When Mike Haskett opened an eatery in 2012, he wanted to create a casual atmosphere with real food made by real people. M.B. Haskett, located in downtown Sioux Falls, accomplished just that with an eclectic menu of tastes that combine traditional recipes from around the world with the talented team’s flare. The location is now a community and restaurant staple.

Already known as one of the top places to grab breakfast in the state, their evening menu recently had a makeover for a more informal dinner experience. Haskett gave 605 a bite (or five) of one of the offerings, along with a refreshing beverage.
