Eva’s Bakery in Salt Lake City, Utah is a must-stop breakfast or brunch spot! Order a plate of the Stuffed French Toast with lemon cream cheese filling and blueberry compote or any of their flaky croissants- you won’t regret it!
On a recent trip to Salt Lake City, Utah I had two objectives: attend the inaugural Tastemaker Conference and eat.all.the.things. I am happy to report that I successfully accomplished both.
The food blogger conference was more than I could have hoped for and it gave me the perfect excuse to try a few delicious foodie destinations in SLC.
All in the name of research right?
Eva’s Bakery SLC
Eva’s Bakery was one of the first restaurants to make it’s way on my must-eat list, especially after I realized that many of the restaurants and businesses (even City Creek Mall) are closed on Sunday. I was super excited to see that Eva’s Bakery offers Sunday Brunch hours from 9am – 3pm.
And while the conference may have been amazing, the morning coffee they provided… left a little to be desired. I ordered a gigantic cup of the Café au lait from Eva’s Bakery and it was creamy and smooth and just the right balance of flavors. (Café au lait = coffee with hot milk added.)
My friend Susie from Mom’s Dinner and I decided to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful Salt Lake City weather. Luckily the smoke and haze from the nearby fires had shifted and we were able to enjoy the quaint little patio area. Nothing like being cooped up in a classroom for two days to make you appreciate the sunshine.
The vibe inside Eva’s Bakery was rustic, farmhouse chic, with classic French charm. There were shelves with glass jars filled with various types of coffee beans and loose teas, giant cases filled with flaky pastries and fresh breads, and a cute chalkboard drink menu behind the counter.
I knew after looking at their menu online that I was going to sample one of their warm ham and gruyere croissants, but then they set down a tray of eclairs right in front of me and I had to order one of them as well.
The shining star of the entire meal was definitely Eva’s Bakery Stuffed French Toast with lemon cream cheese filling and blueberry compote. Oh. My. Goodness.
Homemade Pancakes might be my favorite breakfast/ brunch recipe to make at home but I almost always order French Toast at restaurants when given the choice. (Make sure you try this Vanilla Bean Orange Infused French Toast I recreated after a trip to Chicago.)

The Stuffed French Toast at Eva’s Bakery was thick and cooked to perfection. The cream cheese was just the right balance of tang and sweet. It wasn’t overpowered with lemon; it was subtle and sweet and so dang good.
