A local favorite!!! Daily and weekends! First come, first serve! Weekends get busy year round. Best time with little or no line is before 7:30. Service is always friendly and fast !

Satisfying breakfast. Nothing super special. The basic pancakes, eggs, hashbrowns. It's not a gourmet breakfast but a place to sit outside on mainstreet and people watch. So if you are going to the Sugar Shack the main attraction is to sit at an outside table and check out the cars and people traverse Main Street. If you have to wait... More

Sugar Shack is a family owned restaurant that has been a Huntington Beach favorite for many many years. We have taken out of town guests there and they always ask for the Sugar Shack on return trips to California. Food is great , service is warm and friendly locals. It gets crowded, especially on the weekends so plan accordingly.

Great breakfast, you may wait for an outside table, but the people watching is as good as the food! Go enjoy the food and linger, great value for the amount of food you get!

This place is always good. It's inexpensive and a great place to go for breakfast or lunch. It does close at 2pm everyday so get there early! Parking is metered or in a parking garage or if you can find it street parking. One of my favorite places to eat on Main Street

Sugar Shack, along with Longboards, is one of the last authentic places in what used to be Surf City. So go spend money in both places to support them. I don't think there is a surf shop left in the area. You can buy a surf board in some of the clothing stores like Jacks and Surf and Sport but... More

We always sit in the back. Really like the Burritos, I had ham and cheese with egg whites hash browns in side, the fries are very good and the local HB staff tops it off as one of my favorites in HB...
