“Bring your appetite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Sweet Sue's is probably the best weekend brunch in this area. The menu is fun and full of every kind of pancake and omelet imaginable. The portions are huge, so don't feel weird ordering the smallest size available. Their tall stack of pancakes can feed three people and you still might need a take home bag. Expensive for breakfast, but still an affordable treat. Be prepared to stand on line if you're coming on a summer weekend between 9- 11AM.

“The best country breakfast ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

We have been going here for over 20 years. The place has been closed a few times lately but I'm assuming its reopened. They have the best breakfasts anywhere. Never have we had a better pancake. I always go for the whole grain crunchy ones with mixed fruit. One is more than enough for me, but people go to town here with huge plates of food. Everything is homemade from scratch, with farm to table ingredients. Homemade bread, local eggs, great homefries, excellent toasted homemade bread come with the eggs (big thick slices), good coffee. Even their lunch salads are farm fresh with great combos and homemade dressings. Good service with a smile. Always crowded, worth the wait. Absolutely the best place in the world if you love pancakes freshly made with a million variations. Love Sweet Sues :)

“Classic Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Well worth the trip. This place has been in Phoenicia forever and is always busy. There are few things worth waiting for anywhere, but this place is just awesome. Everything I have ever eaten on the breakfast menu has been wonderful but I also really like their sandwich's as well. Everything has a slight twist to it which makes this place very unique. Don't think that you are gonna fly in and have a quick breakfast and go skiing..... you will be too stuffed to even put your boots on!!!!! Sweet Sue's has been consistently excellent for decades.
