Favorite Friday - Nauvoo Cafe Re-Opening

I'm starting a new feature here on my blog to kind of spotlight my very favorite things. I want to try it out on Fridays, but I might have to move it around a little bit. A lot of my favorites I'm planning to talk about will be local to me in the northern Utah area, but some of them may be accessible to every one through the wonders of the Internet.


The first place I'm going to talk about is the Nauvoo Cafe. It's a cute little sandwich restaurant located in the main floor of the Joseph Smith Memorial Building in downtown Salt Lake City. It's located in what used to be the Nauvoo Room (which coincidentally was where my husband and I had our wedding breakfast). This is one of our family's very favorite places to go. I'd say it's the one our kids especially request the most. In fact, last month our middle daughter requested it for her birthday. When we arrived, we found out that they had closed for remodeling less than 24 hours earlier. Let me just tell you, she was bummed! 

But...last Friday was their grand re-opening and I was lucky enough to get to go. I have to


say that I loved what they did with the space. I loved the way that moving the counter space not only made the line better and easier to get through, but it really opened up the whole space and made one of the windows facing South Temple accessible. I love looking out the windows and watching the busy traffic go by or the people walking on the sidewalk. The way they've redone things really just make sense. And they even added a few more tables so more people can try their yummy food!



One of my very favorite things they did is something they didn't change...their menu offerings. I love all of the sandwiches that I've tried here. My favorite is probably the Turkey Club. Their sandwiches are a bit unique because they're all hot and they are not using deli lunch meat on any of their sandwiches. They carve the turkey, ham, roast beef, etc when you order your sandwich. So yummy! They also still have their pot pies. I always have a really hard time deciding whether I'm going to get a sandwich or a pot pie when I go this time my husband and I split a Turkey Club and tried splitting a pot pie. I was amazed that he was able to figure out how to do it without making a complete mess. 

They also have children's menu items, making it great for the whole family! Our kids have tried the grilled cheese and the quesadilla. They do have other offerings for the kids, or you could get them a sandwich to share with someone. Our little guy likes the Turkey Club just as much as the grilled cheese.



And make sure you try the treats! This time we had a carrot cake and a raspberry muffin top (I think these are my favorite!). But we've also tried the cinnamon rolls, the bread pudding and the cheesecake. And they are ALL AMAZING! 

I haven't tried their breakfast yet but it's on my list. I might get to in a few weeks. I for sure want to try their Creme Brulee French Toast.  

Quite honestly, we've eaten here many times and never had one problem with the food and the staff is just amazing! They are always kind and always helpful. I LOVE this place. Go try it!

Deseret Bookshelf Plus Review

I'm super excited to be able to tell you about Deseret Bookshelf's newest feature, Plus. I actually first heard about plus coming six months ago at Deseret Book's ladies night. I thought it sounded pretty great and now that I've tried it, I think it's even better than it sounded. It's basically a subscription that you add on top of the Deseret Bookshelf App. If you have Deseret Book's Platinum membership, you pay only $6.99 a month or $69 a year. If you don't it's $9.99 a month or $99 a year. Either way that's a really good deal for what you are going to be getting.

Here's the deal. With plus, you get to listen to all of their audiobooks...for FREE! Something I noticed on this is that you get to listen to even the newest books that are just barely in the store for FREE. I love this! Who has the time to run to the store to grab the book the very day it comes out? Not me, I'm too busy chasing kids around to do that!

Not to mention - have you…

SeaQuest Aquarium Giveaway

For this week's Friday Favorite (I know...it's only Wednesday!) I want to tell you about something new that I got to try out just last week. It's the SeaQuest Aquarium located in the Layton Hills Mall in Layton. 




This is a pretty new thing, it actually just opened in November. It's new, it's beautiful and there really is nothing like it located in Davis County. And actually, the way that it's been set up there isn't a whole lot like it out there. You see, it's not just an aquarium, it's really an interactive experience. There are only a few exhibits in the whole aquarium that have animals in them that you can't/shouldn't interact with. Those exhibits have high walls on them so you really can't interact with them anyway. Everything else has low walls. You can touch, feed, examine pretty much anything you see here. That makes it so much more than an aquarium.

I love the way it's set up in areas. Each of the rooms has a different and fun …
