Long-time friends Jordan Taylor and Barry Putzke moved back to Sioux Falls from Portland, ore. to open Bread & Circus Sandwich Kitchen – a west coast farm-to-table-inspired eatery. 605 caught up with the duo to take a look at their lives when they’re not working long hours creating handcrafted food and beverages (did someone say Naughty Fries?).


I love getting the Baozhong Tea [1] at Coffea Roasterie. I usually make a quick run down there in the middle of the afternoon for a little pick-me-up.

After a long day at work, I enjoy stopping for a whisky or cocktail (try Jordan’s Special) at Carpenter Bar [2]. Brian White (“Whitey”) definitely knows what he’s doing, and they’re the only bar in town that stocks my favorite whisky.

I really enjoy hiking and camping, so when I have time, I scoot out to Newton Hills. You would never know a place like that is so close to Sioux Falls.

Bros Brasserie’s brunch is another one of my favorites. The Frittatas are filling and delicious, especially on a Sunday morning after a beverage or two at the Carpenter the night before.

Right now I’m loving the Curried Cauliflower on Naan [3] at our restaurant. I had never attempted to make a curry before, and it turned out great the first time. It comes with red lentil hummus, cilantro, and radish. It’s vegan and light, but packs a punch.


Even though I have been cooking for 15 years, I also have a business/economics degree from South Dakota State University.

I once backpacked the western half of South America for four-and-a-half months (Colombia to Chile and back).

My guilty pleasure food is Stove Top pork stuffing.


After being away for 15 years, I’m really enjoying rediscovering all the great things Sioux Falls has to offer. In the limited time I do have, you can find me sipping on coffee at places like Queen City Bakery (gimme!), M.B. Haskett (The Breaks Coffee Roasting Co.), The Source Coffee Roastery + Taproom [4], and Coffea Roasterie.

I love leisurely riding bikes [5] with my wife, Jenny, and daughter, Ruby Blue. It’s such a great way to explore your surroundings. We try to get out at least once a day.

I could eat tacos and burritos every day. My favorite (so far) around here are from Hernandez Tortilleria. It’s a wonderfully authentic hidden gem of a spot to fill the huge void I created when we moved back from Portland.

There’s not much I find more relaxing than a cold beer on a comfortable patio [6] with friends. My personal favorite is, of course, Bread & Circus Sandwich Kitchen.
