Hasen Cone spent more than a decade squeezing, shaking, and pouring fresh limeade at Salt Lake City’s main farmer’s market. And while he could have easily built a brick-and-mortar stand that makes nothing but the sour stuff, his recently opened Sweet Lake Biscuits & Limeade is more ambitious.
The brunch-centric menu is served Tuesdays through Sundays from 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The Hoss has juicy fried chicken, a fried egg, crispy bacon, and melted cheddar piled high on a fat, flaky, Southern-style biscuit and served in a pool of sausage gravy. Other notable stack-ups include the Pokey Joe (pulled pork cut with crispy onions, cheddar, slaw, and a bracing limeade salsa) and La Burger Buena (grass-fed beef topped with queso fresco, cucumber guacamole, tomatoes, cream cheese, tortilla chips, and more of that limeade salsa action). If you’re ravenously hungry, add a side of crunchy red quinoa hash browns.
Getting a limeade is a no-brainer, too: Cone makes four varieties, including tongue-tingling habanero, refreshing mint, and cooling honeydew cucumber.
