  • "Went here for Sunday brunch. The spinach salad was very good, as was the classic eggs benedict. The hot chocolate milkshake was delicious. Service was friendly but not very attentive. The sweets all looked delicious."

  • "This place is really an ice-cream hang out and not dinner. My deal was a dinner for $79 complete. When the full price was listed I was stunned. The original cost was $175. I questioned the manager just to have her explain how an ice cream parlor could charge this amount. They had an appetizer portion of a green salad for $19. One can eat in a well known restaurant like Union Sq, Telepan, etc for less than this place. I would never go there again even for an ice-cream cone."

  • "Sugar and Plumm is a pretty attractive restaurant to the "with kids" set on the Upper West Side. We went on Wednesday night for a 7-year-old birthday celebration. While the food was good, the service was abysmal, due to no fault of the under-resourced, inexperienced staff. As far as I could tell, the restaurant is run by a 16 year-old host, a waiter meant to cover the entire dining room and the (also very young) kitchen staff. The crowd soon overwhelmed the staff. The toast to accompany our eggs came out 10 minutes later, we had to request dessert menus, chase down the waiter to order and were never told that they were out of one of our dessert orders - so that person simply went without. Owners - you need to hire some staff!"

  • "We went for a dinner reservation and it was nothing to rave about. We had the BBQ pulled pork burger, Corndogs, and Shrimp & Chips. If I ever go again I won't order any of the aforementioned plates. The food was bland and really left much to be desired for the prices we paid. I was really excited to get the Earthquake in a Fishbowl which is one of their most popular desserts; when we ordered it the waiter came back and said they didn't have any more vanilla ice cream so we chose a substitute. A few minutes later he comes back and says they don't have all the ingredients to make the dessert. I was REALLY disappointed and a little mad to say the least. I heard good things about Brunch so MAYBE we'll come back in the summer for that."

  • "While visiting New York a friend and I made the trip to the Upper West Side to Sugar and Plumm for a wonderful brunch. After deliberating over the very enticing menu, we chose the ham and gruyere buckwheat crepes. Wow! We both loved them - so different and SO yummy! My friend also wanted to try the beet salad (not sure how it appears on the menu) and it, too, did not disappoint. It is a combination of various types of beets, most of which we were unfamiliar. After brunch we enjoyed looking around their store that is the epitome of "eye candy" - macaroons, cookies, muffins, chocolate Eiffel Towers, high heels, and hand-decorated candies. I would highly recommend this wonderful spot for brunch or lunch while visiting New York City."

  • "We brought our boys to Sugar and Plumm for a birthday dinner. The food was good. Not outstanding, just good. That said, we all thought the french fries were delicious. Our server was very solicitous and attentive. We went on a Friday at 6pm and there were lots of other families dining. Sometimes the children at other tables were a bit loud, but we knew that it was a family-friendly restaurant, so it didn't bother us. It was a great place to have a family dinner for the boys' birthdays. The desserts are outstanding!"

  • "don't get me wrong.. the restaurant itself is really nice.. and pretty.. especially if you love sweets.. and have kids.. but i went to some girlfriends.. and we're all foodies.. so when the food came.. it looked great.. and was beautiful.. but the taste itself.. was only "EH.." i would probably never go back for brunch again.. cause the food was not all that cracked up to be.. but i was amazed when i first got there.. it's a cool place to bring little ones.."

  • "The food here is AMAZING! So far the items that I have tried on their menu have been delicious. Our waiter was very friendly. This is a great spot for children as well. But I would suggest to always make reservations because it does get crowded in there and their brownie a la mode is a shareable item :)"

  • "We came here for brunch on a Sunday afternoon. Both of us ordered Crepes. We agree that we should have gotten anything OTHER than crepes. They're made with buckwheat and do not have the soft, delicate thinness that make crepes such a delicious treat. The grasshopper milkshake, on the other hand, was a win. The place was much louder than expected and almost reminded me of a nursery. Not only were there many young families sitting around us, the décor looks like it's out of a candy shop for kids. All that being said, I would recommend it for dessert, after bedtime."

  • "It is an upper west side version of a kiddie party place. There was a children party at the end of the hall. The noise level was high. The children were busy up and down the hall. There is only a toilet for women. The children were playing and occupying the toilet. Our server was not attentive. He had to be flagged down or tracked down by other servers. I had a Cobb Salad and a taste of a Plumm burger. My mouth was dry during dinner and throughout the rest of the night. It is a quick bite noisy place with an expensive sit-down price. I had thought about going there for breakfast or brunch but now I am totally ruling that out."

  • "Ato papers was festive, staff were accommodating, lots of kid friendly food choices and the dessert theme was a hit. Food took slightly longer to come than we hoped, but when it did it was perfect for our teen birthday group."

  • "The breakfast options at this restaurant are different! They serve savory crepes and waffles in addition to traditional egg dishes. The crepes and waffles are well-prepared and come with a variety of fillings or toppings. For those who like sweeter options, there are the traditional waffles with syrup and crepes with sweet fillings."

