So, for the past couple of days, I’ve been recommending where to eat and drink during your visit to Park City, Utah. Now, let me tell you the best places to grab a great breakfast so you can cure that nagging hangover from a long night of partying. Also, to add to the mix, I threw in some quick bites and places to carb-load before a long day of Sundance movie watching and/ or hitting the slopes!
Best Breakfast and Quick Bites in Park City:
The Back Door Delicatessen – This little café was Voted Best sammie in Park City! It’s located right next to the Ticket Box Office for your Sundance ticket purchasing convenience. 50+ yummy sandwiches and great espressos too. Great for grab and go. Get in, then get to the theater!
Wasatch Bagel Co. (1 mile / 5 min ride) from the main downtown drag. If you feel like you gotta get out of Main St. to something more “local”, get on the bus – it’s FREE and get some damn good bagels, burgers and everything in between.
The Bridge Café – Located directly at the bottom of the Town Lift on Main Street, The Bridge serves up breakfast all day and is inspired by Brasilian cuisine. I loved the Cristo Redentor which is basically a ham and cheese sandwich made into French Toast. It’s delish! (note: They are sometimes closed for private events during Sundance, call ahead before you go!)
350 Main – Brunch it up! Bloody Mary’s and Mimosa’s for $5 + big portions! Get the gourmet Chicken and Waffles. ’nuff said!
Squatters – THE locals spot for drinks and grub. I asked a few residents and they all listed this place as their favorite Breakfast in PC. Which is funny, cause it’s a bar. You can go any time of day – It’s an award winning micro-brew pub which also happens to serve up great buffalo wings, chilaquiles and Utah scones! Located just up the street a bit from Main St. (about 5 min drive).
Maxwells Pizza – Great NY style pizza (Fat Kid Pizza)! Locals bar, lots of TVs + great beer selection. Homemafe Italian menu. Located in Kimball Junction, in the ground floor of Newpark Hotel – just 15 mins from the downtown Main Street.
Park City Coffee Roasters – Also located in Kimball Junction, PCR was voted Best Coffee in Park City. They are a small batch roaster offering Fair Trade coffees. There’s a satellite location located in the Kimball Art Center on Main Street. Stop in on your way to the Town Lift and grab a fresh hot cup of joe to go. You can ride the lift with your coffee to warm you up on your way up the slopes! (Note: They close up early. Call before you go!)
The Eating Establishment – Established in 1972 and is the oldest full service restaurant in Park City. Chicken fried steak and huge omelets on the cheap. Yum!
Atticus Books and Coffee – This is a super cute boutique shop which supports local writers, designers and artists. Great locally roasted coffees, teas and snacks. I loved their London Fog! Perfect place to grab a quick breakfast + a book and relax a while. Unique gifts, eclectic journals and handmade cards too!
Java Cow Coffee and Ice Cream – Think it’s weird to eat ice cream in the winter? Think again. It’s so cold outside, your ice cream won’t melt as you walk up and down Main! An independently owned shop and super cute too. Stop in during breakfast time for a coffee and a crepe or shop any of their cow-themed gifts; t-shirts, mugs, hats, pajamas, slippers, etc. Also, the ice cream here is made on-site with all natural ingredients and a custom locally made dairy mix. Yum! or should I say, Mooooo!
The town is pretty small so you’ll be a pro at navigating the area in no time. If there are any breakfast spots you think I may have left out, please leave a note in the comments section below! And I hope you enjoy Park City as much as I did!
