ABOUT US

WE'RE THRILLED TO SHARE WITH YOU OUR JOURNEY THAT BEGAN BACK IN 2011 .

As a brother-sister team our dream was to create more than just a deli in Cranston. It's about bringing to life the flavors of our Armenian heritage, blended with an American twist. Every dish we serve is a piece of our story, a celebration of culture and the joy of bringing fresh, delicious food to our community. At Sonia's, you're not just a customer; you're part of our family, and we can't wait to welcome you.
