Authentic, delicious, thoughtfully prepared Greek food. The ambiance is pleasant and comfortable. Sophia's is staffed with happy, personable folk who obviously enjoy working together. The gyros will make you think you died and went to heaven already.

The decor, the ambience...well, it's not much. But what can you expect from a simple warehouse decor? But that's not what I went for. I've driven past Sophia's many times. Daily, for a few years. At the now location and where it started. I've thought 'I want to stop there some time and try it' but never had the 'opportunity'... More

We stopped in for lunch and both ordered the soup and Greek salad combo (approx $10 each) I got the lemon chicken soup and my companion had the clam chowder, They both were excellent. A large homemade breadstick accompanied our meal, we couldn't finish the breadstick and they gave us foil to take it home in. There were a few... More

THe food at Sophia's is awesome. They make homemade breads and baked goods that are to die for. Fun place to take a friend for breakfast or lunch. Good service, clean cafe, yummy food. What more could you ask for?

The food is great and the people are nice. I noticed some reviews state poor service, but it's a cafe--not a restaurant. Therefore, service is pretty minimal (at least in my experience with cafes). However, I always have a great time there. My water is always filled and my husband and I are always full and happy.

Pulled in on the spur of the moment, and we were really happy we did! Husband said the gyro was probably the best he has ever had. Since we've eaten them all over the US, including Tarpon Springs, FL, this is saying a lot! The kid that waited on us was very attentive & very nice. Sorry I didn't get... More

The salads are beautifully presented. Ingredients are fresh. They serve breakfast foods all day long. The menu is limited but the offerings are varied and super delicious. Ttry their fresh homemade bread with anything. It's to die for!

Was really disappointed in this eatery. Sandwich was lunch meat with a sauce---could have made it myself better and cheaper. Service as friendly but oh so slow ---waited 46 minutes on the sandwich. Not worth going back.

My family just stopped in just for lunch at Sophia's, oh my goodness what a hidden gem! I had the "Hot Gates", a hot chicken curry sandwich, with walnuts, cranberries and spinach on homemade wheat bread that was beyond incredible! I also had the clam chowder that I would have to say is some of the best chowder I've ever... More

The waiter completely ignored us. It was one of the worst experiences I ever had in a restaurant. The manager or cook finally came to our table, and comped the meal, but even that wasn't enough to make up for the appalling service we got. I would not go back or recommend it.
