Sofi Café Pizza by Pasta Brava is one of three cafés that are next to each other on Craig Road, and is one of Tanjong Pagar’s hidden little gems.
Ambience, Service and the Staff
The restaurant is in the ground level of a restored shop house. The decor is tastefully bohemian. Passing through the alfresco dining area outside, you can be forgiven if you forgot that you were in Singapore. The tastefully decorated exterior leads to an equally tastefully decorated interior with lots of natural light and bright, cheerful colours. The decor has lots of wood and upholstery giving the café a warm and homely feeling.
On the day that we visited, we were one of 2 tabes to be occupied on a Sunday morning.
We hadn’t made a reservation ahead of time, and walked in. We were quickly seated. The staff were friendly, efficient and very helpful. They took our orders quickly and also took our feedback well when we told them that the music was too loud and lowered the volume immediately.
Sofi has a couple of menus on offer… it’s own offering brunch, and the one that it has borrowed from Pasta Brava next door.
We were a group of 2 and ordered a mixed juice, a flat white, the big breakfast and waffles with mushrooms.
Food came out quickly – our wait was about 10 minutes before the bid breakfast came out first. The waffles followed about 5 minutes later.
Everything served was very well presented and well made. Portions are generous.
The big breakfast was a generous serving without being too large. The brioche that was served as part of the breakfast was heavenly. The waffles were light and perhaps on the sweeter side than what we had expected, not really needing the maple syrup that was served on the side.
The quality of both the freshly squeezed juice and the coffee was excellent.
The Price Point
Including coffee and juice, we spent approximately just over $50 for two people. This is quite reasonable for the location and quality of food.
The Final Verdict
Sofi Cafe Pizza has to be one of Craig Road’s best kept secrets. It serves great food, has awesome ambience, and is competitively priced. This is a great place to bring large groups of friends to catch up, to conduct a business meeting, or to have a first date.
