Sugar n’ Spice in Paddock Hills is the Breakfast Destination of Your Dreams


Huge, fluffy omelets and “wispy-thin” pancakes have made Sugar n’ Spice a bona fide breakfast institution for almost 80 years. One of the city’s most popular places for people of all ages and socio-economic groups to dine and socialize, owner Steven Frankel is the guy behind the genius marketing plan of giving patrons little rubber ducks originally from Ace Toys on Reading — and passing out fried macaroni and cheese bites during long waits. It’s a charming quirk that keeps people coming back.
