Since I live in Huntington Beach, my friend and I eat at the Sugar Shack about once a week. We really enjoy sitting on the patio and watching all of the people walk by while we eat good food. The Sugar Shack has a front patio that faces Main Street, an inside dining area and a back patio. If you... More

My friend and I ate a Sugar Shack twice during our long weekend trip to Huntington Beach. The food is great as is the service. We each had the Keppler's Breakfast which is like eggs benedict but with scrambled eggs on an English muffin with fresh tomato, avocado, and crispy bacon and a great Hollandaise sauce. Not too heavy and... More

My daughter is allergic to eggs so breakfast out is usually hard for us. Luckily she was able to eat the biscuits here so she was happy. I had a breakfast burrito less the eggs and they put tons of bacon and avocado in it. My husband got biscuits and gravy, but coming from the south we have a little... More

If you are a local or a visitor this is one of the few places that offers a solid beginning to the day at reasonable prices. If you are a resort visitor hoof it over to the Shack , have some great home cooking and save some $

I've been coming here for years. It is definitely the locals hangout and always a wait on Sat. Sun mornings if you want to sit on Main Street. The food is pretty good and the people watching is SUPERB. The family that has owned and runs this place is great and the servers are always friendly. Great place to get... More

Nice to sit outside on the patio for breakfast! Nice location downtown Huntington Beach. People watch, enjoy the breeze. Inside is a bit cramped, but the atmosphere is "surfy" and cool. No need to dress up, just come in with shorts and flip flops and you'll fit right in. Staff is hip and ready to serve. Food could be better,... More

I loved this place so much I went twice during my 3 day vacation. The French Toast is amazing. If its a nice day the outdoor seating is great for an ocean breeze and people watching. Great location to gift shops and the pier. I can't wait for my next trip back to get a yummy breakfast.

Our family of 4 headed to Sugar Shack on a Sunday morning around 9 am and were told it would be about a 25 minute wait. That wasn't a problem, there are plenty of shops to window shop near-by. Make sure you stay close by though, as we were seated in 15 minutes and if we hadn't been close by,... More
