You have spent the day at one of the nearby National Parks. (Zion, Bryce or Grand) You had an amazing time, and now you want to top it off with an amazing meal. Where to eat??
I often recommend my guests to try out one of my favorite places – Wild Thyme Cafe
I love their tag line – “Like it should be. Small batches cooked in a scratch kitchen.”
And they use ingredients from their own organic gardens, including one on-site!
Wild Thyme has options for all. High-quality beef, fish and chicken dishes, including gluten-free entrees. Plus ample selections for vegans and vegetarians.
My sister and I had the Pistachio Chicken and Tropical Piggy on our last visit. Nom Nom
Every day they pick greens for the salads. Either on-site or their off-site greenhouse. Now that is super fresh!
Entrees focus on local Southwestern flavors, with an occasional nod to the Cajun.
But let’s not forget dessert. Viki the owner is our renowened “Dessert Queen”. The cheesecake Sis and I had was “melt-in-your-mouth” wonderful!
Wild Thyme Cafe has a great location right downtown
On Highway 89, just across from the Holiday Inn and a block South of the visitors center.
Open for lunch and dinner every day
