“Warm Kiwi hospitality”
Review of Sophie's Cafe - CLOSED

Sophie's Cafe
Cuisines: Steakhouse
Restaurant details
Reviewed 5 March 2012

Sophie's is the best thing that happened to us. As we were new to the city which due to the earthquake, was half dead, we desperately needed some hearty meal. Sophie's was about 50 metres walk from Kiwi base camp where we were staying. The owners (sophie and her husband) are so warm. They came and started a conversation with us and suggested what we should order. The burgers are amazing and also the massive shakes. A must visit when you are in christchurch

The best steak meals you will ever get. Also take a look at all the celebrity photos on the walls.

Avoid this place. I like a dive but the food was so terrible! Not exactly clean either.

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....

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.
