Sophie’s Cafe is a home-grown concept created by Whissle, the leading hospitality group in the UAE responsible for award-winning brands such as OKKU and CLAW.
It’s brand new location at Metro Central Hotel, Al Barsha Heights, serves a fantastic selection of wholesome and healthy dishes that’s either Gluten Free, Dairy Free, or Vegan. Yum!
We arrived at Sophie’s, a charming & cosy cafe right inside Metro Central Hotel, just after 9AM. The decor was simple and “natural”, the lights were perfectly lit, and the music played so soothingly in the background. Everything was well-placed, and although it wasn’t a huge area, it didn’t feel or look crowded.
What I love best about coming to Sophie’s was, I felt at “home”.
What We Ordered
Rise & Shine Smoothie
We love Rise & Shine! It was perfectly blended, didn’t feel too heavy but also wasn’t too light, and it was just super (super) tasty.
If only we could order 5 more, we would’ve!

Although Sophie’s Cafe seem to be a little bit on the expensive side, I love how everything was so organic, healthy, and fresh. And despite it being all that, the food was still exceptionally delicious! The quantity was also great – it wasn’t too heavy or too light, unlike other breakfast meals we’ve had. The portion sizes were perfect.
Would I have breakfast here again? Of course! But probably also try out their full meals too.
Thank you Sophie’s Cafe & TishTash for inviting us over!
