I hope you’ve all heard of, or seen, Rachael’s Cafe at 3rd and Lincoln.
If not, you’re missing out. This local comfy spot has great coffee, great food (including vegan and GF options), and a warm atmosphere. Rachael is there most days and couldn’t be more helpful and polite to her patrons. I spent an hour studying there with a cup of coffee and a friend, but I could have spent more. Highly recommended. Check out the omelet bar on Saturdays and Sundays and live music schedule!
