Yes, you read that correctly… Wall. Wall, South Dakota is a quaint little town, located about 40 miles east of Rapid City. We saw many signs for the town along the way from Sioux Falls, but we didn’t think to stop there until we were ready for some lunch and there had been nowhere to eat for the past 100 miles. So, we decided to stop in Wall and came across Wall Drug and Cafe. It’s located on Main Street (honestly one of the only streets in the town from what we could tell).
If you ever find yourself in the area, I highly recommend stopping in Wall and checking out the cute shops and the drug store. We found some lovely Sioux pottery for ourselves and a few gifts for friends and family.
We also had lunch at the cafe and drooled over the homemade pies. All of the decor was western style, which made it that much more charming. The employees behind the counter even wore the old fashioned, folding paper hats. Here’s a bit of history behind the drug store and cafe. It’s worth the read if you have a few minutes. I was amazed at the story behind it and how the family who owned it turned it around after the Depression with the forward thinking of the owner’s wife.
We were so impressed with the baked goods at the cafe that we even stopped in again for some of their homemade donuts on the drive back home yesterday. These are honestly the best donuts we’ve ever eaten.
