I work at home in Helper, but I have to head down and hang out at Happiness Within at least 2x per week to partake in their excellent coffee and specialty drinks and pastries. It is a treat to have such a great coffee place with fast internet and friendly, hip people in our small town. It's a great place to catch up on local news and chat with friends and travelers passing through. It's also impeccably clean - a nice respite on the hot and dusty trail between Moab and SLC. And I wouldn't survive the cold winters if I was "without" Happiness Within. I'm here now having an espresso and a biscotti! : )
Sooooo overpriced!!!! $5.75 for a 12oz. latte is just too much. Beautiful space. Cozy and nice, but very limited bakery items and just couldn't handle the price. I got one of their seasonal specials, but I couldn't taste most of the flavors. Very disappointing especially with all the fantastic reviews on here.
Great coffee, great little coffee shop with 2 pleasant, accommodating young ladies providing the coffee. Worth a stop if in the sea.

This place is such a gem! On the long drive between climbing destinations, this was a welcome respite. The food was great (definitely recommend the chips) and the beer mugs were tall and cold. What else could you ask for? I'm looking forward to visiting again next time I'm passing through!
It's okay compared to any other place in the county. It might be a 4 star for the area. I've been there a few times and each time is passable. I hope that doesn't sound too rude but I'm not sure how else to put it. I haven't really found a favorite on the menu so you might want to explore. Last time I was there I had the Turkey Club. It's more of a turkey melt than a club. No lettuce and tomato. Not as healthy as I wanted but good flavor, and a bit greasy. A little heavy for my taste but the bread was buttered nicely, which was a plus. The fries are homemade but were kind of hard, like if they were reheated. Otherwise I think they would have been great. They do serve breakfast all day so I'd like to try that. The people working there were friendly.
By far the best place I've eaten at outside the Salt Lake City Valley in Utah! This place has some very creative and delicious sandwiches. Burgers and even entrees for grown ups. When I came in to this establishment our group had already eaten breakfast so lunch was on our minds but all the surrounding tables had groups just finishing their breakfast. A quick glimpse at their plates had me really wishing we were a couple of hours early because this place had a breakfast that looked more delicious than perhaps anything I've ever paid someone to make me for breakfast. Helper is a small town with a lot if history and including one of the last working brothels in Utah and as well a place that Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid have been known to frequent. The town as a whole really has potential that could really shine as a gem to the state if the right talent give it the attention. Balance Rock Cafe is great and on it's own produces good enough food that should be reason enough for folks from Provo and SLC to make a trip over to Helper. If I lived in Utah this would be one of those places I'd really push on people to try.

Traveling from Salt Lake City to Moab, Utah, we discovered this gem off Route 6. We're so glad the Garmin had this restaurant listed. It is like eating at home. The staff and personnel (chef and waitress) add to the hometown flavor. The homemade scones were to die for!
Wow! Read all the great reviews and gave it a try. $5.25 for a 12 oz. latte!!! Beautiful interior just thought it was really pricey! So so on friendliness. Sounded so good in the reviews but didn't live up to the reviews.
BEST BREAKFAST IN THE STATE OF UTAH! I consider myself a food addict we've traveled across the state always eating at a new restaurant for breakfast. Marshas Sammich Shop is not only a place for great breakfast but also a place where you meet great people. The staff are always friendly and good people all around.

Reviews:
enough things went wrong here on our last visit that I felt I needed to update. We chose to come here for a special dinner out and by the end we were both so disappointed. We ordered chicken dishes but different ones. Both had very dry chicken breasts. Mine was a Mexican dish, covered with a sauce and was to be topped with pepper jack cheese, only instead they chose to use Swiss cheese because they were out of the other. Now someone else may think Swiss goes well with Mexican but for me the flavors just don't work and to know this was done on purpose and not an accident seems to make it worse. For dessert there were only 2 choices and I picked the blueberry creme brûlée, only to find out that it wasn't blueberry at all but blackberries. There just seemed to be enough confusion going on that I felt the need to do my update here. The potato was fine, the steamed vegetables, soup, salad and small bit of bread were all fine, nothing bad and nothing remarkable, but the dry chicken with the wrong topping and the dessert that did not have the correct item that I was told it did made it disappointing especially when it was a special night out. The chicken to us appeared to be most likely a frozen pre-cooked breast that was heated up for too long. They are now open Weds thru Saturday only.
