Inside Sugar n' Spice's Vibrant New Over-the-Rhine Location

Cincinnati's cult favorite breakfast eatery Sugar n' Spice officially opened up their much-anticipated Over-the-Rhine location in the former Joe's Diner on July 11. The Paddock Hills eatery, which opened in 1941, is well-known for its "wispy thin" pancakes, vibrant decor and rubber duckies that come with every meal — elements that traveled to its second branch. You can expect many of your favorites, in addition to a few new pork-infused dishes like the cubano and eggs benedict with pulled pork. Sugar n' Spice OTR is located at 1203 Sycamore St. in Over-the-Rhine
