  • Fresh breads everyday at 3:00. Baguettes, sourdough, tomato basil, maple oat.
  • Great selection of coffee and espresso drinks, including cold drip-brewed coffee, aged (which was AWESOME). In-house syrups and daily juices. Friendly and knowledgable staff.
  • Great coffee and bread-cool vibe!
  • Pastries, breads, coffee, tea, breakfast, juices 6:30-10:30 lunch 11am, sandwiches, salads. Great location on 16th & Farnam.
  • Quiche is yumalicious
  • Great coffeeshop with lots of table space. Windows lined with bar seating. Quiche was just ehh, go for something in the pastry case instead.
  • In a town with fantastic people, but few culinary options, this cafe is an oasis for someone looking for European and East Coast style bakery and cafe. Very good by any standards.
  • Great pastries, super helpful staff!
  • 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!
  • They have great beignets
  • Got the French toast and vanilla latte, great deal
  • Traditional macchiato & delicious scones.
  • Love visiting Culprit when I'm in Omaha! Luke, the owner, is a great guy, easy to talk to and fantastic chef. Broadway Coffee on espresso & filter. His baked goods are handcrafted edible works of art
  • Coffee, scones, and sandwiches are all good here! Only minor issue is the open kitchen can leave your clothes a little smelly. So visit when you can change afterwards
  • Great food! Great coffee!
  • This place is fantastic. Great coffee and really good food and pastries. The owner, Luke, is very friendly and always great to talk to.
  • Not a bad place to stop by when you're on the go for a quick pastry and drink!
  • The Frittata Sandwich (caramelized onion + cob smoked ham + swiss on rustic boule bread) is the BEST deal in town. Hands down.
  • They serve coffee roasted by Broadway Cafe in KCMO. Excellent choice.
  • The cinnamon rolls here are to die for. Love that they make so many things here from scratch. So good.
