Sophia's Buffalo, NY



If you google "best breakfast in Buffalo, NY," you are likely to find Sophia's as a top result.  We did, so Fancy and I headed over there to see what all the buzz is about.  We were not disappointed.


I went for the Giambotta, their signature skillet breakfast.  It came with homemade Italian sausage, peppers, onions, garlic, home fries, and eggs (I upgraded with some cheddar).  The waitress recommended I get a half portion unless Fancy and I were splitting, so I did that.  Seriously, pictured above is the half portion.


Fancy got the create your own skillet with bacon, feta, eggs, mushrooms, peppers, home fries, and onions.  Again, she went with the HALF portion.  Awesome.


These skillets were AMAZING.  The food was extremely flavorful, and it was clear that the ingredients were fresh.  Every forkful had a new flavor combination, and everything was cooked perfectly: the bacon and potatoes were crisp, but the veggies weren't over cooked.  The portions size was incredible, especially for the price - around six bucks.  Neither of us could finish, and okapis have huge appetites.


Did I mention that the skillets come with homemade bread?  No?  Well, it does, and that bread is delicious.  Turns out this place was featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.  One of the things they show is the bread making process.  It is easily the tastiest white bread I've ever eaten.


We love breakfast dessert, so when we go out we usually grab a short stack of french toast.  This was unsurprisingly delicious.  It was crispy on the crust with a soft, sweet center.  I especially liked how they didn't put the butter right on top.  The place was slammed, but the staff was extremely helpful, fast, and courteous   Five stars - if you find yourself in, around, or heading through Buffalo, stop at Sophia's.  You won't regret it.
