I get the Scandinavian breakfast and it is so good! I also really like the veggie eggs Benedict. The Oregon chai is divine. I love the ambiance here. It's very retro chic and the food is always light and flavorful.

I always feel like I am visiting a friend whenever I eat at Finn's. The staff is fantastic and attentive. The food is always fresh and delicious and plentiful and a great value! Spend a weekend morning there, out on the patio, drinking coffee, eating a big omelette, seeing locals and smell the nearby planted herbs. True heaven!

I'm sure everything is lovely and I tried a bunch of things including the trout, bacon, pancakes and the chocolate croissant, but when you make such a perfect over egg what else needs to be said about breakfast. Finn's is a legend, so I knew enough to get there very early to enjoy it in a peaceful state, but it... More

What a wonderful eating experience. When we stepped into Finn s restaurant it was a beautiful summer morning and the doors were opened to the outside with a cool breeze wafting in the air. Our first impression was of freshness and cleanliness.It looked like it had been scrubbed clean from top to bottom. We were promptly seated and began our... More

Love the Nordic omelette. The variety sandwiches platter was great. Check the specials out as some not on menu and a chance to try more authentic dishes. Delicious coffee. Check out the historical pictures of the restaurants/family. Walls are adorned with rotating local artists pieces also for sale.

My wife & I enjoyed breakfast here while visiting SLC for the weekend. The Scandinavian breakfast was wonderful, a must try! My wife thoroughly enjoyed the Chorizo omelette & the sourdough pancakes. The pancakes came with a homemade raspberry preserve that was to die for! We both wish we had enough time to stop here again before we flew home.

Not American comfort food - branded as Swedish breakfast food. $11-$15 a plate with no sides (French toast is just french toast, no eggs ect.) Overall I don't if I'd say the food is worth the price, but the atmosphere was. Maybe it was just the breakfast wasn't outstanding so we will be back for try lunch. The atmosphere was... More

Art moderne building. Can be noisy when crowded. Some outside seating. Limited menu. Mostly breakfast items. I had veggie sandwich on onion rolls. It was good, but I ordered it without mayonnaise and got mayonnaise anyway. A friend ordered the combination of three open-face sandwiches and liked them all.

I can't believe I have not reviewed Finns before this. It is exceptional. In my mind there is no better tasting, or healthier breakfast in the state. The eggs and trout are exceptional, as is the gazpacho (when they are serving it - which is rare). It is all cooked carefully and without too much butter. The hashbrowns are perfect.... More

Great start to our July weekend. Waffles at Finns. Very attentive staff. Best sausage patty I've had in a long long time. Waffles were good too.
