Tucked away on one the cobbled streets of Hofheim is this gloriously quaint cafe.  Sofia’s cafe is an absolute delight for the imagination!

The Story of Sofia’s Cafe

Sofia’s cafe is not just a clever name, it is in fact the owners namesake. And as the story goes, Sofia’s is what began as passion and love for cooking and baking and transformed into two very successful cafes!  One in Königstein, which is is currently seeing a revamp and menu overhaul and will back fresh and new in April.  And, another in Hofheim as result of a serendipitous coming together of like hearted people.  You see, Sofia is a collector, a collector of items from a bygone era!  And, it was finally in Hofheim that she could fully realise her vision to bring together her passion of baking and cooking and her love for antiques!

The Vibe

Chandeliers descend from the ceilings, tapestries hang from the walls and the bell tinkles each time a new customer opens the door.  Finely painted tea cup towers great you from the far wall as you enter, and rest assured so will Sofia if she isn’t predisposed.  Once inside feel free to tuck yourself away either upside or downstairs or otherwise settle in on the main landing and soak in the hustle and bustle as people come and go.  Also, large exposed wooden beams and bricks walls add to the feel.  Finally, an emerald green alcove adorned with gilded gold frame mirrors and a basin with copper faucet serves as the powder room and makes your ‘visit’ all the more enjoyable.

The Menu

There is plenty of deliciousness on the menu ranging from the sublimely sweet to stupendously savoury.  The tea cup towers that stack along the wall are not just for show but the vessels that you sip the fairly extensive tea list from.  Also, the Korean influence shines through in many of the dishes for example the bulgogi panini and salad.  However, we cannot talk about the Sofia’s without talking about the cakes and in particular the carrot cake, perfectly moist, nicely balanced and the perfect amount of creamy icing!
