Fun breakfast and lunch spot located across the street from Liberty Park. It can get a bit crowded during the daytime so come on the off hours to get quick service. Take out is always fast here. They are open very early in the morning; so, if you need a meal to recover from an all nighter, this is the spot. The daytime crowd is very relaxed, easygoing, and family friendly. I would recommend this as a breakfast and lunch attraction for tourists and families in Salt Lake City.

Quiet Atmosphere close to Liberty Park. Great place to rendezvous with some friends or acquaintances. Also very centrally located to many shops and several transit hubs, including bus 9, 205, and 209. Some of these busses lead to the TRAX transit system, which allows for transit across the valley. My favorite secret menu item is the Ms. Bean mocha: a white chocolate mocha with raspberry flavoring. All of their drinks can be made hot, iced, or frozen. They do not offer cold brew coffee.

In the summertime local hippies gather in the sun on Sunday to beat their bongo drums and express their free spirits brazenly. Biking and Skating are not permitted inside the park and are permitted on the designated recreational trails on the perimeter. Best sunset views are found on the hills.

Arts & Culture
Located in the center of downtown, this is a fun sightseeing spot with beautiful gardens, lights, buildings, and a warm atmosphere. The sacred space evokes a feeling of serenity, tranquility, and peace. If you are looking for peace and quiet, the visitor center offers a room which is painted like the night sky and has a statue of Jesus Christ with open arms. The warmth, love, and solitude of this room is grounding and peaceful. In this room, all other conversations blend out into white noise, allowing one to be alone with their thoughts and feelings. If you are a Member of the LDS church with a Temple Recommend you may enter the Temple here.

This is Utah's Premier Art Museum. There are always new exhibits coming through the doors for people of all ages to enjoy. Avoid coming on weekdays to steer clear of crowding from public school field trips. Make sure have at least 5 hours to fully enjoy the variety of exhibits available to you. This is a great date idea if you come during the hours of solitude, which vary frequently. Most of the art that is here is art of historical value and reference, there is not much modern art here. Do not expect an experience like LA's MOMA; however, do enjoy the refined sophistication of an evening stroll through the gallery.

This museum is unique in that it was designed to engage both the right and left hemispheres of your brain. In honor of Leonardo Da Vanci, one of the most renowned artists and scientists of modern humanity, this museum was established as a homage to the blending of art, science, and technology. Every permanent exhibit in this building is interactive on some level and illustrate interesting relationships between science and art. This museum can be taken in any dose.
