I come here often on Sunday's so be prepared to wait if you come later in the morning as it gets crowded quick. However, the breakfast is well worth the wait. In my opinion one of the better places in town to have breakfast...their omelets are yummy

My friend Pam, her daughter catie and I were in town for a Mary Chapin Carpenter concert. catie attends U. mass and had heard really good things about "Sylvester's". She said it was a favorite of all the college kids in the area. Northampton is home to Smith Cllege and nearby U.Mass, Mt. Holyoke and others. I thought wee were... More

We went to Sylvester's mid-morning on a Monday. I was surprised at how crowded it was! I had the huevos rancheros; two eggs over a pile of black beans and a side of grilled cornbread. It was very flavorful and I really liked it. My husband had the Southwest Sunset Omelet and said there were too many onions and the... More

Sylvester's is the place to go to for breakfast in this area, the super friendly waitress made sure that we had plenty of very good breakfast. We ate pancakes and eggs on toast, a pleasure to go here again. I wish we had places like this in The Netherlands.

This is an amazing breakfast place with creative and equally delicious food. Such a great find that we were talking about it all day! The staff was so friendly, funny and helpful. In a fun, open environment. I'll be dreaming of the Farmer's Market Eggs Benedict tonight or perhaps the Pumpkin Bread French Toast with Apple Cranberry butter...

Three of us ate lunch at Sylvester's on a Monday and enjoyed everything about the restaurant, its servers and the food. One of our group took advantage of the all-day breakfast of eggs, bacon, home fries and toast and the other two chose sandwiches. Even though the restaurant was fairly busy the food was served quickly with hot foods hot... More

We waited in line 40 minutes on a Sunday morning for a table for two. We each got a specialty latte of the day, Pumpkin Spice. They came with a MOUNTAIN of whipped cream on top of the sizeable mug but the actual coffee when we managed to get through the whipped cream was only slightly above room temperature. I... More

Always a line should indicate service and food quality worth the wait. Unfortunately I have fell into this trap twice now, believing my first disappointing visit was a fluke. Sadly, my second chance for Sylvester 's was clear I again wasted my time and money. A wait of close to an hour resulted in another noisy, claustrophobic dining experience by... More

We needed a large table for a meeting, and the restaurant accommodated us nicely. Overall, the breakfast food is inspired and interesting; however, on several occasions (including this one), I received home fries that seemed stale and were not warm/hot. The coffee drinks are wonderful. In years ago, the staff was not so nice or welcoming. The staff of today... More

A Northampton institution, yet it still took us eight weeks to get here after moving here. It was great, and we'll be back. Four of us enjoyed Sunday morning breakfast. We seemed to just beat the crowd, waiting a mere ten minutes at 9:00am. By 10:30am, there was a REAL wait. Hot chocolate and hot apple cider were both great... More
