6 Crown Burgers
Designed to evoke a European hunting lodge, complete with chandeliers and a stone fireplace, this popular restaurant isn't your average burger joint. Neither are the menu's attractions.

Along with great burgers, Crown offers hot sandwiches, fries, and onion rings, all supplied in generous portions and all served fast and reliably. (801-467-6633)

4 Bad Ass Coffee Company
This coffee shop with the colorful name specializes in Hawaiian coffees, which grow rich and flavorful on the islands' lush volcanic slopes. The shop itself has a coastal feel with rough woods and rustic accents. Patrons hang out with steaming cups of java, anticipating the buzz that comes from high-quality beans. To sweeten the experience, order a pastry, a muffin, or biscotti. If you require more than that, Bad Ass offers light fare, including soups and salads. (801-265-1182)

This popular eatery is a great place to stop for a tasty breakfast and a hot cup of coffee. Located on the lobby floor of the Judge Building, the cafe has a relaxed ambience, making it ideal for everybody from tourists to suits.

All breads and muffins are homemade, and several blends of gourmet coffee are available. (801-531-0917, 801-518-6721)

(801-485-9365)
