“Consistency is best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

I've been living in Bangor for a short while now, and go down to Ellsworth usually once a week for work. Since I've first tried this, it's practically the only place I will eat at when I come down. It doesn't seem like it would be anything special at first glance, but good portions, clearly fresh food, and friendly service that makes me feel welcome, makes Sylvia's my all around favorite place to eat any time of day. I recommend any omelet, or for lunch an over the top turkey club with the best onion rings I have ever had!

“Local Diner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Hustle and bustle of a local diner. The food is okay and well priced. A good place to meet friends for breakfast or lunch.

“A great place for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

My wife and I have always been very satisfied when ever we have eaten there. We visit at least twice weekly for breakfast and have not been disappointed. A very friendly staff, in fact, it is a cozy and friendly place to visit.

“Breakfast Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

I enjoyed breakfast at Sylvia's twice during my week stay in Ellsworth. It appeared that the vast majority of the customers were locals & regulars. The breakfast of two eggs, choice of bacon, sausage, or ham, home fries & choice of bread is both reasonably priced and delicious. I ordered the ham on both occasions and heartily recommend it, as well as the grilled English muffins. Service was attentive despite the number of customers being served, they are hard working ladies.
