Millcreek

Nestled right at the base of the Wasatch Mountains, Millcreek is something of an outdoor-gear mecca. Not only can you shop for gear in this neighborhood, you can climb at a state of the art gym, hike with your dog and fine dine in the canyon.

Frequently dubbed the best breakfast spot in SLC, Roots Café is not to be missed, it also provides the only opportunity to dine inside a yurt within the city proper. If the locally-sourced menu is proving too tantalizing to narrow down the options, consider the breakfast sandwich and a freshly pressed juice. If the line for Roots is lengthy, add your name to the waiting list and pop into the wacky and fun boutique next door, The Old Flamingo.

Just around the corner you’ll find Provisions, which offers a seasonal menu, craft cocktails, and a tempting brunch menu. If you’re looking for a greasy spoon, make moves to Over The Counter, known as OTC by the locals.

For unbeatable weekday specials and a fun, lively atmosphere, visit Sushi Groove, a favorite haunt of local skiers and snowboarders who can’t resist the live DJs spinning tunes and drink specials.

For memorable and romantic dining, make a reservation at Log Haven, a historic mansion tucked deep within the breathtaking scenery of Millcreek Canyon. Arrive a few minutes early to savor the sights and sounds of the nearby waterfall.

Where to Shop

If you’re into being outside, Millcreek is the ideal place in Salt Lake to gather all the gear you need for just about any type of endeavor outdoors. Heading east to west you’ll first hit REI, and then IME, or International Mountain Equipment, a shop dedicated to climbers and mountaineers. A few blocks west lies Salty Peaks; established in 1987, this is Utah’s first and well-loved snowboard specialty shop. For those on a budget, 2nd Track Sports is a fantastic place to find new and gently used gear at unbeatable prices. Further west lies the headquarters and retail shop of Black Diamond Equipment.
