Forget the ordinary. You’re in search of the fun, unique, quirky shops! We appreciate your sense of not going for the usual t-shirts, ties, and gift cards. To help you on your quest for the perfect gift that no one else has, we’ve compiled a list of the most unique specialty shops in Sioux Falls.

Breakfast: M.B. Haskett
Locals rave about M.B. Haskett’s crêpes, which are crafted in the French tradition (and taste great with a mimosa). Try both the sweet and savory option! The quiche is killer, too. Looking for a dinner hotspot? The chef prepares a special 3-course pre-fixe tasting menu Fridays and Saturdays.

In a world before the internet dominated book sales, Zandbroz Variety provided book lovers an opportunity to discover unique titles in a setting that takes shoppers back in time. Browse their eclectic home decor and gifts. In the words of one happy customer, “It’s like a gift shop from your dreams.”

Further Afield: (Bridges at 57th)
Take a refreshing break from shopping at Bracco World Café & Island Bar! Cool off at this unique and popular hotspot near Bridges at 57th with a margarita on the patio, or indulge in an island-themed lunch of the seared ahi salad or fish tacos.
Grab a cupcake from Oh My Cupcakes! before you leave the area. Choose from favorites like Lemon Drop or Triple Chocolate Meltdown. Try monthly seasonal flavors, too!
Hello, Fido! This pup-specific boutique shop at The Bridges at 57th offers food, supplies, and toys for your family’s four-legged furry friend. All-natural dog food options—and the most innovative and entertaining accessories around. Grooming products, treats, and chew toys are also available!
Details are in this store’s DNA. Custom framing, home decor, Pandora jewelry, clothing, shoes, and HOBO bags are some of the treasures you’ll find in this unique spot also at The Bridges at 57th. Original and chic findings make the “lifestyle shoppe” a place to find that sweet trinket to take home.
Getting hungry with all that walking and shopping? Tacos served 24 hours to the rescue! Giliberto’s has salads, burritos, nachos, and vegetarian dishes if you need a quick snack break.
Throwback time. Last Stop CD Shop has all those nostalgic games, music CDs, DVDs (and—gasp—VHSs!), and books you’ve been looking for, but can’t even find on Amazon.com. Several floors of old memories and grunge-ish art work make this one of Sioux Falls’ uniques stops.
Dinner: The Barrel House
We love The Barrel House. This newly opened restaurant already has a reputation for stellar burgers (and pizza). Thirty craft brews on tap, whiskey and bourbon menus, and open concept seating make this the ultimate, modern watering hole. It’s the perfect way to end the day with a cold glass of beer!
