Every town in the U.S. has chain diners and fast food breakfast joints aplenty. But when it comes to high-quality breakfast restaurants, very few places can claim as many as Salt Lake City. Whether you're craving heaping portions of hot, salty food or a fast and light fare with a side of delicious coffee, you'll find what you're looking for along the Wasatch Front.
Those based out of downtown have a number of options. Lamb's Grill Cafe is located in the heart of the city - and though the name might have you guessing “steakhouse, ” this is actually one of Salt Lake's best and most affordable breakfast establishments. The oldest restaurant in Salt Lake City, Lamb's serves classic, American-style breakfasts. But if Lamb's looks packed, head over to the Judge Cafe - another downtown classic offering satisfying, homemade, morning meals.
Those venturing away from downtown would be well served to drive (or bike) up Emigration Canyon and visit Ruth's Diner. A Salt Lake staple since 1930, this eatery offers southwest-inspired breakfasts to die for. Each table receives a side of delicious “mile high” biscuits - so do yourself a favor and come hungry.
If Ruth's is packed (and it often is), consider heading south to the Blue Plate, a rather stylized, hip diner in the 21st and 21st neighborhood. Offering delicious portions of “normal” and vegetarian cuisine, Blue Plate is one of Salt Lake's top breakfast restaurants. Come early to avoid crowds here - and whether you're a vegetarian or not, you should absolutely try the veggie benedict.
If good coffee is an important part of your breakfast, consider swinging by the Bad Ass Coffee Company to enjoy an espresso drink and a quick breakfast. Though not a sit-down restaurant, this cafe offers a wide selection of muffins, scones, and cinnamon rolls. Bad Ass Coffee also has some of the area's only boiled bagels! This coffee shop with the colorful name specializes in Hawaiian coffees, which grow rich and flavorful on the islands' lush volcanic slopes. The shop itself has a coastal feel with rough woods and rustic accents. Patrons hang out with steaming cups of java, anticipating the buzz that comes from high-quality beans. (801-265-1182)
