Sophie's Cosmic Cafe
Every inch of canary yellow wall space in this cafe is covered with vintage toys, souvenirs, photos and mementos. Arrive early if you plan on enjoying breakfast—it is rumoured to be the best in the city—as line-ups usually snake down the street by 9am. A bottle of their own hot sauce (CAD5) goes on everything (even eggs)! Other menu choices include a spicy Falafel Burger, and the tender Teriyaki Chicken served with rice and steamed veggies is delicious. The hip, laid-back clientele enjoys lunches that average around CAD7, and dinners at CAD9.
Don't go here! Was there Jan. 31/10 with family. VERY OVERPRICED! $9 for 2 bland pancakes....no toast, no bacon, no coffee....no flavour! Syrup is cheapo brand...watered down. Don't waste your money. We go our regularly as a get-together to various places and will NEVER go back there again
Everytime I'm in Vancouver so far it seems to be a tradition to stop in at this very cool cafe! I've walked over 40mins to go...I order my fav Ashoura Wheat Breakfast, and I can't get enough of it...although I've yet to venture of my regular order, I hear their waffles are just as good! A must go while in
The food was edible but nothing to write home about. The service was really sad although there were only one other table occupied. The baby chair they gave us (we were told to take one and to install it ourselves although we were unfamiliar with how it worked) was broken and the other wasn't any better. The baby almost fell out of the chair because it came undone! The waitress couldn't care less.
To sum it up the experience, we're not going back.
Very neat atmosphere of all the nik-naks around the walls -- made for a lot of conversation for any 30-or-40-something. A delicious breakfast with plenteous portions, excellent hash potatoes and fresh-squeezed juices (including apple). Our waitress was patient and cheerful, and the owner took time to talk to us. We really enjoyed our visit to Sophie's.
Needs a face lift or a good dusting and painting.. Grubby with all those nick knacks that looked dusty even in the night. Interesting place but must have looked better years ago when freshly painted and clean..
Food ..so so, I ordered salmon, but the salmon burger was dry and not as fresh as it could have been .. In fact, I wondered if a canned salmon burger might have been taster!..
Why did we wait?? I had heard a couple great reviews and decided to try it for myself. After about 45 minutes in line, we were left wondering what all the hype was about. I've had much better breakfast and service at Denny's.
This is a great place for a family with young children as there are lots of knick knacks and pics to look at.
The service is standard, I like that they make their juices fresh here.
This isn't a place of culinary delight, it is just delighful home cooking. It's neither too pricey nor out of this world.
I like how this place has a bit of everything and there is even some concessions on a daily glass wine list. I don't live on Kits but whenever I go to the beach with my kids, we enjoy going there.
Try Sophies...if you like your food bland and the service blander!

Since when did trendiness equate to a culinary delight?
Sunday morning there was a 20 minute lineup for this place - I figured therefore it must be good, right?! - WRONG!!
My girlfriend and I had ordered breakfast. The bacon was cold, the eggs were OK (how can you screw up eggs) and the pancakes were VERY bland to say the least. Although this isnt one of the worst restaurants I've ever set foot in, it was one of the most overpriced considering the poor value in service and food.
We eat out often and this WAS NOT one of our most pleasurable dining experiences. The service left much to be desired. While obviously this isnt a 5, 4 or in my books even a 2 star diner its not asking too much to expect the Waitress/Waiter to come and ask how the meal was or at least appear to be more accomodating.-Perhaps they stopped asking as they of all people know the food is as tantilizing as waffers of cardboard wrapped around a non-flavored toffu patty.
I do not mind whatsoever paying good money for a nice meal but lets just say I felt ripped off/cheated whatever you want to call it walking out of this 'restaurant' with $35 less in my pocket.
The 'ambience' was nothing special. The walls resembled the vast plains of Oklaholma after Tornado Season - Junk strewn everywhere but hey its kitsilano, that's what they call art, isnt it?!? The entire place wreaked of desperation and all things contrived.
Complete waste of money, you could make a far more substantive/tastier meal at home. I am not sure how places like Sophies and Bread Garden stay in business in Vancouver - Perhaps Vancouverites on the whole have dead tastes buds. Pass on this one, you wont miss a thing!
I don't understand what makes this restaurant popular, apart from a sort of hip, Kits-y aura. The food is mediocre, the service is indifferent, and it is way overpriced (guess they know how to reel em in).
Kits is blessed with many great restaurants - don't waste your time and money here.
