“Atmosphere Brewed up Right”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

Located in the historic part of Lincoln in a former Seed wholesale building, this place has charm and whimsy. Wood floors, exposed brick and quirky art donated by patrons (like the Barbie collection) leave all the plastic hubris to the chain coffeeshops. The old train dock lets you people-watch above the cobblestones and is THE place during Husker Games and Farmers' Market. The baristas make an excellent variety of espresso drinks. The granita is a popular fav in the summer - like a coffee slushie. The Mill offers a wonderful variety of exotic loose-leaf selections, and like the hand-roasted beans, can be taken home for your personal stash. Try some of the locally-baked gourmet goods to go with your beverage or pick up some coffee and tea equipment the next time you're stuck for that perfect gift. Better yet, buy a French Press for yourself.
If you like the downtown Mill, you might also like their Prescott outpost on 48th street, also in a funky building with all the same charm and goods!

“Great coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

This place has excellent coffee. I especially like the Americano. It is a wonderful place to stop on your way to a Husker game and it is in an excellent location. It is also a nice environment for reading a newspaper or meeting up with friends and family.

“good local coffee shop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

My husband stops there every morning on his way to the office. He loves their coffee and buys it by the pound to make at home. It is a very low key
setting with a loyal following.

“Superb atmosphere with excellent coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

The Mill has character. Located in historic Lincoln, NE, it is an old style coffee shop with rustic decor: large windows in the front and a back-room area isolated from the outside. The shop seems like a throw-back to the past. The coffee is seriously prepared. I ordered a latte which was excellent. The barista also had dimensionality and was articulate. In addition to coffees and teas, the shop has baked goods, sandwiches, and other food stuff. A great place to relax with coffee and review the day.
