Decided to check this place out after reading the rave review in Cincinnati Magazine. The magazine praised their breakfast, especially the thin crispy pancakes. We were looking forward to this before heading to the nearby zoo. Very very disappointing. Thin pancakes but not crispy and not hot. Mediocre bacon , eggs and toast. The service was very average. And just... More

Sugar and Spice has not recreated itself...it is still the best breakfast in town no matter what time of day. It is not open for dinner so don't even think about it. Quaint little neighborhood place, not pretty, but fast and delicious. Fluffiest omelets in the world. Don't know how they do it. Their sandwiches are wonderful. If you are... More

Sometimes we are turned off when we have to wait in line to eat...but, it is a sign of a great restaurant. Sugar'n Spice is a very, very popular mainstay (dined there as a kid) that simply gets better and more popular over the years! Excellent food, casual atmosphere, a bit noisy and a memorable experience. Try to time it... More

Traveling thru Cincy, from Cape Cod and found a new number 1 for breakfast. Right out of the 40's with charm, decor, friendly staff, great bottomless coffee and an amazing breakfast! To boot, walked out with two little squeeze ducks celebrating their 75 year anniversary!

We went here twice for breakfast during our Cincinnati visit. The food is so good. The omelets and pancakes are awesome. Everyone is so very nice and friendly. Go early or be prepared to wait in line.

Delicious Breakfast! I had the garden omelette which is large enough for you to share with another person. I also had a side of blueberry pancakes that just melts in your mouth with those scrumptious blueberries. The entire staff is very friendly and that is so awesome to see, because it really makes your dining experience very pleasurable. The food... More
