If you’re like me, you rarely pass up an opportunity to partake of bacon.

Pig & A Jelly Jar

Recently, my girlfriend and I were strolling along Historic 25th street and happened upon Pig & A Jelly Jar. As we walked through the 100-year-old structure, we appreciated the efforts made to preserve the rich history of this establishment’s brick walls, high ceilings, and hardwood floors, but, given the beautiful day we opted to sit on the patio.

Scanning the drink menu, our server informed us that the PBR Mary was the way to go. Served in a mason jar with a Cajun sea salt rim was PBR lager, with house made Bloody Mary mix, lime, and pickled green bean, a solid choice. My lady opted for the Pig Punch, a white wine spritzer with OJ and fresh fruit.

The Pig is known for their Chicken & Waffles. For the full experience, order it topped with a fried egg and bacon. My girl chose the vegetarian scramble made with cage free eggs, provolone cheese and bloody mary salsa, with a side of cottage fries, cubed potatoes with jalapeno, red pepper, onion and rosemary seasoning.

Not only did we fancy the fare, but also the staff was incredibly friendly and engaging. Here also are a couple of other Ogden brunch favorites.

Rooster’s Brewing

Rooster’s just celebrated it’s 20th anniversary on 25th Street and serves brunch from 10 am – 2 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. If you’re looking for something sweet, go with the Kailua Waffles topped with fresh fruit and homemade caramel sauce. The atmosphere is inviting and the the food is excellent, as are the Mimosas and Bloody Marys.


If you want riverside brunch, Slackwater Pizzeria is your best bet. Brunch is served Sundays from 10am-2pm, and the go-to local favorite is the breakfast pizza which consists of a thinly shaved fried potato base with peppered bacon, herb-sausage and three-cheese blend topped with two eggs and baked in the oven. In addition to Slackwater’s diverse beer menu, they also offer by-the-glass Mimosas and sangria.
