Winery
“Experience award-winning South Dakota wines in a fun and relaxed setting. Free wine tastings with a brewery right next door. Menu items including gluten-free, vegetarian and kids' options. Patio seating with beautiful views of Black Elk Peak. What I love about this place, you can sample the wine for FREE!!! The place is family friendly although it is truly more suited for adults! Wild Bill, Calamity Jane, Red Ass Rhubarb and Gold Digger are my personal favorites. Disclaimer, I tend to favor a sweeter wine. ”

“Great breakfast and lunches. Get a sandwich and dessert bar to go before heading up Spearfish Canyon. Loved by all but a bit on the expensive side. Try the Hummus wrap with cashews and avocado. ”

Café
“If you like great coffee, look no further than Coffea. Arguably the best coffee in the state, Coffea serves up amazing roasts and creates homemade syrups for their lattes. Barista’s compete against others in regional competitions. There are three locations in town: Louise Ave (the flagship), downtown on Phillips Ave., and on the east side of town. Tip: Ask for a free espresso on Free Espresso Fridays!”
