You Can Walk To All The Best Places In Downtown Sioux Falls

A few weeks ago I spent a week in Sioux Falls, South Dakota for a fun foodie getaway with one of my favorite friends, Sommer. Sioux Falls is such a cute city with a vibrant downtown and main street filled with fun shops and restaurants. They even have a gorgeous waterfall right in the middle of their city! It was within walking distance of our hotel, the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown. If you stay downtown, you don’t even need to rent a car, you can walk pretty much everywhere. It’s the kind of place you just want to explore, get lost, and pop into every fun shop and and restaurant along the way! And every single meal we had during our weekend getaway was amazing.

Check out the fun video below for a sneak peek at our foodie week in Sioux Falls! :)

Chef Michael Hasket is famous for his crepes! We definitely had to try one. We had a savory ham, gruyere, and spinach crepe with a sunny side up egg. So delicious! All ingredients are locally sourced, and this is a restaurant you can visit again and again, any time of day, because the menu is always changing according to the freshest, highest quality ingredients available. It’s just good food from a passionate chef.

Queen City Bakery

Oh my gosh, if you only have one breakfast in Sioux Falls, make it here!! The quiche is spectacular. We were also DYING over the chocolate croissant!!! Honestly one of the best croissants I have EVER had, anywhere. If I lived in Sioux Falls I think I’d be here several times a week! The atmosphere is very relaxed, like a coffee shop, you could come here and spend the morning reading, working on a laptop, etc.  Loved Queen City Bakery!

K Restaurant

Fun spot for lunch with soup, salads, and sandwiches. I would come here with my girlfriends for lunch all the time. The menu is always changing, but the one thing that always stays on the menu is the Pot Roast Sandwich. Perfectly seasoned pot roast, gooey, melty cheese, and soft bread.. The perfect combination!! SO good!

Breadico started out as a commercial wholesale bakery for sourdough breads. They now offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner with a menu that consists of hearty sandwiches, artisan pizzas, rolls, scones, and a variety of their signature sourdough breads all baked in a wood-fired oven.

Since bread is their specialty, the crust on the pizza was AMAZING! I loved the Gruyere and Potato pizza!!
