Description: 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.

Large portions, friendly staff, fast service. No complaints except too much food and no will power are not a good combination.

We went to Sophia's because of the rave reviews since we were from out of state. We were a little disappointed. To us, it was just average food, like going to IHOP. You did get a good portion. My husband had the chicken fried steak and it was a bit dry. I had the fresh strawberry blintzes and they were... More

Pancakes are huge! Did I say huge? I'll say it again for proper emphasis - huge! Good breakfast and moderate prices. Fast service with friendly waitresses. Right off I-94 and Pipestone Ave.

Sophia's was very busy at 10:30 on a holiday, but the wait was shorter than expected. The waitresses do an excellent job and our food was quick & hot, with big portions. Awesome diner! Every one wished a us a nice day as we left from the bus staff to the host.
