Sugar and Spice - but was everything nice?

Recognize this building? I've driven by it for 5 years and had no idea what was inside. Honestly - I thought it was a strip club! Well it isn't!!! It's Sugar 'n' Spice - a surprisingly cute diner!

Cute? Yeah - look at the stack of pancakes on the wall (note to my sister - learn to paint pancakes). It has adorable orange/white booths around the edge and then a diner counter as well.

What's this little guy to the left? It's a kid slipping on a frying pan with an egg in it!

Whoever the artist is - it's great!

Make sure to click on the image to see it full size - it's very well done!

They really add to the ambiance of the place. The outside is so pink (which I love) and then the inside is so sunny and fun!

Scott got the BLTE - and man - I was kinda jealous. I can make this at home but it looked good. He said it was fine...nothing spectacular but again - it's a BLT (oh the E = Egg in case you couldn't tell).

I got the quesadilla - it had chorizo, peppers, onions, cheese, salsa and eggs and came with a side of sour cream and salsa. I liked it! The salsa was very flavorful - I'm sure it was just jarred...but I liked it.

The quirkiness abounds - look at this half-booth! It cracked me up once I saw it!

Overall - Sugar 'n' Spice wasn't shockingly great - but it was good. It's very cute and I'd definitely go back. I think it's the kind of place that is consistent and probably has something that you'll think is awesome - just wasn't either of these items. Like I said - they were both good - just not great.

I definitely will take my sister there when she gets home - it's a fun, cute place.

Also - the owners also own Red, Tinks and the Vineyard! Good crowd to be in!

They're open Every Day From 7 am - 3 pm Except on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day...

Sugar 'n' Spice on Urbanspoon


  1. The place is the same but with a few changes I hope you'll like. Don't know if you've been back in the past 11 months but if not come back and try to finish the huge fluffy omellete.

  2. I wish they had biscuits & gravy - my fiance is allergic to eggs and for breakfast - there really isn't much he can have. It's why I haven't been back...

  3. Heather: There's a lot more than eggs, wispy thin pancakes and waffels at Check out the new web/blog site. It's a work in progress but the menu is posted. Catfish, Reubens, Turkey, Tuna & Chicken Salad, Burgers, Soups, etc., etc.

  4. SRF - you really should add biscuits & gravy to the breakfast menu! There is nothing on it without eggs and my fiance is allergic!

  5. Heather - Sugar n' Spice does serve biscuts & gravy just not everyday and I promise your husband can find plenty to choose from without eggs, really.

  6. Come on back to Sugar N' Spice this year. We are celebrating our 70th Anniversary and we have a new look menu, we now serve dinner until 8 pm on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, and the store has much newer look than the pictures in your blog post. Hope to see you at Sugar N' Spice soon!
