“Thank God! An oasis!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

A real bakery and coffee shop in the middle of nowhere Sioux Falls! It is great to have a little New York in this town. A great place for a snack, coffee, and some work or chatting if that's your thing. Love this place!

“Love their baked goods!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014 via mobile

We love the double chocolate cookies and almost every thing else. Love the new location. Great service. Just two issues: several times the selection has been extremely limited, even at mid-day. And, some of the servers handle cash and the pastries without using tissues or gloves.

“recommended by friends”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

This bakery is hard too find but worth it. Met friends there and enjoyed the ambiance. We had a scone and a croissant. Both were great. Our lattes were just warm. Would have liked them hot. It's a very popular place.

“A gem in Sioux Falls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

It really is fantastic! Peanut Butter chocolate gram cracker square thing is my favorite! The owners seem really cool too and you can tell they put a lot of effort in it to make it worthwhile. Clientele add to it's already nice vibe.

Because I do so love this place, I do want to address a couple of the concerns noted in the only poor reviews. I will agree I am actually not a fan of the cookies. That said though, it's a minor "flaw" (even if a cookie isn't amazing, it's still a cookie) amongst numerous other things that are incredible. The cake, the squares, the quiche, etc ahhh! So good!
In terms of the hours, it would be nicer if they had more hours, but for a place like this, you work around it when you want to go. Adds to the flavor too in an odd way. Shelves are empty? Might have been a busy day. It's one of the most popular spots in town.
My *only* "complaint" is that I actually kind of did like the older location a little better (the one pictured). It was smaller but being multi-level gave it a better vibe. Just my opinion. New location is still fantastic and very worth visiting!
