Favorite Brunch Spots In & Around Omaha, NE

Early Bird

3824 Farnam Street, Suite 120
Omaha, NE 68131

This restaurant is so cute. Nestled within the city, with college students and families alike were gathered for brunch. The menu was pretty 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.

Insider Tip: through the passageway to the bathrooms, was an entrance to the neighboring restaurant, Eat Bob’s Donuts.    

Lisa's Radial Café

817 N 40th St
Omaha, NE 68131-1828

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 were bigger than the kids, and their Magic Mouse pancake for the kids was a huge hit! The french toast was delightful, and the portion of the chorizo skillet was quite large. This was a great family-friendly spot, and I see us returning soon.

Culprit Café & Bakery

1603 Farnam St.
Omaha, NE 68102

What a charming location downtown and so cozy. There is a beautiful waiting/seating area, high top seating along with the large windows, and smaller tables throughout the restaurant.

They have a cotton candy donut, can you go wrong? The beignets are warm and fresh and bring you to the streets of New Orleans at Café Du Monde. And the French toast is served with praline butter, granola, and rosemary maple syrup-yum! It would be an excellent spot for a brunch date or a one-on-one outing with one of your children.

Kitchen Table

1415 Farnam St
Omaha, NE 68102

Kitchen Table is an adorable location downtown that offers a full menu. Our favorite 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 and Bakery

1202 Howard Street
Omaha, NE 68102

Most notably 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. And they have dog treats too!
