Hard to believe, but it has been two decades since Sioux Falls first tasted the fresh-baked loaves at Breadsmith.
The original store at 609 W. 33rd St. is marking its 20th anniversary this year. Owner Susie Patrick later added a location at 1813 S. Marion Road.
And clearly, Sioux Falls lined up for a new bakery 20 years ago, too.
In honor of the milestone, we asked Patrick to recommend some loaves that have risen to the top over time.
The Everyday Hero: Country Buttertop
It’s available every day and is Breadsmith’s best-selling sandwich bread.
The Customer Favorite: Honey Wheat
“It’s fantastic for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and when you spread a little apricot jam on it, it’s as good as any dessert out there,” Patrick told us. It’s also available daily.
The Great Indulgence: Peach Pie Bread is our favorite. We’re anticipating August, when it will be available every Thursday. Other sweet options include Apple Pie Bread on Mondays and Cinnamon Cobblestone — probably safest that it’s only available once or twice a month. The next time is July 29.
The Hidden Secret: Raisin Cinnamon Walnut
“I don’t like raisins and this is one of my favorite breads,” Patrick said. It’s available every Wednesday and Saturday.
The Guilt-Free Bread: Marathon Multigrain
Available Thursdays, “This lighter multigrain bread is packed with vitamins and minerals and makes great toast,” Patrick said.
The European Mainstay: French Baguette
It’s a European-style bread crafted daily in the tradition of Old World master bakers.
Breadsmith of Sioux Falls is open from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday.
