Grab a Seat on the Patio

This is the perfect little breakfast spot if you can nag a seat on the patio! There is usually a little of a wait on the weekends so sign your name on the list in the front or the back (entering through the alley.) This place is breakfast only. It opens super early but closes at 3pm. A great pick... read more

Good place to sit outside and have an omelette in the morning. It is very easy going and a heat place for locals - therefore a good place for out-of-town visitors.

Went to Huntington Beach to check out the surfing World Cup and stumbled upon this great little gem. Be prepared to wait for a table as it was pretty busy, but well worth it!

We stopped by the Sugar Shack for breakfast. It was packed! Our server was prompt & friendly. The Kepplers breakfast & sausage burrito were delicious. The portions were huge!! We will definitely be back!

Service at the Sugar Shack was great and the staff were efficient and friendly. The beverages were fine but the food wasn't up to the levels we had expected given all of the reviews. The hollandaise sauce was lacking in flavour, same for the hash browns, but the eggs were poached nicely.

I went to Sugar Shack before walking down to the beach. It's in a great location. We sat outside on the patio, service was fast, and everyone was very friendly. Breakfast was good, typical breakfast food. I really enjoyed being outside and being able to watch all the action going on at Main Street. I will go there again next... More

Drove into Huntington Beach on the way to Disneyland and had targeted Sugar Shack Cafe for our first stop. This was a good decision. The food was good and the service was great. We were lucky enough to be seated quickly in the front patio. The weather was great too. It was a good start to our California vacation.

Loved watching the locals come in and get their usual breakfast. Has patio seating in front and in back which was nice given the perfect weather. This is a can't miss if you visit Huntington. Come in and watch the surfers grab a bite before heading out for a pre work surf session or come in a little later and... More
