Good food, but YEEEEOOUCH! ON the price!

I happened to be in Hill City for breakfast last week, and thought I'd stop by the Hill City Cafe. My grandparents used to go there like a million years ago. Anyway, the atmosphere was nice, the staff were nice, and my food was good, but really! 14 bucks for a breakfast? that was eggs, hashbrowns... read more

For a small cafe the food was great. I wish we would have tried it sooner than our last day there. For as busy as they were the wait was not bad. My wife had a club sandwich and fries and I had a burger and fries. They were both awesome, highly recommend!

Biscuits and gravy were to die for! Wish I had more though. Coffee was plentiful and well brewed. Prices were fair, but seemed high for the serving amount. I will still come back and eat those awesome B&G though, but will splurge a bit for a double order, haha.

Eating here is like stepping back to a 50s grill which is not a compliment. Although our meals were hard, black flies definitely destroyed what little atmosphere it has. seriously wondered about kitchen cleanliness

Stopped by late in the day during Sturgis and walked right in with a group of 6 adults. The service was good with very good food and plenty of it.

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.
