REVIEWS OF Himalayan Java IN Nebraska

Joy Machado

This was my first visit to Himalayan Java and it was a real suprise. The place is quite cozy, clean and quaint. The staff is so sweet, my barista had a smile on his face throughout, it was nice to see a happy staff, make the place really likeable. The coffee itself is wonderful. The latter is truly top of the kinds. Next time however I plan to get the Himalayan chai which seems like it should be their speciality. The decor of the place is also really wonderful and very comfortable The books left around for customers adds a special touch. If you are in the area, it's definitely worth stopping by for


Come for the momos (Tibetan dumplings) on Wednesdays and Saturdays (11:30-1:30)! They’re delicious! The spices are perfect and getting the blend of the spicy sauces gives you a kick but doesn’t leave you sweating. I also recommend the Himalayan chai. The coffee is also quite strong and delicious.

I love this adorable place. Wish I was able to visit more. Momo is, amazing, indeed chai is so delicious

Andrea Pope

My husband and I both got iced coffees here. They were way too sweet, watery and the coffee did not taste good. Both of us took one sip and we both couldn't finish them. We would not recommend this place.

Christy Trollope

I’m from out of town and was looking for a cozy, down home feel. After trying one other in town that seemed more for the millennial crowd I found myself at Himalayan Java. HJ checked off all my boxes. I enjoyed a Carmel marshmallow steamer and a Carmel bread pudding muffin. I was treated VERY well and looking to go again tomorrow before leaving Omaha.

Robert Riviere

Fantastic coffee. Great space. Visited on a trip but will definitely be back.

Toni Myers

Super friendly staff. Very welcoming atmosphere. Great macchiatos!

Amey Patil

Great place for snacks. Location and aura is awesome

Jeremiah Pierce

Great place and people

Katie Bane

Low key with great coffee and good service

Shem Ishler

Downtown Omaha is strange. It’s a ghost town. One of the only cities I’ve been to that doesn’t really have a shopping district, the streets are barren of traffic and cars, there’s hardly even any foot traffic... So, I was surprised to find good coffee since I started thinking no one even lives or works down here. This hot cup of yummy latte is exactly what I needed in this frigid day.... Thanks Himalayan!

Sydney Goldberg

Awesome coffee, friendly service, delicious pastries. Love spending time here.

Joel Wilson

Great atmosphere, delightful chai latte.

Small Guy Promotions

Since I had the day off, we decided to stop down to Himalayan Java for a lunchtime snack. Sag, the owner, is the man and I really liked the place. The spot had a neighborhood feel and that shined through as Sag greeted so many of the customers with handshakes and/or hugs. The hot chocolate and coffees were all good as well as the cinnamon coffee cake that we ordered. We even got to try some Mo Mo which wad pretty excellent. The sauce used has a very unique flavor that tastes like ginger and some kind of curry. There is probably more to it than that I'm sure. The service was wonderful and the cashier even remembered my name. That coupled with the way the owner interacts with the customers would bring me back. I'm a huge fan establishments effete the owner mashes a point to be out on the floor.

Alfredo Arce

Great service good food awesome coffee

Angela Brown

Genuine staff, amazing service, and such good food!!

Lealani Morton

Delicious coffees, incredible pastries, scrumptious sandwiches. Love this place.

Angela Peters

One darn sexy cup of café. Friendly does not begin to describe the people who work here. They go above and beyond to learn your name and remember it along with your favorite drink order. it is definitely a coffee shop you can effectively work from if you still use paper and need to have something printed. There is space to sit outside and enjoy the weather and plenty of sitting inside as well. Take a minute or two to look over the menu. Their food offerings are definitely ethnic and definitely worth trying.

Patrick Wardyn

The iced coffee was very very bitter and tasted like day old drip coffee they poured over ice. No iced tea options at all, only chai latte.

Emily Weskirchen

Great dark roast! I love the people that work there and the scones are amazing!

Charlie C

Great place I just wished it stayed open later then 6pm

Craig Crinklaw

Awesome coffee and friendly service are a staple at this establishment. Homemade soups and baked goods are also delicious. A must have cup of coffee when in downtown Omaha.

Max Regalado

teas are awsome! and the momos are a specialty

Bret O'Doherty

Their iced coffee is awesome. It is a darker roast, but if you're into that - it's perfect.

