Cremorne Point Ferry Wharf doesn't seem like the best place to grab a bite to eat, but the small and unassuming kiosk, Sophie's Place, is worth checking out. You can choose from homemade baked goods, smoothies, sandwiches, or just a warm cup of coffee. If you're catching the ferry in the morning and haven't grabbed food at home, Sophie's can be a godsend.
The kiosk opens in the morning, but is usually closed by late afternoon. You can grab a bite for breakfast or lunch there, at reasonable prices. Their specialty would be their freshly baked goods. Think super moist friands, large and tasty cookies, or fresh cakes and muffins. They're all baked fresh, so you don't need to worry about stale food. Any sweet tooths will love tasting a bite from what is on offer. You can also grab sandwiches that are made fresh on the premises, or have a warming toasted sandwich on a cold winter morning.
Coffee is popular, especially before an early morning ferry, but there is more on offer. Sophie's has a good range of cold drinks, including soft drinks, flavoured mineral water, and juices. Why not splash out and get a yummy smoothie. Thank fully the coffee is good, which always makes a better start to the morning.
If you want to grab something quick before catching the ferry, then Sohpie's is in prime position. If you want to sit down to enjoy your food there are some small chairs and tables, but nothing too substantial. If you're in the area, but in no real rush to get anywhere, grab some food and take a short walk up the Cremorne Point Foreshore Walk. Here you can find a nice patch of grass to enjoy a picnic on, with food compliments of Sophie's.
You might not drive to the wharf just to grab something from Sophie's Place, but if you are in the area, or catching the ferry, then there is no reason not to stop. For yummy food, and a hot coffee, Sophie's makes a great addition to your ferry ride.
