People Drive From All Over For The Pancakes At This Charming South Dakota Cafe
They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so you may wonder which breakfast food is best for you. No, it isn’t eggs, yogurt, or oatmeal but rather the fluffy sweetness that is the pancake. While you could go to a generic chain restaurant to get your fill of this delicious cuisine, we highly recommend visiting this charming South Dakota restaurant that serves some of the best ‘cakes in the state:
Tucked away in legendary Lead is the equally legendary Cheyenne Crossing, which is one of the oldest and most beloved restaurants in the state.
Established as a stagecoach stop in 1878, Cheyenne Crossing is now an award-winning restaurant that welcomes guests from both near and far on a daily basis.
Once you taste the food and experience the hospitality, you will be back for seconds!
While the restaurant is revered for its Indian fry bread, there is one other dish that we cannot get enough of, which is, of course...
...Cheyenne Crossing's dreamy sourdough pancakes.
Whether you opt for a plain sourdough pancake or dress it up with fresh strawberries and whipped cream, you are guaranteed to find your new favorite pancake at this South Dakota institution!
In addition to the pancakes and Indian fry bread, Cheyenne Crossing serves a number of other made-from-scratch breakfast, lunch, and dinner options, meaning you may want to visit often to try it all.
