Shop and Dine in the Eclectic Sugar House Neighborhood

An easy drive from our American Fork apartments is an eclectic neighborhood featuring mom-and-pop shops and new gastropubs that delight the taste buds.

We're talking about Sugar House, and it got its name during the pioneer days when the area's soil was ideal for growing and cultivating sugar beets. Highlights include:

Central Book Exchange

With over 90,000 books, it's no wonder that the Central Book Exchange is one of the most popular bookstores in town. The shop brings in over 1,000 books each week and offers nearly every genre from the classics to westerns. The staff is both friendly and knowledgeable, and they enjoy helping readers discover new authors. If you have unwanted books, the shop offers an exchange program that provides discounts on other titles in the store.  

Hidden Hollow

Offering a tranquil escape, Hidden Hollow is a thriving urban area and outdoor classroom. Towering trees, native vegetation, and a babbling creek surround the paved paths for a scenic adventure. Hikers looking for a longer walk can connect to Sugar House Park, featuring 110 acres of rolling hills. 

Dodo Restaurant

A local favorite since 1981, Dodo is a neighborhood gathering place with a casual, upscale setting. The restaurant offers fabulous views of the Wasatch Mountain Range, and several televisions show the latest game. In the kitchen, the chefs make the menu from the finest, freshest ingredients. They prepare everything from scratch and are famous for their barbecue sauce and award-winning desserts. Meals include pulled pork quesadillas, house-smoked baby back ribs, and blueberry Parmesan halibut.
