January 2023 Business of the Month: OG Café
Ryan and April Estel are well-known and well-loved by many in Heber Valley. In 2018, their original restaurant, The Old Goat, opened on Highway 113. In 2020, the couple opened a new location, OG Café. With Ryan’s 30+ years in food and beverage, he and April were able to make one of their dreams come true when they opened their own restaurant. They had immediate success with their from-scratch and hearty menu along with slow-smoked meats. Ryan began his culinary career training under his own father at a private country club in California. From there, he has worked across the U.S. from coast-to-coast building on his chef training and career.
The Estel couple first met in high school. They reconnected years later, then married and started a family. Living in California at the time, they decided it was time to move somewhere new where they could put down roots and raise their family. The Estels discovered Heber Valley and fell in love with the natural beauty. They also wanted to be part of a community where they could get involved and give back.
Then in 2020, their friends, the Meyers, asked them to take over the coffee shop located on the corner of 600 South and Main Street in Heber City. So, in May of 2020, the Estels opened their new location, OG Café, adding a restaurant to the coffee shop. Ryan oversees the kitchen and back-of-house while April manages the business paperwork and some front-of-house needs. Their business continues to thrive at this location due to ongoing support from the local community.
The Estels love to support the local school teams and events, the Horse of Many Colors, the Wasatch County Children's Justice Center, and more throughout the community where they can. Ryan and April are also proud members of the Main Street business owners group.
For those of you who haven’t eaten at OG Café yet, plan your next breakfast, lunch, dessert, or midday “pick me up” at this great local eatery. April describes the cuisine type as classic American with a twist, including slow-smoked and house made BBQ and even some Mexican food specials. They get their beef locally from O1 Bar Ranch in Charleston, their cheese from Heber Valley Artisan Cheese, some of their spreads from Pepperlane Products, their pastries from Hungry Bunny Bakery, and their sandwich and burger bread from Stoneground Bakery. The pastrami is made in house, the burgers are ground fresh, and all food is made-to-order. The famous OG Secret Sauce is served on many of the sandwiches and burgers. And they offer most of their sandwiches and burgers as lettuce wraps for dietary restrictions and as a keto friendly option. OG Café also provides catering services and does all of the cuisine for the four-course dinner at the Nordic Yurt throughout the winter season.
OG Café has been awarded Best Café, Best Local Sandwiches, and Best Local Burgers in 2021 and 2022, and Best Country Breakfast in 2022 by Utah's Best of State awards. Some of April’s favorites include the Black and Bleu Burger for lunch and she always enjoys their spiced chai beverage. Stop by or drive through and support this local favorite!
