Friday night Sofy’s had a special corn beef and cabbage dinner. The place was sold out and the dinner was excellent. Even had green margaritas! Lunch and dinners are special here. You must try this place.

Wow! Best lunch I’ve had in a long time. The sangria was perfect accompanied by a tenderloin open faced sandwich...delicious! Not one thing to complain about. Will be going back again and again. Fresh, healthy & friendly.

What a wonderful experience. While Sofy prepared our incredible meal, her daughter served the tables. Small, quiet, intimate, downtown location, great decor. Our food was prepared and presented beautifully. Enjoyed bloody mary and mimosa. Wonderful service, great food, great value. Can't ask for more.

A fantastic spot to sit, chill, and just watch the world go by while enjoying really great food. Completely un-rushed, sit and enjoy breakfast, lunch or diner. Local fare at local prices.
