The menu is unique and the food is always good. I would suggest avoiding the burgers as they are merely average, but the other items like the perogies and desserts are great. Makes a great Sunday drive and dine!

Over the 3 years we have been in Quesnel and hearing how good the food was, we finally got to Sylvia's ourselves. The food was not just good, it was great. Everyone had told us to try the perogies, and they were right. The best perogies we both have ever had, and this includes restaurants in Castlegar and Grand Forks.... More

I stayed so far three months at Sylvia's, in their camp ground. I must say that there is no competition and the owners take it for granted. My laundry was torn, I was told to go to town if I don't like it, laundry machine locked up my 4 one dollar coins, I was told there were only 3, and... More

Sometimes Sylvia's is a stop on the way to or from Nazko when I have to head out there for work. Other times, it's a destination itself for a motorcycle ride etc. Sylvia's has existed for many years (decades) and their menu and service hasn't changed much at all in this time. You can still buy excellent beef jerky on... More

My husband and I went for a drive with another couple on Saturday (three days ago). I had always wanted to try Sylvia's but this was the first time we were in the area without a planned meal. When we arrived no one greeted us and since there was a long full table full of people we decided to just... More

It's the only cafe for many miles. It's better than any other if you don't want to drive to Quesnel. No onions in the hash browns which may speak more about the customers (why do they put up with this!) than Sylvia. She's a hoot, btw.

Nothing fancy... just your typical road-side diner. Except it's not typical. Food's great. You can even get a turkey dinner with home-made cranberry sauce. And yes, it's real turkey. Not turkey loaf slices or anything like that. Good food, good quick service served with a smile. They also host an annual music festival! Very cool place.
