The Judge (Roman Jvdge) Café and Grill is a bustling neighborhood eatery in Salt Lake's downtown district, owned by longtime restaurateur Royal Tyler. The café features a diverse menu of carefully prepared classics and just enough unexpected twists to keep the meal -- and the dining experience -- interesting. There are many choices for dining in downtown Salt Lake but if you are looking for authentic, great-tasting food in an elegant, turn-of-the-20th-Century environment, this is your place!
The café is a graceful and charming place on the ground floor of the vintage Jvdge Building on Broadway Street. The historic building was built in 1906 by Mary Judge, a business-savvy widow who commissioned the internationally renowned David C. Dart as chief architect. Mary Judge was married to John Judge, a partner with Thomas Kearns and David Keith in developing the famous Silver King Mine in Park City. Originally known as the Railroad Exchange Building, by 1909 twenty- two railroad companies had their Salt Lake offices here. The building features a copper cornice, colorful ceramic tile triangles, and swags of carved stone fruit above the seventh-story windows. The building is continually upgraded to make sure it is nothing less than the most classical and tastefully designed historical building in Utah.
Over the years the café has become a popular dining spot for locals, businessmen, and tourists from nearby downtown hotels.
Royal Tyler and his staff cordially invite you to come to The Judge Café and Grill in downtown Salt Lake City for a truly unique and delectable dining experience.
