|Since 1993 the Bay Leaf Cafe' has consistently used only the finest and freshest ingredients for their menu. Partners French Bryan and Taffy Tucker have been in the restaurant and tourism business since 1975. When they decided to open the Bay leaf they made a commitment to serve dishes they would be proud of and treat their customers as family. You are eating at their table, French is the Chef and Taffy is your hostess.|
|The Bay Leaf Cafe' building was built in 1892 as the Queen City Hotel and went through many years of neglect until rescued and remodeled in 1993 by French and Taffy. The community welcomed this new venture with open arms, so much that the Spearfish Beautification Committee bestowed its first-ever Business of the Month Award to the Bay Leaf just days after the restaurant opened.|
|The Bay Leaf Cafe' not only presents fine dining in a great atmosphere they also support the local arts community by featuring local artist's work. A changing selection of art work hangs on the walls and is offered for sale.|
|Today the Bay Leaf Cafe' family includes the Cafe', the Carriage Room for events, Berry's Best Desserts, Bay Leaf Cafe's catering service, and Guides to Go a step on service for motor coach groups.|

|Guides to Go|
|Bay Leaf Café also offers receptive tour services.|
The Bay Leaf Café's Guides to Go service can set up an itinerary,
arrange transportation and provide the step on guide who will tell you
the history of the Black Hills from the eyes of someone who lives here
and loves these Hills.
From family reunions, out of town wedding parties, class reunions, or just a group of friends getting together let Guides to Go take the stress out of your planning. Brides have enough to do without worrying about entertaining out of town guests who have traveled a long way to help them celebrate but have a day or two on their own.
|How about a day trip to Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse with a picnic lunch from the Bay Leaf Café? Or possibly a morning spent in Hill City's great art galleries and a picnic overlooking Pactola Lake, a pristine mountain lake with stunning views. We can take a drive through Spearfish Canyon, a scenic byway just east of Spearfish where wild trout thrive in the creek and deer, elk and mountain goats can be seen and the scenic waterfalls run year round. The winter scene from the movie Dances with Wolves was filmed in Spearfish Canyon and at times you can still feel the presence of those ghosts from the past. Whatever time you have let us help plan the adventures for you and your family or friends.|
|In 2006 the Bay Leaf expanded their offering by opening Berry's Best Desserts, specializing in wedding cakes and fancy desserts. Courtney Berry the pastry chef is a graduate of Johnson & Wales University in Charleston, South Carolina with a focus on baking and pastry arts.|
