NEWCOMER

Amour Cafe Utah’s high priestess of pastry has a new home Pastry chef Amber Billingsley Angelilli has joined forces with John and Casee Francis, creators of Amour Spreads, in the Amour Cafe, the Liberty Park neighborhood’s new favorite morning spot. Amour is well-known for its intensely flavored small-batch jams and marmalades, made from seasonal, fresh fruit. The Francis’s are earnest about local—check their website to see which flavors are locally sourced. When the fruit is in season, there’s jam; when it disappears from the markets, you have to wait until next year for more raspberryrose or blood orange-rosemary spread. The jam is made behind the the new cafe, where Angellili is also preparing her famous gelato, sweet and savory pastries. Except for salad, yogurt parfait, an occasional quiche or savory tart (we loved the grilled cheese and goat cheese) and steamed eggs (with pesto, prosciutto or salmon) and toast, that sums up the edibles on the menu. But of course, the word “pastries” covers a paradise full of options, whether you want something with your breakfast coffee (drip, cold brew, macchiato, latte, etc.), an afternoon pick-me-up (chai, housemade soda) or an early evening treat (espresso, cappucino.) 1329 S. 500 East, SLC, 801-467-2947
