Just reporting in... went to Northampton this morning and tried Sylvestor's - didn't get in, but I tried:) Crowded. I've eaten there before but this is the second Sunday in a row I got denied and would have had to wait for 30 plus minutes for a seat. Love the food and menu.

I ended up eating at a little diner that resembled a train by the depot. This is the second time I've eaten there. And for the second time, I have to say the wait/service is as bad as it gets. The reason is they have one cook and one waitress. Last time I went I promised I'd never go back having waited an hour for a simple omelotte. This time I only had to wait forty minutes for some eggs, bacon and french toast. The prices are reasonable and the menu is cool but I don't think I'll ever go there again because the wait for food or even to order is absurd. I think locals go there due to the low prices and everywhere else is so crowded. Anyone else feel the same way about this place?

Afterwards we walked around and got Mimos Pizza for dinner (home of very large slices). I was tempted there by some talk on this web site and yes, they are huge slices and pretty good to boot.
