We went here two days in a row, and may even go a third, because the food and service were outstanding. I loved the Albanian sausage skillet and Greek omelette (gyro meat).

This restaurant is a local favorite. Their breakfast is delicious and very filling. Service is always great, and the owners are very friendly

Starting with excellent, prompt service, this is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant. We love the breakfasts at Sofra, with many menu options and consistently delicious food, perfectly prepared. Be sure to try their homemade Armenian sausage! Sofra is a restaurant where you can have a conversation,...too -- unlike many diners, they have paid attention to sound reduction in their design. The service is fast, the servers are friendly, and the coffee is great.More

The eggs, hash browns and raisin toast are fantastic. The raisin toast is the best I've had anywhere. The restaurant is family operated and is a wonderful place.

We came here on a Monday afternoon during Covid so we were the only ones in the restaurant. Our server was great. I wanted to try some of the more daring Albanian menu items but my daughter (she's 9) had her heart set on sharing...an omelet with me. All our food was delicious. Some of us had food to take home for another meal but my boys ate ALL their sandwiches...they said the food was too good not to just eat it all. And then they had a stomach ache because it was too much!More

Terrific selections if you're vegetarian. My meal was one of the best I have enjoyed in Madison. My friend said her meal, non vegetarian, was infused with wonderful combination of warm spices. Decor is delightful. Staff very helpful in explaining each menu item that we...were considering. Will be one of our return to restaurants.More

Great place to meet up with colleagues and enjoy a great breakfast. Good selection for all different appetites. Great and quick service if your in a hurry. Inside is clean but a little sleepy.

This restaurant was recommended by staff at the Mustard Museum. It was a short walk away and one of the places open on a Sunday afternoon. We had a late lunch and had the place virtually to ourselves. We were seated at a window table...and settled on Bistro Sandwiches. We enjoyed a Salmon Club and a Smoked Turkey with Bacon Club. Both had grilled bread much like a Panini, one with a cup of soup and the other with a cabbage salad. The food was good but we’d like to return to try breakfast or some other lunch items to see if we’d like them better. The service was good and the staff friendly. The only issue was that the Diet Coke that one of us was flat, non-carbonated. It was taken away and we weren’t charged.More
