Lincoln’s Breakfast Spots
by Sriyani Tidball
I love breakfast. French toast, eggs benedict, pancakes, omelets, poached eggs, bacon, rolls and muffins, I just love it all. Somehow in most cities they have multitude of restaurants that serve lunch and dinner, but when it comes to breakfast, Lincoln has many options.
Bread and Cup at 440 N. 9th St., serves an awesome brunch on Saturdays and Sunday mornings, and breakfast everyday but Monday. The menu is huge and delicious. My favorite is their wonderful cinnamon rolls paired with a mimosa, or some French toast made with their own homemade bread. Bread and Cup serves great breakfast Tuesday through Friday from 7 a.m. and Saturday at 8 a.m. and Sunday from 10 to 2 p.m. they serve an amazing brunch.
Green Gateau at 330 S. 10th St. offers a wonderful brunch on Saturday and Sundays. Their brunch menu is full of options with organic, cage-free eggs, plus vegan and gluten free selections. Their strawberry stuffed crepes are one of my favorites, and if you like eggs benedict, they have a variety of options like spinach, salmon or seared tuna.
Penelope’s Lil Café at 4724 Pioneers Blvd. has famous breakfasts. During the fall time means it is hatch green chili time so back by popular demand with green pork chili skillet. It will be available on Sundays, while it lasts!
Many of the hotels downtown offer great breakfasts, and the coffee houses, especially The Mill (8th and P Streets and in College View), the Coffee House (at 14th and P Streets), always offers great rolls, muffins, and the best coffee in town. Cultiva (33rd and Holdrege and at 11th and G Streets) offers great coffee and amazing crepes stuffed with sweet and savory items. They serve breakfast all day long.
The Engine House,at 6028 Havelock Ave. in the north part of the city, carries the ambiance of a fire station. They offer a full breakfast with eggs, bacon, burritos and more. During the weekends you will have a wait as it is a very popular spot. If you are looking for a great omelet try Cook’s Café at 1300 N. 66th St. in the north part of town where they also serve great coffee in a bottomless cup.
