This place is an institution, and because it's now an institution, it's just not as innovative and cool as it used to be. But it is comfortable, like going to your European grandma's. I especially like it for breakfast and lunch.
I stopped by Sophie's Cafe on a whim, just passing through on the way to UBC. This was a real treat! The ambience at Sophie's was so inviting, the staff were attentive and genuinely friendly and the food was fabulous. The decor really is out of this world. Looks like a trip back in time. The food came fresh and fast and they have some very interesting items on the menu. This cozy little diner is a must when passing through West 4th.
For a fabulous home-cooked, diner-style breakfast in a laid-back but buzzy atmosphere, come to this Kitsilano landmark. On Saturday and Sunday mornings, get here early, or you may have to wait a half-hour or more to get in. You can also have a good, filling lunch or dinner here.

I was on vacation & a friend recommended Sophie's for breakfast. If you're passing by, you must go in! Sophie's is a fab little treat on the corner of Vine & you won't be disappointed. Great staff, great food & their pancakes are to die for! Amazing!
A lively and cheerful '50's diner-style cafe offering enormous old-fashioned breakfasts that feature pancakes, waffles, French toast, home fries, omelets, granola and a variety of egg dishes made with fresh local BC eggs.
