The Pelican Lake Cafe is located overlooking the Pelican Lake, it’s a bit out of the way but well worth the detour. If you are traveling along Highway 40, between Roosevelt and Vernal, Utah, take a turn to the south onto highway 88 heading to Ouray and Pelican Lake. Stay on that road for about 10 mile and you can’t miss it.
The food is Good and Plenty at a very reasonable price. The breakfast burritos are shockingly good and the Burgers are absolutely the best in the state save for the Buffalo Burger at the Bohemian Brewery in Murray. What gives Pelican the edge though… the bun. Its fantastic.
I sold a cool tactical shotgun to the owner and we talked about his cafe and the food there… He’s proud of his place and justly so. Very cool guy. Stop in, eat a burger (or his favorite, the Chicken Taco) and tell him that the Ogre sent you.
I bring this up again, because I took two of my boys there to grab a bite. It was well worth the drive.
