    I really love this place. I can hang out as long as I want before work. Great selection of desserts. One of my guilty pleasures! Need an updated bathroom though.

    Cheap and yummy breakfast food. Great service. Open 24/7 and has breakfast food all day!

    Surprisingly calm considering it's location. Don't let the counter fool you—seat yourself for table service, and pick a table in the back, shielded from the hubbub of the street.

    A great little café that will satisfy your sweet tooth. The mint chocolate chip ice cream and the red velvet cake are out of this world!

    Pancakes and French Toast are really good and the portions are HUGE! They come with a serving of assured fruit and powdered sugar on top.

    I worked here. AVOID baked goods! They put the day-old out and leave flies having babies in their pies). The BBQ chicken is best in the city though.

    The cupcakes I had were kinda lame. The snicker and oreo cookie one were just vanilla cupcakes with flavored icing. Shoulda just got the red velvet.

    It's a shame that tourists head straight to places like Magnolia's or Crumbs - Sugar has the best Red Velvets in New York City, full-stop.

    Partying ‘til dawn is easy to do in the LES. Wind down with a late night/early morning snack at the 24-hour Sugar Café.

    amazing food if you want to wait a while. 25 minutes for a really thin turkey burger doesn't cut it. other than that, the food is great!

    Made the classic rookie mistake of ordering based on looks and was enticed by the tiramisu. Should've stuck to the red velvet - tiramisu was dry and weirdly lumpy. $5 for a huge square - save your $$

    24/7 baked goods? I'll be having that. Many sugar-free late nights have been avoided by the acquisition of one of their very handy Red Velvet cupcakes.

    Very unaccommodating, wouldn't sub out home fries & toast for a small salad, that's $2extra. Worst service and so-so food but I keep making an appearance.. not sure what that says about my character..

    The coffee is good. Cakes not bad but alai not too good. I.e. Red velvet was too much dry and roux icing too heavy.

    Muy lindo lugar. Fuí la noche que mi novía cumplía años, y lo empezamos ahí con una torta, un café y una velita que el mismo mozo me prestó para eso. Totalmente recomendable.
