Best Restaurants in Draper
By Talyn Torres/Entertainment Editor
Everyone has their classic go-to local restaurants and we are all a bit scared to try anywhere new. There are some more obscure eating establishments nearby, though, that are definitely worth a try.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and if you want a great breakfast, one option is to go to Penny Ann’s Cafe. TheCultureTrip.com praises it, saying that “menu items are made fresh and in-house, with a decidedly homemade feel.” The pancakes are a must and they were dubbed the Best of State for Best Breakfast because of these “Heavenly Hot Cakes”. Just make sure that their incredible food doesn’t make you late for first period.
One of the best places to get sushi in the area is Water Moon. According to a reviewer on the YellowPages.com, Water Moon has “great service, food, and atmosphere” and “great sushi roll selections [that] show up looking like the photo on the menu.”
Another good choice for all your sushi needs is The Garage Grill. Julia Prusak, a parent of a student attending Corner Canyon, says that this grill has “great appetizers, a fun atmosphere, and fresh sushi made to order by talented sushi chefs.” If you are not in the mood for raw fish, though, this restaurant has a diverse menu with plenty of other choices to cater to any craving.
Even Stevens Sandwiches has also been garnering a lot of popularity lately. Their sandwiches are decked-out and to-die-for. And, “for every sandwich purchased the company donates a sandwich to a local charity”. (HappyCow.net) How could you get any better than that?
For freshly baked goods, try Food For Thought. According to TheCultureTrip.com, “this cafe and bakery has the feeling of a boutique sweet shop. The bakery cooks up homemade pastries, cakes, and confections, and for special occasions and holidays, makes cute, kitschy sugar cookies in fun shapes with brightly piped frostings.”
There are also new, unproven dessert shops popping up all over Draper. Among them is Last Course, City Cakes and Cafe, and Donut Star. Old classics like Leatherby’s, Beyond Glaze, and U-Swirl are still great choices to sate one’s sweet tooth, however.
No matter what your in the mood for, it isn’t difficult to find a great place to eat in our lovely little foodie hub. So, go ahead and try something new, who knows, you just might stumble upon your new favorite restaurant.

As high school students, our lives are packed with homework, sports, jobs, and our social lives. For almost all high school students deal with huge amounts of stress everyday, and a lot of that stress is caused from all of our daily activities and responsibilities. Here is an excerpt from a stress level study on theatlantic.com By Alexandra Ossola, “ The researchers surveyed and interviewed 128 students, teachers, and administrators about students’ stress levels and coping strategies. They found that 49 percent of students reported feeling “a great deal of stress” on a daily basis. Half reported doing three or more hours of homework per night, and 26 percent noted that they had been diagnosed with depression—over four times the national average of 6 percent.”
Some foods can help your stress to decrease, here are a few of them:
I am a Junior, I am a thrower on the track and field team, I've read the Maze Runner series at least 18 times, and, I don't know....I like food.
Likes: rock music (with the exception of the Backstreet Boys and NSYNC), the aquarium, tea, and going to the movie theater.
Dislikes: pickles, walking in the snow, running, and haunted houses.
