After driving to the Toquerville Falls this week, our family wanted to find a place to enjoy breakfast. I looked up breakfast locations near the road to the Toquerville Falls and came across a wonderful surprise in La Verkin, Utah. Several people have posted reviews about the River Rock Roasting Company and so we chose to have breakfast here. We love the place!
The River Rock Roasting Company sits on the edge of a canyon overlooking the Virgin River. You can sit inside the café or you can sit outside on upper deck or lower seating area and enjoy the views. River Rock is located at 394 South Main Street in La Verkin, Utah. La Verkin is approximately 20 miles from St. George. You can reach La Verkin by driving south from Toquerville or heading north from Hurricane in Southern Utah.
The River Rock Roasting Company has an extensive bakery with baked goods made from fresh ingredients, locally grown when available, and baked from scratch daily. We were interested in breakfast and were delighted to read the menu which had bagel sandwiches, wraps, croissants, scones, cinnamon rolls, sandwiches, paninis, sticky buns, muffins, bread pudding and quiche blossoms (that everybody seemed to be ordering).
The roasting company menu had a huge variety of fresh roasted coffee items, espresso drinks and beer, as well. The place was busy, but the wait wasn’t bad at all. Our group selected a bagel sandwich, scones, grilled cheese, and a croissant. We also shared a huge cinnamon roll that was delicious and disappeared quickly.
The River Rock Roasting Company received the St. George Spectrum Excellence in Customer Service Award in 2017. I would definitely recommend the River Rock Roasting Company to anyone. You can drop by on your way to Zion National Park or take a fun drive to La Verkin, Utah and enjoy a delicious breakfast or lunch in a unique, fun setting overlooking a deep canyon with the Virgin River running through it.
