What a great breakfast and awesome service. I normally prefer healthier fare, but if you are looking for IHOP this is really a step above. The service is way better than I've experienced at restaurants far more expensive with far better food.

Typical dinner

Typical dinner food with good prices and attentive staff. I tried the salmon burger: the fries were good but the salmon was a bit watery, just regular 'side of the road dinner'. The pancakes were fluffy.

Sophia's House of Pancakes serves a great breakfast, but even better than the food is the waitress named Christine. When you go once, she will remember your name and your order for the next time. It's like going to Cheets, where Christine always knows your name! Great food and great service.

I was here alone on a busy Sunday morning. A appreciate the fact the greeter/host asked if a small table by the kitchen entrance was ok, instead of just putting me there. The waitress was there in less than a minute asking about coffee. Despite being very crowded my order of biscuits and gravy, 2 eggs scrambled, and hash browns... More

This place gets crazy hopping busy around noon, but I've never had poor or slow service from that. The wait staff is ON it and super friendly. The omelets are HUGE - and I mean seriously huge. They're 6 eggs, plus they come with sides (pancakes or toast; hashbrowns or grits), and are very, very inexpensive for how much food... More

As has been previously noted-you get a lot of food for the money! The quality is great. The ham is real ham not pressed. The eggs are double the number ordered and the hash browns and pancakes are amazing.

This place is great for Breakfast, but the menu is HUGE. Also when ordering eggs, ie 1 egg with bacon, etc, etc- you will actually get 2 eggs, and the 2 eggs breakfast is actually 4 eggs. Must be the new math, LOL. Waitress and hostess were really nice, helpful, and polite. They are a little on the pricey side... More

Sophia's is one of the best breakfast restaurants at which I've eaten. Their pancakes, omlets, and skillets are very good. A little pricey but worth it when you consider the amount of food you get. I don't breakfast here as often as I used to now that the Galley Grill is in business.

Went here with wife and a friend. I ordered pecan pancakes and sausage links and coffee. Wife ordered scrambled eggs and bacon, hash browns and biscuits. My pancakes were good. Large.. 4 of them. The drawback was the pecans were literally thrown into a cluster into the pancake, so each one, I'd get an area of a few pecans, then... More
