Went for a family breakfast. Service was very friendly and I never had to ask for a drink refill. The restaurant served large portions of everything. I had the blueberry crepes. They were just average. I believe the food is good for the price.

Have always wanted to try this place. Stopped for breakfast on the way from the casino. Owners were nice, and service and food were very good. Will definitely stop again next time we are in town. Crepes were the best I've ever had.

Service was friendly and fast. Loved the fresh flowers on the table.. I had the French Toast(forgot which one) it was stuffed wit Mascarpone cheese. Not for me, but was well prepared.

We have only been here for breakfast. Sophia's is all about good food, good service and hot food that is served promptly. Splurge with the fresh squeezed OJ. It is fairly close to I-94 if you are just passing through Michigan City.

Stop here each time on our way home from Michigan. Just off the interstate. The service is fast and friendly. Each time ordered a different breakfast. This time had the frittata. It came with a waffle. The orders are very large and easily split. I could only eat a portion of mine.

I've heard bad things about this restaurant, but we've been there so many times without a single issue. Food is always good, service was good. If you like crispy hash browns, the server suggested deep fried, they were perfect. No complaints.

The restaurant was nice and clean. Our service was very good. We ordered a breakfast with eggs, meat and pancakes. Sausage was tasty, however, pancakes were not very hot. Orange juice is fresh squeezed and delish. The other comment is that I was disappointed when in the restroom I turned on the hot water and othing came out. They only... More
