Summertime means dining al fresco, and Oasis Café offers an intriguing patio where you can savor nourishing cuisine and bask in sunshine and fresh air.
When the weather cooperates, most are drawn to Oasis’ interior courtyard patio, which is secluded and quiet—a bonus when the conversation is as important as the food. One side of the patio borders the dining room and kitchen, and the other is adjacent to Golden Braid Books. Hanging baskets explode with colorful flowers while the surrounding flower-laden pots, sculptures, water features and fireplace create the effect that you’re dining in a Zen garden. Overhead, shades block direct sunlight and provide dappled light onto the patio tables.
The food is creative and handcrafted. Carnivores, pescatarians, vegetarians and vegans all can find appealing dining options on the menu.
The beet tower salad, in particular, is spectacular. Tender red and yellow beets are sliced thin and alternatingly stacked. Atop the beets is peppery arugula with a dollop of chutney. Finishing the salad is an orange vinaigrette and goat cheese.
Another favorite menu item is the grilled salmon with a honey-lavender polenta cake and arugula salad dressed with olive oil and merlot vinaigrette.
Oasis Café offers wine by the glass or bottle and favors vineyards that prioritize sustainability. They also support local brewers by offering many Utah beers. A full-bar caters to cocktail and spirit lovers. Come restore yourself at Oasis Café, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily.
