The food is fresh and wonderful! I love all the menu items that you get to choose from, but I do have to say my favorite is coming for breakfast and having the egg white and arugula sandwich and the warm and fluffy beignet! You wont be disappointed!!

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 considering they expect you to bus your own table. But I kid, I kid. Great... More

Not a place to go if limited on time. Enjoy the specialties, and relax and take some time to slow down.

Unique, friendly, coffee shop/bakery with a great selection of breakfast/brunch and lunch selections. I love the Babka French Toast.

Visiting in Omaha, Nebraska I was in search of a great cup of java. Apparently there are several places that serve great coffee in Omaha but some of them have odd hours so beware. At Culprit Cafe I found a loverly latte and the flavor du jour was Orange Vanilla Rose Latte. It was delicately flavored and perfect with a... More

Looking to expand your palette from the typical eggs/bacon, pancakes, breakfast burrito? This place will do it! The beignets were amazing and the combination of flavors on this deceivingly "simple" menu is amazing. Don't walk past, stop in and enjoy!

The food was excellent for breakfast though you won't find eggs and toast on the menu. It's a bit she-she-foo-foo for me for a breakfast place but my wife was impressed by them having a true chef and providing an eating experience for breakfast.

I've visited here 2 times now -didn't want to jump to a bad conclusion after one trip but my second was even worse. The food was ok but the service was terrible...I waited for 12 minutes for a chai which ended up tasting like boiled water with a splash of milk. Won't be giving it a third try.

While visiting my daughter here in Omaha, she was dying to take me here. Because we brought my puppy to the Old Town Market, we asked if I held her if it was ok to bring her in. They had no problem with it. I wanted to order her a little something and asked if they could make the lamb... More

Really cute cafe. Wanted to order some food but we were in a hurry. I ordered the latte with the flavor of the month - burnt orange. I was skeptical but it was quite good!
