Location & Environment
Saltbox Eatery & Catering is located in Prospector Square on Main Street in downtown Park City. The exterior of the building matches the contemporary decor of the interior. The facade is partially red brick, with vertical, painted wood shingles around the front entrance. Inside, clean, sleek lines outline the granite-colored countertops that could just as easily be soapstone as cement. Suffice it to say that there is a clean but welcoming feel to the place. A big, sunny front window overlooks Main Street, and the paved, expansive outdoor dining space of Prospector Square.
If you choose to eat al fresco, you’ll be happy to dine in a primarily bug-free environment. Even though you’re outdoors, the atmosphere is clean and fresh, just like the menu at Saltbox. Wide umbrellas offer shelter from the occasional drizzle of rain, while lush green trees create dappled sunshine and shade on the pavement below. This is a great place to grab a coffee and pastry from Saltbox, then sit outdoors with your book, laptop or best friend.
Indoors, customers will appreciate some of the most comfortable seats, including a suede-covered sofa and coffee table and a soft lounge chair.
Saltbox is around the corner from the Park Regency Resort, making it a popular spot for Park City tourists. There’s a large, free parking lot on Prospector Avenue. Then, a short walk around the corner brings you into the welcoming environment of Saltbox. Park City Mountain is nearby, and it’s very common for Saltbox to be the destination for skiers and snowboarders either on route to the mountain or just back from it. Saltbox is open from 8AM to 4PM Monday through Thursday and until 8:30 PM on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
In-house, the tastiest breakfast and lunch sandwiches include a potato egg sandwich that will keep you full for hours.

Saltbox also offers these cool things they call Meal Packs. These are to-go dinners for families that you can order online, pick up and heat up at home. The meal packs can feed up to four individuals and are awesome for those who want to come back to their ski chateau and have a heat-up meal ready to eat. Meal packs range from shrimp scampi skewers to chicken parmesan, to tomatillo chicken enchiladas to blackened salmon jambalaya. The chili lime roasted chicken is especially ideal for those with a big appetite.
