Sofos carries everything from pasta to meatballs. It is so good at a having wonderful specialty items that my Italian son-in-law shops there and takes home food in a cooler for his father. It is small but packed with wonderful speciality items.

I drive more than three hours to visit my daughter and shop at Sofo. Amazing selection of cheeses, salami, butchered meats, olives and salads. I usually get Sofo salami, feta cheese and Italian sausage. Breads and desserts are great too. Plus, they have a small but interesting collection of wines. I love family-owned stores like this, and think you should... More

Two of us shopping. Love the products and prices. Pleasant employees in the Deli and Bakery. BUT upon entering in Dairy Dept. an employee was stocking moved out of the way, but stood there shooting black looks at us.. Then we checked out I had a large amount of items. The Clerk said "Could you get some of that stuff... More

Sofo's, you always have what we need when cooking homestyle recipes. The downside being that we have to purchase certain items (usually sauce) in larger quantities than needed. Keep doing what you're doing, I think we just need a bigger family ;)

You have to watch for the weekly sale items for the best deals. I find some things just about every week to try or to "stock up" on. When they're busy, take a number and people watch while you look around. Check all the things offered from the olive station. The folks behind the counter a pretty proficient and friendly... More

I find the exterior of SOFO very misleading. It looks almost like bulk-foods grocer. However, inside it is a great little market. I have stopped in a few times now and everyone is really helpful. Excellent bakery with great discounts on day-old items. Great place to buy pre-made pizza crust (uncooked) and high end pizza toppings. My husband and I... More

We love shopping at Sofo's. They have everything you need to make an Italian dinner. Their pizza crusts and ingredients make it very easy to create homemade pizzas. The bakery is excellent - especially the pane, ciabatta, and Italian bread and rolls. The meat and deli counter is also very good, stocking a large variety of Italian meats and cheeses.

Specialty grocery with Italian emphasis. Fresh pizza crusts, sauce, meats and toppings here. Great butcher shop, bakery and wine selection. A real gem!

The last several times I have shopped at Sofo's I have been disappointed with their service at the meat counter. The store was not crowded, just 2 people in front of me, but they had only one person helping customers. Needless to say it was a slow process. Need to hire more staff to help serve the customer. I believe... More

Sofo is basically a mini Italian grocery store. It has the best pizza sauce and we always stop by there to stock up. They offer pretty much any Italian thing you could want including wine and beer. They've got a great meat counter and bakery. If you want to build your own pizza, they have all the supplies for you... More
