Simple food done in unique and delicious ways. My 10 year old fell in love with the corn beef hash. The biscuits and gravy was also fantastic. Pretty good service given the game day madness.

I have been here a few times, usually for breakfast or lunch. Locally owned, locally sourced food, excellent quality. Breakfast menu is simple, with very high quality. If you are so inclined, the cinnamon rolls are outstanding. I lean toward a simple 'large breakfast' of two eggs, bacon or sausage, diced potatoes, and wheat toast (with homemade apple butter). In...

Loved the concept of this rustic yet simple and classic ambiance of a restaurant with a focus on fresh healthy ingredients. I ate here several times while visiting Lincoln on business, mostly because of vegetarian options, proximity to my hotel and good wine. However, their hours could be better, they are not open everyday and I was surprised that they... More

This is a charming place in a wonderful little mid-Western city that still does not understand food. Lincoln seems to be trying and Bread & Cup are trying hard, but my salad was, like every other salad in Lincoln, an un-inspired, tired version of the same salad. The ambiance was lovely and the service was nice, but the food was... More

In the Haymarket. Awesome ambiance. Friendly staff. Ate breakfast here. Food was fine but a little on the "presentation" side though for me.

I love the unique menu and atmosphere that bread and cup brings to Lincoln. I find it hard to know when they are open (hours seem to be confusing) but it's definitely worth trying. The middle aged lady (maybe owner) is such a joy. She's always so helpful and friendly. Highly recommend.

It's nice to break away from the sameness of hotel breakfasts, especially the 'free' ones. Found this place just around the corner from the Mariott Courtyard and really enjoyed their coffee and oatmeal. Noticed that they even have a full bar, I'm guessing this isn't just a breakfast place after all!

Heard so much about this place I was disappointed. Think I ordered the wrong thing should have tried a soup. Needed a heartier meal went with hamburger and it was nothing to brag about. Nice staff cute place love the haymarketbut so many great places in Lincoln not sure I'll bother with this one.

My son used to work here when in college. So when an out of town friend of his was speaking at the local university. Several of us joined the owner, Karen, for dinner outside on the deck. Dinner was great, service was outstanding. Well worth finding this place!
