Cottonwood Heights Cafe

It was the train that caught my eye.  Constantly on the lookout for new places to eat, Cottonwood Heights Cafe certainly has the local diner look as you drive in.  There is an average sized parking lot in the back, and we got the last spot, so that was definitely a good sign as I pulled in for my first visit a month or so ago.

Dining Room

Dining Room

I’m not sure if this was the original business in this building or if it was converted, but the dining room has a faux library on one end, and an open facing kitchen in the middle.  There are lots of natural light that comes into the space, so it was a relaxing and comfortable environment to grab a non-rushed table service breakfast or lunch.


Fry Sauce

I’m starting out this little review with a picture of the fry sauce.  I like how they give you a full squirt bottle and not some little soufflé cup.  Cottonwood Heights Cafe earns points here.  A solid Utah diner has to have good fry sauce and plenty of it.  The sauce itself even tasted great.  It goes above and beyond the standard mayo and ketchup fare, I detected some crushed tomatoes throughout.  It ended up going well on burger and fries alike.


French Dip

We were recommended the French Dip from the sandwich menu, so my co-worker went with it.  Came with a nice bowl of au jus and a side of steak fries.  He said it was in his top 5 for best french dips he has had, and he claims to be a french dip expert.  Take that for what its worth.  Our waiter told us that they slice the beef daily in-house.


Cottonwood Heights Burger

I went with the house burger which came with a nice helping of bacon and fried egg on top along with the standard tomato, lettuce, and onion fare.  It even had a Big Mac-esque sauce on the bottom.  I opted out of the fries and went with their potato cousins the breakfast potatoes.  It was a solid burger.  Not going to make any top 10 lists in Utah but a solid offering nevertheless.  I personally prefer Carl’s Cafe burgers just a block or two away, but Carl’s does not take credit cards and these guys do.

Final thoughts?  Good service, good food.  I didn’t have a chance to sample the breakfast menu, but it was expansive with all the traditional offering along with a few house specialties.  Prices were on point and food was fresh and tasty.  Would repeat again.
