“Breakfast as Sylvia's”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

I eat breakfast with my friends at Sylvia's every Friday morning. The waitresses are amazing--they take good care of their customers and get along well with each other. The food is consistently good. The owner/cook is always pleasant and runs his cafe efficiently. Sylvia's Cafe is a great place to meet with friends or to bring the whole family.

“A place you must eat at when you come to Ellsworth Maine.”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Outstanding food and service. One of the last place you can get a home cook meal at a real good price. Rate at 10 stars

“Breakfast at Sylvia's”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

We are regulars at Sylvia's eating breakfast there most every Friday. The food is always good, and Pat, our server, takes very good care of us. It is really welcoming to walk in and have both Taylor and Pat know our "usual" and putting it on the table within moments!

“Breakfast/Lunch on the Run”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Have breakfast all day, sandwiches and dinners, and seasonal availability of Friday night suppers of Prime Rib and Fried Claims. Place where everybody eats, families and kids as well as the Senior Citizen crowd. This where people eat after Doctor's Office visits, business appointments, shopping, classes at the Ed Center or after church. Waitresses have been there for years and it is a friendly visit for everyone dropping in to visit with friends and other locals. Summertime brings a surge of vacation visitors looking to eat where the "locals" eat. Set up for small tables for two's or fours, with push-togethers for larger parties. Menu is varied with daily specials and reasonable prices. Can have a wait at peak periods (say Sunday at 11:00) but they do their best to get everybody in and out. Not fancy fare but good portions, hot, and more than enough to eat! Our regular stop after Church or when meeting friends for a quick lunch.

“Consistency is best”
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!
