This is a pleasant little cafe where you park on a quaint "main street." Just about any mug or item inside is for sale. The servers are pleasant, and you'll be there a while. The menu is small, but the deserts are wonderful, especially their...apple pie!More

This is a gem of a little place in Nebraska City. Good wine list, cute shopping while waiting, and amazing desserts. I ordered the Thai flat bread and it was excellent. Had a glass of Earthquake cab. Husband ordered the pork tenderloin sandwich and he...said it was great. We split the praline apple pie for dessert. Will always stop here on our way through.More

This is a nice little restaurant that serves lunch and fantastic desserts. The place is very casual and comfortable. We ended up sharing 3 desserts - the cheesecake, the bread pudding and the carrot cake. They were all fantastic.

So glad we checked out the Keeping Room on our way thru. We ordered the Pulled pork special and Thai pizza both were amazing and obviously made with fresh and healthy ingredients. had a side of their chicken noodle soup which is like my mom...made. Finish off with their bread pudding and apple praline pie both very good. Stopped by next day for crab cake salad and fish and chips. Spouse said here salad was very good. Ordered the coconut creme pie best I had ever had. Service was top notch. Loved that they served meals on real polish dishes.More

My fiancé and I were looking for a place for dessert and we couldn’t have been happier. They have some of the best bread pudding ever made!

Excellent cafe in downtown Nebraska City. French dip sandwich was amazing. We tried the Asian chicken salad and the apple walnut salad. Everything homemade and delicious. The Apple praline pie ala mode was wonderful. Staff was friendly and the cafe was clean. Adjoining boutique was...well appointed. Will return! What a great find!!!More

Excellent food and service! Our lunch plates were fresh and appealing, and our server, though very busy, was friendly and attentive with us. We enjoyed sitting in their outside porch area, very relaxing, made for a perfect day! We will most definitely return!

Really good food, the staff was very helpful and checked in often to meet our needs. The place was busy but the food wait was short.

It is not my restaurant, but, the menu is very small & most of the options have gluten. They sometimes have salads you could ask to be made gluten-free. I'm not sure if salad dressings have gluten.
