Sonny's cafe is open for takeout during the shelter in place. I've ordered takeout a few times, and the food has always been delicious. I recommend customers to call ahead to place your orders. I've tried their chicken salad, spring rolls, imperial egg rolls and banh mi sandwiches. Everything is reasonably priced and all the food was made with fresh ingredients. Overall, I highly recommend Sonny's cafe if you are craving for some authentic Vietnamese food.

I got a bbq pork bahn mi and a pork and noodle plate. It was great. Very nice people running the place. Lots of competition for Vietnamese good but this one is favorite. Fair price food. Can't beat this place

I always stop by here when I'm in the area to get some solid Vietnamese food. (I have never tried the American breakfast food at Sonny's.) I like the grilled pork and shrimp over vermicelli noodles, the imperial egg rolls, the fried chicken wings, and the fresh lemonade. The cafe is open during SIP for takeout but with limited hours.

An oasis of the bestist - that's what I would call this place. We are seniors (my husband and I) and our tire on our car just had a "massive coronary" and air would not revive it. Not only that but the place that we usually go for breakfast had closed and we didn't have the car and we were both starving and now waiting for AAA. We also went to two other places in the area and they were closed as well. We went to Baskin Robbins (why not have ice cream) and they were closed. The gas station where we stopped the car had no refrigeration and no food just chips. Then I saw Sonny's and the "We are Open" sign and they served "food". I went in and they had breakfast food (bagels, croissants). We're from New York - we know our bagels. So I ordered a bagel and cream cheese; and another bagel, egg and cheese and coffee with milk and sugar. Wow, for a plain bagel, it sure was a nice size and warmed and the outside was toasty. What a wonderful surprise! It was great. And to top it off - their coffee with the milk and sugar was stellar and delicious (do they mean the same thing) and I and my husband drank it all. A hole in the wall - I don't think so - this is an oasis of the bestist. Did I mention that they were so reasonably priced? Well, they are. Thank you! Karen

Very good food. I love the broken rice and sandwiches. One of my favorite Vietnamese spots. The owner daughter needs to smile sometimes but good food.

I drove by and decided it try it. It was delicious and very inexpensive! Food was great. I ordered sandwiches (pork, chicken, and tofu), chicken pho and prawns for the family. My picky kids ate everything. They said it was good. I will definitely be back.

This place is my favorite place to dine with my daughter! The family that owns it are so sweet, and I appreciate how kind they always treated my daughter and I. Our favorites are... of course the pho soup, but the appetizers section has chicken w in bags and the spring rol

Oh my gosh! Neighborhood gem! We have driven past for years and not stopped. Today we stopped for Pho and Vietnamese Iced Coffee. It was the freshest most delicious pho ever! I am stuffed but can't wait to come back. This sweet little place is family owned and run. Super nice people!!

I've been eating @ Sonny's for more than 15 years. The portions are smaller compared to other Vietnamese restaurants but it's still fresh and delicious. All of my colleagues and family absolutely love this place. All of the banh mi's (sandwiches) are packed with flavor and the baguettes are so soft. The vermicelli bowls, pho and rice plates are appetizing and fresh too.!
