The Southwestern and Greek omelets, both of which provide an interesting twist on a traditional breakfast item.
A Southern-inspired breakfast joint in Orem, Utah, Joe’s Café is best known for its “Slap Ya Mama Southern Seasoning.” But don’t worry, the only kick you’ll be getting is a kick of flavor you’ll get from one of their omelets.

Although Hub & Spoke is certainly diner-inspired, its fare is a lot more gourmet than its name suggests. Case in point: the Salt Lake omelet, which combines house-made porchetta, pickled red peppers, caramelized onion, and cheddar into a fluffy eggy creation made with foodies in mind.
