This is a great place to have a glass of wine and people watch from the window seats. General good vibe about this place, and the drink is not too price.

With a coffee shop on every block (and usually 3 or 4) I just stumbled into this and was very pleased. It was a great place to grab a light lunch and spend time talking with friends. The staff is helpful and pleasant and the food portions generous.

My 11 year old found this place online and wanted to have breakfast Sunday morning on a recent trip to San Francisco. The food was pretty good we really enjoyed the "Sugar French Toast" which was actually bread pudding French toast, bottomless mimosas and duck bacon. Very hipstery feel with unique art, unique menu and cozy fireplace. There's no parking... More

Walked in for a few drinks in the evening and stood at the bar for an eternity. No acknowledgement or friendliness from the barman. or anyone We decided to give them the benefit of the doubt but sadly to know avail. What a shame. We walked out with no drink, just a bad taste in our mouths.

I wouldn't say I loved the place, but I didn't hate it. Alexandra was very nice and attentive! The place could have been alittle cleaner, needs alittle pick me up. I thought there was more on the menu when I looked on website but the tuna wrap was great! Food seemed pretty fresh.

After a day of sightseeing, I just wanted to find a place where to have some drinks and chill out before going back to the hotel. Browsing the neighborhood I found this place and wasn't so sure at the beginning: I thought it looked like a place for hipsters only and that if you were not part of the local... More

My boyfriend and I went here one evening for drinks and dessert. We loved the ambience of the place. The sangria was delicious. The dessert was good but I wouldn't say it was worth the eight dollar price tag that came along with it.

We had our company annual party at Sugar Cafe this past weekend. I was in charge of organizing this party. From the time I met the owner/manager Jamie for the first time last week, all through the planning process and to the last minute when we ended the party, Jamie's customer service was excellent! He basically made my problems his,... More
