Sugar House is brimming with shiny new bars and eateries, and here's one more. Wired Walrus Euro Cafe (801-946-2079, Wired.JustBecause.info) opened recently in Sugar House Commons at 2155 S. Highland Drive, serving breakfast and lunch. Breakfast at the Wired Walrus features an omelet bar and waffle bar, along with housemade gourmet donuts, pastries, sticky buns, fresh-baked quiche, yogurt and more. Lunch runs the gamut from soft pretzels, bruschetta, paninis and salads to soup with roasted tomato, baby peppers and artichokes, creme fraiche and herb-EVOO drizzle. And, as the name might suggest, the Wired Walrus provides free Wi-Fi.
Heber's Spin Cafe (220 N. Main, 435-654-0251, SpinCafe.net) is celebrating pumpkin season and Oktoberfest all month long. Through the end of October, the folks at Spin Cafe are serving up grilled bratwurst with sauerkraut, braised red cabbage and German potato salad. You can wash it all down with a Sam Adams or Ayinger Oktoberfest beer, hot chocolate or Spin's delicious pumpkin spice Hottie drink. For dessert, there's even pumpkin gelato.
