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. Los Primos
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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 without them. From the old standbys to newcomers, 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.
