There are no reservations required — diners can just pop in whenever it suits, and there’s never much of a wait.

Recently awarded “Salt Lake’s Best Breakfast/Brunch” by Salt Lake magazine, Lappe’s focus is on offering healthier alternatives without compromising flavor. With brunch in mind – “Our bartender Chris Bradshaw is having a blast with his new ice freezer, hand-crafting cubes for his new line up of brunch-focused cocktails. We have such a great new selection…from Bellinis to Bloody Marys to more fun ones like Harvey Wallbangers,” said Lappé. “You can always choose one from our classic line up like Cuba Libre, Fernet & Coke or a summery Gin Ricky, too. They all pair very well with our updated brunch menu.”
