OGDEN — If you’ve been dreading the cold Utah winters, chances are you may have turned to your favorite homestyle foods.

Chicken noodle soup, a turkey sandwich with mayo and cheese, or maybe a fresh cinnamon roll: You’ll find all of these simple comfort foods and more at Old Grist Mill Bread Company, a local chain of five eateries located throughout northern Utah.

For Ogden residents, the closest location to get your fix of soup, sandwiches and much more can be found just off 2nd Street and Washington Boulevard. Those who live elsewhere can get their fix at locations in Logan, Brigham City and Kaysville.

Patrons who grace the Mill’s doors are greeted by tear-off cards where orders are placed. Circle a type of combination meal you’d like and you’re off and running. Choose a full-sandwich or half-sandwich, with a cup or bowl of soup — or a bag of potato chips — as your side dish.

Customize your sandwich with your choice of meat, cheese, spread and veggies.

If cold sandwiches aren’t your cup of tea, try one of their grilled sandwiches. Old Grist Mill offers a number of hot sandwiches, which include their Philly, BLT, and a Chicken Cordon Bleu, just to name a few.

Are the kids picky eaters? A grilled cheese sandwich is sure to satisfy, paired with a warm bowl of tomato basil soup. You can even have your own version of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich made fresh, complete with your choice of bread.

The soup at Old Grist Mill is always a good option to soothe a soul made cold by the winter months. Depending on the day, patrons can pick up chili, clam chowder, tomato ravioli or other specialties. Chicken noodle, cream of potato, and vegetable beef are always available to warm those who need it.

For a quicker bite to eat, grab a muffin, bagel or a sugar-dusted scone to get a simple, wholesome treat.

If you’re ordering food for the whole office, Old Grist Mill offers soup by the quart, available for pick up. Print out some order forms ahead of time to make ordering for a group easier, so everyone can make sure to get exactly what they want.

Finish off your meal with one (or more) of their tasty deserts. Whether you’re in the mood for a cinnamon roll, a cookie, or maybe even a brownie, you’ll find a treat for any type of sweet tooth.

Looking to have the goodness of Old Grist Mill’s homemade bread in your home? Stop by to pick up loaf or two of the bakery’s signature breads. Sourdough, cinnamon raisin, and cheesy potato bread are just a few of the many types available to enjoy in the comfort of your own home.

If you need something to spread on those pieces of bread, jam from Weeks Berries of Paradise is available for sale in the Ogden store and conveniently located next to the bread rack. The Cache County-based company has been serving their spreads and jams for more than 40 years.

Whether you’re craving a simple, homemade sandwich or in need of a warm, savory soup to scare away the cold, Old Grist Mill is sure to please anyone and everyone.
