Many, many restaurants serve dessert in Salt Lake City, and nearly every restaurant serves coffee. But at most restaurants, the coffee and the sweets come after a meal - and are not the primary focus of the eatery. 10Best has scoured the streets of Salt Lake City and uncovered a sweet group of eateries focusing primarily on scrumptious treats. And it turns out that, if you visit many of these restaurants, you’ll take a miniature vacation to Europe.
Perhaps no European country is more renowned for its desserts - specifically pastries - than France.

Whether you’re looking for eclairs, café au lait… or perhaps sandwiches and fresh bread, you’ll find a cornucopia simply brimming with deliciousness and an emphasis on local and sustainable ingredients.
