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.

Had planned a picnic in the park, but that didn't work out. I was sure we weren't going to find a place to enjoy our meal, but driving by saw that it wasn't crowded, so we grabbed the opportunity.

VERY happy we did. Kabobs and Chef's plates and burgers and Veggie Chef's plate were superb, as well as her usual good coffee that she roasts herself to a smooth finish. She also has hummus and baba ganoush and the like on her menu.

Just thought I would pass this on if there are other Moms' families who blew their planning today!

No, I have no financial interest, just an interest in making sure Sophia's doesn't disappear from lack of business.

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.
