The atmosphere was cool but other than that, to me nothing really special about it. The prices were kind of high, compared to a Waffle House or even Cracker Barrel. To me the food was just ok, I'd rather go to Waffle House or Cracker Barrel. The service was really good, so that's a plus.

Sugar n' Spice is very unique, cute and quaint. It is definitely a place to check out if you are living in Cincy. If you are just in town for a short visit, it's not a must but cool if you have time. To me the number one thing was the atmosphere. I loved all of the decor, the mugs,... More

Took my parents and wife here iver the thanksgiving weekend. The food is always great here. If you are a pancake lover you must try their pancakes. They are something in between a cakey pancake and a crepe, super thin and very tasty. The omeletes are giant fluffy omelets that have creative ingredient selections to chose from. Sugar "n spice...

I'm from Cincinnati and Sugar and Spice is a staple, a monument. Very small and quaint but the food is great.

This was definitely worth the wait! The owner comes around with samples to try including, fried mac and cheese and breakfast ice cream! He also comes around with ducks, which is very unique! The food was wonderful! The omelets are HUGE and delicious, as well as the pancakes! I definitely recommend you come here! Great service and amazing food!

I first ate at Sugarnspice about 20 years ago. I am not a regular, but have taken a few people there over the years. It hasn't changed. I first took my son when he was about 3 years old. He loved it, and loved it again as he requested to go. The food is like my own breakfast. The place... More

We were there on a busy, busy Sunday morning and almost didn't stay because we were traveling. We decided to wait it out and the food and atmosphere were great! It's a tiny spot - sign said the capacity was 49. Most seats are at a bar and they have books and games out for children. The pictures on the... More

I know I'm not the first to say this, but Sugar 'n' Spice was definitely worth the wait. My husband and I went on a Sunday around 11:30 a.m. There were several people waiting outside, so we knew we were in for a bit of a wait. From the time we put in our names to the time we were... More

The food specialty was great....but was it worth the wait. Yes, if you have the time. It is an adorable place but convinced they lost my solo reservation since people who came in after me were seated firsy. In her defense...the place is small and over the top. Then my pancakes were lacking the requested blueberry.
