Midway, Utah is this little piece of heaven town tucked away in the Heber Valley — about 20 minutes away from Park City and 30 minutes from Orem/Provo, Utah. It’s home to Swiss Days, Solider Hollow, and the Midway Ice Castles. It’s a tight-knit community but accommodates thousands of tourists a year, and there’s a few charming, delicious Midway Utah restaurants that help with this but are also local favorites.
My family has lived in Midway for about 7 years now, and my husband Cristian and I have joined them the past few months. We love Midway’s quaint, peaceful living nestled within the mountains. During the time we’ve been here, we’ve discovered a few places to eat at that will always love.
Our Top 3 Midway Utah Restaurants You Must Try
This adorable little bakery is a fairly new addition to the downtown Midway Utah restaurants, and used to be the Midway Country Corner bakery.
The food here is hard to beat. Not only are their baked goods and fresh bread TO DIE FOR…
…but they have really yummy lunch options, too.
Mine and Cristian’s favorite thing to get is their Chicken Salad Sandwich, which usually comes with kettle chips and a little cup of fruit. Their lunch specials change daily, but the bakery usually posts to their Instagram story what the special will be for that day in the morning.
My ALL TIME FAVORITE thing to get is their Orange Roll ($3). It’s like a cinnamon roll, but with orange instead. I seriously will call ahead before walking over (all of these Midway Utah restaurants are in walking distance to my house) and ask if they have any. They’re that good. The cream cheese frosting is some of the best I’ve ever had, and the roll dough melts in your mouth.
If there aren’t any orange rolls, their other rolls (Cinnamon, Strawberry and Mixed Berry) are also good.
The aesthetic of a restaurant can make all the difference. And Midway Bakery on Main doesn’t disappoint with its vibe. It has a very “farmhouse” feel, and I could totally live in there if I could. I mean, all the bread and treats I can eat? Yes, please.
- Hours: 8 am – 4 pm Tuesday-Saturday, closed Sunday and Monday
- Adress: 206B W Main, Midway, Utah
The menu for this trendy downtown Midway Utah restaurant features artisan food made of fresh, organic, and local ingredients. In fact, they use cheese from Heber Valley Artisan Cheese, which is a mini cheese factory also located in Midway.
Lola’s Street Kitchen began as a food truck, and opened the restaurant this June. It’s already a huge hit with the locals, since many of them loved the food truck first.
Their menu rotates, but a few things you can find on it are their Ahi Tuna and Quinoa Bowl, Sweet French Steak Salad, Spicy Black Bean Veggie Burger, Portobello Melt, Tzatziki Lamb Gyro, and so much more.
My go-to is their Buttermilk Fried Chicken Sandwich ($11), but it is a specials item and isn’t available every day.
For some reason I’m not always a huge fan of chicken, but this is so good. It’s a perfectly fried (not greasy!) patty with sweet pickles, a lemon aioli, tomatoes, and lettuce. I could eat it every day.

But the best part? It comes with their Garlic Parmesan Fries and oh my goodness — you’ll never want to go back to regular fries they are THAT GOOD. Dip them in some fry sauce (a Utah necessity) and don’t look back.
They also sell some goodies from Midway Bakery here, and you can purchase drinks or other treats from the cooler. We recommend the Tres Leches Cake.
The inside is bright, airy, and so laid back. There’s lots of fun seating, with more outside.
There’s a outside seating area complete with cafe lights in the evenings. It’s literally the quintessential summer eatery.
- Hours: 11 am – 9 pm Monday-Thursday, 11 am – 10 pm Friday, and 11:30 am – 10 pm Saturday. Closed Sunday
- Address: 24 East Main Street, Midway, Utah
I’m 100% convinced this cookie place (aka one of the best Midway Utah restaurants) is preventing me from losing more of my baby weight. Kidding (am I?).
You’ll never have a softer, more delicious cookie anywhere ever.
Süss Cookie Company started in the home of founder and owner Jessica Larson. Now, the cookies are made in house in their open kitchen/store front on Center Street in Midway. You may only be able to get cookies here, but I’m not joking when I say it’s worth it.
The cookies are displayed on a long farmhouse style table, and there’s usually a small white plate next to each bunch of cookies with a single cookie cut into sections for you to taste.
My favorites are the Sour Cream Lemon, Cowboy, Coconut Joy, and Peanut Butter. Close seconds are the Coconut Carmel Drizzle (tastes like a Samoa girl scout cookie on steroids!) and Ginger Snap.
There’s a cookie (sometimes two) of the month each month, which is so much fun. We get excited when there’s a new flavor to try and look forward to the start of the month. There was a Root Beer Float cookie a couple of months ago that we couldn’t get enough of and definitely wouldn’t mind if it came back someday…maybe permanently? (Wink wink, Süss.)
You can taste as many as you’d like, and then choose which one’s you want and the cashier will box them up for you.
Süss Cookie Company just won Utah’s Best Chocolate Chip Cookie in Salt Lake Magazine.
They ship nationwide and are available at a few other locations wholesale (like the Heber Quench It). Here’s the prices:
- Hours: Noon – 5 pm Monday, 10 am – 5 pm Tuesday-Friday, closed Saturday and Sunday
- Address: 275 S Center Street, Midway, Utah (They also have a Provo store front coming soon! In the Riverwoods Shopping Center)
