Best Breakfast in Hill City.

Large portions, friendly staff. Heavy on the "Family atmosphere". Good place, and reasonable. Parking was at a premium, Cafe is right in the middle of town, so easy shopping while walking to cafe.

Good breakfast spot in Hill City. Service is a little slow, but the food is good and there's a decent variety on the menu. The breakfast buffet was well stocked and even had a decent fruit bar. The floor's a bit uneven in the back, so be careful if you're heading for the bathroom.

This was a quaint little cafe. The food was good, and service was even better. We enjoyed eating there.

We were exhausted from traveling but ate like we were starving. Fast service and good food. Prices were very reasonable.

We were starving... very busy place so plan on taking extra time. The food was a little pricy for the quality. We ordered chicken fried steak... sadly it was under seasoned and the meat was tough. The gravy was very bland and would probably not eat here again. On the plus side the servers were very nice!

I would classify this place as a hole in the wall diner, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. We ate here twice on our trip to Hill City. The first time two in our party had the buffet. It had a decent selection and was well stocked. Our waitress was attentive and checked back often. The second time was a... More

We went here for breakfast during our stay in the area. We got there a bit before the rush, got a table and put in our order. And waited. And waited. And waited. People who had their order taken after ours got their food before ours. Hmm. I flagged down the waitress, who was obviously flustered. We got most of... More

I had walked past Hill City Cafe while I was walking around Hill City. I decided that we had to stop and try it. On our last night in Hill City it was starting to get late, maybe 7 ish and we still hadn't stopped for dinner. I insisted we stop here, and we were not disappointed. Heck, this was... More
