Uniquely Utah: Mollie’s Cafe

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

In March of 1916, a Utah newspaper proclaimed that Snowville would soon be a metropolis. As evidence, the article mentioned a new jewelry store and barber shop.

In 2014 there is no jewelry store or barber shop. There's Mollie's, another small diner which I'm told is also very good, and the Flying J at the exit for Interstate 84.

But Mollie's Cafe seems to thrive not in spite of these circumstances, but in some ways, because of them.

In Salt Lake City or Ogden, the diner would have been knocked down, redeveloped and replaced with a chain store long, long ago.

But Mollie's is the real deal. It's that place you didn't think existed anymore, in a town that time nearly forgot.

Mollie's spirit and story dominates the story seen on FOX 13 for good reason: she's one of a kind. What you don't see and hear in the story are the comings and goings of regular customers, and the conversations between cowboys and truckers.

For that, you'll just have to go and grab a booth for yourself. Oh, and order the banana cream pie while you’re at it.

    Love Your Cafe! I have been there so many times with my parents and when I grew up, my husband and I used to stop there on our way through Idaho / Utah. We loved the foods that you prepare. Thank You for all those wonderful years and for giving my family and I all good memories. With much love from all of us, to you. God Bless You Mollie <3

    I worked there for a short while when I lived in Snowville. It was fun and the food was fabulous. The best part of the place was Mollie herself!

    I have never met Mollie, I’m sure she is a wonderful person. I have only been to Mollie’s Cafe once and will never go back. The cafe is filthy and the food is rather distasteful.
