Three Pines Coffee Moves to Gallivan

Earlier this year, Three Pines Coffee made the leap from a coffee cart to getting counter space inside of From Scratch, the pizza, etc. place that takes its name literally. (They even grind their own flour. See?)


Nick Price and Meg Frampton—founders of Three Pines—wanted to start out small and keep their focus on making great espresso. Since the move to From Scratch, their menu has expanded a bit to include pastries and house-made almond milk.


But some standard café fare you won’t find on Three Pines’ menu: lattes and cappuccinos.

You read that right. No lattes and cappuccinos on the menu. Hipsters may be dismayed, but the focus is on quality, not trendiness.


“Our main goal is to make it as simple as possible. Those are the menus that I like to see at a restaurant,” Frampton says. “I just want a very simple menu with just a few things that are made really well.”

When ordering an espresso and milk drink at Three Pines customers just choose a size—4-, 8- or 12-ounce.


“If I go into 10 different coffee shops and ask for a cappuccino, I’m going to get 10 different beverages,” Price says. “Let’s just make it simpler. I want it to be approachable. I think there’s a lot of pretension around coffee, especially third wave specialty coffee.”

Price worked at the now defunct Handsome Roasters in LA where he first encountered a latte-less coffee menu. And it just made sense to him, Price says. Another thing Price picked up during his time at Handsome was how to be hospitable.

“If anyone is interested in specialty, third wave coffee or interested in what we’re doing, don’t be afraid to come and ask questions and talk to us,” Price says.

Friendly coffee. That’s a concept.

Here's one from our upcoming Jan/Feb issue out on stands in just a few days. We hope you’ll grab a copy and enjoy every moment of reading it.⁠

Mary photobombs Lisa Barlow at the premiere party for Real Housewives of Salt Lake. Below is a snippet from Mary's last editor's letter:⁠

"It’s all a little crazy.⁠
Sometime in 2020, the world stopped making sense for a lot of us. Between one of the ugliest election cycles the U.S. has ever been through and the most mysterious disease most of us have ever experienced, normal was canceled. We can’t get together with friends, hug our loved ones, be in the room with them when they die. But somehow we have to go on, right? Somehow we have to continue to work and love and laugh. This issue of Salt Lake magazine holds a lot of frivolity, the main one being an extremely silly TV show, The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. There I am in a pink fur coat in a car with our cover housewife, Lisa Barlow and her boys."⁠

Pick up our Jan/Feb issue at your local grocer and read the full letter. ❤️

Mary's last-minute holiday gift ideas from last year are still as true and relevant today...⁠

"The planet we live with and the creatures on it need all kinds of things. Polar bears need presents, tree frogs in the Amazon need gifts, our Utah canyons and our national parks need help."⁠

There was never a time there wasn’t Mary Malouf. Until now. Today, Mary died when a rogue wave swept her out to sea off the coast of Northern California. Only she – perhaps the world’s foremost lover of Bronte, BBC mysteries and, of course, Moby Dick – would appreciate such poetic drama.

“I know not all that may be coming, but be it what it will, I'll go to it laughing.” — Mary Brown Malouf. Ooops. Herman Mellville.
