Brunch is a weekend staple here in Utah. Is there anything better than sleeping in on Sunday, then eating your heart out at brunch? You should always complete your brunch with a nice walk in the sun, and then by a nap. Just sayin'.

Since Mother's Day is this weekend, you have to get out and brunch! Who wants to cook a meal when you're focusing on your amazing Mom? 

If you're not celebrating Mother's Day, check out our other options, we've got a perfect brunch spot for everyone here!

You know what they say, brunch is breakfast without an alarm clock!

As summer approaches, the team here at Salt Lake Lifestyle cannot stop dreaming of enjoying our eggs sunny-side up in the sunshine. The best part of brunch culture (as we like to call it), is the slow pace. We aren’t eager to eat as quickly, we’re satisfied sipping our fresh coffee and catching up with your family or friends. It’s the perfect time to unwind, relax, and take a break from everyday life. Plus it’s the one day a week you can seem to rally everybody together to catch up.
