Sioux Falls, SD — The Washington Pavilion is pleased to announce the opening of its café, The WP, following its complete renovation. An enhanced dining experience and cozy space await new and returning visitors including: 

•    A revamped menu including daily rotating hot entrées, market-fresh sandwiches, scoop-n-serve salads, delicious soups, fun kids’ meals and homemade pastries
•    Physical changes to the serving counter and new flooring and lighting creating a more welcoming atmosphere
•    Beautiful food displays and retail shelving
•    Cozy, kid-friendly seating areas and colorful wall features

“We couldn’t be more thrilled with how this transformation has turned out. The entire atmosphere of this space has shifted over the past year, especially with these final renovations,” says Darrin Smith, President and CEO of Washington Pavilion Management, Inc. “From the way you order to the inviting dining area to the new, tasty menu, we have nailed this upgrade to our café, and we cannot wait to get the community in here to experience it!”

Spend your day at the Washington Pavilion by exploring our museums and savoring a great-tasting and affordable meal in downtown Sioux Falls. Remember, Washington Pavilion members enjoy 10% off their entire meal.

In addition to the changes to its physical space and menu, the café has adjusted its hours of operation. The WP will now be open Tuesday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. These hours more closely align with the hours for the Kirby Science Discovery Center and Visual Arts Center and will be extended during the summer to include Mondays as well.
