Lots of fresh choices. I had the red trout over greens and red lentils. It was delicious. There is also a full bar.

I am never disappointed at Red Butte Cafe. We ordered the chopped Brussels Sprouts appetizer and shared the Chicken Fajita. Ample portion to share. Great ambulance. Love this neighborhood gem.

This restaurant is in a quirky, oddly shaped strip mall on Foothill Drive. We ate a light dinner there because it was convenient. We were really quite pleased with our meals. The service was a little sketchy (the staff were having much too much fun chatting with one another) but the menu offered some nice options and we both enjoyed... More

I stayed up the street from the bakery and ate here on two occasions, once for lunch and once for dinner. Lunch is a bit crowded, but the food made it worth the while. Dinner time the place is a little quieter and people are not nearly as rushed. The food here is wonderful and the baked goods are very... More

Recommended by our B&B host, it did not disappoint. My wife had the citrus glazed shrimp and i had the salmon with butternut squash and arugula. Great.

Red Butte Cafe has been a family favorite of ours for years. Located on Foothill Boulevard in Salt Lake City, about a... More

We went around 2pm on Sunday, in time for Sunday brunch. Impressive selection of breakfast items as well as hot/cold sandwiches, Mexican choices, and salads. I chose the trout, eggs and potatoes and was pleasantly surprised to receive a full filet. My sister had the tacos and received a full plate of fresh food. The waiter was very nice and... More
