The Park Cafe
If I were you I would definitely start my day with a delicious breakfast from The Park Cafe, one of Salt Lake’s best breakfast places. Their breakfast menu is to die for! I personally recommend their French Toast.
The Park Cafe has become a must go to place and important part of Liberty Park since 1984. They are open daily from 7:00am – 3:00pm. You can give them a call at any time during business hours at (801) 487-1670.
After enjoying a delicious breakfast, how about visiting the Tracy Aviary and seeing some of the most beautiful and exotic birds in the world. The Aviary is located inside of Liberty Park, close to the corner of 500 E and 1300 S, right across the street from The Park Cafe. You can’t miss it!
