I had the Albanian sausage entree, a delectable lamb/beef sausage served with hash browns and cabbage salad. The sausages came with a dip similar but not quite a tziki. Everything was delicious including the tomato soup starter and turkish coffee. A lovely little local bistro...where you can tell the food is truly made with love.More

We stopped in quite by chance as it looked so inviting with plants decorating the exterior and patio tables on the sidewalk with people obviously enjoying their food. We dined inside as the tables were nicely distanced. I ordered the hummus sandwich which was outstanding....It was served on a soft focaccia that got just a little soggy, but was still delicious. We learned that they will be changing their menu a little for the fall/winter that will still include the hummus combo, but it will now be a wrap vs sandwich. I’m sure it will be every bit as tasty. The cabbage salad aka coleslaw with vinegar and oil was a tasty side. My husband had the gyro sandwich which he said was really good. He got the fresh fruit as a side and was pleasantly surprised to see that it wasn’t the usual melon side, but rather fresh strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, and grapes. Our server was very attentive and friendly. We will definitely go back when next in the areaMore

Arrived for breakfast around 8 am. Tables were distanced. Wait staff very attentive and friendly. My eggs, pancakes, sausage were very good. Med Scrambler and Biscuits and gravy for others also judged VG. Outdoor seating in front of the restaurant with very nice plantings to...provide a cozy, attractive feeling.More

Family owned and operated, super breakfast choices. Always a creative 'special' or two (they like to do crepes and blintzes). Even Mexican breakfast menu items are wonderful. Your coffee cup stays full. Of course the Albanian sausage is homemade family recipe and their signature item.

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).

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

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

Eastern European (and traditional) breakfast. Plenty of gluten free options to choose from. Service was prompt, coffee refilled promptly as well. Does not serve dinner. Beer and wine but no cocktails and no bar.
