We had heard good words about Sugar and Spice, so after our failed attempt at a hostel breakfast (see the entry in this journal on Hostel Mamallena) we went here to give it a try. It opened at 8:00am, even on Sunday, and at 7:45 there were already six people, plus us, waiting to get in.They opened the doors promptly at 8:00, and worked through that early rush very efficiently. They had about 10 items or so on their breakfast menu, as well as three specials listed on a white board out front. I ordered the vegetable omelet and my boyfriend had the breakfast burrito. Both came with coffee or tea (such good coffee!) and mine arrived with a tiny plate of cantaloupe and two slices of their delicious bread. Each meal (coffee included) was $4.50.I also ordered a muffin to get us started while we waited for our entrees. A waitress brought the coffee within a couple of minutes of when I placed my order; I didn't even have the muffin open yet! It was a Red Velvet Lemon muffin -- definitely cake for breakfast. Yummy.The display case is full of deliciousness. You can choose from about eight flavors of muffins (we came back later for a blueberry one), cinnamon rolls, and a variety of turnovers (the coconut one caught my eye). They also have loaves of bread for sale, and I bought a raisin walnut loaf for $4 to take home with us. The chocolate cherry loaf was especially tempting.We loved it so much we went back later for another coffee. Lunch specials like tomato soup and three-cheese grilled cheese sandwiches were listed, but we weren't that hungry. My boyfriend had black coffee, as he does, for $0.75, and I ordered a delightful caramel cappuccino for $2.00. We shared that blueberry muffin I mentioned earlier.High fives all around for Sugar and Spice. Next time, I am purposely avoiding hotels and hostels that offer breakfast so we have an excuse to go here.
