4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

We had a quick breakfast here, we found the food wholesome and excellent. The service was friendly and the atmosphere was also good.

“Yummy food with a twist, quirky atmosphere, lovely service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Have been to Sotto on West a few times now and after the visit today realised they deserve a review.

This is a great little cafe in the back streets of North Sydney. The atmosphere is great - some really cool graffiti on the wall, light shades made from teacups and teapots - along with tables out along the street. Nice vibe.

The place was pumping as always when we went in today, just managed to squeeze into a corner table. Even so, the staff were bubbly and friendly, really attentive.

The food is always great and usually has a twist - for example had the eggs benedict with spicy pancetta and a passionfruit and coriander hollandaise - something different, was a little unsure of the combo but my adventurous spirit kicked in and it was delicious. All the dishes have interesting names too.

Definitely a winner for a nice brekky/lunch. Two thumbs up.

“North Sydney groove”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013 via mobile

Mostly great coffee with cute service really fab food from this great local These guys have the right mix without taking themselves too seriously. Outdoor tables and daily newspapers not to mention the freshest muffins push this cafe above the usual. Try it.

“Creative with ingredient used in breakfast, looks better than it taste.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Great coffee
Breakfast looks great, very creative use of ingredients that are not usually found in breakfast (e.g. Chives and sweet chilly sauce on eggs). Unfortunately the gamble didn't work, it did not taste that good.
One staff in particular was not very polite, not sure if she realised it either.
