Just had a yummy breakfast at Sylvester's while visiting my Smithie. I had hash and eggs with red potatoes that were excellent. My daughter had a broccoli and cheddar omelette. The corn bread was delicious. My Smithie had huevos rancheros which she said was perfect. They had the best balance if beans, spices, and salsa as well as perfectly cooked... More

The food here is not as good as the menu...I had high hopes, but the actual experience was less than desired. The food was just mediocre.

We had a wonderful breakfast here while visiting our granddaughter at Smith College. All the food was very tasty and well presented.

Love to come here whenever I'm in NOHO. Had a variation of the omelette with spinach, pesto and onions, no green peppers. Wanted no toast and had hoped for crispier home fries but no such luck, but tasty none the less. Friend had the huevos, which she liked, enjoying the runny eggs and the cornbread. They have the best coffee... More

This was our first visit to Sylvester's, and we thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday early afternoon here. The food was wonderful: pumpkin bread French toast, apple-chicken sausage omelette, butterscotch brown sugar latte - they all hit the spot, and the price was quite reasonable as well. The next time we drive through Northampton, we'll be sure to visit again!

The food here really is quite good, I must admit. However, the service is typically lacking. It can take a while to even get an order in with the waitstaff, and you often will have to wait a long time for the food to come to the table. When it does, it has sometimes been cold. Suggests it was just... More

We had delicious clam chowder and a Reuben sandwich for a quick lunch at this cute little deli-type restaurant off the busy Pleasant Street. Staff was friendly and efficient. Sit-down restaurant was on one side of the building and a bakery was on the other side. We were too full after lunch to try the bakery - I'd overheard another... More

There was a little wait for our table, but so worth it. Food was yummy and the price was great. Great breakfast options. The staff was very friendly and we had great service. This was walking distance to the hotel we were staying at.

One of the regions favored places for breakfast or lunch (no dinner, but see below), any day. Large menu, range of values (some items very reasonably priced). Veteran staff are very attentive; managers skilled. Can be crowded on weekend mornings; busy weekday lunch. Reservations for more than 2-4 make sense often. There's a small counter area with bar stools, but... More

Breakfast is served here all day and the menu has very interesting choices. We opted for lunch and the daily special Gazpacho soup appealed to both of us as well as the Reuben Sandwich. The soup had a great flavor but was too chunky for my taste. It should have been chopped finely or pureed to get the tomato, onion,... More
