Avertised bagels but had none. Man behind counter very rude. Not the same Sophia's anymore. Try somewhere else for good service.

But didn't live up to expectations. We were led to believe this place is a treasure...but it's just an ice cream vendor like all the others. Don't get me wrong, ice cream is good at Sophia's, but don't expect to be blown away.

We wanted ice cream after our dinner so went here. It was just ok. I thought the prices were high. I had a snow cone, which I would never get again. Big chunks of ice that I had to throw out. It's served in a paper cup instead of a snow cone "paper cone" so it wasn't fun. I wouldn't... More

nice little ice cream shop that also serves burgers and hot dogs. Nice to sit out on the front porch at a table and eat. Right across the street from out hotel.

We ate here late one night and i just wanted ice cream. I got a sundae and my husband got chili dogs. The ice cream was wonderful and the chili dogs were great. The staff were friendly and fast! Great location across the street from the ocean!

Ice cream down the street from the condo - what's better than that? They have a good selection of ice cream (Hershey?) and 29? flavors of soft serve. They also serve breakfast and I'm not sure about lunch. We were happy to see it there on our first night.

We walked over from the beach because we wanted ice cream, but ended up getting burgers and chicken tenders as well! Of course we went back up for dessert. I loved that flavor choices for soft serve - and didn't even know you could add flavor shots in! Absolutely delicious and reasonable prices. Both owners were there working & told... More
