Create your own “brunch” box with classic entrees like waffles, breakfast burritos, and more. All entrees and sides can be made egg (and dairy) free. It’s great for families with $5 kids meals (includes an entree, drink, and mini froyo).

Early Bird Brunch

7775 Olson Drive, Papillon, NE
10730 Pacific Street, Omaha, NE

This restaurant is so cute and there are 3 locations around Omaha: Blackstone District, Regency, and Shadow Lake in Papillion! It’s a great spot for family brunch or a breakfast date. The menu is extensive with creative twist options such as Cereal Killer Pancakes, PB&J French Toast, or Chicken & Donut. They also have café options and cocktails available for purchase.

Lisa’s Radial Cafe

817 N 40th St Omaha, NE 

This is a great local spot in town with classic, tasty menu items. It has a hometown, “everybody knows your name” feel when you walk in.

The pancakes are bigger than the kids, and their Magic Mouse pancake for the kids was a huge hit! The French toast is delightful, and the portion of the chorizo skillet is quite large. This is a great family-friendly spot.

Kitchen Table 

1415 Farnam St
Omaha, NE 68102

The best thing is the atmosphere (and the bacon). The owners work with local farmers to get fresh products throughout the year. The bread is made in-house and is served warm. The everything bagel cheese balls are a must-order!

Wheatfields Eatery & Bakery

1 Pacific Place 103rd & Pacific Omaha, NE 

Known for the “best cakes in Omaha Metro”, don’t sleep on their brunch (and lunch) menu! We recommend the quiche Lorraine and their giant cinnamon rolls. They also have seasonal menu items like zucchini French toast, baked apple pecan crepes, and German potato pancakes. 

The downtown location has a take-out area with fresh bakery and lunch options, and there is also a sit-down dining area. They have some prepackaged items and bread, and plenty of quick to-go options. 

Saddle Creek Breakfast Club

1540 N Saddle Creek, Omaha, NE

Don’t sleep on this popular local restaurant that puts a modern twist on your favorite breakfast classics.
