Sugar shack is our go-to spot for breakfast in downtown Huntington Beach. The food is traditional and plentiful. Sit outside if weather permits. During the warm season or weekends, the lines are long, so plan accordingly.

We asked a local where to get breakfast and he said hands down the sugar shack, so we took the recommendation and it was great. Yummy breakfast omelete with potatoes and great rye toast.

This cafe is the most busy on the street. They normally have a list outside that you write your name on and then wait for a table. It's worth the wait. Although we never waited more than 15-20 mins. There is also a list in the back so you can check what one is shortest an sit there. Mainly breakfast... More

Make sure to ask for hash browns well done! They are so good. Very fast paced mom and pop breakfast place. A must visit in downtown HB!

I loved this quaint restaurant. I had an omelette & it was very tasty & a good value for the price. We sat outside in the back & enjoyed the beautiful fall morning.

The 7 of us went for breakfast and found the staff terrific. Meals are generous and a great value. The location is fun too. Great for people watching. An absolute HB icon not to be missed.

Great comfortable restaurant. Good service and great food. You can sit out front, in the restaurant or out back. Why go to a chain restaurant when you can go to a local place with the locals.

Great spot on Main Street down from the pier. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Food cooked perfect. Generous portions. We sat outside in the back. We could enjoy the weather without everyone that walked by checking out what we were eating.

Like a lot of people, we ate breakfast as the Sugar Shack Cafe. Everything we had to eat was good. The coffee was good. The 1/2 coffee and 1/2 hot chocolate concoction that I got to go after breakfast was very good. We were there with 2 kids under 3 and the waitress was very accommodating. The location is cool....
