Everytime my husband and I order from Sonia's, we stop talking and just eat! We revel in the delectable flavors of their sandwiches and the excellent French bread! Their middle eastern prepared foods are varied , with many different types of feta, olives, specialties, and my favorite, marinated eggplant. The eggplant and hummus is worth the trip! Oh, and to...

I have been going to this deli for several years and I can say that this is the best in Rhode Island. Everything is fresh and vibrant and the entire staff makes you feel like family. If you're hungry and looking for a tasty lunch, do not miss Sonia's. Walter

While waiting we looked through the shop and found some preserves, spices and nuts. The lahmecun did not disappoint. There is clearly a warm relationship between the staff and the regular customers.It... More

We stopped by here and were given a friendly welcome by the young woman at the counter. Everything we ordered was fantastic! Fresh, well made, large portions and fair prices. In addition to the food, available to eat in or take out, they carry lots of unique middle eastern products and ingredients. We'll definitely come back when we're in the... More

As I tried to find a parking spot I was struck by the number of police and rescue vehicles were there. I thought for sure there must have been a medical emergency, but I went in anyway! Thank goodness because as I looked around no emergency was to be found just all these public servants having lunch!! I have been... More

I ordered and enjoyed the gyro plate. The salad was fresh and crisp. The rice pilaf was steamy hot and had a very nice balance of flavor. The gyro was everything it should have been.

Love..... the falafel chicken wrap, salads are huge, great tabouli, and wonderful desserts! Busy but has some parking. Nice area in the store for shopping to take home things to try. Some tables for eating there. Mostly seems to be take out. Everything is fresh and made to order. Really really good eats!

From the armenhammer to the supreme gyro, Sonia's has the best lunch time food around. They are super friendly and cater a large party platter in a pinch. The quality is top notch and the taste is impeccable. Tip: call in your order for lunch because they are ALWAYS busy with a line out the door at lunch time.

Thank Matt B
