Where To Grab Great Coffee In Lincoln, Nebraska

One of the best perks of living in our downtown Lincoln apartments is the wealth of fantastic coffee options available within walking distance. Whether you prefer it black or with cream and sugar, enjoy a quality cup of joe from these three local coffee spots.



Lincoln Espresso excels at delivering fantastic coffee with a personal touch. You'll find some excellent quality in the regular drip coffee options, but where Lincoln Espresso really delivers is with their decadent frappes and seasonal flavorings. Candy-flavored drinks inspired by KitKat or Reese's Peanut Butter Cups pack enough of a punch to satisfy any sweet tooth. Be sure to stop by on Wednesday to take advantage of the extra espresso shot special.


There are several The Mill Coffee locations throughout Lincoln, but the Telegraph location tops the list of favorites. Located in a beautifully restored historic building, The Mill is a vast space teeming with ambiance. Ample seating makes this an ideal gathering place for larger groups, or simply the perfect location to spread out books and study. You'll find an array of freshly roasted coffee as well as over sixty varieties of loose tea. Try the Creole Lait, infused with chicory, to be instantly transported to New Orleans.


The Coffee House is a Lincoln staple that has been serving up coffee and freshly baked goodies to locals for over 30 years. The menu here is extensive, but the house specialties won't steer you wrong. The Vanilla Bean Ginger Latte is decadent, and the combination of espresso and cocoa blended into the Voltaire can't be beat. Check out the regular weekly specials to take advantage of some delicious deals.
