Logan has a special place in my heart. It’s the place where I first attended college. It’s the place where I first lived away from my family and bunked up with a random assortment of roommates. It’s the place where I first pursued my love of speech-language pathology. It’s the place where I made the greatest friends of my life. I love Logan.

 I treasure my three years in this tiny Cache Valley town and have such great memories there, many of which involve good eats (some better than others). Never fear- I’ve done all the work for you and made the perfect list of the best places to eat in Logan, Utah. Please note that this post has been updated since its original publication.

10. Pupuseria El Salvadoor

This recommendation definitely speaks to my low-income freshman budget, yet they are one of the best places to eat in Logan, Utah for a crazy low price. Pupusa: an El Salvadorian fried corn cake usually filled with cheese, beans, and often times meat. These pancake sized gems are best when served with curtido (slaw of cabbage, carrots, and onions) and tomato sauce.  They are made to order and will hit the spot if you’re looking for something savory and along the lines of comfort food. Pupuseria El Salvador (880 South Main Street, Logan, UT // 435.752.0676)

9. Even Stevens Sandwiches

I was so excited for all of my friends in Logan when Even Steven Sandwiches popped up on Main Street. This SLC original has a consistent, high-quality menu with delicious breakfast items (my favorites are the undergrad burrito or the breakfast sandwich- both with a medium egg and bacon always) and some of my favorite sandwiches around. If you haven’t been to Even Stevens before try their turkey pot roast or sprang chicken for two of my favorite sandwiches. The best part of all this? For every sandwich sold they donate a sandwich to a local nonprofit. #eattogive Even Stevens Sandwiches (131 N Main St, Logan, UT //435.213.3913)

8. Sabores

Not to be confused with Cafe Sabor, Sabores is an international restaurant serving dishes with a variety of fresh ingredients and flavors. It was hard for me to pick a dish when I first went here but found out quickly that regardless of the genre of food you decide to go with, you’re garunteed a delicious meal. My favorites include the bahn mi sandwich (pictured)- a French baguette, with oven roasted pork, Vietnamese ham, pork pate and pickled veggies. Delicious! And make sure to enjoy a side of their homemade chips. Sabores (255 S Main St #300, Logan, UT // 435.750.5555)

7. Jack’s Wood Fired Oven

Every city deserves a solid pizza joint, which is exactly what Jack’s has to offer. I distinctly remember this pizzeria going in around my junior year at Utah State University. I ordered one pizza for takeout, opened the box in my apartment parking lot for “just a taste”, and before I knew it the entire pizza had disappeared. It’s amazing how big of a difference a good dough recipe and a wood fired oven can make. I love the simple margherita (“The Standard”) at Jack’s but there are several other fantastic menu choices for those who prefer more toppings. Make this pizzeria a priority- it’s definitely one of the best places to eat in Logan, Utah. Jack’s Wood Fired Oven (256 N Main St, Logan, UT  // 435.754.7523)

6. Crumb Brothers

Even if you haven’t spent much time in Cache Valley, most SLC locals have heard of the fabulous Crumb Brothers Artisan Bread. Whether you’re buying a baked good or pastry, or dining in their quaint cafe just off the main drag, everything that comes out of Crumb Brothers kitchen is delectably fresh. They serve breakfast, brunch, and lunch. If you’re in the mood for a sandwich I highly recommend this Club Crumb Panini with Ham, turkey, smoked cheddar, bacon, lettuce, dijon mustard, house aioli on sourdough.

5. Maymoes

One of my new favorite spots in Logan and definitely a lesser known foodie find is Maymoes. Situated behind a gas station and located on the north end of town, this family-owned business has a fantastic menu filled with classic southern cajun dishes including blackened chicken pasta, jambalaya, and poboys. My favorite menu item is the fried shrimp poboy and I’m hoping to try the shrimp grilled cheese next time I’m in Logan! Maymoes (2495 N Main St, North Logan, UT // 435.512.7407)

4. Le Nonne

If you’re celebrating a special occasion in Logan or simply want a delicious, home-cooked Italian meal I recommend dinner at Le Nonne. Their northern Italian menu includes appetizers, soup, salad, and a wide variety of homemade pastas. Their number one most ordered dish is the Ravioli Di Granchio- homemade raviolis stuffed with Alaskan king crab and ricotta cheese, sautéed in a light cream sauce with chili peppers and topped with fresh diced tomatoes. Delicious and definitely one of the best places to eat in Logan, Utah! Le Nonne (129 North 100 East, Logan, UT // 435.752.9577)

