Very nice!

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.

Sonia's is a great local cafe which always has good value for money dishes ranging from panins to pastas. The homemade steak pie is highly recommended. Friendly staff, nice atmosphere and nice views of the local River Teviot from the cafe.
