It had been several years since our last visit. We experienced GREAT service by everyone who was hustling and bustling to take care of the customers. The food was excellent. It has been a long time since we have been totally pleased with the service...More

I went here with friends for a late breakfast. Everything was fresh and the coffee was great. The waitress was very friendly and efficient. The outside patio area looks very nice.

Came here for breakfast, impressed first with the decor, then the staff, then the food. They put cute little doilies under your coffee cups! Good for breakfast and lunch only.

A very nice choice of food, pleasant service staff and reasonable prices made our first visit to Sophia's quite memorable. So much more on the menu than simply pancakes - this is a great place to visit at all times of the day.

The staff is friendly, the portions are large, the prices are reasonable. I had breakfast and it was very good and not your typical greasy film covering everything.

We read other reviews that warned of long waits. We were there at 8:30 on a Sunday morning, and got a seat right away. Service was good. Food was delicious. I had a broccoli and cheese omelette, and my wife had the huge amount of...More

Yes, they have carry out. Just call ahead and they will have it ready. But I he service is fast there, so unless you're in a real hurry you can probably sit down and eat and be done quickly.
