We’ve been talking a lot about the future of Main Street in downtown Salt Lake City. But do you ever think about Main Street south of 400 S.? City Cast Salt Lake lead producer Emily Means recently toured it by bike and shares some recommendations for exploring the route.
One fine Saturday afternoon in September, I went on a mini, critical mass bike ride down Main Street with local advocacy organization Sweet Streets. What I noticed were restaurants, shops, and parks that I had never seen before — because I usually drive down State Street to get where I’m going.
🎨 SeiterArt Gallery features works by local artist Lynette Seiter. One reviewer called it a “beautiful hidden gem.”
🍻 Second Summit Cider is a new-ish cidery in town. Their cider is delicious (the City Cast team would know — we partnered with Second Summit on a special 801 Day cider!), but the onsite pickleball courts are a huge draw, too.
🧗 One time I went to The Front Climbing Gym with a friend, and I got stuck on the rock wall because I’m scared of heights 🤷🏻♀️But that was at a different location, so maybe I’ll have better luck at this one on Main Street.

🍳 Has anyone been to Cafe on Main? It seems like such a quaint spot for Balkan cuisine and breakfast foods. What do you recommend on the menu?
🥪 One of City Cast Salt Lake producer Ivana Martinez’s favorite sandwich shops is Grove Market. She’s not alone, because the last time I went during lunch time, the sandwich line stretched through the whole shop. They also have a huge selection of hot sauces.
So, what do you say? Wanna try biking down Main? You might be surprised by what you discover.
