I read about Sophias on Tripadvisor so we thought we'd give it a try. I was shocked to learn that Sophia had never read a review about her place before. She used an Iphone to read them for the first time while we were there and was obviously pleased by the kind remarks. Everyone loves this place and it's easy... More

We spoke to the owner Sophie, what an engaging lady who cares about her customers. Listening to her talk to everyone in a genuine and... More

My husband and I got up extra early after an overnight stay in Buffalo to try Sophia's after seeing on DDD. The place is very homey, and the staff was so incredibly friendly. The waitress gave us suggestions on what to try and everything we had was amazing!! Great food, great prices, and easy to find made this an A+.

I had heard of Sophia's, but had never been. Made the 20 minute drive from Amherst for breakfast today and enjoyed it very much. Sophia's is nothing fancy, to be sure, but admittedly, it was much nicer than some other reviews had made it sound. The "hometown neighborhood diner" feel of the place made for a comfortable, relaxing meal. Our... More

We stopped on a road trip based on internet reviews and were definitely not disappointed. All the food was great from the homemade bread to the Italian sausage to the pancakes and crisp bacon. We will definitely go back if we are ever in town. Good places to eat with kids. Large portions so you can share.

Great prices and awesome home style breakfast foods. Amazing fluffy pancakes. Everything we had was good. The only bad thing was juice wasn't freshly squeezed.

It was crowded with an eclectic group of people who all seemed to be enjoying their food.Many of the wait staff kept stopping... More

Best breakfast in Buffalo, unpretentious, friendly - great diner food, very generous portions and prices that are a throwback to years ago (just like the decor). Sophia knows hospitality, made us feel very welcome and unhurried. The lines move quickly.

Husband and I ate here 4/13/2012. Apparently just reopening after a 2 week remodel . We weren't surprised by the outside, because it isn't much to look at on the out side. We walked in and it was full. A server found us a table for 2 and sat down. All kinds of food was being served, breakfast, lunch... Husband... More
