There's lots of places to eat breakfast in Rapid City. But there is only one place that I really like to go. Ron's Cafe. It's a tiny hidden little gem next to and behind Everest Cuisine.
I have been here numerous times and the food is consistently good. The place is consistently packed and busy. The customer service for me has always been good, but I have heard others say they had a bad experience. I don't really care. Small diners are for good affordable comfort food, and that's what Ron delivers.
It is not open on weekends, which is a sore spot for me. I don't generally have time during the weekday to go there. So consequently I only get to go there every now and then. The hours are 7am to 2pm, Mon-Fri.
Whatever you get off the menu will be delicious and hot. I am particular to the corned beef hash omelet and the hot chicken dinner. Very good! Go there, you won't be disappointed. Be nice to the overworked staff. They have a tough job!
