The Eva’s Bakery on Main Street has done more for connecting Salt Lake to Paris since the direct Delta flight became available a few years ago. Don’t have the cash to get to a boulangerie in the City of Light? Come here, we say. Once inside, you’ll forget you’re stateside anyhow. Owner, Charlie Perry, has quite simply nailed it. The simple breads [made, literally, from only organic flour, water, and salt] and delicious pastries, [made, literally, of every delicious thing you can imagine] are incredible. The concept here is simple: do like they do in ol’ Paname. Stop in for a quick baguette and ‘sweet’, head in to dine, have some lunch, or stop for a cup of coffee. Think of this as the neighborhood market that you frequent, but without the effort. It’s precisely what we’ve been waiting for in the neighborhood; a place to get comfy with a book and a treat, where you won’t be rushed out some hours and lattes later. Come in for all three meals, then come back…Ms. Ruby runs the joint, and her smile is well worth the 4th visit.

Items at the top of our list: the Annelle [a portable baked crème brûlée bit of heaven, baked with bees wax and buttered rum]; the Tart [ a fancy pistaccio cobler baked in tart with red wine]; and seriously…shut up about the bakers pies. I’m moving my office to the table in the corner. It’s where I belong.
