Favorite Breakfast spot in Sioux Falls

My friends and I love going here every time we spend the weekend in Sioux Falls. They have wonderful breakfast and good service. Bottomless mimosas on Sunday afternoons is amazing! Along with their outdoor patio it makes for a great Sunday brunch.

We were there last Friday evening and sat on the outdoor patio. The service was great and the request for a hot hamburger plate instead of hot beef was granted. The meals were all good. The fun busyness of downtown Sioux Falls was fun to view right off the patio.

Looking for a quick place to eat breakfast after a night spent in Sioux Falls and stumbled upon Philips Avenue Diner. Breakfast was cooked to order. Delicious banana bread French toast. Wait staff lovely. We are from the east coast land of diners and this one did not disappoint.

We enjoyed our breakfast at this diner. The counter reminded me of " the old days". We chose, though to sit in a booth. Old black and white photos of the area were hanging on the walls throughout; a nice visual history of the town. We ordered the eggs Benedict and the spinach & mushroom omelette. They were delicious.

Very friendly staff and great service is what you will find at Phillips. I have been here for breakfast and lunch, both are very good. Short easy walk from downtown hotels. Also enjoy the sculptures along the way.

There was a wait for a table the Sunday morning we stopped in, so we agreed to sit at the counter since there was no wait for those seats. This was just fine. I ordered the poutine, my husband had the B&G platter. It was all delicious and served by a friendly young man. With juice and coffee we had... More

Family dinner here was great! American food, good quality, family-friendly atmosphere. Beer list could've used some help - a lot of Michelob and Bud Light going on there. Otherwise, a terrific restaurant!

I love old diners and try to get my husband to try them when we find them on our travels. This is Cadillac version diner, wood trim booths and tables as well as counter seating. There is a bakery case and coffee bar at the entrance and you're promptly greeted and shown to your choice of seating. My go to... More
