Very friendly staff. Seated promptly and received coffee. Lots of food very filling. We thought sides were a little pricey for breakfast meats. Server prompt with refills.

So this morning on the 2nd day of our roadtrip, I wanted to hit a breakfast place that the locals go to. Sophia's is definitely the place. The portions are huge, the food is great and the service is awesome. Great way to start the day if u r here in Michigan city
