Great food, friendly staff, great happening atmosphere. Try the breakfast specials, all great, or the old standbys with must have potatoes.

We really enjoyed our breakfast here. The meals were delicious and portions were huge. Wait staff walks around constantly refilling drinks and removing unwanted plates. The food was served shockingly fast! The space is small and popular, so it's crowded, bit we never felt the service suffered because of it.

Ok THE PARK CAFÉ is just simply so damn good. Everything I had here was always super good. The place is a must go to. Wether you are visiting or you're a local, The Park Café has something for everyone. First of all it is located right across from the beautiful Liberty Park. So you can enjoy a nice walk... More

The park really does have some solid breakfast! The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is sometimes the service can be a little bleh. If you get the right waiter or waitress however it's 5 stars for food and service at that time.

Had breakfast here twice during our stay in SLC, and the food and service were excellent on both occasions. Lots of classic breakfast options, huge portions and reasonable prices. Kids loved it.

Party of 8 for breakfast, a little bit of a wait and a small restaurant, but once we were seated and they took our orders, the food arrived, hot and fresh, in less than 5 minutes. Huevos Rancheros (their special today) was excellent with the succulent roast pork, biscuits and gravy were excellent, our niece gave us a bite of... More

Ive eaten breakfast at the Park Cafe, across the street from Liberty Park,many times. Its always very busy and having to wait for a table isnt unusual. The wait is worth it. Excellent food and large portions. Highly recommended.

We had a 30 minute wait, but the food was delivered within minutes of ordering. Worth the wait. Their biscuits and gravy was great, but their French toast was the best my wife has ever had. There were real blueberries in their pancakes. A bonus was their service!

My wife and I had breakfast here and the food was awesome. When we arrived, there was a good line to be seated, but we were surprised how quickly they moved through it. My wife had the breakfast sandwich and I had the Michigan Hash. Our food came out fast, hot, and tasted great. The bill was very reasonable as... More

Being right next to a giant park and what I think is the Zoo makes this an ideal spot for families. We were with our college age son but enjoyed the setting. Service was very good and our food came out within 7-8 minutes of ordering! The outdoor seating area is just so-so but they do have some.
