Sophie’s on 4th: A Very Kitsy Place

Sophie’s Cosmic Cafe, located on the corner of 4th and Arbutus in lovely Kitsilano, is a fun place to have dinner. The best part is that fun never stops because Sophie’s is right next to the Comic Shop (bright yellow building) and the Candy Aisle (groovy green building). Eat, nerd, and rot your teeth, all in one go.

Here’s a nice, cozy booth for you and me. I think I’ll order the Sophie’s Nut Burger with fries and a Caesar salad. Oh, and a big chocolate milkshake for desert. How ’bout you? The open-faced turkey sandwich with fries and lots of gravy? Sounds great. Oh yes I know, gravy really is everywhere.

Yes, that’s a giant plastic fish stuck on a pool table… I know, it adds a certain degree of je ne sais quoi?

There are loads of entertaining things to look at in the Cosmic Cafe. They have the largest, mish mashed collection of 50s, 60s and 70s memorabilia I’ve ever seen… crazy glued to a restaurant wall.

You have a soft spot for Oldies’ tunes as well? Why, what a lovely coincidence. My personal favourite Old School ditty is by the great Jimmy Dean, “Smoke, Smoke, Smoke that Cigarette.” Yours too? Brilliant.

You know what goes great with cigarettes? Coffee. And lots of it. I’m on my fifth cup.

Hey! It’s Charles. He’s a very proud parrot.

Thanks for visiting Sophie’s! Hope your experience was cosmic. I sure had fun.

    Gravy in descending punctuation.

    Gravy! Gravy? Gravy: Gravy; Gravy… Gravy.
