Cafe Sophia's is a Quiet, uncrowded Mother's Day gem

Original post made by Appreciative Mom, Midtown, on May 11, 2008

Sophia's Restaurant on Middlefield in Mid-town, next to Papa Murphy's Pizza, to my shock, was quiet, calm and uncrowded when I went to lunch with my family today. It has expanded its menu to include the ever kid-friendly burgers and fries, as well as some simpler sandwiches, in addition to its delicious Afghan food.

I like Sophie's very much. There is a great need for a low or medium priced place for breakfast in Palo Alto to replace the beloved Cook Book - and nothing has yet!!. I think Sophie would get more of a breakfast crowd is she would advertise "American" Breakfasts rather than Afghan breakfasts. Just a suggestion.

The appetizers and salads and coffee are terrific. So is Sophie.

Try Mike's Cafe in Midtown for weekend breakfast. My whole family have enjoyed breakfast here and they serve it beyond lunchtime so some can breakfast while others lunch.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
