We stopped in the Hill City Cafe for a mid day club sandwich which we enjoyed very much. Then we returned later for a cup of coffee after a train ride on the 1880 train. Our server was very helpful and friendly. Nice place, cool pictures on the walls.

I like diner food, so I thought I would give this a shot. First of all, the food is decent. Didn't change my world. The service, however, was beyond bad. A soda refill took 10 minutes and it took FIFTEEN minutes for them to take my payment and bring back the credit card slip to sign. Avoid this place unless... More

We went most mornings and the food is great. The staff made us feel like we were home. The cafe is a wonderful example of Dakota friendship! Laughter and teasing are priceless.

This cafe has been in business at this location for 100 years. It was remodeled in early 2014 and is a wonderful place for breakfast! I had the meat lovers omelette and it had meat and cheese in every bite, no running out and having just egg at the edges. The coffee was good and the service very friendly. Will... More

Still waiting for the onion I requested when ordering and then requested again when food arrived, if it had not been for oniongate the food would have been ok! I did go up to the salad bar to see if I could sneakily take some onion but no onion, perhaps onion is illegal In hill city. The cafe does seen... More

Pleased with our experience here. Would recommend this place to eat if you are in Hill City. We ate dinner late it was 8 or after...and it was hard to find a place that was still open. We ate here an hour before close the quality of the food was very good. Waitress was friendly and attentive. We had the... More

We walked into the cafe on the first snowy day of the season and the place was packed...always a good sign. Only one waitress was working (the other hadn't arrived, yet) but we were seated promptly and served coffee and tea. Our order was taken and our food arrived quickly. The menu included standard breakfast fare. When it arrived it... More

Walked in and already had a kind of ehhh feeling about the place but I was only there for a quick breakfast to start the day. I wasn't really greeted just told to sit anywhere. No water was brought to my table to begin with. I asked for coffee to start and sat there for about ten minutes I'd say... More

We got there about an hour before closing and they had already started cleaning. We ordered the buffet but most of the food looked like it should have been stirred and had been sitting out for some time. The Ribs were good but the rest of the food looked unappetizing. The buffet was sitting in another room and they were... More
