Sophies Cosmic Cafe was the first real brunch place I have ever been to. I drove out here in my 86 Corolla from Coquitlam when I was 18 to take a girl here for brunch, even in the late 90s this place had lines. Most people have dined here, and if you have not had a meal here, you most certainly have passed by seen the long lines out the door.

I met up with some old friends at Sophie's and I felt a little nerdy so I quickly took a picture of my food while my friends were preoccupied with the server. I just didn't feel like explaining why I take pictures of my food and that I have a food blog.

For brunch, I ordered the eggs benedict with ham which came to just under 10 bucks. I love the home style hash browns and their hot sauce is really tasty (not too hot). I kept eyeing the waffles that a person down the aisle had, and from what I hear they are spectacular.

In my opinion, Sophie's offers a very good meal but I am not sure if it is really worth the wait in line. There seems to be a line up all the time so maybe I stand alone on this issue.

Sorry, I didn't take pictures of the interior but think old Coca Cola signs, giant Mars bars, plastic fish and many other kitschy, cosmic items.

Sophie is a Vancouver classic... but I agree with you that I find it hard to feel that it's worth waiting in line for. If I have time to wait, I much, much prefer waiting with a lavender latte in hand at Cafe Medina... Thanks for the honest review!

Last time I tried to go, the line-up *sigh* was too long and ended up at Zen Cafe around the block instead. Cute story about your date though :)

By the way, I love your blog and gave you a shout out on my latest post :) Hope it'll get you more traffic!
