Our Hotel server recommended this place and the food was tasty and the service was fast, but it was nothing special.

Food here is good. Large portions and home style foods. This is a good place to eat when you are hungry but do not expect anything gourmet, just good old fashioned home style cooking.

Sophia's Cafe was recommended and we went there twice at very normal eating times and it was closed. Not many places to dine in Shelburne so this caused us problems. I won't be trying the 3rd time.

So if you have the chance to visit the South Shore stop by Sophia's in Shelburne and try the hot Lobster roll 😀❤️. It is soooooooo good. It's what a Lobster sandwich should be. Delicious. For dessert you have to have the Mile high Lemon Meringue pie. Oh my it's awesome. All and all its a great place to eat... More

Here for breakfast, should be easy but none of the choices even come with hash browns... Got the hungry man, was passable but nothing to write home about. Pancakes were undercooked, so were the scrambled eggs! Not a soul here either. Well tried it but won't be back sorry.

When a group of friends and myself traveled to Shelburne, one of the highlight meals was from Sophia's! The seafood chowder was delicious, and many of my friends equally enjoyed their lobster rolls. The staff was very accommodating and friendly!
