It’s the weekend and you need protein and a mimosa stat. Thankfully, if you’re looking for brunch in Salt Lake City, you’re in luck. We have a bajillion (its a word, trust us) options across the valley. Salt Lakers love their brunch! Here are some of our favorites:Avenues Proper – Make sure to do brunch the Proper way! This Avenues neighborhood hotspot is a local’s favorite for brunch serving the most important meal of the weekend on both Saturday and Sunday.
Start with a $3 (yes three dollars) mimosa or bloody Mary then kick back and review Avenues’ extensive brunch menu – a selection of classic dishes, each with Avenues’ own unique spin.
A couple of our favorites? Try the Chicken & Waffles, featuring house made chicken sausage and 2 eggs sunny-side-up. Plated atop golden brown waffles and drizzled in fantastic, thyme-infused grade A maple syrup.
Or perhaps the Southwestern Benedict is more your style? 2 poached eggs come with crispy cornbread, kale-bell pepper-red onion hash, pickled jalapeños and pico de gallo hollandaise.
And if you find that brunch runs into a lazy, luxurious afternoon, don’t forget the restaurant is home to an excellent micro-brewery, replete with some of SLC’s best ales, beers and lagers.
