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.

Best Breakfast in Michiana

Hands down the best breakfast and not just because the food is great. It is great but the service outshines everything else. They know how to take care of their customers. Our favorite spot for pancakes!

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

We found this restaurant by accident when we got off I94 for gas on our way from Chicago to Ludington, MI. The portions were huge. I forgot the name of the breakfast my husband and I ordered but we each got 2 double yolked eggs, choice of meats (we chose sausage), an ample helping of hash browns, 2 huge pancakes... More

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.

While vacationing in the area, we have been stopping in at Sophia's House of Pancakes for breakfast many years now. The staff is delightful; the food is superb!
