Nice Breakfast Experience

Having heard about this spot from many people we finally made it here for breakfast on a recent visit. Sophie's is a kitschy, unique experience with cool decor, friendly prompt service and good food. Definitely worth a visit!

It was a very cold Sunday morning and I was hungry. I think it had gotten down to minus digits the night before so it was a difficult decision to venture out for food. Glad we did. It was packed inside and we did not feel like waiting for a seat so we braved the cold to sit outside under... More

Everything about our lunch here was lovely. Great waitress! Friendly and attentive without being intrusive, ready with advice on the menu, and didn't skip a beat when I asked for gluten free toast with my order of the light breakfast. Whatever bread they use, it was really good! The eggs and bacon were cooked to perfection, and the bowl of... More

We visited Sophie's for a big breakfast. Big pancakes with fruit and free refill coffee hit the spot. There is loads of retro Americana / Canadian items and art on the walls and it is a nice neighbourhood diner.

My Niece and I are on a quest to find the best breakfasts in the world, not necessarily the fanciest, not the costliest, just really good food, really good service and a cool atmosphere. Sophie's is great value, all around!

I've heard great things about Sophie's, and it didn't disappoint. Come here for brunch whenever I have the time, the portions are pretty large and the food is tasty. Sunday morning mimosa's are a must! There is usually a wait outside the restaurant, but I've never waited more then 20 minutes and Sophie herself usually comes out and offers you... More

I went to Sophie's with friends back in November, and had been there once before both times for breakfast. Both times it was great, with my preference being the deluxe veggie omelette over the eggs. I had eggs over easy this past visit which were a bit underdone for my taste (white was runny), however, my server friend told me... More

I'd heard good things about the breakfast at Sophie's Cosmic Cafe, however I went for dinner and the burgers didn't disappoint. Portions size was excellent with a good price. Had lots of option for my vegetarian friend. Friendly staff and the cafe is decorated crazily, an attraction alone. Would definitely recommend!

This diner has been here for years and is well worth the trip out of downtown, especially if you're visiting Granville Island. It's a fun and colourful diner with all the usual diner fare. Delicious food and great value.

Wonderful fresh well prepared food. I could have lunch at breakfast - not a breakfast person😊 we always buy bottles of Sophie's hot sauce to last us until our next Vancouver visit.
