Creative menu and fresh food at a reasonable price. There are often lines and a long wait on the weekends, but there's good reason for that. It's a local landmark that is well worth a visit. Lunch is yummy too and less busy.

This is a wonderful place. Crowded but not overbearing atmosphere with very good NE food. Breakfast items are very good.

there may be a waiting line in the weekends, but it is worth waiting for. The breakfast menu has numerous items to chose from and the be asked goods are homemade and made daily.

Sylvester's is a gem, so be prepared for the worthwhile wait for a table. Three of us ordered different omelets, and we were all pleased. We got the fresh fruit for the side, and it was sweet and truly fresh. The service was prompt and...More

They accommodate gluten free diets nicely. Re- comment on the wait. It is a very popular restaurant. Getting there early makes it easy. I never go after 9am.
