In the winter the pot pie here is comfort food manna from heaven! Any other time it's the sandwiches that make this place so great!

I found this place through Trip Advisor and decided to try it bc of the pics and good reviews. It is located in the John Smith buildings. When we arrived it looked more like a glorified cafeteria...which I guess it really what it is since the majority of the upper floors are office spaces. But don't let that deter you!!... More

Cafeteria style ordering of food. Ate breakfast only. Modest options. Friendly staff. Great prices. Great location because of the building, but eating space is simple. Caffeine addicts beware, NO coffee. But the do serve fountain pop.

Excellent omelets made fresh and quickly by a friendly staff. Great location, easy to get to (will get easier once the construction is finished).

This restaurant is in the beautiful Joseph Smith Bldg.on Temple Square and, therefore, very handy while spending a day taking in the sights of the Square. The selection is limited but very well prepared and tasty. It is Mormanland, so there is no iced tea served here.

I think the title of my review says it all. The cafe is set up cafeteria style. I had the brisket sandwich and homemade soup. Highly recommend, especially given the lobby outside which is simply amazing.

This is a great cafeteria style restaurant in downtown Salt Lake. The menu is limited but everything we tried was good. The service is fast and friendly. The only down side is that for the amount of money you spend, you don't get much food.
