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

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!
