Third-Wave Coffee at Three Pines

Also: Zucca moves, romancing at Log Haven



Third-Wave Coffee
A few years ago, Meg Frampton and Nick Price (pictured) moved to Los Angeles to make music as part of Meg & Dia. In 2015, Frampton and Price returned to Salt Lake City to open a coffee cart that serves "third-wave" coffee. (The first wave is grocery-store coffee like Folgers; the second wave represents higher-quality mass-marketed dark roasts like those of Starbucks. The third wave is artisan-style coffee with a focus on the origin of coffee and methods of production.) While in LA, Price learned the barista arts from Handsome Coffee co-founder Michael Phillips, the Barista World Champion of 2010. Upon returning to Salt Lake City, the couple purchased new coffee equipment and launched Three Pines Coffee on the patio of specialty-food store, Liberty Heights Fresh (1290 S. 1100 East), where they're open six days a week, Monday through Friday, from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and Sunday, 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. For more information, visit

Zucca 2.0
Zucca Trattoria & Market—now called merely Zucca—has relocated from South Ogden and reopened at 225 25th Street in downtown Ogden. The all-new Zucca is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner and offers weekend brunch, as well. The new 25th Street location features an outdoor atrium for year-round al fresco patio dining. Chef Geraldine Sepulveda's extensive menu ranges from pasta dishes and risottos to Neapolitan-style pizzas, lamb chops, oven-roasted mahi mahi, pan-seared Chilean sea bass, burgers, steaks, and much more, including gourmet specials in the atrium on weekends. For reservations, visit or phone 801-475-7077.

Romance in the Air
Log Haven restaurant (6451 E. Millcreek Canyon Road, 801-272-8255)—where my wife, Faith, handles special events—was recognized by USA Today in a readers' choice poll as one of the 10 Best Romantic Restaurants in the U.S. "It's like stepping into a fairy tale, complete with rustic fireplaces and even a water wheel," said USA Today. Congrats to everyone at Log Haven on earning this prestigious award. Read more about it online at
