The Very Best Brunch in Utah County
Trying to find the best brunch in Utah county? Look no further. Get out your calendar and start scheduling some A.M. outings because our list of the top 10 spots for brunch in Utah county is ready to be savored!
10. Hobble Creek Coffee
When mornings drag slowly (and let’s be honest, that happens more often than desired), nothing gets the day moving quite like a yummy hot drink and a great plate of food. Hobble Creek Coffee specializes in roasting coffee, but they are also serving some of the best brunch in Utah County to match their high-end brews. The small coffee shop serves a variety of small bites including bagel sandwiches and house-made muffins, but the smothered breakfast burrito is the real reason you’re here. The massive burrito, totally unique to this little Springville shop, is stuffed with chorizo, hashbrowns, egg, and green chili and very non-traditionally smothered with a peppery, creamy sausage gravy. It comes to your table made-to-order and piping hot, which makes for a pretty cozy scene with billows of steam rising from your plate and a mug of something warm and delicious nearby.
9. Station 22
There is no doubt that chicken and waffles is the answer to a mid-morning comfort food craving. There is also no doubt that Station 22, a Provo Center Street staple serving great brunch in Utah County, makes chicken and waffles better than any other local joint. Their buttermilk waffles are fluffy, tangy, and the perfect complement to their fried chicken which is tender and crisp. This is not your standard plate of chicken and waffles, though. Station 22 adds a personal touch to the plate with drool-worthy walnut butter and fresh sage. Yeah, it’s just as good as it sounds. The Stuffed French Toast is also a winner here, so be prepared to leave really, really full.
8. Marley’s Gourmet Sliders
Pancakes are always a good idea. Especially when someone else is flipping them for you and especially when they’re being flipped at Marley’s Gourmet Sliders — the perfect place for a quick pancake brunch in Utah County. This small, fast-casual restaurant located inside a Harley-Davidson shop makes their cakes to order every morning. Their bottomless pancakes are light and fluffy, just like a great pancake should be, but what really sets these flapjacks apart is their distinct vanilla flavor and Marley’s thick, buttery syrup. The pancakes are so enormous that no one is sure if “bottomless” means limitless ordering or if it’s just hard to find the bottom of your stack. These yummy pancakes are so enjoyable, though, that even if you’re totally stuffed, there’s somehow always room for more. Make it a sit-down brunch inside to enjoy the restaurant’s neon signs, eclectic decorations, and classic 80’s rock, or take a quick swing through the drive-thru to get your flapjack fix on-the-go.
Brunch at Oteo’s is an experience. There’s no menu — just a vow of trust between visitor and chef that whatever comes out of the kitchen is going to be spectacular — and it always is! This unique way of doing brunch in Utah county is a fun and delicious twist on the normal out-for-breakfast routine. Oteo’s four-course brunch starts with a plate of fresh grapefruit and oranges dusted with a sweet chili salt and is followed by a refreshing plate of oatmeal, yogurt, and fruit. Next up, the real star of this meal: the main course. The restaurant toggles between huevos rancheros, breakfast burritos, breakfast molotes (fried corn cakes) and more for the main, so there isn’t much room to be disappointed no matter what’s served. We do especially love the molotes, though. They are light, crispy, and topped with all kinds of goodies — a poached egg, chili oil, crema, etc. — atop a little bed of beautifully cooked black beans and accompanied by caramelized plantains and bacon. As with anything good in life, the meal is finished off with dessert, and it’s a guarantee that when it’s time to leave, your belly will be the “just-right” kind of full and your taste buds will be singing.
If there were ever any doubts that Cubby’s serves some of the best brunch in Utah County, the small riot that ensued after the restaurant announced they would no longer serve Saturday brunch is proof enough. Cubby’s very graciously complied with their loyal following’s demands by continuing to offer breakfast at select locations across the valley, and lines on Saturday morning are as healthy as ever. There’s a lot to love about the Cubby’s brunch menu, but two favorites include the Brioche French Toast and Breakfast Burrito (made protein style with tri-tip steak, because Cubby’s and tri-tip are a match made in heaven). The french toast is custardy, well-salted, and sweet from the fresh berries and airy vanilla syrup. The eggs in the burrito are creamy, and the smoky flavor from the bacon and chipotle cream is irresistible. Just be warned that after going once, it’ll be hard not to go back every week.
