REVIEWS OF Baker's Bakery & Café IN South Dakota

Amber Rieger

Fantastic find!! We stumbled across thid place and are so glad we did! We weren't expecting much from the outside, but we were very impressed!!! They were able to accommodate our group of 11 - and quickly at that. The food was ready quickly and it was delicious!! Also, it has gluten free options which was so nice for me! The portions were large as well. Another good option is to turn the wraps into a bowl, which a few of us did. Our waiter was friendly, helpful, and fast! Probably one of our favorite places we've eaten at during all our trips to the Black Hills!!

Scott glover

Very tasty breakfast. Fast service. Attentive waiter. Large portions. I considered asking for a to-go box to take my breakfast left overs with me. I also had the gluten free toast. Yum

jeff venable

Another great place to stop in Custer. They are more than a coffee house our pastry shop. They have full breakfast and lunch. But don’t skip the amazing pastry. Not a large store, but they do an excellent job. They seemed a bit uptight about getting you seated and not allowing you to explore, but were friendly if you followed their system. I loved the peanut stack. Shared it for desert. Wonderful choice. Right in the heart of the tourist section. Another place worth stopping

José Roberto Villanueva Montes

I loved eating here

Matthew Stanley

Toby Aberle

This place is awefull. They have foreign waiters that where rude and disrespectful to my uncle for wearing a American Patrot Hat This place has the worst service. They treat two veterans with total disrespect. If you call yourself a American stay away.


Really great breakfast. The sticky buns are terrific. So many doughnuts Had a great egg and cheese sandwich.

After basically being told to leave from another breakfast spot we found this. Fast friendly service and great food. Thank you for a great breakfast.

Zachary Pendroy

Nancy Smith

Delicious sandwich, buffalo burger & hamburger

Scott Windham

Food was amazing and our server who's name is Lauren was awesome. I'd recommend sitting at her table if you can.

Bertina Dillon

It was great! The food was wonderful, the staff was very friendly, and the atmosphere was pleasing.


Food was ok, prices are good though. When i got my "Rachael Ray inspired breakfast burrito" i expected the cheese to be melted but it seemed the burritos are pre-made and heated up a little bit...wasn't to impressed.


Great food and donuts

R P Stewart

Wow tasty frisbee size cinnamon buns

John Fitzgerald

About the same quality burger as the more famous place nearby, but a little higher priced. Very good apple fritters.

Dan Beitzel

Great food and service. We were in Custer for three days and ate here twice. Caramel rolls are amazing!

Diane Hughes

Great little place.We came here for breakfast and everything was very good. Our waitress was very friendly and brought us everything quickly. Their donuts and bakery items looked fantastic but we did not have them as our portions from breakfast was huge. I would definitely recommend eating at this restaurant.

Michael Harrison

Would have given 5 stars but... Went in for breakfast and the service and food was excellent. Saw on their board that they sell loaves of bread. Went back a few days later to get some local bread. Circled the block three times to get a parking space. Went in only to be told that they only bake enough for the cafe. Why is "loaf of bread" on the price board?!

juan macias

Great food! Awesome service. The green chili breakfast burrito is a definite try. The donuts and pastries are delicious as well

pat mac

Nice location, friendly staff. We picked up a few pastries, roll and coffee. Ate outside. Beautiful. The food was okay, roll and turnover still a bit frozen and the coffee was tolerable... all in all, a decent place for a dougnut and coffee.

Janna Glaze

Good service and good coffee - tons of sweets.

Erin Johnson

We had an amazing experience. We went here on a whim and were seated quickly even though they seemed packed. Our waiter Lauren came and was fantastic. Even though we could tell she was busy she made sure we were well taken care of. Highly recommend and Lauren you were FANTASTIC!!!

anna pizzolo

well we didn't have the breakfast but the bakery was awesome they have huge cinnamon rolls and butter pecan rolls as soon as you walk through the door so they're almost irresistible since it's the first thing you see.

