Here is a very good family restaurant. Second time here. Great place to stop about half way from Wisconsin Dells to Chicago. Prices are very reasonable. Had a chicken wrap with lettuce, tomato & onion instead of cheese with fries & a large portion of apple sauce. My wife had a meatball sandwich with homemade soup. Carol is a very... More

Mom and pop style diner that features really great hospitality (bottomless coffee anyone), tempting desserts in the case at the door, and breakfast skillets that are bigger than your head. I opted for the country skillet which comes with 2 eggs, biscuits&gravy, hash browns. It was enough for 2 breakfasts and they pleasantly packed my leftovers for the next day.... More

Had breakfast very early Saturday morning. Right at 6am. Food was good. Nothing too special but not bad either. Service was very good. Will definitely dine there again.

Good food, reasonable prices. Typical diner fare. Good soups, great breakfasts. Good for families. They have a couple pretty big tables, so they could handle a group.

We actually ate here twice during our one week stay in Beloit. We found the food to be very good, fresh and prepared as ordered. The server and owner were very friendly and made us feel comfortable and like valued customers. This place would be good for any meal or just for dessert and coffee (you can't miss the cooler...

We eat Sunday breakfast at Sophia's at least twice/month after church! The service is great; friendly, fast, knowledgeable, and they remember if you have been there before. Sophia's omelettes are 3 eggs, fluffy and cooked perfectly. Try the Vegetarian or the Mexican! I like the Irish Skillet: corned beef hash (with green peppers), American fried potatoes, 2 eggs and toast.... More

Sophia's food is always exceptional, from their chicken and dumplings to their fish fry! The wait staff are very friendly; service with a smile.

A friend of mine wanted to try this place and decided that to try this place out. On the outside, it doesn't look much to offer. Once we got in there, it was a different atmosphere, though a lot of knick-knacks, on around that you might see at an antique store, but it left an impression (will tell you later... More
