Highly recommend this place. One of us had soup and sandwich, the other a salad. We were both happy with our choices. Excellent food. Very reasonable prices.

My husband and I both chose the pot pie and it was good - the kids meals were not bad. Overall it was a nice place in a very interesting building.

It should come without saying, but this café does not serve coffee, by virtue of being located in the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. The only hot beverages that they serve are hot herbal tea and hot cocoa. Still, it's a great place to meet up...More

Love this restaurant. Excellent sandwich, soup choices. And of course their pot pies are famous. They renovated their ordering line since my last visit. Now much easier to order, pay, etc. Still, you are left wondering at the end whether to bus your tray or...More