5. Hruska’s Kolaches
Breakfast at Hruska’s Kolaches happens every day from 6:30 a.m. to sell-out, which often means they aren’t open for very long. Kolaches are a “Tex-Czech” fusion food popular in eastern Texas and were introduced to the Utah County food scene by the native Texan Hruska family when they moved here from the area. Ordering anything from Hruska’s is a safe bet, but to start your day off strong get the Texan Style and Sausage, Egg, and Cheese kolaches, then add on one of their famous Raspberry kolaches to round it out. Hruska’s kolache dough is soft, dense, and buttery — one of the most important components of a great kolache — and the fillings are as thoughtful as they are flavorful. One bite is all it takes to prove that these little breakfast buns qualify as some of the very best brunch in Utah County.
4. TRUreligion Pancake & Steakhouse
TRUreligion is consistently delicious, which is one of the most important attributes of a breakfast spot if it’s going to qualify as some of the best brunch in Utah County. Though it’s relatively new to the food scene here, Trureligion is almost always packed with breakfast lovers. Don’t go without a freshly squeezed orange juice while perusing the menu — it’s a big menu with lots of options, so it might take some time to choose. Feeling lost? Go for the Fresh Fruit Crepes if looking for something sweet (the mascarpone cream filling is to die for), and the Huevos Rancheros or Baja Benedict for something savory. Either way, grab a side of bacon and a few buttery, fluffy biscuits to share. You’ll soon be in brunch heaven.
Communal has a notoriously delicious morning menu, and it has been a popular spot for brunch in Utah County for years. Don’t overlook the starter menu upon sitting down — the bruléed grapefruit and fried scones with honey butter are the perfect way to warm up to entree favorites like the deep-fried french toast (you heard that right) and eggs benedict. All of it, from the honey butter to the fruit compotes and pastries, is mouthwatering. There really isn’t a bad option here, but as a first-timer it’s important that Communal’s home fries hit the table one way or another. We recommend visiting Communal with a group and ordering a variety of dishes to share so you can scope out your favorites for next time!
2. Block Restaurant
Basically everything served at Block Restaurant is top-notch delicious, but falling in love with this restaurant starts with their incredible brunch — unarguably one of the best menus for brunch in Utah County. The chefs at this farm-to-table restaurant work daily to perfect their technique, and it shows on every plate. Everything here — from the veggies to the ham — is super fresh. Things here are so fresh, in fact, that diners can watch chefs squeezing orange juice, grinding sausage, and making biscuits every Saturday and Sunday morning. The atmosphere is cozy, and there is something for everyone on the menu. While no option is a bad option at Block, the Block Breakfast and Eggs Benedict are worth ordering again and again on inevitable return trips to the restaurant, because nothing quite beats a delectable sampler of everything good Block has to offer or that perfectly emulsified, rich hollandaise.
1. The Foundry Grill
Sweet (brunch) dreams are made of this. The Foundry Grill at Sundance Mountain Ski Resort lies in one of the prettiest corners of the Wasatch Mountain Range and opens early in the morning on Saturday and Sunday for breakfast and early brunch. The food served at The Foundry is sort of rustic-chic, with really sophisticated but down-home flavors and a cozy, cabin-like atmosphere to match. The whole menu is excellent, but the Roasted Carrot Toast is an absolute must. Sourdough toast is slathered with creamy carrot harissa butter, drizzled in a tangy buttermilk sauce, sprinkled with feta cheese, and topped with two perfectly poached eggs and whole roasted carrots. Honestly, forget avocado toast! Run, don’t walk, to taste the very best brunch in Utah County at The Foundry Grill.
