For our last night we decided to try Niche after biking by it on our way back from Pago the night before. This is another restaurant who is going for the farm to table fare and we had a good meal. We share the grilled artichoke and it was great. My friends had the Lamp dish and another the Chicken... More

We love Niche and we recommend it to everyone. Try the lamb and the key lime pie. It's always the first restaurant that pops into my head when someone asks where we should eat.

Loved the outside patio seating on the east side, not too hot with plenty of shade. Went for lunch and had the butternut squash soup and salad. It was different from most places, but so delicious my mouth waters just thinking about it. I had a yummy salad - large portions - fresh, crisp greens, fresh fruit and the dressing... More

We loved the atmosphere and experience. It was nice to enjoy just your basic food in a restaurant without all the other unnecessary ingredients.

Really nice space. Food is simple but fresh and delicious. Would most definitely recommend the Niche breakfast plate.

This was a lunch, so perhaps dinner might be better. Nice location in a residential area, as many restaurants are. The atmosphere is upscale modern with rotating artwork. This day's artwork was brilliant WWE-type photographs. Seriously! The photographs were brilliant and I'm not a WWE-type fan. Ah, but the food. Hard to decide among many interesting dishes, but with the... More

Our first time at Caffe Niche, just east of the University of Utah, within walking distance of Kingsbury Hall and Pioneer Theater. I like trying a variety of small plates--scallops, porcino mushrooms, beets with goat cheese, wonderful carrots in tahini, something I'll definitely try at home. Locally sourced, red and purple carrots. My husband enjoyed their blue cheese and nut... More

I was with dear friends. It was the first time we had ever been to this very eclectic place. My host did make reservations which was a very smart thing to do. We were seated in the dining room and the buffet brunch was easily explained. Other than cocktails, espresso drinks and orange juice, everything came with the meal. I... More

I had a Lamb dish that lacked flavor and clam chowder that was just ok. There were three in our party and there were no raves. Maybe this restaurant is better for lunch?
