A Review of What Makes Utah Great

Some of you may wonder — why on earth would anyone go to Utah. Well, except the funeral and the family — but what on EARTH could be so appealing in Utah. Well, today I am going to focus a bit on the retail end.

Roberts — it’s a craft store. And supposidly it is the storefront of Provo Craft. I have gone to Provo craft (the old one on Center street IN PROVO) since I can remember, and it was the first place I ever got my scrapbooking supplies. They have great sales, they have great coupons… AND they have a discount store — which I will be going to within the next few hours. For a gal whos LSS have all closed, this is the mecca, the mothership if you will.

Great Harvest Bread Co. — Hello Bay Area — WHY don’t you make bread like this? I went and got 3 loaves today (one called “Cinnamon burst” — YUM). I swear it weighed 15 pounds and they even offered me a free slice (which, sadly I had to deny because of the stupid calorie counting — I shouldn’t have eaten breakfast before I went). I wish they made bread like this in CA — but they don’t.

I think that’s where I’ll end for today. Does anyone else have something they’d like to add about Utah, somewhere I should check-out? I am sure I’ll be doing a blog on the food-service end of thing. Can’t get enough of my training table or my brick oven.

    Umm yeah…I was going to say BRICK OVEN. Unfortunately, only Provo has it, so I am still out of luck.

    What about Pebbles in my Pocket? You going to stop in?

    I always hit cafe rio in provo…a must for me. LOVE the pork salad.

    If you head towards Thanksgiving Point, then Rod Works is a great home furnishings place…cute decor. No D.I. prices there.

    Oh one more place that I love (of course it is food) The Italian Place on center street in orem. Philly cheese steak sandwich…yum. Have fun!

    Idaho is only 3 hours away, tops! :) Just kidding! We loved 2 Jacks Pizza in Spanish Fork…still crave it all the time!

    Have a great rest of your spring break, even if it’s not the way you originally planned to spend it!

    Tai Pan is always a fun place to stop while in Utah. They even have a new store further North in my neck of the woods. I agree with Emily about Cafe Rio too. There are other places, but they are more in the Ogden area, too far North for a Utah Valley Native like yourself…
