Convenient to University of Wisconsin-Madison Campus. Ample parking gratis. Inexpensive. Very busy on Sundays after church - better go mid-week.

We stopped here for a family breakfast, after looking for something a little different. This place can get busy on a Sunday morning so you might have to wait but there is good parking nearby. There is a lot of breakfast fare on the menu with skillets, classic egg and meat plates and sweet items too (recommend crepes). They serve... More

We went to Sofra for Sunday breakfast after church because we heard it was a good place. The place was busy and starting to fill up. We were greeted, seated, ordered our meals and waited. As always, my wife requires a special needs diet.....no salt. The waitress said it was no problem. When we were served, my wife's eggs florentine... More

So heard good things about this place. Ordered Gyros- tasty but only three thin slivers of onion served with the gyro--- so we asked for a little mor onion and a bit more sauce.....why have a gyro without onion? So they brought out a thin slice on a plate and probably a half ounce plastic cup of sauce. Surprise! They... More

This is one of our regular stops in Middleton, WI. And for good reason. The menu has varied options, American Mediterranean and Albanian for all tastes, including vegetarian. The staff is always welcoming and the place filled with people who enjoy good food at a reasonable price. We will be back!

Nicely decorated ambience. The staff is friendly and attentive. I had the Sofra’s Bistro Burger, and I had their wedding soup which was delicious with nice pieces of shredded chicken. The burger has a patty made from their own family recipe of ground lamb, ground beef and spices, served on a steak roll, with onions and tomatoes, it was very... More

We had a very good dinner here. The food is very good, atmosphere is nice and service is good. Prices are also very reasonable. Several of the dishes are similar to Greek food using things like lamb, feta, and grape leaves. We enjoyed our food. I would not hesitate to eat here again.

The incredible thing is they will make your breakfast customize in exactly the way you desire.

A SOMEWHAT LIMITED MENU BUT UNIVERSALLY EXCELLENT FOOD. Service and atmosphere are excellent and the price is a real bargain. I enjoyed the choice of obtaining breakfast-type food any time I wanted. The ethnic menu is outstanding.
