Community is at the heart of this new Kimball Junction venture by father-son duo Brooks and David Kirchheimer, opening this winter. “Our vision is to become the gathering spot of Park City,” says Brooks. “We want to be the go-to spot for locals, providing a fun, approachable, family-friendly place for all occasions.”

The 5,200-square-foot space has an industrial yet warm aesthetic, with high ceilings and exposed steel beams hovering over group-friendly booths and a bar. Chef Jordan Harvey—who worked alongside Brooks at Montage Deer Valley and former Main Street eatery Zoom—prepares “eclectic yet approachable” American food, ranging from ramen and pot stickers to burgers and salads. The bulk of the menu falls in the $8–$22 range, with takeout available for lunch and dinner.

Ellie Shropshire brought 15 years of Park City catering experience to her first restaurant, located inside the Kimball Art Center. Ellie’s Café, which opened in June 2018, serves local, seasonal food for breakfast and lunch in a museum-like space: modern and bright, with art-adorned walls. “It’s creative, clean cuisine,” Shropshire says. “We make everything here from scratch—simple yet delicious.”

Although the menu changes seasonally—winter’s version will feature more soup, she says—some items are always available. Morning staples include freshly baked cinnamon rolls, breakfast tacos, and avocado toast, while the lunch menu offers healthy yet hearty sandwiches and delicious veggie-packed salads. And, on a warm fuzzy note, 5 percent of the café’s sales are donated to local nonprofits each month as part of the Ellie’s Cares program.
