The full review for Sofa Café

Review by: Ollie O Rating: 4.2 stars Review Date: 11/24/2018

Sofa Café has three locations in Lima, and soon will have six. Expansion typically means you’re doing something right. Sofa Café has sort found a middle-ground between being a trendy, contemporary restaurant, and a cute and quaint café. This fusion seems to have worked. The original café in Barranco has been a big success.

The décor is, as described, a funky, eclectic mix. As the name implies, there are a few antique copy Victorian sofas, chairs and coffee tables strewn about the restaurant amidst some colorful ceramic-tile-topped tables on ornate iron pedestals, with unusual ottomans with backs (which, defying their appearance, are quite comfortable).

Pleasant music is softly playing in the background. Volume up slightly in the evening when the café converts to laid-back gastropub.

The menu runs the gamut. A full host of breakfast items, including eggs done every way possible, waffles, pancakes and French toast. There is no better place in Barranco for breakfast, although La Bodega Verde comes very, very close.

Sofa Café has a full range of lunch and dinner items too. Salads, sandwiches, pizzas, pasta, and a page full of Peruvian and not-so-Peruvian main-course dishes.

I’ve tried several egg dishes. All well-executed. The sandwiches and salads are pretty good, too. Sofa Café is just a great casual setting for an informal meal.
