What we love about SLC

farm fresh.

From the post yoga salad to the five star dining, nearly every meal you'll enjoy is locally sourced and lovingly prepared. 

hiking.

Seriously, what other city has such scenic trail access so close to downtown?  Answer, nobody. 

cocktails.

Mixologists reign supreme at nearly every watering hole and speakeasy. Yes, SF still has those.

 

Breakfast

Vertical Diner

This is about as indie as the SLC vegan scene gets. Sort of Brooklyn-like, sort of Silverlake like, you'll see what we mean. They have smoothies made with raw cashew mylk for a quick raw breakfast, and La Mesa for when you're heading out for a day running trails.
2280 West Temple, South SLC

Cafe Supernatural

Remember when we mentioned the adorable cafe with the yoga studio roommate? This is the place! It's one of Vertical Diner's sister restaurants, and they serve a number of raw breakfast goodies. Perfect after working it out on your mat!
600 S 700 E, Central City

Lunch

Mazza

You know who cooks here? Omar from Omar's Rawtopia's mom. So, girl knows a thing or two about making some super flavorful vegan cuisine. The restaurant does serve meat (for our carnivorous friends!) but their plant-based options are extensive and crazy good.
912 E 9th St S, 9th and 9th

Omar’s Rawvolution

Omar's Rawvolution is what happens when a raw food chefs takes traditional Lebanese food and uncooks it. There are many memorable traditional raw items on the menu, but trust us, try the raw Labneh. And the cacao mylkshake.
2148 Highland Drive, Sugar House

Dinner

Forage

Book ahead - this gem of a restaurant has just eight tables. Their veg menu does contain dairy but because all of their dairy is organic and locally sourced from sustainable farms, we say splurge. The 18-course tasting menu can be paired with wine or non-alcoholic juices. This meal is perfection and would cost four times as much on either coast.
370 E 900 S, Central City

Sage’s Cafe

You know when you crave a quiet, charming vegan meal in a homey little restaurant with an adorable patio? This is it. There should be a Sage's in every city. Oh, and you can't beat the $10 corkage.
473 E 300 S, Central City

Workout

Urban Arts Dance and Fitness

They offer a little of everything here - yoga, Pilates, hula, Zumba and a number of dance-based cardio workouts.
25 E Kensington Ave, Downtown

Trail Running, Little Cottonwood Canyon

There are a bazillion different trails around the Little Cottonwood area. Short ones, long ones, steep ones. Each one is more scenic than the next. It's a climb up the hill, so leave plenty of time to get there and explore.
9600 Little Cottonwood Canyon Rd, Sandy

Yoga

Prana

Prana is the yoga counterpart to Cafe Supernatural. Classes are challenging but thoughtful. Probably a five or six on the sweatiness scale, Prana has some talented teachers and a bright, airy space that will make you feel right at home.
602 E 500 S, Central City

Centered City Yoga

Probably the hippest yoga studio in town, these classes are busy, sweaty and upstairs in a very yogic downtown loft. When you're done, head down the street to Mazza for some delicious vegan Lebanese.
918 E 900 S, 9th and 9th

Zest

New sexy little (vegan) dinner spot with a killer seasonal, organic, vegan friendly bar menu. Kombucha cocktails and organic double chocolate vodka? Love.
275 S 200 W, Downtown

Bar-X

We like our bars windowless and dark with naked lady pictures in the bathroom and classic cocktails with fresh herbs and citrus. There's a cute little patio out front, but we think the bar's where it's at.
155 E 200 S, Central City

Caffe d’Bolla

After searching high and low, we found an actually super lovely little juice bar semi-hidden in the new Assembly Hall marketplace. Get your juice fix here, but Seattle's claim to fame in a cup is really coffee. Which, of course, Home Remedy serves, too. Along with a couple of vegan treats on a mostly non-veg pastry menu.
249 E 400S, Central City
