Came here to meet friends on a Sunday morning after the night before and it hit the spot. I had the American breakfast and added on some scrambled egg and hubby had the mega which is just massive. We were very impressed that hubby could have toast as he can't have gluten and it's not often that there's a gluten... More

I have eaten here twice over the weekend. The food is amazing, and the staff are lovely. Can recommend the Monster American breakfast and the Eggs Benedict. The coffee is good too. Can truly recommend this cafe :-)

We stumbled on Sophie's at lunchtime and got the last table. The service was a little slow, as the place was crammed full, but it was very friendly. The menu is interesting and varied, with lots of choices for all day breakfasts. The food we had was outstanding - a pulled brisket baguette for me, which was delicious, and a... More

Used to come here all the time as a student when it was called Upper Limit. Came here with a friend for lunch and again for breakfast. Great coffee and there's plenty to choose from on the menu. It is a shame there's not enough seating for when it's busy as it's still very popular (which I'm chuffed to see!).

We ate breakfast at Sophies on two occasions and were never disappointed. They have a wide range of different breakfasts to suit any taste. The ingredients are high quality and the portions are generous and make a welcome start to the day. In addition they provide a wide range of other foods in the form of sandwiches, paninis and the...

We were looking for a place that served breakfast after 12 and we found Sophies. We had an American breakfast, a standard breakfast and an extra large. They were all very high quality and tasty. The prices were reasonable too with a hot drink included. This place makes the best all day breakfast ever and definitely the best in Aberystwyth;... More
