Breakfast at its best

This little place is popular with the locals, travelers, hipsters, business folks, and young and old alike. Great service, great food, large portions, and quick service.

This place is phenomenal. Cool location overlooking a park (thus the name). There is a bit of a wait, so get your name on the list right away. The wait is worth it! Excellent breakfast, many choices. The serving sizes are huge. The flavor of the French toast, delicious. The omellettes are absolutely stuffed. Juices, fresh squeezed. Toast, top drawer... More

Disappointed. From pork hash to eggs/potatoes to over sized hamburgers equals blah breakfast choices. Hoping to find fresh local and vegetarian options. Even the granola is from Boulder, CO. Until more local diverse items are available, we can not recommend this cafe. Thanks for reading. The Bike Chaplain

First time visit. The wait wasn't too long for a Saturday brunch. The staff is very friendly. The coffee mug while you wait to be seated is a plus, specially on a chilly day. The food is okay. It tastes okay, but on the bland side. Needs more flavor. (even just a little more salt) The atmosphere is good, and... More

This was my first visit. We arrived shortly before closing time. We were seated quickly and our server was at our table when we sat down. The portions were large. The food tasted average. My hamburger was a tad too well done. The park potatoes didn't have much flavor. You are not offered a refill on your drink. They bring... More

Went here with a group of 6 on a weekday, after reading it was rated top breakfast in SLC. Turned out to be a very limited menu and only so-so food. Maybe we're spoiled by the Portland breakfast scene, but this was definitely not that interesting.

Finding this place being listed on many websites as being one of the top in the SLC area, we decided to give it a try. I was expecting a wait, but I'll have to warn you, you will HAVE to wait for at least 30-35 minutes (we were were only 2 people) any time of day. The restaurant serves breakfast... More

I took my nephew here for breakfast on a Wednesday and we were able to get a table relatively quickly. The food choices were different and unique from other breakfast diners in the area. The food was served quickly and was tasty and better than most breakfast fare here in Utah.
