While Salt Lake City may be best known for it’s proximity to the Wasatch Mountains and world class ski resorts, it should be better recognized for its vibrant foodie culture. Many neighborhoods in the immediate Salt Lake area have corner restaurants that bind the community together. With its many awards, one that stands above the rest is the chic, Caffe Niche.
With ample parking along the street as well as a lot behind the building, getting into Caffe Niche is very easy. The food at Caffe Niche is made with fresh ingredients that you can pronounce which are delivered from local farmers daily. The menu options are sustainably sourced whenever possible. They offer a wide variety in their menu. Some examples of this variety are traditional American breakfast foods, fish tacos, and Thai pasta. Other more unique options that I would love to try would be the local Utah elk chimichurri burgers, roasted chicken with vegetables, or one of the vegetarian dishes. With the exception of Sunday brunch menu, most of their dishes focus on a larger portion of vegetables and a smaller side of meat. Gluten-free options are available.
I stopped in for Sunday brunch and had their breakfast sandwich which consisted of a homemade english muffin, local free range eggs, bacon, and a homemade hollandaise sauce. The sandwich came with a side of hash browns and house-made ketchup. The service was top notch as our coffee and water never reached the bottom of our glasses and the food came out very quickly. This dish was very reasonably priced as were most items on the menu, this is something of a mission statement here. Local beers and liquor drinks are also available as well as a different menu for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner. Caffe Niche has a wide variety of food options to please any palate.
