What a nice find. We were in town for a Y football game and found this diner at the south end of town on University. Will go back. Had the Philly Steak, with a side of beans that was actually great hand made chili. The whole meal was made from scratch. Nice food, nice environment. Reasonable pricing. Great alternative to...

Was looking for a place that was not "fast food". Great food. All homemade. Delicious mushroom soup. Offered a half price menu if you wanted smaller portions of several items. Totally enjoyed our visit!

Stopped for breakfast at this quaint little diner off University Avenue. We had a little bit of a wait time...the place was hopping. We had french toast and the works omelette. Very tasty. The service was good and the food was great.

We have been to Cafe 300 several times. We tried the roast beef this time. It was so good. The roast was tender. The carrots were cooked with the roast and were just amazing. I hope we can catch that special again. The server was very friendly as well. Great place for a date.

The place looks a bit dingy. It is in an old Wingers building. Our waitress was very pleasant and prompt. Right on a busy road.

Hubby and I travel through Provo twice a month. Tonight was our second visit to Cafe 300. Restaurant is very clean and service friendly. Food is very good and the menu offers many sandwiches, salads and comfort style food entrees. Turkey and Tri Tip were excellent. We had a burger and fries tonight which were fresh made. We will definitely... More

Coming through town, from the nice dog park, we stopped nearby after finding Cafe 300 recommended by Tripadvisor. We both had the veggie omelette (sorry for the duplication but we needed our veggies). We asked to have the potatoes well done (7 times out of ten, they don't). The potatoes were great as were all the fresh ingredients in the... More

Holy moly! The onion rings! Ya gotta get them! The pulled pork sandwich and the club sandwich were both hits in our opinion. The place was a little dirty though. They need to be better at keeping their tables bussed. It would help if they had a couple more people working. There was only one waitress for the entire place.... More

Most of the Provo restaurants are closed on Sunday, but found this authentic diner on my way into town. Great BBQ (I am from NC so I don't throw this complement easily) and a Reuben that runs neck-n-neck with my favorite NYC deli. A gumbo that took my back to the French Quarter. Fantastic family-run diner!

The absolute worst restaurant experience I have ever had. I went there on 5/7/16, the day before Mother's Day, to have lunch with my family. The place wasn't busy, maybe 5 other tables in the entire building were occupied. We had a large group, 7 adults and 3 children. We waited for at least 30 minutes before our order was... More
