Breakfasts of Champion Travelers

Experienced travelers know that a good breakfast is the key to being able to fully enjoy your vacation adventures, filling up their “tanks” and giving them the energy they need. This is especially true in Park City, as our guests face days filled with outdoor activities including skiing and snow boarding in the winter months and hiking, fishing, and golfing in the summer months. The following list of breakfast spots will give you exactly what you need to ensure you enjoy each adventure to the fullest.

The Eating Establishment, 317 Main Street, Open 8 AM until 5 PM Daily

Offering an elevated selection of breakfast foods, the Eating Establishment has been a local favorite for over 50 years. Also open for lunch and dinner, their menu also features vegetarian specialties, such as their Shakshuka Skillet made with zesty tomato sauce, potatoes, roasted red peppers, feta cheese and kale with toast. Their Hungry Miner skillet, however, is our favorite breakfast, made with two basted eggs, seasoned potatoes, melted cheddar cheese, onions, ham, green peppers, and mushrooms, also served with toast.

The Bridge Café, Upper Deck, 825 Main Street, Open 8 AM to 6 PM Daily

There’s a simple luxury involved with eating breakfast at any time during the day, not just during so called “breakfast hours,” and the Bridge Café is where we go when we want eggs at eight am, noon, or even five pm. Offering simple meals made with fresh and locally sourced ingredients, the Brazilian twist they add to most dishes adds an exotic flair and their Brazuca Omelet is the perfect example.

Atticus Coffee and Teahouse, 738 Main Street, Open 7 AM to 6:30 PM Daily

Book dragons (better than a book worm, we are told) may recognize the name of this next breakfast spot, and no, it is not a coincidence, the entire establishment is literary themed, and Atticus is from the owner’s mother’s favorite book, “To Kill a Mockingbird.” Serving breakfast from open until 2 PM, when the kitchen closes, the food menu isn’t large, but everything on it is destined to become your latest obsession. Sausage burritos coexist peacefully with Buddha Bowls, vegetarian delights that are made with chai tea infused oatmeal with caramelized walnuts and dried mixed berries, and bagels are blended with unusual yet scrumptious toppings, ensuring that your day starts off in the most delicious of ways.

Lunch on the Mountain

When you pay for an all-day ski pass, you don’t want to leave the mountain at midday just to eat a meal, but after all the energy you have burned on the slopes, you also don’t want to skip a meal. Fortunately, the mountain provides, and this next list of Park City restaurants are perched just off the ski trails, allowing diners to ski in, chow down, and ski out again, in close proximity to our Park City ski-in ski-out vacation rentals.

Fresh Tracks Kitchen in Snow Park Lodge in Deer Valley

Family Friendly Sunset Delights

Family vacations can be the most wonderful of experiences, but they aren’t without their stresses.
