Food was good. We got lunch and they are more known for their breakfast. One guy passed out free rubber duckies and awesome ice cream. He was fun, energetic, and helpful. Apparently separate checks are too much to ask- our not so sugar n spice waitress said "are you kidding me" under her breath when another worker asked her to... More

Fun and nostalgic ambience. Tiny place with counter and adorable booths making it a cozy brunch. Food was good. Kids and I loved the bucket of rubber duckies to choose from. Wispy thin pancakes were delightful. Went on a Sunday and the wait was an hour so be prepared.

Found this place on trip advisor and saw that it had good reviews and wasn't far from where we were. We were greeted by a nice waitress and she even gave us some pointers of what was good. Let me just say WOW! Ginormous omelettes and great sweet potato pecan waffles. We were stuffed!! Great little quaint spot with good... More

The diner is quite small, but we've never had a problem getting a table. It's a typical old-style quirky diner. The service was good, not great, just good. The servers are efficient but I wouldn't say they are all that warm and friendly. The menu offers so many great breakfast options. I really enjoyed the Sweet Potato Waffles and the... More

Their wispy-thin pancakes are delicious. The other options are good, not overwhelmingly delicious. If you go on a Sunday, expect to wait.

I don't understand what the hype is about either.Sent my eggs back because they were cooked wrong and tasted funny. Owner came out and argued with me about it. Said i hurt the cooks feelings! REALLY? Wispy thin pancackes were awful. I can make better ones at home. Sorry Sugar and Spice but its not all that. No desire to... More

Disappointed. I don't think I understand what the hype is about. We drove 30 minutes to try this place. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing good either. Just average. We got the pancakes - their specialty. Taste just like pancakes I make at home. Coffee is normal - like folgers or something. Bacon wasn't tasty. Service was average, at best.... More

Can't believe I have lived here all my life and just found out about it. We did have to wait a while to be seated and to get our food, but that is because the place is so popular. Great pancakes, friendly staff. Can't wait to come back and try a different menu item.

My girlfriend and I came here for brunch and it was an amazing meal. They seated us in a cute love seat and we ordered away! I got the slaughterhouse five which satisfied my carnivorous side and my girlfriend got pancakes and all so delicious! This place has tons of cute old school toys on display and the owner came...