  • "Waited 15 mins for brunch even with a reservation. Food was decent, but stick to the desserts and sweet treats. Service showed inexperience and they charged me for the wrong tables check."
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "I went here expecting a nostalgic experience I had at similar places as a kid and that should've been my first clue that this place would have lots of kids there but I wasn't thinking when I made the reservation. That said, our brunch was very tasty, the service was very good and the prices were inline. This would be a great place for me to go with my daughter, she would love it but if you're not looking to be surrounded by kiddies while you dine then this is not the spot for you. I went there with my GF and was just looking to grab a quite brunch at a throwback place so I was a bit disappointed with the noise level and all the kids birthday parties. On the flip side I found a new place that I look forward to taking my daughter to :-)"

  • "We were visitors in the area and booked brunch for 4 ahead of time. We enjoyed our brunch so much we came back on another day for dinner. S&P is a combination confectionary/bakery/restaurant and neighborhood gathering place. Lots of kids, but well behaved. It was noisy--to be expected. Our servers on both occasions were genial, very friendly and attentive without being obtrusive (they were very busy). We will definitely make a return trip the next time we are in NYC in the Upper West Side neighborhood."

  • "Great place to take the kiddies, but beware there are a lot of sweets and ice cream on display... Moderately priced, adults can enjoy crepes, waffles, delicious pancakes, and great ice cream and sorbets."
    Dined on 1/20/2014
  • "The food was yummy which is good, that's what you go for. It's obviously the place to go for upscale kid parties so if you want quiet conversation it's not the place to go. The baked goods available to eat in or take out looked unbelievable. My shrimp and grits was fabulous."

  • "Sugar and Plumm is one of my favorite restaurants in the city. The desserts are amazing and it is a great place to take anyone for their birthday or kids so they can indulge. The banana split comes with a high recommendation from me."

  • "Menu selections were unique...pork with waffles in a maple/bbq sauce...delicious! There was so much food we had leftovers. The portion served for the hummus was very generous; and very tasty too! The desserts were excellent."

  • "It is hard to respond to the rating system for this restaurant. When we arrived, it was filled with children and very loud. By the time we left, it was more like a morgue. The menu selections are wonderful for children. They even have a few things that might attract traditional adults. They have much for adults with the kid still in them. The ambience was too utlitarian for the price level, but children and their parents might love it. The food was well prepared, presented and abundant. The server was pleasant and helpful but so stretched that we sat long after our reservation before he could attend to us. The markups on the wine seemed astronomical. We had a bottle priced at $45 that you can find in stores for about $7. Dessert was great."

  • "crispy, sweet chicken and waffles, scrumptious sumo-size burger and cheese and mac were so good I ate much too much. next time I will take half my burger home and leave room for dessert. Thought 7:30 would be late for families but the parents need to have fun, too, sometimes. !! Reminds me of the Brooklyn ice cream parlors and candy stores of my childhood."
    Dined on 1/4/2014
  • "Place smells of cotton candy - like pure sugar. I ordered an egg white omelet and it was runny on the inside and our toast was burnt. Kids were sitting at neighboring tables eating waffles and ice cream and seemed super happy. So, if you have kids, go for it. Otherwise, I can't recommend it."

  • "We had a great time, all six of us. I have been their many times and this time brought a family with three girls, 14, 10 and 6. They loved it and enjoyed the food too. Parents also had a good time and we all agreed to return when they are back in NYC."

  • "My daughter and 7 year old granddaughter were visiting from the west coast so thought this would be a good place for a fun brunch. We only waited about 5 minutes for our table, servers were friendly. Kids breakfast was perfect. I had the swiss waffle - very good. My daughter had the spinach salad, she thought the dressing was very tart. The Hot Chocolate milkshake was yummy. The assortment of chocolates and candy available were great. Very loud with out of control kids, but think that was due to the season, will definitely return."

  • "The pulled pork waffles is amazing and was so filling that I couldn't even try the dessert. My friend ordered the mushroom waffles which was above average but not on par with my meal. Definitely coming again!"
    Dined on 12/21/2013
  • "I'm always pleased by the excellent food at this restaurant that would appear to be focused on dessert. I love the lemony chicken with spinach and the soups are terrific. My husband had the salmon salad, which was very fresh. My kids love the mac and cheese, plus fries. And the desserts are a real treat with a beautiful presentation."

  • "I expected Sugar and Plumm would have great desserts, but what I didn;t expect was for the food to be so amazing. The pork belly appetier and the chicken and waffels is to die for. I also know that everything else off the menu is great, so you really can't go wrong here. I will definitely come again."

  • "Even though I specifically made reservations for 2 with special request to be seated in a quiet area, my friend and I were seated smack in the middle of this noisy restaurant. Two-table seats at Sugar and Plumm are placed in one straight long row, sandwiched in between larger tables. Why does it have to be designed this way? There's no privacy whatsoever. We had couples on our left and right overhearing my and my friend's conversation even though we were speaking in low volume. Food was okay. I ordered a pulled pork waffle and was good. My friend ordered caramel waffles: $12 for one scoop caramel ice cream with 3 tiny waffles. So not worth it! What a shame that I thought I would have a good time here. Please go elsewhere!"

  • "My burger didn't come out the way I asked for it, but it was fixed. I think the real problem was children wandering around without parental supervision. One little girl kept coming up to me begging for french fries which was a little strange... After our meal, there was a grease fire in the kitchen which resulted in a fire alarm and 6 fire trucks. I've been here before and it was a lot calmer, I think they just had an off-day?"

  • "Not your typical Japanese restaurant. They are really serious about their food and eating here is comforting. I recommend the sashimi, miso cod, teriyaki, and beef filet mignon katsu with demiglace. Their tempura, dark miso soup, and chawanmushi are also so delicious! The owner is very nice too and remembers you after a couple of visits."

  • "We had a nice time at Sugar and Plumm. Admittedly, we went knowing we really want to share some desserts and we didn't have high expectations for the food. We each had the steak frites and we were happy with the meal. The desserts were terrific, especially the brownie sundae."
