Steph and I can get pretty busy sometimes but one thing we always try to make time for is BREAKFAST. Okay, I’ll be honest, sometimes it’s brunch (it’s hard to wake up early on a Saturday). We had been hearing a lot about this place in Salt Lake called Avenues Proper, right next to LDS Hospital, so we thought we’d check it out.
The weather was so gorgeous on Saturday! We had to take advantage of a cool, breezy day instead of the intense heat we’ve been having.
Steph and I ordered pretty much the same thing but it was delicious!!
This is the Proper Breakfast: 2 eggs any style, baked beans, bacon & house-smoked ham, breakfast potatoes and toast. The top is Steph’s, she got her egg over medium. The bottom is mine with scrambled eggs. Neither of us got the beans because we weren’t feeling it but it was sooooo good! The bacon had a sweet, brown sugar-like glaze over it that made it taste amazing.
My sister came with us and she ordered the Proper French Toast: the bread is house challah and it had pickled pears, orange zest, creme fraiche, and thyme-infused maple syrup. It was delicious! When I go back, I’m definitely getting this.
They’re part of the Proper group in Salt Lake: Proper Brewing Company & Proper Burger. If you’re ever in the area, stop by one of these places and try it out! Check out their menu here.
Right next door to Avenues Proper is Hatch Family Chocolates. If you’re not familiar with this place, it happened to be featured on TLC’s Little Chocolatiers in 2009. They make their own chocolates and their own ice cream so we had to stop by after brunch and get a sweet treat.
My sister got mint chip (left), I got cookies & cream (middle), and Steph got strawberry! Their ice cream is so creamy and just the right amount of sweet. You definitely need to try it out!
We had a blast! What are your favorite breakfast/brunch places?
