The Park Cafe

IMAG2313I’ve been looking for a good breakfast spot that is close to my apartment since I moved downtown in May.  I often ride my bike in the morning at Liberty Park and I’ve always noticed a ton of people sitting on the outdoor patio (or waiting to get inside) a small cafe across from the park.  I finally made my way over there this past Saturday after a short bike ride at the park.

We didn’t actually step foot inside for more than 5 seconds, because all I did was ask for a table outside and we were lead back out to the patio, so I don’t really know what the inside is like, but I have read some reviews that say it is a bit crowded.

The outside patio is great, assuming it isn’t too hot.  Thankfully we got there early enough on Saturday before it got too hot.  It was probably a cool 85 degrees at 10 AM, before hitting a high of 105 for the day.

The patio has great views of people walking and running by and also some views of the park across the street. I like to think of Liberty Park as a mini version of Central Park right in the heart of SLC, with its ponds, aviary, sand volleyball & basketball courts, ferris wheel, merry go round, and many other things to do.

The food was typical breakfast food, but really large portions. The thick cut bacon and “Park potatoes” were probably my favorite. Take a look at the menu for all of the options.

Needless to say, I ordered way too much food, but what I was able to eat, it was great. I was totally stuffed and still had a lot left on my plate, so it is well worth the price.

I’ll definitely be back, even if I just stop in some morning and order coffee and sit out on the awesome patio.
