Our Story

Sophie is more than just a cafe and market, it’s a nod to slower times when folks valued the simple, most honest things; good food, drinks and conversation shared with friends or family. In the correct setting, a perfectly pulled espresso or a plate of freshly cut salumi and a tasteful glass of wine have a big impact on your day.

Our inspiration for the cafe is beloved Aunt Sophie. With a bottle of wine in hand, Aunt Sophie showed up ready to share tips on dining, entertaining and cooking the perfect slow roasted chicken with herbed potatoes. Sophie’s spirit informs our European café and market offering baked goods, wood-fired plates and delicious drinks – all the time.

Spending time at Café Sophie is truly living.

We’ll give you a reason to linger, and enjoy your coffee, learn about a new wine or find the perfect gift at the market. You are always welcome to eat or drink at the counter, and you’ll leave with something special, either in your basket or your belly.
