Read all the brilliant reviews on trip advisor so had to check out the breakfast here. We were one of two families in the cafe. Lovely little spot, clean and cute. The waitress was super friendly but the food is a little overpriced and disappointing. I ordered the scrambled eggs which were so overcooked, they were inedible...I didn't send them... More

Just moved to Delaware and living in Newark. On a lark, found this cafe one Saturday morning for breakfast. Family owned spot that is quite cozy. Sinclair's quickly became one of those places that we just had to visit again, and again and became our regular Saturday morning breakfast spot. The food is "diner food" but with a flair. Wheat...

Sinclair's is a favorite of ours. Cozy, clean, friendly staff, great chef. We visit a couple times a month. Mostly for breakfast which is always excellent. Daily specials are available too. If in town, check it out, free parking behind the restaurant as well as metered street parking. Only open for breakfast and lunch. Highly recommended!!😊

Made an impromptu visit to our daughter at the University of Delaware on Mother's Day. We didn't have brunch reservations and it was impossible to get into many of the restaurants on Main Street but I had read about Sinclair's Cafe online. We were able to walk in and get a table right away. Soon after we were seated, more... More

I've been to Sinclair's café many times over the years for brunch with friends. We love the variety and wholesomeness of the brunch menu. There are lots of healthy and vegetarian-friendly options on the menu. I also love the tea and coffee options they have! The café has a relaxed, homey atmosphere. I would recommend going as a small group... More

I've been going to Sinclair's now for just a few months, but I'm glad found such a pleasant little restaurant for weekend breakfasts. The menu is unique in that they offer natural fresh ingredients in their homemade recipes. The pancakes are very good and come with a variety of fresh fruit options. There is usually a special french toast of... More

Great place for breakfast. Three people in our group and everyone was thrilled with their food. Poached eggs on english muffins with all different things on top. Swiss cheese and spinach was a favorite for us.
