Very tasty!

Husband and I stopped here while we in the area. We ordered bananas foster crepes, strawberry crepes and Albanian sausage and eggs. Everything was delicious (yes, salt and crushed pepper does make sausage even better!). We will be back for dinner sometime and for sure breakfast!

During a 2-day stay in the Madison area, I found Sofra Bistro. Located in a quiet neighborhood, the food and service were great. They have a popular special on the menu, but I recommend the "Sampler," for breakfast.

I have been to this restaurant before for dinner and it was lovely. This was my first time here for breakfast. It's really lovely if you can sit outside if there is a beautiful breeze. I had their egg special which was two eggs, their special Romanian sausage which is delicious and his pork free and potatoes with some sourdough... More

In this age of chain restaurants and the Madison area domination of many restaurants by the "Food Fight" group (i.e, Hubbard Avenue Diner, etc.) this is a gem of a find. We used to live in Madison and would often visit Sofra Family Bistro for breakfast,lunch or an occasional dinner. When we were back in the area for a brief... More

We had lunch at Sofra and enjoyed it very much. I had the Ruben sandwich with black beans and rice soup. My wife had a Greek Chicken Salad that was excellent. We shared a slice of Rasberry cheese cake for dessert. The service was very good.û

I've eaten here multiple times, primarily for breakfast and lunch, with small groups and large groups. Each time the food has been consistently good, and service prompt and friendly. I would definetly recommend eating here!

The gyro and eggs breakfast is by far the best breakfast around Middleton. I've eaten this probably 10 times and it's always been excellent. When I bring family or friends they enjoy their meal equally as much. I can't go five stars because I've never eaten lunch or dinner here.

This little spot in a downtown area of Middleton was a big hit for breakfast. We loved the local feel, the friendly vibe, and the delicious aroma and flavor found within. I had the breakfast skillet with Albanian sausage, potatoes, and peppers. The sausage was seasoned perfectly with the addition of cracked red pepper and coarse grain salt. The potatoes... More

I regularly have breakfast at Sofra. I recommend their Albanian Sausage Platter, but they have several outstanding menu offerings. Pleasant setting, pleasant staff, cheerful place in the morning. 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
