Just love the breakfast here. The amount of food for the price is amazing! It's well worth waiting for a table if they're really busy.

I intended to go next door, but they were closed so I found Sophias. Glad I did because it was a delicious breakfast with big portions and great taste.

We recently went to breakfast at Sophia's because we had heard that there was new management. What a difference! The staff were outstanding and the food had more generous helpings. Lots of little changes added up to a great experience.

This is a popular breakfast/brunch place, but I've never stopped there before. I love the restaurants that serve breakfast all day. It's along the lines of an average pancake place but with more of a Greek vibe. The portions were very generous. Everyone was able to take home enough for another meal. I'll be sure to stop by again!

My family loves this restaurant. It's our 'home away from home'. The omelettes are epic; huge, flavorful and cooked to perfection! My husband and mother always order the Mediterranean Frittata, and split it as it comes with generous sides. Our coffee is always full, our every need met and everyone smiles. Can't wait to visit again.

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.
