My boyfriend and I love visiting Sugar'n Spice! The omelets are extremely fluffy and delicious and the staff is super friendly. The owner brings around rubber duckies of all kinds and makes sure you don't leave without 1 or 20. We have gone several times and each time he strategically manages to... read more

Had this place recommended for breakfast. It's cute, don't get me wrong. Typical greasy spoon type food. But felt a bit exclusive - definitely intended for their "regulars". The owner will come around and assign you a rubber duckie... a cute tradition (though you'll probably want to wash your hands before eating... I don't think these duckies have seen a... More

Have been here a few times,with my family, while visiting in Cincinnati. It reminds me of a mom and pop restaurant. Have only ordered breakfast food. But, it is always great and I always look forward to going here. There is always a wait. But, the manager came around the last time with food samples and he made sure that... More

Picture an old diner from the 60's... Large counter with only 6 1/2 booths. People line up on weekends for breakfast here. I love coming during the week to visit with the friendly staff. The owner comes out occasionally and offers brownies, fried mac & cheese bites, or mini cream soda floats. It's a must try experience!! They are known... More

I came here based on other recommendations I saw on Yelp and I am really glad I did! This was probably the coolest restaurant ever! The owner Steve is amazing and needs to teach classes on how to run a restaurant. He served brownie bites while we were raising to each guest, gave us rubber ducks to take home as... More

This was a really quaint place. So much to look at and some unique things. They were packed on a Wednesday morning when the 4 of us went. The tables are small, so not a lot of elbow room. But, the food was really good. I had a ham and cheese omelet. It was so big, I could only eat... More

The chicken wings (which are the flats and drummett pieces) were old and splinter like...YUCK!! Sad part is tbat the seasoning of the wings was great! So I was a bit... More

Colorful--the restaurant inside and out as well as their owner. We braved the restaurant on a Sunday morning after a soccer game. My two kids (9 and 11) and I went and waited about 30 minutes to be seated in this small place that I had heard about from friends. The 30 minutes flew because the staff were friendly and... More

Went for Sunday Brunch. Waited about 45 minutes. Checked in at 11.15 for table of 5. Owner kept people happy passing trays of ice cream shooters, warm brownie squares & hot fried Mac n cheese wedges (how could you not be happy?) Once we got our table, service was fast & friendly. Steve the owner came by couple times to... More
