  • Try the chicken and waffles - nothing's better than breakfast AND dinner combined.
  • Chicken and Waffles! Chicken and Waffles!
  • Make you you get a slice of the Red Velvet Cake. This is how Red Velvet is supposed to taste. :)
  • If you need a little comfort food, head over to Sylvia's for some authentic, lip-smacking Southern soul food.

  • For coming on 50 years, Sylvia's Restaurant has been the locus of Harlem's soul food scene. The weekend brunches jazz on Saturdays, gospel on Sundays are especially popular.
