Sissy’s Cafe, Gregory, SD

In the middle of another long day of driving for us, we found ourselves in Gregory, SD, after stopping in a few small towns before finding a decent restaurant that offered any veggie options. Gregory was part of the territory opened for settlement in 1904 by Theodore Roosevelt.

Today, this approximately 1,200 resident town is small, but nice, with a picturesque main street (You know, the classic one stoplight strip with mom and pop stores and restaurants along with municipal buildings.)

We happened upon Sissy’s Cafe and were truly delighted to have a wonderful waitress who guided us through the menu, suggesting substitutions as needed, which resulted in a delicious lunch.

We got a veggie burrito and taco salad.

After lunch, we stretched our legs by walking the length of Main Street, stopping at a bakery to pick up a yummy blueberry muffin and coconut cake for next morning’s breakfast.
