Family owned and operated since 1967, Sugar Shack in Huntington Beach is a definite local (and visitor) favorite. Try the Main Street Burrito, or for the little ones, the Mini Special. Hang out on the patio and watch the surfers come and go from the beach to their favorite breakfast spot.

Salt & Straw

One of the latest additions to Downtown Disney®, Salt & Straw is an iconic scoop shop offering exciting and unique ice cream flavors such as Strawberry Honey Balsamic with Black Pepper and Pots of Gold & Rainbows, which features cereal-steeped sweet milk and a mashup of Lucky Charms marshmallows.
