The food was great! Service a little slow and if there is a wait, then there really is a wait, and never like a 10-15 min, its always busy and its small so the wait is real, but it's worth the food!

Loved this colorful and quirky place! Everything was delicious--the giant fluffy omelet was plenty for two of us to share. Friendly and efficient service made for a delightful breakfast, and it was fun to get a rubber ducky as a souvenir! So glad we found it!

We had an early Saturday breakfast for the first time at Sugar'n Spice. We'd driven by for many years and never had the opportunity to stop in, but today we deliberately headed there first thing. What a delightful place, and a sweet reminder of days gone by. The food was great - we opted for the simple bacon, eggs and... More

Sugar' n Spice is a colorful building located in a mixed use industrial area. It wouldn't matter if it was located in a sewer. It has a very loyal customer base and is almost always crowded. You will not find a more diverse group of customers, Whites, Blacks, Asians, young, and old. The wait staff is very colorful including servers... More

Just pulling into the driveway made this a place to visit. The Neighborhood and the exterior design and color were enticing and cried out locally owned and locally operated. The 7 a.m crowd was quietly sitting at the bar sipping morning coffee as the colorful interior invited us in. My business associate had been here often and wanted me to... More

Expect to wait, wait and wait some more. Food is good but not worth the time investment. Building and seating is a major fire hazard. Can't believe the way they pack people in and block aisles.

Today was the first time I've ever taken my 19 month old daughter out to eat by myself. I choose sugar n spice because of the colorful fun atmosphere there. As soon as we sat down at our table my daughter instantly starting throwing a tantrum. I was trying everything and she just kept fussing, a worker walked up to... More

We went to Sugar n Spice having read the good reviews on TripAdvisor. It was packed but we were seated quickly at the bar. We were offered a sample of a brownie-delicious! I had the blueberry pancakes, my husband had grits and French toast with pecans. Yum. We were offered a rubber ducky. By the time we left there was... More
