Steak pie

I love this place so much. The staff are friendly and services you with smiles. The steak pie is to die for, it's very tasty. The prices are amazing and affordable. I love the style of the place and it's very clean and you can get amazing views if your at a window seat

We only stopped here on the advice of the greeter in the car park (who was lovely) and it didn't disappoint. We only had coffee but the food looked and smelt amazing. The staff were great and nothing was too much trouble. Keep an eye out for it.

Arrived in Hawick looking for a cafe and as we walked over the Triviot River Bridge we saw the signage for Sonia's Cafe and Bistro. We were blown away by the warm welcome from the owner (Sonia) and her team. Great coffee! The best warm scone with raspberry jam and a great capichino. Had breakfast there the very next morning...

My partner and I decided to scour hawick for a little snack when we stumbled upon Sonia¹s Cafe & Bistro. It is situated upon the Teviot with an attractive and easy entrance. Upon entrance the dining area was quite packed, but we easily found a lovely seat for two right by the window. The view was glorious, a perfect view... More

My partner and I walked by this place and decided to go in since we were hungry. We weren't expecting much until we saw the wide range of food. I was so happy that we ate here. We both had steak pie and chips, the portions were just right. The food was amazing and tasted very yummy. I would definitely... More

Went to Sonia's looking for some good normal chunky soup. Elsewhere was all fancy soups. Hadn't been here for a while. Very busy but not disappointed. Luvly hot minestrone soup with 2 slices of homade bread and butter. Coffee very good too.

What can I say?! Fantastic food and great value for money along with great service with a smile. Fantastic views of the river made the day complete! I'd happily return all the way from Edinburgh.

Lovely location, right on the river and easy access as there is a large car park just along from the cafe! The food is brilliant and great value! Myself and friends go nearly every Saturday for lunch as the food is brilliant! It's lovely for lunch ( I'd recommend the Sonia's Special pasta dish) dinner or just a coffee and... More
