Caffe Niche

Cafe Niche Patio.JPG

There was a time when the old brick building at the corner of Salt Lake City's 3rd South and 8th East housed an old, dingy laundromat and a vintage clothing store. For years the building oozed potential, and as the tenants vacated the laundromat transitioned to a cute, airy hair salon. We watched in anticipation as brown paper went up over the windows on the other side, with a paisley print sign promising "Caffe Niche: Coming Soon." It was well worth the wait.

Caffe Niche serves up fresh soups, and sandwiches, with a focus on high quality ingredients. The sleek interior, including the polished concrete floors and dark wood tables, provides a clean canvas for the work of local artists, which is prominently displayed on the walls. Caffe Niche also serves up wine for us heathens.

The portions at Caffe Niche are appropriately sized, so you don't have to feel like you consumed a full day's worth of calories in one meal. The menu is interesting yet simple, and the prices are reasonable for the level of quality. Their soups, salad dressings and delicious pastries are all prepared in-house.

The Bologona - Italian Mortadella and fresh goat cheese, drizzled with Aceto Balsamico $6.50

Coconut Cupcake - $2.50

Weekends offer a brunch menu, with such treats as Italian scrambled eggs with pine nut pesto, sourdough bread and ricotta cheese, and baked apple oatmeal. And with brunch menu items coming in at $5.50 or under, Caffe Niche won't break the bank--or your diet.
