lunch with mama on the outskirts of salt lake city!

Today was a good day. my mom and i decided that we were gonna explore the options of sandy, UT, for some tasty culinary choices for a good lunch.
we started by heading down state street and stopping in at the CUTEST little bakery, "Nothing Bundt Cakes", dessert sounded like the best option at the time so we went in. we were instantly rewarded for our choice by the best smelling shop in town, complete with adorable decorations, and two very nice people to explain to us how the shop worked. :]
we ordered our  white chocolate raspberry "bundtlet" (the equivilent of a cupcake only bundt shaped), then headed back out to find lunch.

 It didn't take us long before we came upon a soup and salad place that sounded good, (ZUPAS!) so we went in. we were greeted at the door by a very nice lady who asked if it was our first time eating there, we said yes, and she gave us the low-down on how to order, what was most popular and the special of the day. Zupas was soooo crowded, which to me was a good sign. everyone seemed happy who was eating and it smelled amazing in there. so we got in line the long line. it went fast and soon we were ordering our salads and sandwiches, and sampling and picking out our soups. the best part was that we got to try a sample of the soup before we ordered it. which was good and bad because i changed my mind each time i tried a new soup, they were all soo good! the people were some of the best servers that ive seen at a semi-fast food place in a looooong time, they actually seemed as though they enjoyed their jobs. which was nice to see, amazing food and a pleasant atmosphere. good deal. :]
we got our drinks and once again i was surprised by the sheer amount of choices they had for soft drinks. they even had syrup pumps so that if you didnt want on of the many different kinds to choose from you could just create your own flavor. that was soo cool to me.

we ate our lunches and enjoyed each others company, then when we were done we returned to the car to try our "bundlet". we were both pretty full so we said that we would try a little bit, save half, and let my mom take it home with her so that my cousin and brother could try it. that plan really didn't work out so well... we pretty much demolished the cupcake, and licked the bowl clean. it was soooo good. I strongly recomend both places, Zupas,  and Nothing Bundt Cakes. they were both sooo good.  needless to say, lunch was great, dessert was AMAZING, and the time spent with my mom was, of course, priceless.

The End!

  1. Oooh! That looks so good! I used to live in the tops of the Rockies and there was a restaurant called MiZuppa. I saw Zuppas and have been hesitant to try it because I didn't think there was any way it could compare, it was sooo good! I am glad to hear that Zuppas is excellent as well. I may have to go and try it. Thanks for the review!
    And time spent with mothers is always time well spent, I think!
