This place in a residential neighborhood has been around for 34 years. It serves excellent breakfast/lunch meals at very reasonable prices. Our first time here we had a cup of tasty taco soup for $2.75 and an excellent brisket sandwich on rye for about $7. So many great choices in this very casual, friendly spot with dining inside and outside.... More

Have been going to Syb's West End Deli for years! Their food is freshly made there, and is delicious! I particularly enjoy their quiches, and my hubby loves their corned beef sandwich. Enjoy!

This is a NYC style Jewish deli. They offer gluten free bread and the best scrambled eggs I have had. The restaurant has a sweet outdoor seating area with a nice view of a quiet West End block.

Syb's is one of allentown's hidden gems for good old-fashioned deli food and sandwiches. Kathy, the owner, is such a friendly person as are her staff. always a smile and after our years of patronage they still recognize you. deli sandwiches are ample and delicious(I'm a fan of the sliced brisket, omg!). reasonably priced and their menu includes breakfast items,...

Syb's is old fashioned, to say the least. It's chaotic, understaffed, often crowded (very few tables). It's also always friendly and patient. And most important, it has great food. They've got lox. Not just the Nova, but the "belly" lox...the salted smoked salmon that has so much flavor it will overwhelm you. They've got homemade brisket...maybe a bit sweeter than... More

Stopped in on a Saturday for lunch/breakfast after driving by this place for more than 2 years. Ended up selecting the Middle Eastern Platter which was very tasty. My wife ordered the Reuben and thought it was very good. Facility is a bit rough, 6 small tables of outdoor seating and very small inside as well. Waitress was very friendly... More

Nothing changes here -- and that's the best thing about Syb's-- from the classically prepared bagels & lox and the excellent Reuben sandwich to the yummy rice pudding served by friendly longtime staff-- this tucked away spot is worth the hunt!

Nyc level kosher, A+ bagels & lox, excellent coffee, eclectic crowds & friendly staff. Good prices, down side strange hours & minimal tables so planning is a must

For the traveler looking for a dining experience, Sybs is Great. The atmosphere is quaint, the staff is very friendly, and they got great coffee. We came for breakfast, and guess what No Bacon! But alas my fellow traveller do not let you heart be troubled, the fried pastrami is off the charts! I was very delighted to try this... More

We stopped in for lunch, this past weekend, while dropping my son off at college. The service was friendly and attentive - Kathy even stopped by and introduced herself. The place is small and only has about 6-8 tables inside and about 6 tables outside. We all had different sandwiches - Corned Beef, Pastrami and Turkey. The menu is limited,... More
