The Sugar Shack is always my go-to place for breakfast from Spring through Fall as I love to eat outside and watch the people. The food is good, the service is great and I've always enjoyed coming here. It's also a great place to get a turkey dinner on Wednesday evenings!

Location location location. Having grown up in HB just a block from the Sugar Shack I'm obviously biased, but sugar shack is a great spot to grab a bite to people watch and satisfy the hunger created from a day at the beach. This place has been here forever (long before the hideous "renovation" to make HB more attractive commercially... More

I live in HB and this is one of the best places to go and have some good breakfast and enjoy people watching, if you sit outside, at the same time. Just enjoy the air, friendly staff, good food, what more could you ask for? :)

Sugar shack is the best breakfast spot in Huntington Beach. The omelettes are delicious and my kids love the pancakes. Don't miss the breakfast burritos. We love so much that my daughter asks for them every weekend. Go early though! It gets busy. The back patio is the best if you don't want to wait.

If you're looking for the most crowded breakfast place in all of HB, this is the place. In its defense, the servers work quickly, and the food never disappoints! And, there is a certain charm to the back patio if you can't get a place inside or on Main Street.

Going to The Sugar Shack for breakfast is HB 101. It's not fancy by any means but its roots are in the downtown surf culture. The food is very good

The locals go to place right on Main Street. I've sent so many friends from out of town here and they all love it as much as I do!

We enjoy our Saturday morning breakfasts at Sugar Shack. It says a lot for the restaurant when they have a waiting list to get in and the other restaurants on the street are empty.
