St George Grub, Coffee and Hang Outs

I should have entitled this page “But Can I Get Coffee & Beer?”

Yes, of course you can.  As a former Clevelander, food and drink is important to me. So I have been picking through the St George dining scene, which has been s-l-o-w-l-y improving over the last 9 1/2 years and I will tell you some of my favorite, local places below.  Local Places only.  Applebees, Olive Garden and that stuff, you can find those on your own.  The little gems here are places that I like and frequently take my real estate team members and are a part of every day life here in St. George.

Coffee to Go

Perks Espresso and Smoothies on Sunset Boulevard.  Friendly, personal service, good coffee, reasonable prices with a drive thru window for on your way to work or school.

Breakfast in St George

The Wagon Wheel.  John Wayne ate here, I think he really did.  Well, maybe not in this exact location, but at Dick’s Cafe on the boulevard before they tore it down to build the bank, and now the mantle of Dick’s Cafe has been passed on to The Wagon Wheel.  At least they have the pictures to prove it on the walls.  Check it out.   Big portions, extremely reasonable.  Best waitress, Tina.  Seriously!

Breakfast at Tifiny’s.  Really cool, quirky place for crepes.  Try the Pavlova.  This Creperie restaurant was located in Santa Clara at the old Granary, but has now moved to Bluff Street near St George Blvd.   Bon appetit!

George’s Corner.  It is now open for Breakfast. I really enjoy Beef Short Rib Hash and they have Gluten Free items too. Located at Ancestor Square.

Lunch in Land O’ the Sun

Jazzy’s Rock n Roll Cafe –  Get the cheeseburger special.  It’s a real deal from 3:00 – 6:00 pm but its just great anytime for $1 more.  They serve the world famous VEYO PIES and BEER! Don’t eat those together.

The Black Bear on Bluff Street.   Large menu and miniature pies,  small Utah/Idaho chain.

Breakfast at Tifiny’s.  This really cool, quirky place for crepes serves lunch too.  Home made potato chips Turkey Crepes, Sandwiches and soup.

Dinner in Dixie

Piccolo Mondo – Chef Alfredo, the proprietor, serves up authentic and superior Italian fare.  Restaurant is on 700 South t in St. George and seating is limited, so get there early or make a reservation.  You must try it.

Painted Pony The Pony is considered by many to be the best restaurant in town, year after year.  Great meal, white table cloth experience. Local family owned.

Anasazi Steakhouse – On Sunset Boulevard.  Although I go to a restaurant so the chef can prepare my food, this is the  only place in town where you can cook your food on a hot rock at your table.  Interactive dining and don’t forget the Chocolate Fondue as a dessert.  Simply delicious.  Call ahead on the weekends to get a table…

George’s Corner is less expensive than Painted Pony, yet still excellent.   I really enjoy the Lamb Burger and their mixed drink menu is quite nice.   Located at Ancestor Square, LIVE MUSIC too.  Check their website for who is playing.

Panda Garden on 900 East above the Boulevard.  Really good Chinese food, nice ambiance, clean and great service.  I like the Walnut Shrimp.  Tasty!

Xetava Gardens – Located out at Kayenta, great little scenic drive 20 minutes from the center of St. George,  Get on Greg’s email list for specials and discounts. I highly recommend!

Cupcakes and Desserts

Grandma Tobler’s  Sticky Buns, need I say more.  Southern Utah Original

25 Main.  Located on Main Street, how quaint right?  Cupcakes-ooh lala,  get the coconut ones.  Scrumptious and really cheap after 7:00 PM.

Veyo Pies.  Yes, yes,  you will drive all the way up Route 18 to Veyo (16 miles) to get pie.  This pie has been discovered by international athletes.  They do their race (St. George Marathon) and return for their pie.  Like cream pies?  Try the Veyo Volcano -erupting with creamy, chocolate and caramel deliciousness. Its probably, like, 8000 calories a slice.  Amazing and so far, not yet outlawed by the govt.  Yep, I just said that.

Night Life

Jazzy’s Rock n Roll Cafe – Did I already mention Beer?  Beer license and Live Music

George’s Corner-Full liquor License and Live Music

Wingnuts Sports Bar with many televisions, excellent baked wings and a full bar.  Open til midnight on the weekends.  Located on River Road and 100 South behind Chik Fil A.

Iggys Sports Grill-a sports grill that features excellent salads and the ability to a see the big game in a friendly atmosphere.
