TRU Religion in Orem is taking on breakfast! With a menu and atmosphere designed to parallel the personality of Utah County, it has quickly become one of the most popular breakfast food places in the valley. It's also the perfect place to visit during the holidays--and not just for the food.

Owners Jim and Debi Leany have taken great care to create an atmosphere like no other. They help guests feel welcome by frequently stopping at tables and making sure their meal is up to par. The restaurant is filled with Art Deco furnishings that hail from Salt Lake City's once-popular restaurant, Lamb's Grill. When dining there, you can find furnishings that have lasted through 14.5 million customers, the Great Depression and both World Wars, such as the table where Salt Lake Tribune journalists used to frequent and rambunctiously discuss current events.

At TRU Religion, the spirit of giving lasts all year long. Their motto, "TRU service is TRU religion," comes to life in their Second Chance program designed to fight local homelessness. They offer second chances to one person a year, by providing housing and employment in hopes to help the individual start a career path. You can give the gift of second chances this year by rounding your check up to the nearest dollar when you dine with them. All proceeds go to the chosen person.

Besides the warm feelings you'll get during this cold season when you give back to the community, TRU Religion also provides delicious food! Each ingredient is specially chosen from local farmers and vendors to create amazing flavors, from the fluffy omelettes to the famous cat's head biscuits. Find other great breakfast staples there, from breakfast burritos to stuffed french toast. Optional sides include hash browns, bacon, eggs, and cheese.

TRU Religion Pancake and Steakhouse in Orem, located at the Midtown 360 apartment complex, is open until 2 PM most days, but on Fridays and Saturdays you can have breakfast for dinner with your family! Whether you come for the food or the Art Deco, your family is sure to find so many reasons to love TRU Religion, especially as you join them in giving back.
