Great quick lunch place. All sandwiches are made from scratch. The place was packed when we were there. That indicates that the locals use it a lot. My goof was that I asked for coffee which is a "no-no" for Mormons.

Wonderful quick food, not fast food, all items on the menu are made from scratch. The turkey pot pies are out of this world good, packed with veggies and plenty of moist meat. The crust is homemade and includes a bottom crust, this is a meal all by itself as the pie is a really nice size. Salads are also... More

Wow, what a beautiful place. This car is located directly across from Temple Square from which you can see the beautiful lights of Christmas. We love the lights and festive atmosphere. But this location, dating back for decades is fascinating. The ambience and architecture is delightful. We met with friends whom we had not seen in years, and enjoyed their... More

The Nauvoo Café is a warm inviting Café. I’ve been several times and my favorite is their Turkey Pot Pie. Loads of warm food in a bowl with a very flakey crust. I’ve also had the Sandwiches which are very good also. The breads they use are fresh. During the Christmas Season around the Temple Square Area this is a... More

But while standing in line I watched as they made their brisket sandwich and I switched over my order.My husband expected I was going to order the pork but he said the brisket was excellent.

Sorry for the pun! We had a 3.5 hour layover in SLC, so decided to take the train into the City. Although we are not LDS, we wanted to see the Temple and ended up near the Nauvoo Cafe. The breakfast menu is somewhat limited. I spotted this bundle of deliciousness at the end of the serving line- Creme Brûlée... More

My husband and I both had the Coca Cola pork sandwich. They were excellent. The staff was very friendly and the place was very clean. It was a very enjoyable meal.
