Expect to wait, wait and wait some more. Food is good but not worth the time investment. Building and seating is a major fire hazard. Can't believe the way they pack people in and block aisles.

Today was the first time I've ever taken my 19 month old daughter out to eat by myself. I choose sugar n spice because of the colorful fun atmosphere there. As soon as we sat down at our table my daughter instantly starting throwing a tantrum. I was trying everything and she just kept fussing, a worker walked up to... More

We went to Sugar n Spice having read the good reviews on TripAdvisor. It was packed but we were seated quickly at the bar. We were offered a sample of a brownie-delicious! I had the blueberry pancakes, my husband had grits and French toast with pecans. Yum. We were offered a rubber ducky. By the time we left there was... More

Pancakes to die for (wafer thin, never soggy). Husbands garden omelet had FOUR eggs! I had breakfast special with two eggs and sausage. Both of us delighted. Like layout with tables close to wait staff. Coffee and water refills always available. Goetta available.

We went at 10:30 on Monday the 1st. We were told the wait would be 30 minutes, and that was pretty accurate. The food and service were both great.

What can be special about an omelette with ham and cheese? How can it just be any different from other places? Go to this place and find out. I am not sure what the secret is behind the fluffy omelettes but definitely one of the best in town. My favorite is western omelette or any other omelettes from the menu.... More

This place is great. Loved the food, the atmosphere, and our vivacious server. I had their famous pancakes (I went with blueberry), and my friend had a quesadilla. They were both delicious, and the quesadilla was enormous. Yes, you're likely to have to wait to get in, at least on the weekend. But it's worth it! We went on a... More

I like the layout of this place - but with a maximum occupancy of 49 if its busy you won't find a seat right away. very good food, very good interior, very good staff and prices are reasonable. they pride themselves on the omelette and if you like the idea of a platesize fluffy omelette then this is the place...
