Stopped here on a recent bus tour while visiting the area. Great place to eat - very generous portions on my sandwich. It was very good. The people in this area were super nice - great view from the top floor!!

A buffet style restaurant with amazing cinnamon rolls! If you're touring Temple Square the Nauvoo Cafe is conveniently located on the south east corner and is housed within the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. Cafeteria-style restaurant with reasonable pricing makes the Nauvoo Cafe a great resting spot on Temple Square.

They have a terrific turkey pot pie. Do not operate heavy machinery afterward. Carver sandwiches are great. The quantity doesn't make you feel like it's as good a value as Lion House Pantry, but the Italian roast beef sandwich is excellent. Coca Cola pork loin sandwich is supposedly the most popular. The turkey avocado sandwich is great. Dining on Main... More

Sandwiches are made on the spot - I like their pork - which is carved off a large piece. You can order what kind of bread you like, then it's run through a "toaster" to heat the sandwich and melt the cheese. Condiments are optional and I like to ask for a little cranberry relish on the side. Makes for... More

We'd spent the morning in the "Temple vicinity" and wanted somewhere quick for a sandwich. The sandwich ordering system is a short production line where you specify the size and type of bread you want then the fillings. We had a bit of a problem with the staff not understanding our request, perhaps because they were not paying attention ?... More

Nice cafe next to temple square. Loved the cranberry turkey sandwich. Wife and daughter had the tomato and asiago soup. It was different and it had lots of spice. To my taste it was closer to a sauce than a soup. For a quick decent meal not too bad.

Conveniently located in the bottom corner of the Joseph Smith Memorial building at Temple Square, this little cafe is the perfect spot for a quick lunch if visiting the downtown Salt Lake area. As mentioned, the sandwiches are well priced for a downtown cafe and are quite thick with freshly carved meat! Soups have that homemade taste and you can... More

I had the coca cola pork loin sandwich and a bowl of new england clam chowder. Anna was my sandwich maker and she was wonderful, she made a great sandwich with all the trimmings, she was fast and friendly. The place has a nice atmosphere . after a long day on Temple Square this place is a nice pit stop

I've eaten here a few times and each time the food has been excellent. They have sandwiches which are very good. The turkey cranberry and the turkey avocado are both very good. We went in thinking of getting a sandwich and then saw the turkey pot pies. They looked big and worth a try. We both got a pie and... More