Gill Owens

Lovely unlimited coffee and delicious doughnuts. Great service and good atmosphere. Would visit again

Tammy McDonald

Greeted promptly as we walked in. Water was brought before we even settled into the booth and coffee immediately after that! Service was friendly and food came out fast. Maybe because we were here early (6:30) but my coffee was never empty, Loray (sorry if I misspelled that)I was very attentive. Bakery items are made here and the Apple fritter is fabulous! I got avocado toast which was delicious. Fresh avocado and egg cooked to perfection. The fresh fruit was actually quite fresh

Jodi Morris

Absolutely love stopping here every August! To get there baked goods !! If your from out of town and in the area you must stop here!!!

JP Snides

Too bad they didn't want our business. They ratings and reviews rave about their food, but the rude hostess didn't want to serve us. We came in at 10:45 on a Sunday morning, and we were the only ones waiting for a table. Tables were full, but no one else waiting. Hostess said they probably would not be able to serve us breakfast, (apparently they stop serving breakfast at 11) and asked if we wanted to take our chances. We informed her that we were looking for breakfast. She said they don't serve breakfast after 11. I reminded her it was only 10:45. She was very rude in her demeanor and said again that we prob wouldn't get breakfast. I asked if it was a hard and fast rule, and again reminded her that it was only 10:45. She then walked away from us. We promptly left, realising she didn't want our business. I would hope that it was not a racial thing, as our party was mixed, but it was very obvious that she did not care for our business. We went to the Begging Burrito Mexican Bistro a couple of doors down and were welcomed with open arms, even though they were not officially open for another ten minutes.

Travis Mills

Good food

Erica Taylor

We were in Custer for a week on vacation, stopped by the Baker's Bakery & cafe several times, but the hours vary so only got in once. We got seated, and the waitress proceeded to give the list of items the were not available, including breakfast. So we left. She then said I don't know why they came in. The sign on there door said breakfast so that's why we went in. Definitely wouldn't recommend. Walked down the street to Burger and Bun Co. fantastic experience there and 100% recommend. Everything was available. People were very nice.

Veronica Peters

We loved this place so much when we were on vacation out west, we visited twice. The staff is amazing, Lauren (our first waitress) made special accommodations to ensure we had a great breakfast. My daughter wanted the avocado toast, but only likes boiled eggs.....Lauren ensured her toast just had avocado, tomato, and a boiled egg on the side! We also had doughnuts, burritos, omelets, and a breakfast sandwich. If you eat here for won't even feel hunger till dinner time!

Jesse Temme

Great food great service.

Ty Davis

Very good donuts

Thomas Hull

Cristian Moreno

Breakfast options are very tasty, high quality and hand made style: like eating at home! You can be sure you will be very satisfied with their generous plates. Fast and kind service!

Amelia Hayden

I love there biscuits and gravy evan there big cinniman rolls

Sherry Gray

Baker's was recommended by the campground owner. So we went for breakfast. The Western omelette was a shared plate and quite enough food. The guys had breakfast burrito with green chili and loved it. The portions are generous. Four stars are given because the coffee was quite bitter and the refills/bringing our ticket to leave were too slow.

Jamesp McDaniel

Great Burgers and great crisp onion rings. Good service. I will come back.

bernie baker

Made it just in time for breakfast! And it was great. We will come back on our next visit.

Janet L Nuckles

One of the best breakfasts in Custer. Their breakfasts and lunches are varied and the staff is great. My only problem is walking by the pastry case! All the bread and sandwich buns are made in house. Can't say enough about this place!

Karrie Romero

Great place for breakfast very friendly staff yes we would go back!

Casey Oakley

Best breakfast spot in town. Hands down.

Derek Isaak

Food was good, but, not impressed with our server at all.... Never have I ever had to ask for more coffee or tea...

Robin Lawler

The staff here is what's service should be. They are friendly, fast, and helpful with recommendations. Ate here 2 mornings this last week end and would love to have it again


Awesome food and server. We could use a few more just like this, my only complaint would be how popular it is. They really have a ton of people trying to eat there, it's that good.

brett smith

Little costly but Devine

Charlie Nichols

Great burgers, great prices a custer must

Alyssa Poulin

The classic breakfast was super yummy. Coffee was great black. Staff were really hustling to make sure we got seated and taken care of quickly. Would definitely return.


