Breakfast is not my favorite meal but after visiting Sophia's, it could be. On a Thursday morning there was a line if that tells you anything. Staff was very friendly and food was wonderful.

One of those places that I've been wanting to go but just never did until last week. I seldom go out for breakfast since I usually make a hot breakfast for myself every morning but finally the time was right. I got there abt 10:45am on a Wednesday and got a table right away. Ordered my usual out to breakfast... More

I visited Sophia's a few weeks ago for the first time and liked it. I was able to grab a seat at the counter as the restaurant was very busy and there were about 10 people waiting for a table...this was a Friday morning. Western Omelette was very large and tasty, the homemade bread is excellent - home fries were... More

I have been to this location before but did not wait when I saw the line up. I did stay and am really upset with myself for not waiting the other times I had been. We were served by Sophia and you can see the pride she has in her restaurant and customer happiness. Thank you

Oh man, the bread. If you love nice slightly crispy, just baked, aromatic bread, this is where you go. While it has a multitude of lunch and dinner offerings, breakfast is when you go. Be wary line ups outside the door, and be prepared to wait. Great service but it could be a while to get a table. Authentic and... More

Food and service was great. Definitely a dive, but the food makes up for it. Service was friendly and quick. The Eggs Benedict is delicious - best Hollandaise sauce I've had in a long time. We waited 40 mins, so get there early or call ahead.

The breakfast here was great! We arrived at the restaurant at just the right time, at around 9:30 am on a Sunday. We had a 5 minute wait for a table for 4 people. We were served quickly with coffee and our order was taken within a few minutes of being seated. We had eggs, apple cinnamon walnut pancakes, bacon,... More

We were visiting Canada and decided to travel over to Buffalo, NY and upon me looking on the internet for a place to eat we found Sophia's Restaurant. Our waitress was very personable, very excited and energetic about telling us about the restaurant and what they are known for which I had already seen they were known for their fresh... More

The owner is fabulous! She is super-friendly. The food is very good and plentiful. Guy Fiero (Triple D) reviewed this restaurant not too long ago (there's a signed picture of his visit). What turns me off about this place is that you are not acknowledged by the wait staff when you go in and they are very crowded. They do... More