3. Morty’s Cafe

If you want a delicious, juicy burger while dining in Logan, Morty’s is the best place in town. Opening in 2014, Morty’s set out with the goal of creating “Cache Valley’s Best Quick-Serve Hamburger”. The burger patties are delicious, juicy, and adorned with all fresh toppings depending on what suits your fancy. Make sure you enjoy some of their amazing homemade classic or sweet potato fries with your burger, and if you’re especially hungry a raspberry shake! Morty’s Cafe (780 E 700 N, Logan, UT // 435.535.3276)

2. Tandoori Oven

I absolutely love this Indian restaurant, and it’s 100% one of the best places to eat in Logan, Utah. Family owned and operated, it’s quaint, situated inside of a gas station just beneath campus, and serves some of the BEST Indian food I have had in my life. Be sure to try their chicken tikka masala, butter chicken, shrimp coconut kurma, or chicken saag. Tandoori Oven (720 East 1000 North, Logan, UT // 435.750.6836)

1. Herm’s Inn

What did Logan do without Herm’s?? This breakfast and brunch joint is located on “The Island” (ask a local) and often has a wait list from open to close. Once a gas station now turned into diner, Herm’s boasts a menu with traditional breakfast and lunch items including biscuits and gravy, fried chicken and waffles, hot corned beef and swiss sandwiches, and half pound angus ground beef burgers. Without question one of my top places to eat in Logan, Utah. Herm’s Inn (1435 Canyon Road, Logan, UT // 435.792.4321)

Bonus: Best Dessert in Logan

We wouldn’t leave you hanging without a list of our favorite places to find a sweet treat in Cache Valley, and a list of best places to eat in Logan, Utah is certainly incomplete with out them. From the old standbys to new comers, here are our top three picks!

3. Old Grist Mill Bread Company

One of my favorite sweet treats to get in Logan is a homemade scone from the Old Grist Mill, a local favorite! There are two locations in Logan and these delicious sweet treats run out fast! I love the chocolate chip scones (pictured) but my absolute favorite are the fruit filled scones (peach and raspberry mmmm). One bite and you’ll be smitten too.

2. Johnny O’s Spudnuts

Thank you to my dear friend and Logan native Aniko for introducing me to the delicious spudnuts of Johnny O’s! And for those of you who are wondering, spudnut = donut made with potato flour. They are located just as you enter the thick of Logan with so many delicious fresh flavors to choose from including the popular blueberry spuddy!

1. Aggie Ice Cream

Ode to Aggie Ice Cream. When I worked on the A-Team (student orientation) for the University as a sophomore, my favorite thing to do was treat incoming freshman with complimentary Aggie Ice Cream. Although I’m not usually a mint ice cream fan, Aggie Blue Mint (their most popular seller), quickly jumped to the top of my list. Mint flavored ice cream with cookie pieces and white chocolate chunks. Fun fact: Aggie Ice Cream sells scoops of frozen deliciousness that contain the highest butterfat content in all of Utah ice cream. Count me in. Aggie Ice Cream (750 North 1200 East, Logan, UT // 435.797.2109)

  1. Logan also has the best sandwiches ever made at the Great Harvest. They were created by the owner and his wife. The Rachel and the Swede are my two favorite. A new addition just east of them called The Waffle Iron also does not disappoint.

    1. I haven’t had the chance to try those yet! I know that Great Harvest is good about giving some freedom and independence to each location. One of my favorites is the chicken salad sandwich (with pecans and cranberries mmmm) at their location on 9th and 9th in SLC! I’ll have to try the Waffle Iron next time. Thanks for stopping by 🙂

      1. If you like Mexican you really need to try El Toro Viejo order the confetti platter from the appetizers and mixed fajitas this is enough to feed 3 to 4 people. And get their fried ice cream best I have ever tasted made with real Mexican vanilla

  2. I miss Logan for one main reason- THE FOOD! Seriously I gained so much weight going to school there. Nobody believes me but they really have the best restaurants and widest variety!

  3. Juniper take out (kind of like Maddox) is a must. Especially if you need gluten free. It’s the only place I can eat and not get sick. Plus it tastes the same as the original.

      1. Just saw this post on Pintrest. I am going to be a downer here. Maddox is not really that great. The best thing on the menu is the fresh peach pie and that is seasonal. Most of the food is over cooked and dry such as their famous fried chicken. Even the burgers are dry and not good at all. If you want something good in Brigham don’t go to Maddox.

        1. Hey Amber! Thanks for your feedback- I used to go to Maddox a lot when I commuted to and from Logan but usually just ordered the fresh fruit pies! Speaking of Brigham- where is the good food?? Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  4. Logan is my home town and while the food isn’t too impressive I do love to hit up La Tormenta, Takara, and Morty’s Cafe along with most of your list when I visit. Tha Ham and Cheese salad at Fredrico’s has some strange pull on me as well!