Very friendly. The food was fresh and just the right amount. The 2 desserts we got were yummy

David Scragg

Best Breakfast burrito in the hills definitely get the green chili sauce !

Somongkol Teng

Food was mediocre and the server (older lady) was extremely rude. I had a bunch of friends who arrived after us and wanted to sit next to us, but the waitress said no. She said they would have to go to the back of the restaurant since it was a bigger party. But, what annoyed me most was that there were 3-4 vacant tables next to us, and our friends could have sat there. Come here if you enjoy rude service!

James Porter

The wait staff was awesome and friendly, but the hostess was not as accommodating and told the waitress to make sure they add the gratuity to each of the checks in our party and was rude about us having a large party.

Justin Markuson

Amazing food and service

Steve Wood

Always enjoy the food snd bakery my favorite when they h as ve it is the eggs benedick

Hayden Gioielli

Stopped on our way to Wind Cave National Park for quick breakfast. Great muffin and glazed donut. Friendly staff!

We missed the breakfast which ends at 11am. Everyone says it's amazing. But the lunch was excellent too and they make their own buns.

Daniel Ripa

Home town food. Great quality. Amazing pastries.

Ted Dubaniewicz

Great food. You'll love their buns.

Allan Larson

Ate there for lunch one day ... Drove all the way back for breakfast called and said they serve till 11! Kids were excited for some pancakes.. got there at 10:50 and very rude ... Told us they would not serve breakfast even though we were there to be seated before 11.. we went somewhere else to eat because of how abrupt and rude ... Went to "Our Place" ... There are lots of other places in town - I don't patronize people who are rude to customers. Recommend Go elsewhere!!

Gwen Kramer

Delicious, loved the atmosphere,excellent wait staff service, timely food service and loved the background music...highly recommend!

Sarah Larcher

Love this place! Excellent food, excellent price, excellent service!

Dawn Prothro

Awesome burgers and the service is exceptional

Rachel Lo

Honestly, I will likely remember this as the friendliest service I've received in my life. I ordered the avocado toast on sourdough and grabbed a giant chocolate cookie to go, my coffee was refilled and refilled and never empty. Thank you, Seth! (I hope the name on my ticket is right)

Barb Schild

Great Service! Great Lunch! And OMGosh, the desserts!!

Libby Woodson

Always great food! Great wait staff too!

Patricia Raasch

Prompt delicious breakfast on a Sunday morning...warms the heart!!!

Patti Joseph

Excellent service, yummy food!

Nikki Kuska

Everything we ordered was delicious. Kids pancakes were huge, I would split those for smaller kids. Bread was fresh baked. Avocado toast was delicious. The bakery items in the front case were amazing, especially the lemon bars and the brownie with a pretzel crust.

Jace Townsend

Oh my goodness this needs to be everyone's morning stop great breakfast and great service Lauren is amazing!!

S Fausey

The food and service there is awesome, our waiter Trevor was the at the top of his game

Carissa Raye Todd

Been coming here for years, best doughnuts in the hills!

Dean Frei

I this place is awesome. Great food and great service.

Mark Lungre

Great sandwiches and pastries! We stumbled upon this charming place after hiking in the black hills. Great service and great food! Definitely try the Mexican burger with the green chiles.

Brandee Otto

Great place to grab breakfast before starting your day. Friendly staff. Good prices. Ate here 3x during our 5 days in Custer.

Sharon Cherry

Delicious, fresh doughnuts. Great coffee.

Sandip b

Good food.

Kenneth Schaebethal

Good food but a bit pricy.

Carolyn Christians

Reliably great food(esp the bread) and fast service, even during rally time. Lauren is amazing.

Janet Sublich

Surly, rude waiter. Lukewarm breakfast First bad experience in a dozen or so visits, hope this is just a fluke

tina eaves

This place is quaint and popular! The best mocha I've ever had! They also have expresso, etc. Sit down in or outside. We had the fresh apple turn overs and we could have eaten the whole tray! I highly recommend stopping in! Clean, friendly professional!

