Though you may be only 20 minutes from downtown Salt Lake City, you’ll feel sure you’ve been dropped off in the middle of the French countryside, transported right at the mouth of gorgeous Little Cottonwood Canyon. Or perhaps you’ll just ask someone to pinch you out of your amazing daydream, but not just yet…

Across a charming brick driveway, through fairytale leaf-covered gates, the 20-acre, jaw-dropping La Caille estate comes into view. The mystical landscape reveals authentic Old World French architecture, lush gardens, a Seyval Blanc vineyard, swans swimming in glistening ponds and brightly colored peacocks meandering around the property.

Overflowing with Country French charm, the restaurant consists of four separate dining rooms with a combined indoor seating capacity of 400 guests. Delectable dinners are served seven days a week, as well as an amazing brunch each Saturday and Sunday. Enjoy brunch inside or out on the patio surrounded by the mesmerizing landscape. And for those wanting the enchanting La Caille experience to linger a little longer, their newly renovated, storybook Cottage is available for overnight stays.