    1. Hi Carson! Thanks so much for your suggestions. I’ll be honest to say that Fredrico’s wasn’t my favorite. Then again, I tried it nearly 8 years ago (#dated). Looks like I’ll have to give it a try again! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

      1. Frederico’s pizza… meh. But, yes, there is definitely something special about the ham and cheese salad! I can’t quite recreate it at home, the texture of the ham, which I can sort of do in a food processor, and the cheese, for which I cannot find a suitable source, and of course their house made ranch dressing. Extra beets too! And the garlic bread. Yum!

    1. Yes you must try Logan’s Heroes say hello to Rodger get the old smokey if you like smoking meat still probably be best sandwich in Cache Valley now that skinkis does not make sandwiches and is closed if you don’t know is in there he will remember your name if you tell him it I am amazed at his memory

  5. You need to try Temptation Cupcake for a delicious treat! I love their sugar cookies. Abs I’m not a huge cake fan but love their cupcakes!

  6. I went to logan a few months ago for a quick trip and was so dissapointed to not find any good food. Then again….I didn’t really do my research. I’m so excited to try these places when I visit again! Great list!

  7. Bull’s Head Grille is also a must! By far an amazing restaurant! Conveniently located on campus (1111 North 800 East) they have a wide variety of food that is better and more affordable than most places in town! I was born and raise here in Cache Valley and they are the number 1 go-to place for my husband and I!

  8. Agree with the list 100%. The only other place that I frequent often is the new management Beehive Grill. I love the Kobe burger with onion jam!

    1. Thank you so much Shane! I actually used to work at the Beehive Grill while I was in school but I haven’t been back since they have had new management- I’ll for sure have to check it out!

      1. I ate there last week and the food was some of the most delicious I have had in a while and I was able to order delicious gluten-free options which is rare and hard to find. This one needs to be revisited for sure! ?

  9. Looks like you haven’t been to Sweetly Divine, because their desserts (made by a real European pastry chef) are the best in Logan. Maybe in Utah.

      1. No…they are still down hill…haha I know they have a big following but our two visits left a lot to be desired so we won’t be going back.

  10. Hello! Fellow foodie here that lived in Logan until a year ago. This list is great! MayMoes is amazing! Their beignets ? I would highly recommend Logan heroes for sandwiches, especially the chicken cordon bleu plus the service is great- cash only though

    1. Hi Anita! Thanks so much for your nice comment and for reading this post. I haven’t tried MayMoes beignets- I will definitely have to try next time! I have been to Logan’s heroes- I agree a good sandwich and really nice owner!

  11. I would add the tiramisu at le nonnes in best dessert! Absolutely delicious. And I’ve had tiramisu in the best places in the world and that one can hold its own.

    Pollo azteca is another great Mexican place located inside a shoppe- can’t remember the name exactly. I think it’s located in center street and 100 S?

    Chispita bakery in 1000 N and Main st corner has great pastries and a great little Mexican restaurant. I used to go there all the time. Very traditional and they have a punch card and you get a free burrito.

  12. We too have found Jack’s to be a delightful place to eat not only for pizza but for really good homemade salads soups and desserts too. The night we were there they had live music playing which was fantastic.

    1. Amazing! I will for sure have to try the salad, soup, and dessert next time! I’m such a pizza lover that usually I eat an entire pie on my own and have room for nothing else! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  13. I looove lunch at Elements. The early bird special menu (order before 11:45) on the patio on the river is my happy place. Dinner is great, too, but lunch is our go-to date when the kids are in school.

  14. Romo’s has been one we are loving! Their food is amazing and the owners are very kind! They wander around and ask how the food was. The lamb is fabulous, and I haven’t tried anything there I haven’t loved!

  15. Great roundup! I can see Logan has upped its game since you were in school! So many places to choose from now. I was there recently and tried Johhny O’s. I needed some treats for a farewell the next day and asked the girl behind the counter which donuts would stay the most fresh tasting, she recommended the cake donuts, because, well, they are like cake, instead of a traditional raised donut. She was right. The donuts tasted as good the next morning as the night before. They cook their donuts throughout the day, so you can get a fresh treat at night, not something that was cooked at 5 am! The donuts are very reasonable, and bonus, when I went in it was about 7? pm and the donuts were half price. I bought three dozen. Yay for a deal and really yummy donuts!

    1. Thank you Mama!!! Logan has definitely “upped its game” (perfect way to put it). Johnny O’s is definitely really yummy! And good to know that the donuts are still delicious even the next day! My favorite was the old fashioned but next time I’m going to grab a few of the cake donuts. Mmmmmm.
