Lazy Day Café Salt Lake City Restaurant Review
Tucked in the corner of East Ivy Place, the Lazy Day Café is one of the hidden gems of Millcreek. Entering in their front door, I was greeted with the appetizing scent of home cooked breakfast. That, blended with their eclectic mix of tables, gave the feel of a nostalgic breakfast at home and was harmonious with the idea of a “lazy day.”
My first visit, on a Saturday, was anything but lazy for the café’s staff. It was packed with the people coming to take advantage of the special weekend brunch menu. Saturdays and Sundays are their busiest days—expect to wait for a table (but it is worth it!); or, you can grab a spot at the counter. I visited again the next Thursday (it’s their syrup—it’s addictive) and the café was much more laid back and had plenty of open tables. Despite being busy on Saturday, the servers were friendly and the food came in a timely manner.
(Baked French Toast)
Every dish here is cooked in-house and their food is delicious. I have literally dreamt about their Baked French Toast—only offered on the weekend brunch menu—and it is definitely my favorite dish. A scrumptious breakfast that is really more of a bread pudding (Dessert for breakfast? I’m completely ok with that!), the Baked French Toast is layered with cream cheese and blueberries and practically melts in your mouth.
One of their most popular breakfast dishes is their lemon pancakes. They are light, fluffy, and delicious. Their pancakes—as well as the Baked French Toast—come with their homemade syrup.
Their syrup—oh my goodness, their syrup—is delightful. A house-made buttermilk based syrup that has a rich, caramel and divine flavor. I am not usually a syrup fan, but I am not above using my fingers to clean this leftover syrup off my plate.
(Quiche and Omelet of the Day)
Another option is their daily quiches and omelets that are quite scrumptious and made with fresh, in-season vegetables. They also offer a lunch menu—check out their full menu here
Lazy Day Café is located in Salt Lake City at 2020 E. 3300 South, Millcreek, in the back corner of the Ivy Place Shopping Center.
