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

We live nearby, and this is our favorite breakfast place - and we have made it a point to go to every breakfast place we can find in this city. Need to be there early to avoid long waits, but even if you have to wait, the owner may come out to share experimental treats, brownies, and/or rubber duckies. They... More

Amazing pancakes. Attentive staff. Cheap cheque. What more can you want? Oh fine the restrooms weren't very clean. But it's a diner. And 10/10 one at that.

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...
