Tripointe Coffeehouse

You’ll want to make sure you bring some cash for a tip when you visit Tripointe Coffeehouse in downtown Papillion. First you’ll want to drop some cash into the barista’s tip jar, because everyone who works at this particular coffeehouse is paid volunteers. You’ll also want to add some money to the “love tank,” which is box for donations to buy a cup of coffee for customers who can’t afford to buy it themselves. Then you’ll want to drop some money into one of the three jars intended for donations to Revolution 61, a non-profit organization fighting human trafficking.

Food Futures: Playing at 2014 predictions

As I write this piece on predicting the future of the Omaha food scene, I am biting chucks of bread off a warm baguette from the new French bakery, Le Petit Paris, the fantastic surprise addition to Le Voltaire. With my crusty yet full attention, I am finding it difficult making predictions about what is next for this progressive Omaha food scene. I still feel like I am in the year 2010, so looking into the crystal ball towards 2014, I see a smokey haze of what will be. Therefore, I think looking back at what we cherish most from our Omaha culinary community might be the best way to move forward.

When looking at this past year, the soul and spirit of our Omaha community, its entrepreneurship and unwavering patronage is very evident. As we see so many new establishments becoming part of our growing culinary metropolis, we look back on 2013 as a very diverse and crafty year for food and drink.

Let’s look back and celebrate some of the new restaurants that have opened this past year. Even a chain restaurant should be celebrated as it shows that our area is one of growth and provides jobs to our community. So we will start with Chicken. Papillion opened the very much-anticipated Chick-fil-A while Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers was added to the Dodge strip east of 72nd. Next worth...
