In Search of Breakfast

Mere words cannot describe the warm affection I feel toward the breakfast meal. I consider myself quite the breakfast aficionado, so it only makes sense that I would venture out to various breakfast spots in town in search of the best place I could find where the food is delicious and the menu delightfully varied.

Vidlak’s Brookside Café, 15668 West Center Road, Mon-Sun 7:00AM – 1:00PM

Vidlak’s Brookside Café has a no-nonsense ambiance. You seat yourself and the efficient wait staff suddenly appears out of nowhere. There is not much by way of décor, but what it lacks in aesthetics it makes up for in great food and low prices.

The menu features the standard breakfast fare, but the...

Benson is buzzing with Lot2

When I moved to Omaha five years ago, I have to admit, Benson scared me a little bit. Lots of hole-in-the wall bars, and that crazy maternity shop with the world’s largest bra in the window.

Crumbs July 5 2012
