The food was some of the best I had on a two-week trip in Utah. They use interesting ingredients and herbs to make delicious dishes. In addition, the decor of the restaurant is unique.

I really liked this farm to table restaurant. Stopped by while driving around the Bryce Canyon area. Went for lunch, but had breakfast. My intent was to have lunch. However, our server mentioned that they served breakfast until 2:30 PM. The breakfast menu was amazing with some unique dishes. The blue corn pancakes with cinnamon butter, real maple syrup, and...

After five days of eating around a camp stove, I happened upon this little gem of a restaurant on a dusty highway on my way to Bryce Canyon. Although off-season, we were lucky to get squeezed in and the meal was worth the wait. The jalapeno-spiked chowder was sensational as was the house-smoked trout pate and the green chili lamb... More

To our surprise the restaurant did not have burgers or steaks for lunch as you would expect from a grill. However the food was amazing I had a BLT with cream cheese which was delightful

Food here was truly memorable. Rarely does one eat so well even in a city. Staff did great job and chef even better! Wholesome local ingredients were thoughtfully prepared, presented and eaten!

This was one of the only restaurants I had planned to visit while on a road trip in Utah. It turned out to be one of the best meals I've ever had (no joke). We arrived for early dinner and was so surprised by the atmosphere. It was romantic and quiet and you could tell this was a quality place... More

The menu items are fresh from their farm! This place does everything well. Pick a meal any meal. The town of Boulder is so tiny and it always surprises us that they have such excellent places to eat! The biscuits are amazing. The sage, pear sausage amazing. The soup was delicious. I only have great things to say about this... More

It's everything you have heard and more. Local sourced breakfast, lunch and dinner. Eggs are from local hens and from local farms and gardens. Made with love and served with humility. Expanded wine offers including some newly added cocktails.

After hearing glowing reports on this place I made a point to eat here on a road trip of the Utah National Parks. It did not disappoint. Coffee was excellent, menu inventive, food delicious, service okay, and the ambiance memorable. The setting and architecture make this a special place and I will try to time my next visit for dinner.

We had heard wonderful reviews both here on TA and in person so our expectations were quite high. First the good news, the food is excellent very creative and the staff are more than happy to discuss ingredients and recipes with you. The not so good was that we had to wait quite some time even though there were open... More
