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

No matter what the weather Sophia's has a line outside the restaurant just waiting to get in on Sunday mornings. It is located in an indistinct house in a semi-industrial area on the corner of a busy street.....but don't let appearances fool you. They serve what I consider the best breakfast in the City of Buffalo. High quality food that... More

Ok, so, my family and I travel to the Buffalo area a lot for different events and shopping. Recently, we were in the area and wanted to try a different breakfast restaurant. Found Sophia's on Tripadvisor and it was highly rated. Easy to find by GPS, map or scents of smell. Now we get there and there is a large... More
