Ruth’s Diner is not your grandma’s breakfast spot. OK, maybe it actually is, since it’s been open since 1930, but the vibe is decidedly non-octogenarian. Built inside a renovated trolley car and located 20 minutes outside the city, the small indoor space means long waits, but they also have some of the best views of Emigration Canyon. Every meal starts just how Ruth (the original owner who has since passed away) used to make it: with a biscuit served with housemade fruit preserves. Pair the biscuits with pulled pork benedicts or chicken fried steak, three-egg omelets, or banana walnut french toast.
