Station 22 Cafe in Provo, Utah

Update: Station 22 is now a sit-down restaurant and has gone through some changes. I need to post an update soon.


I know, I know--so many Provo posts. 

But Provo sorta has a plethora of good places to eat right now. Surprised? Maybe we shouldn't be.

For now, behold:

...Station 22 Cafe. I have just discovered a new favorite place.

My mother & I immediately eyed down the "Caprese Sandwich" sign out front for their daily special.

And just like that my mom was done ordering before we even entered.

Caprese--pronounced "kah-PREH-seh"--consists of fresh tomatoes, fresh basil, fresh mozzarella cheese, drizzled with olive oil & the occasional balsamic vinaigrette. On a sandwich? Paired with a broccoli bacon cheddar soup? Don't mind if I do.

Station 22 Cafe is located in Historic Downtown Provo, so it's only fitting they stuck with the theme & left exposed brick for the walls & neat brick for the flooring. I love that feel of an old rustic building.

Oh I'll be back to eventually try every single Daily Special, which I assume probably changes according to what's seasonally fresh.

If you're feeling artistic on your way to the salad bar, stop by the giant chalkboard wall freshly stocked with a basket full of chalk.

Yes fellow parents, take your family! They have a kid's menu!

Memphis Chicken Sandwich

Hand-cut, house breaded, fried chicken "served Memphis-style with a spicy butter glaze topped with a fresh slaw" placed lovingly on a ciabatta roll. Not a fan of chicken sandwiches? Yeah, neither was I. Think again...  Crispy & crunchy on the outside, moist on the inside, with a slaw & a sweet spicy glaze; very satisfying & delicious in one bite! My claim above about trying every one of their daily specials? I changed my mind.

I'm serious. It's a new favorite & added to my list of "constant cravings".

I love the local art on the walls. This display: - A photo project by Trevor Christensen.

Great sandwiches.
Great soup.
Great service.
Great atmosphere.

    And yes, my hair is wavy in that pic. That's my "I don't give a *bleep* look!" ;)

  3. Oh thank you for posting the address, in my head I was thinkin "is this on center?!" Why have I NEVER seen this place? But the first thing I will get is this sandwich. Provo does have a lot of places to eat :)

    I live in P-twon too, and randomly found your blog through Story of My Life. Wasn't her post the best today? Wish I had her life hahaha!

    So excited to get to know you and your blog :)

  4. Thanks for the good words! We appreciate your support of our place! Love your blog!

  5. Interesting to see the Trevor Christensen exhibit from a few years back. He's now getting worldwide press & trending on the internet for his 'nude photographer' portrait series. (Subjects aren't undressed, but the photographer is, behind the camera...)
