If you want greasy hang over food for cheap, this is where the locals will be. Also people who lived here forever ago have that nostalgic moment when they stop in. Weekends have lines to get a spot on the front and back patio but worth it. Very cheap! Great food but you would have to go next door for... More

I have lived in HB for over 20 years and Sugar Shack always has will be so crowded and the wait on weekends is FOREVER! So you would imagine this place to be some extraordinary foodie find right? WRONG ! The food is nothing special, other than the typical grub that has no extra care in preparation or tastes. Coffee... More

We visited the Sugar Shack based on it's rating here on TA. The food was good. We had your basic egg dishes. The Keppler was very good. However, the wait is very long to get a table. You have to write your name down on a clipboard out front and when they get to you, you are seated. What they... More

Great place for breakfast. Be in time, gets busy very fast. Best places are on the terrace streetside. Service is good, fast and delicious food! We ate there three days in a row, while staying in Huntington

Love riding our bukes to Sugar Shack. Advice: Don't worry about 'sitting out front'. Sit on back patio or inside and enjoy all the conversation. Make sure you lock your bike!

Forget the cholesterol count and Starbucks style coffee. This place is real, so if you want to start the day right - stop in for a genuine breakfast meal. Locals love the place and after 8AM you might as well go to IHOP on the corner - cause you're not going to get a seat. An H.B. Classic.

Ate breakfast here on a weekday in late July with my wife and 3 kids. Got a table in the back patio area of the restaurant - no wait. The server was cordial, kind; but a bit slow (only got 1 refill of coffee during our over hour long stay). The food was fine and did come quickly. Portions were... More
