Trying to beat the summer heat? We’ve got you covered: here are some great spots this season for great food and air conditioning.

If you’re a big foodie, Salt Lake City is the place to be. The city does well keeping our bellies full and our hearts happy. With a wide selection, it’s easy to get overwhelmed while trying to make a decision. It’s quite the scene, so let’s get into it.

Salt Lake Takes Brunch Very Seriously

Starting us off right is Urban Hill. Locally owned and located in the heart of downtown Salt Lake, this dining experience is one you don’t want to miss. The owner, Brooks Kirchheimer, has a commitment to “make every dining experience a special occasion.” Each dish is dressed to impress guests as they spend their morning enjoying hearty foods out on the town.

A few menu items that will catch your attention include their cinnamon toast crunch bread pudding, smothered avocado burrito and wide selection of beverages to wash down the good meal.

Served on Sundays only, Arlo brings a wide variety of brunch favorites to your taste buds. Located in the Avenues, this restaurant has a casual style to its dining experience making it a great spot for anyone to enjoy.

When you look at their menu, be sure to read the fine print that reads “our menu shifts regularly and change is inevitable.” This makes each time you go a new experience, making it a place you’ll keep returning to. I know I definitely will.

Even the French Like It

Also found in the Avenues is Marmalade Brunch House. New to the area, this restaurant is open daily serving brunch to everyone at any time. Their menu consists of brunch favorites with a French twist. Some highlights include beignets, crème brulée French toast, croque madame and many other selections.

This spot is bringing brunch back with style, so be sure to give them a try on your next visit to Salt Lake or are just feeling peckish.

We can’t forget about The Copper Onion. Found on Broadway Street, this is a go-to for many locals. Serving brunch every weekend, this restaurant has a comfortable dining experience for all to enjoy. Along with Marmalade, The Copper Onion is another American brasserie that serves a wide range of dishes from Cacio e pepe, duck poutine, shakshouka and many more.

The range of this restaurant is unbeatable, which just goes to show why it’s a local favorite.

Pig & a Jelly Jar finishes us off with a Southern style. Found on 9th and 9th in Salt Lake, this restaurant will make you feel right at home upon entering. A local business themselves, they partner with several other local farmers and businesses to keep their flavor unique to them.

“At Pig we believe food should be made with love, served with integrity and the dining experience unique.”

A few favorites from this menu include the chicken and waffles, ham hash and the BBQ pork sando.

Brunch Will Never End

Keep in mind that there are many other restaurants Salt Lake has to offer. These are just a few that catch the eye of many when visiting or celebrating a day off with some good food. Now go get some brunch, it’s the most important meal of the day!
