We've been to Sofrita now several times over the past year. It is always a very nice atmosphere on Ave. Of The Fountains. Their Happy Hour specialties, 7 days a week, are great. Nice service too.

We had two lunches at Sofrita. Both were very good. The food was abundant, the service excellent and the ambience inviting. I'll state up front that I prefer a quiet atmosphere so the first time we were there it was extremely wonderful - no music on the patio. The second time we were there they started the music half way... More

While shopping at the Avenue of the Fountains I stopped for lunch at Sofrita. It's a small Latin style cafe with indoor and outdoor seating. The service was friendly and prompt. I had a BLT which came with a side of beans and corn, and a cappuccino. The bacon on the BLT was a little over crisp for me which... More

We ate both a lunch and dinner meal at Sofritas. Both were good, but nothing particularly outstanding about either meal. Some dishes were better than others but it was difficult to discern which dishes to order ahead of time. I can recommend Sofritas but there is nothing about it that will knock your socks off.

Where to start? Okay, to be fair I didn't do a lot of research into the decision and from the pictures, it looked to have an authentic feel. Mistake numero uno. The service was mediocre at best. The only guacamole plate on the menu is "grande" and it's $12. C'mon man. The mojito did not make the grade (according to... More

My husband and I dined at Sofrita's during the Art Festival and it was charming dining outside at Sofrita's next to the art. We observed people studying the paintings near us and chatting with the artist. It seemed to be a "pet friendly" dining spot which was fine with me; my husband, not so much but he dealt with it....

Food is fresh and plentiful. Awesome breakfast tacos! Good entrees and salads too. Nice outdoor seating. 1 block from fountain and lake area.

We had a long wait for food but it was a busy day. I had $14 (ish) samon tacos. I got 3 or 4 tacos for the meal, they were good but not anything spectacular. They did not come with anything else. The outside seating area was pretty.

My 3 experiences here was just ok. While the food was somewhat fresh it is not authentic anything. The fusion of Puerto Rican, Cuban and Mexican spices and flavors ruined it for me. Having eaten authentic Puerto Rican, Cuban and Mexican food acorss the country including New York and Chicago this is not authentic anything.
