Sugar Shack is a long-time fixture in downtown Huntington Beach, California. It is located on the Main "drag" in the second block of Main Street. Owned by a hometown family that represents what's great about Surf City, the family not only has several world class surfers among their ranks, but also serves a ton of hotcakes to surfers ready to head for the ocean for a morning work-out.
One of many affordable restaurants in this quaint downtown district, Sugar Shack is open for breakfast and lunch, but only stays open for dinner one night - Wednesday.
