This diminutive strip mall coffee shop/café is only open for breakfast and lunch but packs enormous flavor into a small space. The jumbo omelets at Carl’s Café are perennial crowd-pleasers and the French toast gets raves as well. At lunchtime, the delish Easterner sandwich features hot pastrami with cheese and tomatoes. The service is always friendly and efficient at Carl’s but get there early to avoid the breakfast lines. A good choice for a pre-ski breakfast before heading up Little or Big Cottonwood Canyon. Bring cash, Carl doesn’t accept credit cards.
