In the lobby of 820 Park Avenue Condominiums on Main Street, Harvest Park City is now serving platters of health and happiness. With authentic Australian cuisine, Harvest has taken Park City by storm with its holistic epicurean approach to food and coffee. Serving fresh ingredients, top quality coffee, and a community-centered atmosphere, it’s no wonder Main Street’s newest cafe has exploded in popularity.
The Harvest Story: Two Friends and Two Chefs
“A few years ago, owner Emma Worsley and I were just good friends looking for a place in Park City on a weekend morning have breakfast. We wanted both great food and coffee,” said General Manager, Karen Mertenf. “As a chef and an Australian, Emma knows what she’s looking for in food and coffee, and we just couldn’t find any place that had both. It was always one or the other. Already highly experienced in the restaurant business, Emma knew she’d found a niche that was begging to be filled. She enlisted fellow chef, Carlo Campana and together they created Harvest. It began as Emma’s personal passion, and then just blossomed into this amazing space where people come for the food, coffee, and conversation.”
A Menu from Down Under
Harvest offers a wide range of delectable dishes influenced by authentic Australian cuisine. Serving breakfast and lunch seven days a week, the Emma and Carlo wanted to offer Parkites a healthy menu that covered a family Sunday brunch, post-bike ride meeting spot, or a business lunch. While the menu is simple, it is always a daunting task to choose your first dish and for that, the owners have some recommendations! “Emma and I went on a girls road trip a few years ago. We wanted to stay away from roadside diners, so and she invented Buddha Bowls: Brown rice, pumpkin puree, oven roasted tomato, fermented cabbage, pickled onion, hard boiled egg, herb ricotta, avocado, seeds, nuts and miso ginger dressing. One of delicious bowls for lunch satisfied us for the whole day. When we opened Harvest, we put them on the menu, and they are still my favorite!” said Karen. The most popular items on the menu are the Acai Bowl and the Smashed Avocado, but absolutely every dish is a beautiful and delicious!
Emma, and Carlo are Parkites through and through so they understand the importance of nurturing a tight knit community. “We built Harvest keeping in the community in mind. When you come in, you are shoulder to shoulder with your friends and family. We aren’t a fine dining restaurant, we are a community restaurant.” said Karen, with an air of pride in her voice.
From CMFH to Harvest, we send our best wishes and can not wait to see what the future has in store for this amazing establishment. From our family to yours, we will see you after your morning bike ride with a cup of coffee in our hands and a Buddha Bowl in front of you.
