Welcome to The Weekend
Who doesn't love the weekend? Weekends conjure up thoughts of relaxation and fun. Weekends are a chance to unwind and take a break from the rat race. Weekends are the best part of the week. Now you can enjoy that feeling any day of the week at The Weekend cafe in downtown Logan.
This new cafe is locally owned and operated. It offers sandwiches, Ibis coffee, espresso, tea, Italian sodas, and locally made treats. The space is fresh, laid back, and inviting. It's a great spot to grab a drink and a snack and settle in for a chat with friends.
The space also doubles as a small scale art gallery. The art work, including the mural on the wall, is all done by the fabulous Mariah Rupp, an art major at USU.
I tried a brownie and an Italian soda with cream. The brownie was everything a brownie it should be, think, rich, and halfway between fudge and cake with large chunks of chopped chocolate all through out. I asked for suggestions for the soda and ended up going with Lavender/Coconut and loved it.
The Weekend Cafe is owned by Jenny Shepherd. Her husband, Zach Shepherd, owns Directive Boardshop which is adjacent to the cafe in the former Joyride Bikes location, a few doors down from the Ellen Eccles Theatre.
You can find The Weekend on facebook and instagram. Or just stop by and check it out in person at 57 S Main St, Logan, UT. They aren't just opened on the weekends. The cafe is open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 10pm.