Eileen Jeffries

Great food, large portions and friendly staff


The food is decent. The price is decent. The service is questionable. Would have a slightly higher rating if they were open all year.

Brian Adams

Real good food.

Jake Snyder

Great food and great service!

Matthew Martinez

I would describe it as a fairly standard diner-type spot. The breakfast and pastries are technically proficient but they lacked a certain soulfulness; even though they say everything is homemade, it was hard to taste the love and sweat in the pastries and biscuits. +1 star though for the western omelette with a side of green chile sauce that is the bomb.

Pun Ajjimaporn

Great service and great food make this an experience to remember! (Also those pastries are to die for)


Great caramel cinnamon rolls and breakfast

Craig Seydel

Awesome! Have the Carmel Roll!!@

Kristen Davis

We ordered the two-egg breakfast, avocado toast, breakfast sandwich, and a caramel bun. The black rye is to die for. It's very fresh and soft. My favorite rye bread by far! The eggs were scrambled perfectly. The breakfast sandwich was served on a fresh roll that was soft and slightly sweet. It was very tasty! This was our second time here and we'll definitely be back the next time we're in Custer!

Maggie Momeyer

Food was good - get the breakfast burrito with green chilies! Owner was out in the restaurant talking about other restaurants in the area in a not so flattering manner. The restaurant is nice but not so great that you should talk bad about other restaurants in your small area. It does not settle well with me that you discuss that out in front of your customers, keep that to back room talk.

Eileen Wohlenhaus

We chose Bakers because a better-known restaurant was closed, but we were not disappointed. We got a buffalo burger (after all, we were in Custer) and a regular burger and switched plates halfway through. Both were very tasty, with the bison a little drier, but that's the nature of the beast. Since fries are available everywhere, we got baked beans and slaw as our sides. Again, both were excellent. The slaw had dried cranberries, and I may never make it again without including them. The beans were slow cooked. thick, sweet with a tiny bit of heat at the end and amazing! With the other restaurant closed they were very busy, but our server Lauren was attentive and friendly even though they were shorthanded and she was literally running to keep up. We bought some of the bakery desserts to go for dessert and "later" and they too were excellent.

Ed Paquette

Had breakfast very good excellent service pastries were good

Sue Arganek

Awful coffee. Bitter and lukewarm. Great bakery items available. Try the sticky buns.

Roger Myers

Berger's are hand pressed buns are excellent and pastries are too.

Fred Brokaw

Best pastries in SD

Tommy Sikula

The woman who sat us was sitting about a table length away from us by the entrance, while loudly talking on her cell phone. Im not sure who she was talking to, but apparently they screwed her over and karma is going to get them. This seemed like a very private conversation that probably shouldn't have happened right in front of customers. I don't know the the host's name, but she had short, blond hair. The food was AMAZING, which is why I'm still giving it 4 stars, but normally this level of unprofessionalism would cause us to not come back.

Andre Hoyt

Kind staff, great food and ok prices. Tasty mushroom burger on a soft delicious bun. I do like them buns

Susan Avallone

Loved having breakfast here. Everything was delicious and the staff were wonderful.

Bonne Hotmann

We went for lunch and ordered burgers and fries. Food was pretty mediocre. Service was unimpressive. Took awhile to place our orders and a really long time to bring us a check. Also, we ordered coca colas, server came by and asked if we wanted refills, we said yes, he said they were out and walked away. Didn't offer to get us something else. It seemed they were out of several items on the menu as well. Maybe breakfast is better? Bakery items looked good.

Pie Goddess

The food was delicious, but our waiter didn't know English so it was kind of weird.

stephanie Bach

Breakfast Burrito was amazing. Great service.

Christine Pagel

Excellent food and service

David Boehm

Best meal and service our entire 2 week trip out west

Kelsey Mitchell

We ate here for lunch. I had the turkey on croissant and my kids had grilled cheese. The food was really good, and the staff was super friendly. They also have some delicious treats at the front.

