Believe the hype - this place is great! You can tell from the start it's going to be that way by the amount of locals there. The place was packed for breakfast but we were seated within five minutes and breakfast was on our table that fast after ordering. I had the French Toast Foolishness and every part of it... More

Let me start by saying I did not get a breakfast item, I got a good hamburger and fries. I should have gotten an omelet. The place was full at 1 pm. Everyone else was eating omelets and such. The menu was tilted towards that sort of fare and they had a good selection of usual and unusual omelets which... More

My family of 6 stopped here on a quick trip to Salt Lake City. We had just gotten ff a 6 hour flight and were starving. Although the place initially looks busy, everyone is seated quickly. It was obviously a local favorite, all of the staff knew everyone that was coming in. Our food came very quickly and was large... More

I love the corned beef hash, but everything here is delicious! Great service. Usually a bit of a wait, and the patrons are packed in like sardines, but the food trumps the crowds!

The Park Cafe... doing it right. Perhaps the most efficient, friendly, clean, delicious, pleasant dining experience I've had in a loooooong time. And I eat all over and all the time. These guys are all that's right in the restaurant and service industry. If the rest of the world ran as efficiently as this place, we'd be living in a... More

We found this tiny little place downtown and even though it was late morning on a Monday, it was quite crowded. Since there were just 2 of us, we got seated quickly but larger parties waited along the sidewalk. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. Not on the menu, but available was gluten free pancakes! They were great with blueberries... More

This is my third time having breakfast at The Park Cafe, I've been here once a year, usually before leaving SLC. Every time I've tried different things and every time I had an average experience. Today I had a Jazz Omelette with hashbrowns, nothing to really be remembered. The omelette was fine, covered in cheddar that makes everything better, the... More

From a distance this restaurant appeared like a regular house. I believe this restaurant famous among the locals then the tourist. The location is great, just beside the Liberty Park. So if you want to grab something to eat it after your morning jog, just crossed the street. The crowded are mixed, many joggers with pets, older generation or neighbor... More

I travel a lot for business so I am always looking for a place that gives me a flavor of the area. The Park Cafe was the perfect place to enjoy my meal. Overlooking the park across the street, experiencing the unique space and loving the French Toast meal made this experience better than I had even thought. Great place... More
