Use our free wireless internet while enjoying a free taste of our homemade fudge, or stop by to grab a coffee on your way to the Mount Rushmore lighting ceremony!
Dine outdoors in a peaceful garden setting with a beautiful view of Mt. Rushmore. Ride the scenic chairlift up to find waterfalls, walking paths, panoramic views, and thousands of flowers in granite-bordered beds. The open-air café offers salads, grilled-to-order burgers and other sandwiches, ice cream, and ice-cold beer. Everyone enjoys “a table with a view”! Guests may choose to ride the chairlift back down, or to take a sled down the exciting alpine slide.
