Ask anybody in Utah’s Cache Valley where to go for breakfast or for the best banana split, and you’ll get the same answer every time. Angie’s Restaurant sets the standard around here for food, friendly service and more.

“We’re still old-fashioned in that we crack every single egg for each order,” says Saboor Sahely, Angie’s owner. No frozen eggs from a carton for his customers. “We make things from scratch, and we’re proud of the fact that we only use the best ingredients. We don’t cut corners on portions, either. And we treat you like a person, not a number,” Sahely says. “We’ve got the most friendly staff in the world.”

What’s more, breakfast isn’t the only meal cooking at Angie’s. The restaurant has a full menu of delicious fare pre­pared to the owner’s exacting standards. “We chop the potatoes and onions and vegetables at five in the morning to make our soup for the day,” Sahely says. “People come here because of the quality of the food. We have some customers who eat three meals a day here. If they don’t show up for a few days, we call to make sure they’re okay.”

Now that’s service.

And save room for dessert – a lot of room. Angie’s famous banana split, the Kitchen Sink, has just about everything in it and is big enough to serve a whole family. If an individual manages to polish off the mountains of ice cream, rivers of gooey toppings and loads of fresh bananas, he or she earns a bumper sticker that says, “I Cleaned the Sink at Angie’s” – a real status symbol in these parts.

Sahely opened Angie’s, named for his daughter, 25 years ago. The inde­pendent, family-owned restaurant, which serves more than 1,000 patrons daily, can be found on national travel publisher Magellan Press’s list of restaurants Where the Locals Eat. “Angie’s is really a piece of the valley,” Sahely says. “It’s true Americana.”
