This was a pleasant surprise after exploring the area for a few days. The quality and freshness of the food was just as good as one could find in a major city, yet the location is arguably "in the middle of nowhere". I had a salad that was very crisp and fresh, while the dressing rivaled that of any good... More

The service staff is usually overwhelmed. I hate to see the pain in their eyes but I tip good so it's tolerable. My drink is always right but my pizza is not. I'm always starving when I go there and any pizza is good so I don't even care Just make sure to repeat your order clearly and at least... More

Very useful place to start the day. Coffee and cake near guidebooks, gear and maps. Also clean public restrooms. Some of the more interesting food for sale in Escalante. Interesting travelers are every table

Since we visited Escalante in November, many of the restaurants we closed. Some opened for the weekend. This was not a problem since the Outfitters café fulfilled all our needs. We ordered Pizza twice and both were excellent. We also tried the quiche which was very good. Good Beer and good food.

The cafe was recommended by the staff at our hotel. The two salads we tried were fresh and delicious. The pizza was also fantastic.

Excellent pizza, cold beer and it's the state outpost for liquor and wine. You can buy bug repellent, a patagonia shirt or hire a fishing guide.

There are only a hand-full of restaurant options in this town. At 7 pm on a Tuesday night in Oct. they won't take our to-go-order because the kitchen was too busy. So, we drove over and ordered in the restaurant. Pizza was $18 to $26 for a 16". They also had a smaller size for less money. We ordered the... More

We had the quiche and ham, egg, cheese roll with fruit and hollandaise sauce and it was delish. We ordered at the counter but it was brought to our table. We also got a raspberry turnover to go for our trail snack. Very pleased with food and service..

In a town of 800 sometimes the eats can be limited and certainly pizza can be bad. But this is high quality pizza for any city and it is spectacular for such a small town. After a day of slots nothing satisfies like pizza and here you also have options for utah draft beers. You also get to meet a... More
