Really great sandwiches, classy, classy place. Super clean, refined space off the main lobby, big portions, quiet and elegant. Kids liked ordering off a board and sliding their trays while watching their meat being sliced. A very fancy cafeteria :)

First thing I noticed about the menu were the prices. Everything was very reasonable. Imagine trying to get quality, fresh, good portioned food at a cheap price elsewhere. The turkey pot pie- $8.99 with a hearty side salad was the best pot pie I've ever had. The turkey club sandwich was loaded with moist and fresh turkey chunks. Great meal.... More

A lovely little cafe, a cross between cafe and cafeteria. The half of a coca-cola marinated pork sandwich was ample. The decor is very cool. Pleasant help and fast service. The pork was tender and flavorful.

Great locally fresh made lunch in a beautiful building with tons of history. The service was fast, friendly and good. We had a turkey cranberry sandwich with a piece of fresh berry pie and it was tasty good. Well worth the stop

Had lunch at Nauvoo Cafe when visiting the Temple Square. It is small but very popular cafe. The food looked and tasted great. The freshly cooked turkey breast looked irresistible, but my favorite thing was the salad dressings especially the one with cranberry (?) in it. The pricing is very reasonable for downtown even though the portion is not big.

Try the health salad with fruit, nuts and plenty of pleasure all in one! Prices are low and the service is wonderful.

We ate dinner here before attending a performance at the Conference Center. It was a great place to eat! The pot pies & sandwiches were delicious. The side salads were huge & so fresh! Prices are very reasonable too.

We attended the noon organ concert at the Tabernacle and were hungry afterward. This clean and efficient cafe just on the other side of the Temple was just what we needed. Cafeteria style salads and sandwiches were amazing. Great pie. Good prices for a "captive" audience.
