Delicious pretty much sums it up. Friendly and so great with the kids. Everyone's food was great. Kids ate a ton for them because they loved it. The pancakes "whisper thin" were fabulous. The omeletes were great. Wow loved it. Will definitely be back. Not a big place so probably need go off times or plan for a wait. Not... More

We found this wonderful place on google. It is full of old time charm and friendly people. My daughter had scrambled eggs, toast and hash browns and cleaned her plate! My husband had the best biscuits and gravy ever in addition to a sausage breakfast sandwich, he also cleaned his plates! I had 2 original wispy pancakes and 2 blueberry... More

Good service and good food. I left full and happy :) coffee was good too, surprisingly. Believe it or not most places can't figure out that small secret.

If you're ever near Xavier University, be sure to have breakfast here. The food is simply good and the staff makes you feel like family. You won't mind the short wait for a seat because there are no strangers here. Everyone is having a good time.

We went this past Saturday at 11:30ish and waited about 30 mins which was ok because we actually thought it would be longer. While we waited, the owner handed out mini icecreams, brownie bites, and fried macaroni. We got seats at the counter which was fun. I had the breakfast burrito which was delicious and huge. My fiancé had the... More

Their chorizo is incredible!! They have excellent corn beef hash too. Everytime I come here, I leave in a "meat coma." My kids love the enormous pancakes, my husband is a fan of the omelettes. The owners are very friendly and usually talk to us when we wait for a table. It adds a nice personal touch to the service... More

We always look for local family joints when we travel, and this is truly one! We always have blueberry pancakes on Sunday morning, so that’s what we ordered. They were wispy, wimpy, and barely visible. We should have had omelets, they were huge! We would give sugar n spice another try next time in town.

We went on a Sunday around 1:30. Probably waited around 30 minutes. Staff and owners were great! They entertained and chatted with our 3 children (3,6,8). Even gave them toys and rubber duckies. We tried a waffle, pancakes, Western omelette, hashbrowns, sausage, and bacon. Everything was great! Best omelette we have had in a long time (maybe ever)! What an... More

the waitress suggested we order the omelette and pancakes to split. the food was more than enough for 2 people to share and the pancakes were 'bigger than my head'! and she was right. the food was dee-lish! it hit the spot!

We had an incredible time at Sugar n' Spice for breakfast/brunch. It's a cute little diner. There was a decent wait, but during that time the owner brought toys for our two-year-old daughter and passed around fried mac & cheese and brownies. The food is cheap and excellent. The owner and staff are super kid-friendly, interacting with the kids and... More
