Who would have thought Brevard would have such great sushi!! Small restaurant but the food is outstanding. I've eaten here multiple times- mostly I get sushi and have yet to be disappointed- I've also had several other dishes and they have all been satisfying.

Even though I eat at Sora all the time, they always have something amazing, exciting and delicious for us to try. From the appetizers to the entrees to the hot sake (or cold sake), everything about Sora is exceptional. The staff and management is always...More
