Definitely worth a visit

The husband and I stumbled across this gem while looking for a non-fastfood place to eat at by the zoo. Needless to say, we were a bit shocked at first by the Bohemian Cafe. All entries come with soup, a vegetable, and a side, to which we got the dumplings. It was so much food and so good. I grew... read more

I love Hungarian and Czech food and this restaurant has some great entrees for Czech food. I had such a hard time deciding between Goulash and Saur Brauten that they brought me samples before choosing the saur brauten and dumplings. There is also good American fare, too, if you wish. They have a great selection of Czech beers and a... More

We stumbled upon this by accident. Alex was our waitress and she was very friendly and helpful assisting us with our selections. When our meal arrived we were delighted with the presentation and the flavor! They have smaller ethnic entrées available which we selected and were sufficient for us. If you like Eastern European/ Czech food, this is the place... More

The last time I ate a full Dinner here, was in April 2013. I was to go in for a stem cell collection the next day at UNMC. My Son, who has "Hollow legs" accompanied me and inherited most of my meal. We ordered much from the menu. I ate some of everything, but saved myself for a wonderfully fresh... More

Ok.....so it's not in the best location in Omaha, but well worth your drive and your time. My only suggestion is you only go if hungry! Opened in 1924, we had an opportunity to revisit a place we had been to year ago, and were not disappointed. The staff is very friendly and helpful, but the food is the showstopper.... More

Having not been there for many years we decided to go there for dinner a while back. We were not a bit disappointed. The food was every bit as good as the last time we were there and we enjoyed it very much. We had taken our boys there when they were teenagers and they liked it. Now my younger... More

Older ladies in costume wait on your. Great sweet and sauer cabbage, goulash, pork, etc. My only disappointment was the dumpling which was not pasta based but more pancake-based.

This was our first experience with Czech food and it was not what we expected. The dumplings were heavy and had no flavor everything was covered in gravy. The sweet and sour cabbage seem to have a thickener in it. The café was recommended to us but we will not recommended it and we probably won't go back.

Came here all the time growing up and visited for he first time in ten years. Pleased to report still the real deal. Duck was moist and tender as always. Dumplings and sweet and sour cabbage was excellent. Liver dumpling soup was outstanding. Love this place!

I have been coming here since I was a very little girl. The food is amazing and nothing has changed a bit over the years. My favorites are the liver dumpling soup, pork roast, sauerkraut, and mashed potatoes. Oh and you can't forget the rye bread and kolacky. You need to Czech it out!
