“Good place to eat in Christchurch”
Reviewed 2 February 2012

Afte the city has been hit by quakes not too many places to eat in the city. This one surprised us and was just beside our accomodation. Great food, friendly staff and even met the owner Sophie. The locals hang out here. Should try their burgers and steaks....

“A decent local place”
Reviewed 11 January 2012

Due to the earthquake there aren't that many great places to eat in Christchurch. There are some out there, but one has to search a bit. Sophie's is a good local place to eat, a place where locals eat. So, we had a good taste of local type food. It was not a fancy place, but adequate for our needs. The folks were friendly and nice and the food was good.

“Go here for brunch”
Reviewed 6 December 2011

Awesome value for brunch great portion size brilliant service. We had dinner here and the waitress was hopeless, we were seated waited 40 minutes and were forced to go to the counter and order, and if youve been here you know how small it is.

“Lovely Food and Ambience”
Reviewed 20 October 2011

We had breakfast there, the meals were really nice and staff friendly. I loved the old fashioned teapots and cups. The cafe has memorabilia and photos everywhere which adds to the ambience.
