Breakfast pizza at Slackwater Pub & Pizzeria

Slackwater Pub and Pizzeria, 10290 S. State, Sandy, 801-930-5147; 1895 Washington Blvd., Ogden, 801-3990637;

Zest’s vegan chickpea omelet with portobello mushrooms, jalapeno, arugula and cashew cheese


Ogden favorite Slackwater Pub & Pizzeria opened their second location in Sandy late in 2019. Almost immediately, Salt Lake diners began lining up for their inventive pies made in the massive pizza oven that can cook 48 pizzas at a time and a sip of nearly 250 craft beers on tap and bottle. Built to seat 225 people in the winter and 320 when both patios are open, this south valley hot spot is a culinary destination on Sundays, where brunch is served from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Enjoy the popular breakfast pizza ($10) loaded with potatoes, sausage, bacon and eggs on top of a creamy hollandaise base and Slackwater’s three-cheese blend. Pair it with a rather creative sake bloody mary for a true Sunday Funday. Another tasty addition to the Sandy brunch menu is the chile verde eggs Benedict (one of three eggs Benny options) that you can wash down with a glass or carafe of Stinger Hard Cider mimosas.

Zest Kitchen & Bar has long made a name for itself in downtown Salt Lake serving an organic, 100% plant-based menu in a bright, clean space that feels fresh and welcoming to diners of every persuasion. Guests order the vegan chickpea omelet ($12) enough to make it one of the restaurant’s most popular items—thanks to the a flavorful (and colorful) mix of seasonal vegetables that come together for a healthy, earthy entrée paired with Zest’s famous root veggie hash. Owner Casey Staker and his team take their plantbased philosophy all the way to their boozy brunch drink menu, featuring a vegan bloody mary as well as fresh-juiced mimosa blends like beet apple ginger, green juice and, of course, fresh squeezed orange and grapefruit. Enjoy all these items seven days a week! (Heather L. King) Zest Kitchen & Bar, 275 S. 200 West, SLC, 801-433-0589,
