Lazy Day Café

Open Tuesday – Sunday 8-2
Breakfast Served all Day
Don’t be scared off by the strange strip mall location. This small family owned business is truly one of the best breakfast stops in the valley. You will find and extremely friendly and laid back atmosphere. The kitschy décor gives you little bit of a retro diner feeling. It is a great place to enjoy a solo breakfast if that is your thing. You can grab a seat at the counter and read the paper or chat with some of the regulars. The Lemon Pancakes are not to be missed, so light and fluffy, they melt in your mouth. The made from scratch special Buttermilk Syrup is the thing that really makes them spectacular. Really even if pancakes aren’t your thing order these an appetizer for the table so everyone can have a taste. You can find most of your favorite breakfast and brunch option like Eggs Benedict and Biscuits and Gravy and best of all everything on the menu is under $10. Oh and parking is never a problem.
Sweet Lake Biscuits and Limeade
54 West 1700 South
YES! Now you can get the limeade from the Downtown Farmers market all year long. Sweet Salt Lake makes the most delicious and refreshing summer drink you’ve ever had! They use fresh limes and mint leaves, organic cane sugar, and they make it for you fresh on the spot. Offering several traditional flavors like your classic Mint and Raspberry Limeade, or some more adventurous flavors like Habanero or Honeydew Cucumber. For a first visit you might want to stick with what made them famous and go for one of their biscuit concoctions. Check out THE HOSS which is a Biscuit topped with a fried chicken breast, egg, bacon, cheddar, topped with sausage gravy. Or If Fried Chicken for breakfast isn’t your thing try the T-ROSE: a Biscuit served with portabella mushroom, egg, asparagus, swiss and topped with mushroom gravy. If Biscuits aren’t your thing they do offer other options like organic wheat pancakes, and an open-faced sourdough toast with asparagus, egg, and parmesan. They also offer lunch items like four house made salads, all of which are prepared with fresh, organic greens.

Amour Spreads got their beginnings at the Salt Lake Farmer’s Market too! John and Casee Francis started making organic, from scratch, gorgeous jams & jellies from locally grown food…some of it they picked themselves! They opened Amour Café on July 4th of this year and is a darling café off the beaten path. They serve savory egg plates, yogurt parfait with granola, a huge selection of hand-made gelato and a selection of ridiculously beautiful pastries made by Chef Amber. If you want to escape to a quiet little café for a quiet little breakfast, you must try Amour Café.

Saturday and Sunday
We’ve highlighted Manoli’s before, but we love this place! And, if you hate waiting in line for breakfast on the weekend, come to this undiscovered restaurant. You can find Manoli himself behind the line cooking favorites like Biscuits and Gravy, Eggs Benedict and Quiche. But you will also find breakfast with a Greek flair like Loukaniko Eggs (with Greek sausage & yogurt) and Citrus Salmon Dako (with citrus-Ouzo cured salmon!). There’s outdoor seating while the weather is still nice and the décor is modern, clean and fresh. And, you won’t find better service anywhere in Salt Lake City!

Another amazing restaurant by Scott Evans (Finca, Pago, East Liberty Tap House, Trestle), this is an easy, laid back restaurant for friends to gather any time of day. Breakfast is served all day and is everything you want: Sour Cream Flapjacks, Pecan Waffles, Country Fried Steak & Eggs and Shrimp & Grits. They also have salads and sandwiches for those who aren’t in the mood for breakfast. This place is fun, reasonably priced and delicious.
