The chicken salad on Brioche bun was very good, and the cheesy potatoes as well. The "beignets" were good but plain honey should be offered for them free of charge. Good atmosphere. No booths.

I stopped by for a quick lunch at Culprit's as it had been recommended by a colleague. It did not disappoint. The food for the price is great. Sometimes, the line to order can get a little long. This was sad as I wanted to...More

After eating way too much for breakfast at Omaha restaurants it was nice to find a low key cafe with lighter options. The menu isn't very large but we had the French toast which was not overwhelming and very delicious. Many different coffee and tea...More

Food was great, coffee was excellent. Service had a bit of an attitude, but they are hipsters so I guess they can't help it. Tip options on credit card machine are no tip, 15%, 20%, 25% or 30%. Uh, here's a dollar? Nope. Pretty funny...More
