Nestled in a quaint and picturesque valley in the Rocky Mountains, Logan boasts an ever-expanding state university, dozens of dairy farms and a burgeoning culinary scene. Local restaurants in this Utah city offer diners a variety of experiences and cuisines, including American classics and more exotic selections. We explore the top 10 restaurants in Logan.
A favourite of both families and local college students, El Sol has been cooking south-of-the-border dishes with no frills and honest goodness for 40 years. El Sol is exactly what good Mexican food should be: simple, slow-cooked, and inexpensive. From the very beginning of the meal, the fresh chips and salsa basket is amazing. Though it’s not the pinnacle of authenticity, American classics like chimichangas, chili verde, and beef enchiladas are prepared with consistent quality and taste.
Tucked away in an unassuming cottage, one block from Main street sits Le Nonne. Considered by many to be the best restaurant in the valley, Le Nonne serves rich Northern Italian fare in a setting that is comfy yet elegant. The chef and owner hails from a small town on the Tuscan coast and crafts authentic dishes in traditional ways. Fresh pastas and gnocchi are paired with house-made sauces, fresh vegetables and Italian cured meats. As an alternative to the quaint interior, an outdoor patio surrounded by trees makes a perfect setting to relax with a glass of wine and steaming plate of Italian goodness.
The setting of Café Sabor is enough to warrant a first visit and the food will have you coming back again and again. The restaurant is housed in a train station built in 1890 that served as one of the valley’s main transportation hubs for decades. Café Sabor opened in 2002, embracing the history of the space and updating it with vibrant Mexican-American food. Huge portions and dishes like the Sonora Dog and the Chino Latino Egg Rolls, will leave any patron satisfied.
A little bit off of the beaten track, seven miles North of downtown Logan, Callaway’s is worth the fifteen minute drive. The restaurant is an American bistro that has been delighting locals for the last fifteen years. The menu is diverse, with selections ranging from pastas and pizzas, to seafood and steaks. Fans especially love the Santa Fe Alfredo: pasta with a creamy, spicy sauce, and Italian sausage. With a large variety of menu selections and an interest in family and community, there is something for everyone at Callaway’s.
You can’t get more home-grown than Herm’s Inn. This restaurant began serving patrons shortly after the turn of the century, but closed its doors in 1948 following the war. Over those initial decades, the restaurant also sold gasoline, cigarettes and cigars and is even rumoured to have peddled whisky during the prohibition days. Herm’s reopened in 2012 in the very same, century-old building The atmosphere is wonderfully nostalgic and the food perfectly classic. This eatery is only open for breakfast and lunch, so make sure to plan a trip here early in the day.
If you struggle to find the restaurant, don’t be dismayed. It is located inside the Chevron, Tandoori Oven serves up spot-on, authentic Indian cuisine from a small space inside a gas station. The restaurant has amassed a cult-like following from the nearby college campus and the community. Enjoy classics like chicken masala or lamb curry, or go for something a little different, such as the mango chicken curry. Either way, do not forget to order the garlic naan, its locally considered to be the best in Logan.
