I went on a trek this week to Park City, UT to see Dawes. It was absolutely FREEZING, but fantastically amazing. On the way back home we stopped at a little gem called Heber City Café. I didn’t at all expect it to be like it was. I was thinking alright, so we are going to this café on the edge of town. There will be cheap coffee, bacon and probably pancakes that taste like bacon. BUT no.
First of all, the café looks like it is part of a ghost town which was rediscovered and spruced up. It just has this wonderful old-timey feel.
We walk in and the place is really comfortable. The walls are this lovely green color with brown trim that feels natural and there are pretty little hanging lights. The menu is written on a chalkboard that promises organic selections that are as local as possible. I was reaaaaal pleased. The owners were fantastic and friendly. The atmosphere was great. The soundtrack would hop around from Marley, to Jack Johnson, to doo-wop. I was totally smitten with it all.
We ordered some coffee from Millcreek, a local roaster out of SLC, UT, which was delish. I ordered the Turkey Bagel and a side salad with lemon Dijon vinaigrette. The dressing was made in house and it was sweet and light. The bagel was perfect; not too dense. I also sampled my boyfriend’s French fries with homemade ketchup. UH YEAH. They were the bomb. A slight crisp on the outside paired with the tanginess of the ketchup… All in all I think the best way to describe the food at this joint is fresh.
If you make your way to Heber City stop by at Heber City Café.
You won’t be disappointed!
