This restaurant had a high rating from TripAdvisor, but we were disappointed. My husband's pork chops were overcooked and dried out. My eggs Benedict were bland and needed hot sauce to make them more interesting. However, what disappointed me the most was that when I was considering paying extra to substitute fresh fruit for hash browns our waiter said it... More

Breakfast this morning at Sugar Shack Cafe, where we got a table on the footpath, coffee, and reflected on a wide-ranging menu. My wife had the Sunshine Special, I had ham and eggs. Both meals came with lots of toast and friendly service and a continuous stream of coffee. The food was good and the situation was great. Choose the... More

Good food. Fun location. Quick service. Close to the beach. I recommend the Sugar Shack for breakfast. My friends and I all enjoyed our food, the atmosphere and were surprised how quickly our food came.

After reading great reviews while looking for an outdoor place to grab a bite this morning I ventured over to the Sugar Shack Cafe. I grabbed a three egg omelette and loaded it up with ham, bacon onions and peppers! I coupled it with fruit and toast and a cold glass of orange juice! While enjoying a tasty breakfast you... More

After discovering The Sugar Shack we ate here everyday for breakfast while staying in Huntington Beach. Huge choice on menu. Great service. Friendly wait staff. Depending on the time there may be a wait for tables at the front but we ate inside a couple of times also and there was never a wait for a table there. Highly recommended.

The Sugar Shack Cafe has outlived nearly every other restaurant on Main St. Their philosophy is simple, local owners run the place and employ their family members who genuinely care for the customer. Not to mention the food is fresh and plentiful. Give it a try if you are in Huntington Beach, you won't be disappointed.

The food is wonderful, the waiters are very helpful and timely. The people that frequent the Sugar Shack are very friendly and pleasant. I just enjoy the hometown atmosphere.
