“Yum!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

We got the meal here as part of the Salt Lake City Pass and the food couldn't have been more appropriate. It was a cold day and walking in was like a breath of fresh air. The staff was exceptionally friendly and the food had a warm home-made feel to it. It was nothing fancy...just good quality food at a great price.

“Awesome home cooking!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

I went to SLC for a conference and I went to tour the Brigham Young house. The tour guide told me about this place so I decided to go for dinner. So cozy and intimate. The staff was friendly and the food was amazing! Herb Chicken, mash potatoes, salad and veggies made me feel like I was at home. Cafeteria style and good prices. The lion rolls are to die for! Try them with the fresh honey butter they have. So good - Will recommend for all travelers. Plus it is down the street from Temple Square and the Brigham Young tour.

“Lunch with friends.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Spend some time exploring the city and visit some of the stunning buildings that are open to all, then relax afterwards meeting friends here for lunch. Their honey butter and fresh bread rolls are second to none. A warm and welcoming place. I felt as though I was earing in a friends private home. It is a lovely building and the staff are friendly and helpful.

“Yummy Coca Cola Pork”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

Had the roast beef & coca cola pork. Both were good, but the pork is a must. They are also famous for their rolls. Everything was great!!!

“OK Food Convenient”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

My wife and I ate supper there before attending a show at the nearby Conference Center. Cafeteria style with reasonable prices. My chicken with artichokes was a bit dry but adequate.
