My office is close by and we all get take out from here. Everything is good. The venue is unpleasantly crowded but the food is worth it.

Great for takeout, the space is tiny, few tables. But the food is worth it. A very unique treasure that should be experienced.

Love Sofra for their menu that is unique in its own way but puts out high quality food items with an authentic flavorful experience. I love their falafel and am always up for trying something new from their menu or specials. Highly recommend.

A truly amazing bakery with unique and quality flavors, and the lunch items are fantastic. Have yet to try the breakfast, but the menu looks enticing. The pistachio poptart, beet tzatziki, and Red Dragon Tea are noteworthy, so be sure to try those. The availability...More

A combination of a pâtisserie and a cafe (with a wine shop tucked in the back!) this cozy little place is always a pleasure to visit. They have a wide selection of Turkish and Middle Eastern influenced pastries (shout out for the Orange Blossom Morning...More
