Quick and yummy food.

Great carver style sandwiches. They also had pot pie, salads, etc. Served cafeteria style, many tables inside but also tables out the door and into the center of the big plaza area under the trees.

Stopped in to spend some time and so glad we found this gem of a cafe. We were there during breakfast time and the menu was so tempting we couldn't resist. We were eating lunch later upstairs but the call of warm caramel and blueberry muffins could not be denied. Well priced and generous portions.

We visited Temple Square, and this was close by. We shared a turkey cranberry sandwich, and we were pleased with the hand carved turkey, and the ciabatta bread - this is a good sandwich. We were also happy to have shared, because we were not likely to be able to finish if we each had a sandwich. A nice quick... More

Decent for sandwiches if you break for a meal during your research. It is a cafeteria. You place your order at the beginning, but if you want a salad, they are pre-packaged at the end of the line.

This cafe has easy options for food in historic Salt Lake. Particularly if you are rushed for time this is a great option. The food is fine, nothing amazing.

This restaurant is on the ground floor of the building. You order from the counter and they bring the food to you. The food was good but not great. I had the tuna and they added bean sprouts (which I do not care for). But you get plenty of tuna on your sandwich.

I stopped by to see the lobby of the Joseph Smith Memorial Building and spotted Nauvoo in the corner of the building. It was early evening and I was kinda hungry but didn't want a big meal. I got a half of a turkey club and it was delicious. They use sliced off the bird turkey breast and other fresh... More

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!!
