I often grab food from here on my way home. I also order for delivery. I really love the service at this establishment, the food is always hot and delicious and for all of the customers that are trying to grab something and go quickly...this place is great! They take your orders quickly and you're in and out of there... More

Try Sophie's. Probably a small wait for a table at lunch hour. Stop by after 1 and you should get in right away. Offers take out and table seating. Pernil sandwich (picture) with a slice is fantastic. Get the 'slice' option with your sandwich for $1 for Fried plantains and sauce. Worth it. The guava and cheese Empanada was heavenly.

We recently discovered this little Cuban food heaven while visiting NYC. The place is not fancy but has the best Cuban specialties around. Tried the meat, chicken, guaya and cheese empanadas for breakfast, it was a nice treat. We went back for lunch and dinner the following days. The place is clean and the service is prompt and attentive....Prices are... More

One of the treats about a visit to NYC is the abundance of cuban cuisine venues. Sophie's is great. Very casual. Can order at the counter for take out. My friend and I opted for a table. Ordered the roast pork. Yum. So moist and flavorful and a plate ful. Ordered the chickpea salad (great) and beet salad (so so)... More

If you are in a mood for Cuban food, this is perhaps the only place in downtown Manhattan for some good rice and beans. I had the empanada special which included rice and beans, i twas filling and inexpensive. The espresso was good too. fast service.

Fabulous Cuban sandwiches. After a day of touring colleges in New York, we were exhausted and wanted to find an extremely casual place to grab a quick dinner without spending a lot of money. We stopped at Sophie's for sandwiches and plantain. They were awesome. We highly recommend you order your sandwiches "twisted" for a truly incredible flavor. This was... More

I just love their pernil and beef stew! Yummy! The portion size can feed two (love it). Staff is fast and focused on their job. Place has enough seat for a big group. They also have day specials, don't forget to look at the chalk board.

Staying in Financial District

Neighbourhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
