Spotlight on Sylvia’s: A Supernatural Coffee Bar

Step into a world where history and the supernatural converge, giving rise to the enchanting Sylvia’s: A Supernatural Coffee Bar in the heart of Eatonton, Georgia.

meet Sylvia

Sylvia, the benevolent ghost that graces the halls of Panola Hall, is a cherished figure in Eatonton’s local lore. Legend has it that Sylvia, donned in a white hoop dress, was on the brink of an unwanted marriage during the Civil War. Faced with a decision that defied societal norms, she chose to escape, climbing out of her window in a daring bid for freedom or true love. However, her fate took a tragic turn as she fell into a trunk, closing on her, and she was never seen in her human form again.

Her story has endured through time, becoming a captivating part of Eatonton’s history. In a charming twist, Sylvia’s spirit has inspired the creation of Sylvia’s Coffee, a supernaturally good coffee shop in the heart of the town. A visit to Panola Hall might offer a glimpse of Sylvia, with locals and visitors alike sharing tales of encountering the sweet and good-natured ghost in the second-story window.



From velvety lattes adorned with delicious add-ins to the bold simplicity of Caffe Americanos, Sylvia’s Coffee caters to diverse preferences. And did we mention it’s delicious? Owners (and your baristas) Michael and Diana, traveled to Italy to become certified baristas and they bring their expertise to every cup of coffee.

But it’s not just about the brews; it’s a local love affair. The baked goods, straight from Coasties Bakery in Milledgeville, Georgia, are the perfect companions. And the magic starts with coffee beans from Oconee Roasters in Madison, Georgia, and milk from a Newborn, Georgia dairy – supporting local while serving you the best.

Now, if coffee isn’t your thing (we won’t judge), you’ve gotta try our go-to non-coffee favorite – the Strawberry Smoothie. Or choose from a variety of hot and iced teas!
