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...

At sugar and spice. I am not sure what happened during our visit. We sat down at the counter and waited way too long. People who came in after us-finished their food...and we had not even been served. Terrible experience and I had heard so many good things. It was my nieces birthday celebration and it spoiled the meal. So... More

Such a great atmosphere...vibrant and busy. Was a great first experience and we will be back! Seems so much like an old neighborhood cafe with the people and food you hope for. Definitely recommend this place!

We have had the platters, the pancakes and omelettes. Always delicious!!! Get there early for faster seating. This place is starting to become a Saturday morning family tradition!

When we drove up to it this morning the signs outside were glossy, cute and just fun in general. I knew that it was going to be a great place before I even stepped foot inside. You see, I don't look for "New & Improved, " most times. I prefer when it's a local place with character. This little place... More

The food was really good, huge portions, but for two of us our bill was over $35! We both had an omlett and a drink (oj & milk). I would rather not get so much food for breakfast that I need a to-go box. Smaller portions with smaller prices would work for me. The entire staff was friendly and out... More

Great food and atmosphere. The owner loves what he does and it shows. Recommend for brunch, but seating is always tight.
