Mid bite of the most delectable and scrumptious lemon cream cheese filled french toast from Eva's Bakery in downtown Salt Lake, an idea popped into my head. I should start showcasing all the best eats here in Utah on my blog, because really, there are a ton. Being a foodie I love learning about new places here in Utah. I don't discriminate when it comes to food, I like a variety, and I like the fine stuff just as much as the greasy and cheap. If it tastes good, that is all that matters to me! I don't know how often I will do them, but every now and then I will be sharing some of my favorite eats here in Utah, and would love to hear your thoughts, opinions, and suggestions as well! If you want to join in on the fun, I started a hash tag when I originally had this idea on instagram #GoodEatsUtah so you can check out my favorites, and share yours as well.
I figured it would be fitting to start with the meal that got this whole idea rolling in the first place. Eva's Bakery is known as a great spot to not only eat, but take an instagram selfie. You see, they have a beautiful, bright blue, and iconic store front. The whole ambiance of the bakery makes you feel like you have taken a step into a restaurant in Paris, and as someone who has been there, it really does feel authentic! If you don't want to take my word, just check out the reviews online! Everyone agrees.
Eva Coombs, the Eva in Eva's Bakery, was renowned for cooking with an abundance of both love and butter. Family and friends took any opportunity to stop by her home for nourishment and pleasure. Her great grandson, Charlie, was always by her side in the kitchen, and Eva's passion for French cooking and respect for ingredients transferred to her young apprentice. Chef /Owner, Charlie Perry, opened Eva, the restaurant, and Eva's Bakery Boulangerie in her honor.
When I say it reminded me of Paris, I wasn't exaggerating. It isn't just the ambiance, but even the food. Their hot chocolate reminds me of what I had at the famous Angelina Paris! I do want to warn those who try it, if you haven't had a thick hot chocolate like this before you might not like it. It doesn't taste super sweet like your Swiss Miss packets. Anyways, I really like it, but always throw that out there for newbies. Obviously you heard me gushing about their Stuffed French toast, and I have heard so many great things about their Mac N Cheese. I have yet to eat there for lunch, I usually hit it up for breakfast, but they have a full supply of bakery items, breakfast and lunch. It will not disappoint, and all the Yelp reviews back me up on that! If you ever find yourself in Salt Lake, it is a real treat and you have to try it out :)
