Our Local Expert Says:
Located up beautiful Emigration Canyon, Ruth's offers scrumptious breakfasts in a gorgeous setting.
In a city with a strong, conservative tradition, Ruth was an early rebel. Originally serving burgers downtown during the 1930s, Ruth was known to help protect girls "of ill repute" and had no qualms about serving beers to miners and other "gentiles". Almost literally driven from town, she set up her new diner a few miles up Emigration Canyon in an old boxcar.
Though Ruth has since passed, her restaurant lives on today as one of Salt Lake City's favorite breakfast joints. Serving high-end, high-quantity diner food, this restaurant starts every breakfast with a serving of "mile high biscuits" that are to die for. Come a bit later for lunch and take a beer outdoors! Located right on a popular road biking route, many enjoy a hearty meal outside in the summer months.

Breakfast is served all day at the Blue Plate -one of Salt Lake's most popular diner-style restaurants. Great food, old-school diner ambiance, friendly staff, and tons of vegetarian and vegan options have customers coming back again and again. Amazing omelets, a variety of benedicts (try the vegetarian option!), breakfast burritos, biscuits and gravy, corn cakes, French toast, and even tofu scramblers grace the breakfast menu. Breakfast items are served in huge portions, are always tasty, and not overly greasy like other diners. For dinner, the Blue Plate's chicken fried steak and meatloaf are favorites. Blue Plate is quite popular (especially among the young, "cool" guys) so there is usually a bit of a wait for breakfast seating on weekends - beat the crowds and get there early.
