This place was great! We were hesitant at first because we've tried other breakfast spots and they were not good at all. They staff was friendly and you really get a bang for your buck. The portions are huge!! Go in with an empty belly!

During travel on the interstate highway, we were looking for something local, not a big chain, and saw a billboard for Sophia's. It was exactly what we hoped for! Good comfort breakfast food. Omelette was outstanding, even offered grits as a side! We were very, very pleased and enjoyed everything that was served. Heather, our waitress, was very pleasant and... More

For breakfast anytime, for impeccable service and great food, for portion size (I got the veggie omelette), atmosphere (cheery yet relaxing) l don't think you can beat this stop. About halfway between Chicago and Detroit.

We picked this place because it was near our Holiday Inn. Great choice. Mostly I was impressed with the two hosts who were extremely busy. Right when we walked in we were immediately recognized and greeted. Seated within minutes of walking in and then excellent service from Martha! Had eggs, strawberry waffle, hash browns...all very good. Awesome place for "... More

The staff is great! I used to go here with my grandparents at least every other week. The prices are reasonable. The quality of the food is perfect and the size of it will definitely get you full.

My most recent visit at Sophia's in Benton harbor was a wonderful experience. My son ordered the Mickey pancakes and I ordered the five-star skillet. I always end up needing a box for my leftovers. My server Heather was on the ball and never let me lack for service. The building was cleaner than in my previous visits and the... More

We used to go to Sophia's but the food quality has been poor. The servers are not very nice and were more eager to flip their tables over than let you finish your meal or refill your drinks.

Best breakfasts in Michigan. 5 egg omelets, fluffy waffles, tasty pancakes. Never miss this restaurant when in the area. Service is top drawer.

They kept the coffee coming and service with a smile. Corn beef was crispy and blintzes with blueberry were made there. Husband got a unique option of a piece of thick French toast as a side instead of toast ( no up charge!) with corn beef. Recommend this family run place .

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.
