Everyone needs a second living room, and the Rose Establishment is exactly that for Salt Lake City. Situated a few blocks past downtown, it's a little quieter than some of my other favorites (except on Saturdays, when the entire street is buzzing with traffic for the Farmers' Market in nearby Pioneer Park).
No matter my mood, hunger level, time of day, the Rose Establishment is the answer to everything. I'll sit and work with a rose tea latte with house-made cashew milk (a must!) mid-morning, or stop in to pick up lunch. On weekends I snag a great table early in the morning and somehow breakfast rolls into a second cup of coffee and suddenly it's time for lunch.
