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.

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!

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.

The farmhouse frittata was amazing. Came from PA, visiting for a party. Went to Sophia's twice :) Thanks for the food!

Came here with friends before the Steelhead Ironman. Everyone loved their food which was served fresh and hot! Portions were very sizable - my veggie omelet was the biggest I've had anywhere, and would easily make 2 meals. We were attracted to this place due to their extensive menu and great reviews. Sophia's did not disappoint. The service was excellent... More

I was hoping for great things based on reviews I'd read and was underwhelmed. It was just okay. Nothing special.

We planned our drive from Chicago to Detroit around a stop at Sophia's, based primarily on reviews. I want to start by saying that everyone was exceedingly nice, starting with the man who seated us and then apologized profusely for having too move us. We had an outstanding waitress, Christine, who apparently has been a fixture for many years. She... More

Excellent place for breakfast. Extensive selection of entrees, friendly staff, greeted at door, promptly seated and server is right there to take your drink order. Your drinks are served promptly and order taken when served. Your meals are served promptly, steaming hot, large quantities and tasteful. Your beverages are kept full and service could not be better. We were impressed... More

Family and great food go perfect together! This restaurant provides the perfect breakfast for any gathering. They have plentiful seating for a larger family or group. Beware Sundays are busy and prime times will come with a wait.

If you're traveling down I-94 in either direction around breakfast time, get off Exit 28 and turn at the light at McDonald's and across the street you'll find Sophia's House of Pancakes. My wife and I were impressed immediately by the management which quickly and efficiently seated us at our table. The place was jammed with patrons, however, the waitress... More
