  • Maxwell TGet food to-go & take it to Mt. Auburn Cemetery

    55555 by Maxwell T

  • Earn DBest hot chocolate and lamb shawarma!

    55555 by Earn D

  • Bhavin EWhere should I begin! Literally everything here is amazing. Your mouth will have a rave party with every bite of Mediterranean delicacy. Try everything.

    55555 by Bhavin E

  • Kent RGet the slightly sweet, slightly floral Turkish sahlep (hot drink made from orchid root) and head down to Mt. Auburn Cemetary for a stroll. Perfect fall day

    55555 by Kent R

  • Reagan HanselmanWe really enjoyed the sausage pita, and every dessert we had was fabulous: chocolate chunk cookie, pumpkin turnover, and fig baklava.

    55555 by Reagan Hanselman

  • Mike NEgg sandwich

    55555 by Mike N

  • Kapil GAwesome food..n coffee..everything here is good

    55555 by Kapil G

  • T NMy borek was very good! Warm, crispy, cheesy, and just greasy enough. Warning: you will almost certainly have to wait here, both to order and for a seat, especially on weekends. Worth it though :)

    55555 by T N

  • Dan AWhat's good here? Everything. This is the best breakfast/brunch spot in Cambridge. In particular, get the meze platter and the Tahini-brown butter donut. When in season, get the pumpkin jam latte.

    55555 by Dan A

  • Abdullah AlrajhiEverything taste so delicious. Tried the Turkish breakfast, shakshoka and tahini donut "not sure about the name". It is not a good portion to order one thing so you might considered two courses.

    55555 by Abdullah Alrajhi

  • Steve B.The rich coffee is reason enough to come, but you'll want to eat everything after reading the extensive menu and specials. Spinach falafel is great, shawarma also looks amazing.

    55555 by Steve B.

  • Neal MLamb shawarma is great but there are so many things to try. Get the green hot sauce with it

    55555 by Neal M

  • Leia KGet the hot chai. It's warm, soothing and delicious. They also have soy and almond milk for non dairy drinkers

    55555 by Leia K

  • Steve B.Pricey compared to other local options but you'll taste the difference. Exquisite coffee and a delicious breakfast sandwich.

    55555 by Steve B.

  • George R.Baked goods are excellent and they have several options of batch brewed Counter Culture coffee to choose from.

    55555 by George R.

    55555 by Jake G

  • mike l.Is be mayor if they still had that shiznit #4sqfail

    33333 by mike l.

  • Jeremy K.Pretty much everything you get at Sofra is delicious but it comes at a price. Nothing is cheap there to say the least. Try the shakshuka if you have the opportunity to do so.

    55555 by Jeremy K.

  • Eyal Z.Shwarma and desserts are great.

    55555 by Eyal Z.

  • Ari J.Lovely little place that's very busy at lunch time. Be sure to check out the pastries.

    55555 by Ari J.

  • The Wall Street JournalI'lI go for the Turkish breakfast, and at lunch, for lamb shawarma, beet tzatziki and the homemade hummus and pita. I can never resist leaving without a few sweets.

    55555 by The Wall Street Journal

  • Serious EatsSofra, owned and operated by the same all-star team that brought Boston area residents Oleana and Sarma, is a Middle Eastern food lover's paradise.

    55555 by Serious Eats

    55555 by Allison W.

    55555 by Ilyse R.

  • Gina S.Turkish breakfast is amazing. Also try the mezze sampler, you'll get to try so many different things. The food is so tasty and the colors are vibrant!

    55555 by Gina S.

    55555 by shanen s.

  • YeipĂ­ J.Turkish breakfast is to die for!

    55555 by YeipĂ­ J.

  • Nour H.You can easily get disappointed if you're expecting something to taste like home. The lebanese part is so modified I can barely recognize the taste.. The labne in the turkish breakfast is good but

    55555 by Nour H.

  • Briana M.Turkish breakfast is sooooo good. Fave!

    55555 by Briana M.

  • Premshree P.Do yourself a favor: get the thick, creamy, rich labneh; eat it with your favorite preserve, or just plain.

    55555 by Premshree P.

  • Nancy B.Everything is wonderful - Turkish Breakfast, shwarmas...best baked goods - get the earthquake cookies!

  • Leah K.Get Turkish breakfast. I.j.k

    55555 by Leah K.

  • Katrina D.The mezze platter is great for sharing, but grab some extra bread or crackers!

    55555 by Katrina D.

  • Yasemin K.Mezes are really tasty, but the portions are very small

    55555 by Yasemin K.

  • Rich A.It's worth completely leaving your comfort zone here, everything is great. If you're less adventurous start with warm buttered humus or shakshuka for breakfast. Moroccan donuts are NOT to be missed.

    55555 by Rich A.

  • Active PawsThey removed 2 of their best dishes, what is Chef Ana doing? I enjoy change but the current options are less than spectacular. Also an employee has hogged the mayorship, no point in checking in

    33333 by Active Paws

  • Lauren L.Everything at this place is delicious, but the seating is almost nonexistent. I would recommend arriving before the crowd or taking your order to go.

    33333 by Lauren L.

    55555 by Jason J.

  • CityRover M.Sofra’s secret is getting out, & weekends are packed, so a Thursday lunch is a good way to get acquainted with this gem on the edge of Cambridge. Linger for some free coffee refills & tasty baklava.

    55555 by CityRover M.

  • Boston.com20-seat place with Turkish, Lebanese, and Greek fare. Try the flatbreads, Turkish breakfast, and umm-ali. The tea and coffee are also excellent, but the service can be slow and weekends are busy.

    55555 by Boston.com

  • GourmetLiveThis bustling bakery-cafĂ© gets better with every visit! The value? Many of the superstar mezes from Oleana—Sofra’s more upscale sibling—appear here at lower prices.

    55555 by GourmetLive

    55555 by Garner B.
