Like many of you, I’ve known Diane Youree for years. She has been cooking and baking her way back and forth across SW South Dakota for years. In 2010, she took up residence with family and staff in Hot Springs in a location down along the river, across from the old depot, in a cafe she titled … The Upper Crust Cafe and Heaven Scent Bakery. Perfect.
You’ve heard me say it before and I’m saying it again in that if you want to know how good an eatery is, see how full they are day in and day out. Diane and her cooking have always been a calling card and this café is no exception. The Upper Crust Café and Heaven Scent Bakery also passes the “sniff test” in that even before you get to the door, it smells like you’re walking back into grandma’s kitchen. There are few times when I’m in Hot Springs that I don’t stop into The Upper Crust and Heaven Scent bakery and once you give it a try, you’ll be back too …. 605-745-4144
