Sugar n’ Spice adding second location in iconic OTR space
Beloved Paddock Hills restaurant Sugar n’ Spice is expanding to a second location with plans to open in an iconic Over-the-Rhine space later this year.
Sugar n’ Spice, which has built a cult following over nearly 80 years of business at 4381 Reading Road, will open its second location in the former Joe’s Diner on Sycamore space at 1203 Sycamore St. in Over-the-Rhine. The goal is to open in time for the winter holidays.

Sugar n’ Spice: A Wispy-Thin Diamond Anniversary
In 1941, the Cincinnati Reds played baseball at Crosley Field, the streetcar was a popular form of transportation and mobsters were running rampant across the river in Kentucky. It was also the year that Mort Keller opened a breakfast restaurant called Sugar n’ Spice in Paddock Hills. Seventy-five years later, Sugar n’ Spice remains one of the city’s most popular places for people of all ages and socio-economic groups to enjoy breakfast and lunch.
