Restaurant Roundup: Cake of the day, coffee for a cause

Aug. 9, 2018

Looking for a special dessert for the weekend? CH Patisserie started offering entremets du jour, or cake of the day, on Saturdays and Sundays this summer. The pastry shop on Phillips Avenue makes two every weekend. If you don’t want to take your chances on availability, orders can be placed in advance. The cake sells for $25 and serves six to eight people. The selection changes every weekend.

First it was Taco Tuesday, and now there’s Farm Fresh Friday. Stensland Family Farms is discounting the milk from its farm across the border near Larchwood, Iowa. On Fridays at the retail store at 3101 W. 41st St., get two half-gallons of 1 percent and 2 percent milk for $4 or two gallons for $6. There’s also a BOGO special on cheese curds, block cheese and hamburger. The store, which also sells Stensland ice cream by the dish, cone or container, is open from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Fridays.

Celebrate National S’mores Day on Friday with a free campfire treat from Girl Scouts – Dakota Horizons. Stop by the headquarters at 1101 S. Marion Road from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. You can make your own or grab one through the “s’more drive-thru.”

Scooter’s Coffee is donating 100 percent of all sales Monday at its Sioux Falls locations to four local organizations that support foster children.

Pomegranate Market’s organic smoothie and beverage bar serves lots of common health food drinks, but a new one is a little more unique. The grocery store is serving St. Paul Switchel, or haymaker’s punch, on tap. It’s described as “an old-school remedy that helped haymakers beat the heat.” It features fresh ginger, wildflower honey, apple cider vinegar and lemon. Feel free to ask for a sample.

M.B. Haskett Delicatessen introduced its new dinner menu on the weekend and ran out of ingredients before mealtime Sunday. It was ready to go again by Monday night. Offerings range from garlic and black bean tofu and chicken puttanesca to lemongrass walleye and a Pittsburgh dry-aged sirloin. The downtown restaurant had been serving a prix fixe menu on the weekend for years and now will do that only on special occasions. The new dinner menu is available every day of the week.

And it looks like construction work is getting ready to begin to turn the former Borrowed Bucks Roadhouse into Vinyl Taco.
