What and adorable place. They sell everything maple as well as grass fed frozen meats. They have fresh fruits, vegetables, local wines, homemade pies, and they have a deli! In the fall they advertise an animal attraction, as well as home pancake breakfasts served with their homemade maple syrup that is made right there on the premises. We had some... More

Food was good. Nothing fancy. Very basic menu. Atmosphere was a little stark, terrible lighting. The areas of goods for sale were very appealing, however. Many types of maple treats, all different size and shaped containers of maple syrup, all kinds of books; educational, recipe, farming, history, you name it. There is also a tiny market attached with some local... More

Although there are lots of maple sugar/syrup places scattered throughout this area, I'm glad we chose this one. The Sugar Shack is a no-frills place that seems beloved by locals. Waffles, pancakes, sausage, and bacon - all topped by the establishment's own maple syrup - were delicious. I also have to mention the Maple Munchy. So very yummy, with its... More

Our group of 15 met here on a recent weekend morning. Food was served promptly and efficiently and they even gave us separate checks! I enjoyed my breakfast of eggs, pancakes and home fries. The store was interesting as well.

Beginning in mid-February and lasting only until mid-April at the latest, maple sugar shacks across New England harvest sap and transform it into maple syrup. Selected sugar shacks also offer breakfast. The North Hadley Sugar Shack is one of these. The waffle with a side of maple syrup and bacon ice cream alone is worth the trip! Be careful, each... More

I was so glad we found this place on our trip to Northampton. It has a cute little country store with lots of maple syrup and a deli. We had lunch there with some delicious chocolate milk. The kids area was really a great find. Cheap to get into and with several play areas, animals and even a handmade slide... More

You can get many things at the sugar snack. Like milk, bread, etc.... It is like a small grocery story. Then when you go down the hallway you will come into this restaurant were they serve breakfast, and lunch. For breakfast you can get pancakes with the maple syrup that the sugar snack makes from the local sap from the... More

This restaurant, grocery, maple sugary show place, and food is terrific. I found this restaurant googling maple bacon ice cream! They have it, and we ate it on waffles! Their homemade maple syrup is tasty. We learned that the pretty bottled maple sugar is the lowest amber grade and not as flavorful as the dark grade A. At the tables,... More

Came with my sister on Good Friday for breakfast at 9am, and they had one server on the floor. The place was expectedly busy, but there was only one woman taking orders, refilling coffee, and bringing out food. Obviously we didn't get a chance to ask for a coffee refill. The food was was good, but not so much the... More

Let's face it, there are lots of little places all around New England. The North Hadley Sugar Shack is a stand out! The proof is in the fact that you better get their early to get a seat! Fantastic pancakes (with fruit or chocolate chips, if you want), french toast, local meats and so much more! Plus the owners and... More
