Reviews for Cafe Sofra
by James W.
24th January 2013
Googled “Breakfast” and came across Cafe Sofra with a lot of good reviews. They definitely lived up to our expectations.
My wife had the blueberry pancakes which came with lots of fresh fruit and I had the baked beans which were stacked large enough to be a mountain.
Service was excellent and we were visited by both the owner and the waitress to see how the meals were.
We also enjoyed watching the TV showing different parts of Greece.
There were also children there and the whole place/staff seemed very kid friendly so cannot understand the previous comments.
Anyway, well worth a visit for both value and quality of food.Comment from gulten h. of Cafe Sofra 24/01/2013

We were told about Cafe Sofra by a friend and we have been grateful ever since. We consider that we know good coffee and we both agree that this is the best coffee we have had in Auckland. They play travel movies and good music so we can dream about holidays while we dine. The food is great and reasonably priced and the staff Alan, Gulten, Erwin and Yen are all very friendly and welcoming.
They always greet us and farewell us by name and have done so since the second time we visited. We travel over there about three time a week from West Auckland as we like the atmosphere (everyone seems to be treated like family).
As we go so often we often see families there with children (from babes in arms to teenagers) and they are all made very welcome. (they even get us a bowl of water for our dog). Thank you all

Love Cafe Sofra.
I apologise for not reviewing sooner as we do love to stop in here whenever we are in Browns Bay. It must just be that I get so busy on these days that I forget – so sorry!!
I cannot fault this place. Coffee, food, service – all fantastic.
It can often be so busy here at brunch time on the weekends that sometimes we have to make do with a takeaway coffee but that is by no means to their detriment!
I love to have brunch here and the eggs Benedict is always a winner with my husband. I love the creamy mushrooms!
You also have to try the Baklava – awesome!! You will leave wanting to go back for more.Comment from gulten h. of Cafe Sofra 30/05/2012

We have been coming to Café Sofra for about 10 years I think. The food, coffee and service have always been exceptional and everyone I have recommended this café to have also found it to be fantastic. I do take great exception to the anti-children comment below from Rose. Our first child was one when we started coming here (now ten) and our second a few weeks old (now four). We and our children could not have been made more welcome over this time than if Alan, Gulten and Erwin were family. A big five stars for Café Sofra.Comment from gulten h. of Cafe Sofra 4/05/2012

We often take the kids to Cafe Sofra on our frequent trips to Browns Bay. We have found the staff to be always friendly and accommodating. Fabulous breakfasts! Great coffee. We will definitely keep going.

A big thank you to Café Sofra for maintaining an excellent standard in every way that counts for “coffee and relaxation” over so many years. We have moved out of the area but we still visit regularly with our young grandchildren when we are in Browns Bay because the owners are so welcoming to us and our precious little folk. A big thumbs up from young Josh and Alex for the big smiles and the marshmallows that make their day, and from us for the big smiles and the awesome coffee that make ours!

While the Coffee was nice, i will never return after the man came up to us and told my son off for wearing shoes (he wasn’t jumping up and down he was sat down nicely looking through the gap in a wall to look at the water) he then watched us the whole time we were sat there. Don’t recommend if you have kids, as they obviously don’t want them there. Will never be going back!Comment from gulten h. of Cafe Sofra 23/11/2011

We have been regular customers of Cafe Sofra for the last 10 years.
The menu is varied, the food consistently great and the service attentive. It is a great place for either a superb coffee or really enjoyable food.
Highly recommended. And they are very family orientated.

I only went here as I had a voucher in the entertainment book……. but what a fantastic cafe, and after living 5 mins away, why haven’t I been here before!!! Lots of choices, including vegetarian…. well priced, delicious food…. value for money!! The coffee was superb…they roast their own beans. And the staff where lovely…helped my friend and I with our baby’s in their prams… no rude signs or disapproval! Excellent!!! Thank you.
