Description: Named after our two year old daughter, who likes cake, Sophie's is a family run business in Lymington's cobble quay hill. We're fully trained baristas who serve up proper coffee and homemade slices of cake that our nans would be proud of.

On a visit to Lymington it was hard to find an independent coffee shop serving high quality coffee, but thankfully we found Sophie's. Monmouth Coffee was being served which was a good sign and we had two flat whites that were well made. The milk was steamed correctly and served without any pretentiousness (that sometimes goes along with good coffee for some reason!).

Very popular and located on the cobbles leading down to the quay. The coffee was absolutely top notch, freshly ground with some latte art on top. Not at all like the big chain coffees, a notch above. Surroundings modern clean and very quaint.
So why the average review, the cakes we found very dry and average taste, especially given they where clearly home made. Im not sure if they had been hanging around a while in the summer heat or we were simply unlucky. I would definitely go again, its better than the other options down on the quay.

What a find! Homemade cakes and lovely coffee served by helpful and very pleasant ladies. My husband had the lemon drizzle cake and I chose the banana cake. Look out for this little gem.

Went to Sophies over the weekend and had a great cup of coffee and a really excellent Panini, filled with tuna red onion and cheese - all the staff were delightful and very chatty - well worth a visit - great place to meet with friends for a good cup of coffee

Visited here during weekend break to new forest. Clean, friendly place with one of the best coffees I've tasted outside London. Service from my waitress was attentive and relaxed and i recommend you try their Victoria sponge - i even took a piece away with me. It was very busy so I did have to wait, but it's worth it.
