“Great Part of the Little House on the Prairie Experience”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

If you are doing DeSmet you are probably doing the Little House on the Prairie thing and if so, don't miss Ward's. It has been in the same family for decades and makes great food, pastries, and coffee. Check out the specials as they are usually a home run. They also carry gifts and clothing.

“Perfect for our family”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We enjoyed the food and atmosphere! Plenty on the menu to please all ages (we had 6-77) and friendly staff as well. It was nice to look around the store while we waited for our food. The desserts from the bakery were delicious and we bought fresh baked rolls to take with us.

“Call Ahead to Confirm Hours”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Call ahead to get food service hours because they do not appear to be consistent or to follow what is in print. Reviews here intrigued us but they closed 2.5 hours ahead of what was in print...very disappointing.

“Worth a stop”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Store and bakery/cafe. Great pastries. Locally made gift items. Home cooked lunch was great. Full service coffee bar. And they serve discount lunches to local seniors during the week - sort of the small town Meals on Wheels but with a social aspect. Family owned, we saw at least three generations. The youngest was a tween or so and super friendly and happy to be there.

“Just What We Were Looking for in De Smet!”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

We visited Ward's Store and Bakery twice during a recent trip to De Smet. It was just what we were looking for - great food, great service, and a small town atmosphere. When we first visited, there were many locals eating there, which is always a good sign. The prices were very reasonable, and it is conveniently located within walking distance of most attractions in De Smet.
