Have been wanting to stop here for breakfast, finally made it. It is different, very small place. 50/50 counter seating and booths. We waited about 20+ minutes for a counter spot. The had the garden omelet and hash browns. The omelet is large to say the least, great flavors. So big that I did not need the side of hash... More

Sugar and Spice is a small diner in a less than desirable part of town but definitely a hidden gem. It's small, so it's always crowded. The pancakes are amazing and worth the drive and wait. DELICIOUS!

We went for breakfast and were very impressed. The waitresses were very attentive. My 18 month old loved the extra attention he got. They had toys for him to play with while we waiting and little signature duck toys to take home. Food was delicious and portions were generous. Place is small so get there early or go outside of...

This place is the best. It's small but it's the kind of place where the waitresses know your name and order. The pancakes and omelets are THE BEST. The owner is kind and whenever there is a long wait he makes sure to walk around with brownies or some other snack to hold you over.

Been meaning to drive 30 minutes and try this place for a while. It is a small place but there are stools and booths. The place is adorable and the service was perfect with every interaction with each person. The banana pancakes were yummy. Can't wait to come for lunch. Here's a quote from a Cincinnati roller girl friend when... More

Unique place, played games and sampled brownies while we waited. Also, gave my kids rubber ducks. As for the food excellent, with great service. Order a omelet they are big.

We had a wonderful breakfast experience. Great food, but the service was outstanding. My husband and I have never been to a restaurant that serves 'snacks' while you're food is being prepared---and it's delicious snacks--like warm brownies and ice cream. And you get a free rubber ducky. The decor is cute as well.

First time I visited was in the 70's. Last time was in April 2016. Cozy, friendly and great food. All I can say is to order the pancakes, bacon coffee and repeat as often as you can.

Great spot for breakfast. Eggs are extra fluffy and delicious. Pancakes are thin and tasty. One of the best breakfast burritos I have ever eaten, although a little expensive. Fast friendly service.