Rob Jorgenson

This was a very nice little cafe. Im not one to give reviews but this place is the exception. Very clean, friendly and fast. Lauren, our waitress was outstanding! Thank you and I can't wait to try your breakfast!!

Custer Industrial Custer,SD

Family run operation where a lot of locals eat at. The owner comes in at 4:00AM each day to get the donuts and baked items fresh for each and every day. Great breakfast and lunch with huge portions. Clean, fast service, not sure what else I can say and no, I don't own the place. Just one of the locals that has been a customer for over 10 years now. Can not go wrong with a meal or pastry from Baker's Bakery.

Tracy Rayburn

The food was delicious. The prices are spot on & so was the food. Big portions. Our waitress was awesome so we tipped her extra (because we never had to ask her for anything). Before leaving, we grabbed a ridiculous size cookie & a muffin to eat for breakfast in the morning!

Troy Daggett

Great breakfast! Super nice staff, fast and attentive service. Right downtown.

Mark Wanner

A really good place to eat! The buns are Great! A bad bun can ruin a burger. Not the biggest menu, but if you want really good food, this is the place.

Brittany Ramirez

Short woman w bleach blonde hair seating people, was very rude. Our waitress was great. Food was gross. My smothered breakfast burrito was cold on the inside w really strange green chili on the outside... Tasted like it was from a can? It was so gross, seriously. Before we left I wanted to buy doughnuts, the same blonde woman was ringing people up, she was being so rude to a little boy, I left. I didn't wanna deal w her or give any more money to that establishment after watching her be so rude.

Matt Smith

The. Food. Is. AWESOME!!!! When they say that the buffalo burgers are 1/3-pound, you better believe it. They were huge! They make the buns themselves. The lemonade was a touch too sweet for me, but it was still very good and our son liked it. We were too full to get dessert, but we might on our way back through. The cinnamon rolls and sticky buns are about 9in (NINE INCHES!) in diameter!!

Brian Olson-Rother

The food is great and the people even better

Wayne Shellabarger

Great food and great service on a very busy Monday.

Mary Schultz

Friendly staff. Amazing food. We look forward to eating there every year during the Buffalo Round-up.

Rich Wi

I had an order of the sausage biscuits and gravy and a sausage and egg sandwich. They were both delicious! A great place to stop for breakfast.

Matthew Miller

Really good omelet(went with the all-meat). Service was great, you do need to get there early. Filled in quickly after we got seated, which was around 8:00 am. Highly recommend

Ryan Stowe

Fantastic food and service. Highly recommend the acai bowl for breakfast.

Wallace Gutzmer

Good food and service. A little cramped when it's busy though. Great donuts, pastries and bakery goods... including buns

Kelley Mcdowell

Love their breakfast! Great people with great customer service !

Rodney Rahl

Several gluten free options. Not amazing, oh I can't wait to go back, but good. Cute town.

Cassidy Maestas

Wonderful staff and fantastic food!

Destroyer NWO

Great Breakfast Burrito smothered in Green Chili and got some delicious Creme Filled Long Johns afterwards

Matt Converse

Amazing burrito!

blake Monheiser

We ended up here, after a bad experience at another local restaurant. We where seated quickly our, waiter was great. Our Coke's never went empty. When we got the food everything was hot fresh and delicious. Before we left we got some pastries and they are outstanding. We left with lemon bread,lemon bars and a cherry lemon cheesecake thing. Every one of them are delicious. I will make this a stop everytime I visit Custer.

Josh Smith

Fair price very fast friendly service, everything was cooked to perfection

Jennifer Kate

Somewhat disappointed with this cafe. The bakery says you will love their buns. But those who got burgers said the bun was doughy and not fresh tasting. The wraps were liked, but turkey croissant was not a big hit. Our waitress was super friendly and hospitable. Overall, we would not return.

Eva-Marie Winter

Good service and timely seating. The place is bigger than you think, so don't be too discouraged by people sitting out front!

Tony Jones

Always great atmosphere. Good food always a plus. Great snacks as well
