorites, but so is everything else. The building was the home of Sylvester Graham, vegetarian and inventor of the Graham Cracker!... More

Homemade foods, went for lunch and had a turkey BLT club which was delicious. Saw that they had homemade corned beef hash for breakfasts among other things. Very good food, and it gets crowded quick.

We waited around 45 minutes to eat - everyone raves about this place so not sure if I just picked the wrong thing on the menu. I got lox and eggs and it was mediocore. Not sure any breakfast place is worth that long a wait.

Make sure to bring your appetite! The portions are extra large, and it is difficult to finish. The orange juice is terrific!

Breakfast with friends should be a warm and wonderful time. Not at Sylvesters if you have a soy allergy. The kitchen would not accommodate a soy allergy and could only provide me a hard boiled egg and greens!! They said they didn't have any other oil...even when on our table was olive oil! I'll never recommend anyone to go to... More

We have been eating here for years. It is a comfortable atmosphere and the food is great. The BEST banana bread french toast ever. Love huevos rancheros too. Servers are great and the coffee is good. The only difficulty is often the wait to be seated; particularly Sat or Sun breakfast. It speaks well of the popularity of the place.... More

Started coming here in the 90s and it's still my favorite place for breakfast in Northampton. I love the Huevos Rancheros best!
