This restaurant is great for a quick cheap lunch with quality fresh ingredients, and lovely in the evening for a special occasion - Some of the best food that Ive tried in my city came from here. A definite must go to.

Gluten free chocolate ganache cake is amazing! Wonderful tomato soup with a secret ingredient, which is also gluten free. I recommend Bistro Sofia as a place to stop for lunch while visiting the St. John's downtown.

I have eaten at Bistro Sophia several times since it has opened and if I lived in the city I am sure I would be a frequent patron.
The service is great but, most importantly, the food is delicious, especially the desserts! There is also great wine to be had.
I really like the atmosphere of this restaurant. It is very open, lively and welcoming.
I will definitely eat here again and again!
Go. You won't be disappointed.

Bistro sophia = delicious desserts. My favourite is the carrot cake. Expresso drinks are not very good, so just stick to tea or coffee. I used to love their soups, but the quality has gone down-hill over the past couple of years. If you need a cake (or cupcakes) for a special occasion, you have arrived.
