There are many things we love about living in Logan. The mountains, the people, Utah State, the summer events...and the FOOD! There are a wealth of wonderful local restaurants here in Cache Valley! Here's a round-up of our nine favorites.
The 9 Best Local Cache Valley Restaurants
Ready to see our favorite local Cache Valley restaurants? Check out our list below. Please note these are not in ranked order and we still have some restaurants to try!
1. The Beehive Grill & Pub
The Beehive Grill has served Cache Valley patrons for many years and is definitely at the top of our list. The owner and executive Chef, Dustin McKay has had many years of experience in culinary arts and worked in several restaurants here in the valley and in Salt Lake City. The Beehive Grill boasts a varied menu featuring meat entrees, burgers, sandwiches, salads, vegetarian dishes, pastas, soups, seafood, tacos, and more! Order one of their hand-crafted sodas or beers on the side and end your meal with one of their house-made gelatos with 12 daily flavors.
Their burgers! They are all good, but we especially love the Smokehouse BBQ, Santa Monica Patty Melt, and the Elk Brunch Burger. Get the Jalapeno Beer Cheese fries on the side and a seasonal soda or root beer to top off the perfect meal.
Take advantage of their 2 for $20 or Late Lunch Early Dinner menus. Both feature fantastic menu items for a killer deal! Kids also eat free Monday and Tuesday (this cannot be combined with another offer).
2. Herm's Inn
Herman's Inn was built in the early 1900's and was your first chance or last chance to gas up before entering or leaving Logan Canyon. In 2012, Jim Laub restored the historic building and it reopened as Herm's Inn. Now Herm's Inn serves breakfast and lunch and boasts some of the best food in the valley! Everything on the menu is hand made from scratch in the restaurant. Try one of their delicious cinnamon rolls or a pancake bigger than your face that can feed your whole family inside or outside on their comfortable patio seating.
For breakfast? The Macho Benny, pancakes, or a breakfast burrito. For lunch? One of their sandwiches (the Cuban and Inside Out Grilled Cheese are both fantastic) or their Mac-of-the-Day!
Herm's Inn is very busy, especially on Saturdays! Go on a weekday or early on Saturday. Follow @hermsinn on Instagram for the chance to win a free cinnamon roll weekly.
3. Le Nonne
Located in a house off of 100 East, Le Nonne is a fantastic Italian restaurant. Pier Antonio and Stephanie Micheli are the owners and managers. Pier Antonio Micheli, also the executive chef, grew up in Forte dei Marmi and learned traditional northern Italian cooking from his mother and grandmother. He put these skills to use in California and Hawaii before coming to Logan, Utah. They are open for dinner and have a completely delicious menu! They are also a great romantic spot.
Our favorite pasta dish is the Pannette Alla Pera, a penne pasta in a cream sauce with pears and gorgonzola cheese. Their pasta is not made in-house, but their raviolis and gnocchi are and we highly recommend either.
Le Nonne is only open for dinner, except on Valentine's Day. This is where Rob took Katie for their first Valentine's Day and they strongly recommend it.
Elements opened in 2009 and has been a favorite ever since! Located next to the Logan River, it features an upscale interior, a nice outdoor patio setting, and a variety of delicious American cuisine. Elements is currently being remodeled and will reopen May 1st. We are excited to see the changes to its look and menu!
5. Firehouse Pizzaria
Opened by two Cache Valley brothers, Firehouse Pizzaria creates delicious pizzas in stone-fired ovens. The pizzas, pastas, and sandwiches cook directly on the stone hearth, giving them a unique and tasty flavor! Try one of their pizzas or pasta and finish your meal with one of their famous FH'zzookies! You won't be disappointed.
We love the Down South Cajun, Cordon Blue, and Artichoke Chicken pasta and pizzas. Our favorite FH'zzookies are the triple chocolate or the flavor of the month!
Always get the focaccia bread! Also, if you and your friend have crazy eating skills, try eating their monster 36" pizza in one hour and get not only that pizza free, but all your pizza for a year!
Tucked back between Main Street and 100 West, you'll find the restaurant, Sabores. Chef Eliseo Garcia has created a menu that truly has something for everyone! We're not kidding. Their menu features food from Mexico, Thailand, Cuba, Vietnam, Puerto Rico, Peru, Bolivia, India, Italy, Argentina, and America. And it is all wonderful!
We've loved their burgers, curry, and the Lomo Saltado with Rice so far, and look forward to trying more items from their menu in the future!
The location is small so it can get cramped at peak times. Try to avoid right around noon and between 6 and 7 if possible for quicker service.
7. Indian Oven
On Main Street, between 100 and 200 North you'll find Indian Oven. Ash and Jenise Oberoi had many years of experience running other restaurants, but decided to try opening their own Indian restaurant, cooking the foods Ash had eaten growing up. It was previously housed in the gas station location where Tandoori Oven is now, and moved to its current location in 2008. The large menu at Indian Oven has so many fantastic items, all flavored with the Oberoi's own blend of spices. There are also plenty of vegetarian options, which we love! This is the restaurant Rob and Katie's family request most when they visit from out of town!
We have not been disappointed with any of the entrees we have tried at Indian Oven. Some of our favorites meals include the Chicken Tikka Masala, Chicken Tandoori, Lamb Vindaloo, Malai Kofta, Vegetable Coconut Kurma, Naan or Indian Chappati, and their Mango Lassi made with homemade yogurt!
New to Indian food, or want a variety of items for a great price? Check out their lunch buffet.
8. Takara Sushi
Takara Sushi is famous for mouth-watering sushi at an affordable price. You'll find a huge menu of sushi available at HALF PRICE! The restaurant is a great place for lunch or dinner and a great place to try sushi for your first time!
We love to start off our meal with their Crab and Scallop Cakes appetizer, and then order a variety of sushi rolls. Our favorites that we get every time are the Anger Management and Crazy Boy rolls. We also love the French Kiss, Happy, Popcorn Lobster, Red Rock, and the Ten Ten rolls.
Since the restaurant is smaller, it is best to go for lunch/early dinner or a weeknight dinner. If it is your first time trying sushi, start with something tempura fried, like the Anger Management or Crazy Boy rolls we suggested above.
9. Jack's Wood-Fired Oven
Looking for hand-crafted creative pizzas with great flavor? Jack's is your place! Opened in 2009, Jack's is known for its crispy texture and smokey flavor. This flavor comes from it's Valoriani oven fueled with maple wood. We love that Jack's pizza uses only fresh ingredients, including its dough, which comes from organic, locally milled flour. You can also see local raw Slide Ridge on some of its menu items. With their large list of creative pizza options, you're sure to find something everyone will love!
We recommend the Chuckwagon pizza. The next pizzas on our list to try are the Bleu Apple and Sunnyside pizza.
Head to Jack's on Friday or Saturday nights to see live, local musicians preform while you enjoy your meal. You can also see live jazz on Mondays.