Jori Greaves

This place is seriously awesome

Kit Morse

John Wanies

Great coffee/tea. Sagar, the Nepalese owner, is super friendly.


My new favorite spot for Chai latte and their house salad is a knock out!

Jonathan Patton

Excellent vibe, great prices and service!


Love this fantastic little cafe in downtown Omaha! We were in town for a wedding, staying right around the corner at the Residence Inn, when I found this little gem. I don't mind walking a couple blocks through blustering cold winds for a good cup off coffee and a quaint place to hang out for a bit—Himalayan Java is the perfect spot. The building is very unassuming but the interior transports you out of Nebraska with it's huge Everest poster, welcoming couches, and colorful flags swooping from the ceiling. The coffee is delicious, I stuck with my usual latte while my MIL quite enjoyed an Americana. We were very temped by the large assortment of lovely pastries, trying a raspberry scone—it was really good—and had plans to go back for lunch to try the "momos", which another customer raved about, but alas were caught up in wedding festivities. Next time! I highly recommend taking a break for coffee and treats in this inviting cafe.

Amanda Camacho

The coffee and food was great! Everything tasted wonderful. The cashier who helped me was so sweet and provided such great service. The other employees were also very friendly. I will definitely be going back!

With thousands of flavors of coffee along with beautiful environment and the most friendly peoples, this is the best coffee house I ever had.

Rajiv Sapkota

Staffs are very friendly and the coffee is great. What a good place to chill.

Ben Cannatti

This was another good stop for a morning start up. Comfortable space - great couch - and a tasty Himalayan chai. Staff were friendly and engaging.

Ed Knapton

Amazing coffee, the most authentic momo’s I’ve had since Butwal, Nepal. The owner Sloger is super friendly and helpful. I had the privilege to show him my pictures from the original Himalayan java in Kathmandu. I can’t wait to come back to Omaha to visit.

Ethan Borgen

Didn't get my order quite right, and I wish the bagels were toasted better. Drink was great though.

Matthew Holst

Great place for great coffee good food warm atmosphere friendly service and authenticity! High recommend

Darlene Tyree

One of the best coffee stops in Omaha!! Always a great experiance!

Frankie MacGregor

I'm not a coffee drinker and I'm gluten intolerant so the best option for me here was a bottle of water. I went there at night and the only hot tea options they had were two teas with caffeine. I hope they start doing better. The environment felt a little cluttered. It wasn't my favorite and I will probably never go back.

Joo Chung

Even if you don't drink coffee you should go and try their chai latte. So tasty! And all staff there are really nice and friendly!

Carol Copeland

Make a friend. Have a real Momo. Enjoy a book. But best of all have coffee imported directly from NEPAL!!!!

Bryant Holmes

Amazing coffeeshop. Definitely not run-of-the-mill. Great ambience, really good food, and I like that it's open until 9pm. Worth checking out!

Leonard Hawkins

Bitter coffee and very expensive

Katherine Rodriguez

Went for my first time a few days ago, oh lord.. I love this place. The customer service was amazing! They explained to me the drinks answered all my questions with a friendly attitude. I went and worked on my journal and it was a cute cafe to get inspired and to work. I will definitely be going back!!

Megan Palmer

Himalayan java's coffee is really good and I like their ambiance. But they really need to figure out a better system for communicating orders among the staff. 2 of the 3 times I've gone, they've gotten something wrong with my order (not leaving room for milk, not adding the right syrup, etc.) It makes me a little hesitant to go back because it's not fun to get back to work and realized your coffee isn't right!

Leana Dappen

So delicious! Haven't had a cappuccino like this since Europe. Super chill vibe, good for studying. Highly recommend

Bright Homawoo

Always greeted with kindness and smiles, this is simply the best coffee house in town. Aside from the excellent Java, the owner and workers have created a welcoming atmosphere that is guaranteed to keep you coming back. Great coffee, great prices, great staff-- amazing experience.


Was in Omaha to visit my niece and we tried this coffee shop. The coffee was excellent and the cinnamon bread was delicious. The two young ladies were so friendly and welcoming. We were able to bring the dog inside also. A great place to have a coffee and visit with family and friends. Very comfortable.

Eric Olsen

Very kind service, got my coffee order perfect and my apple turnover thingy was delicious. My son got the "apple-crumble-muffin" (his name for it, not official) and a mango smoothie. Best. Smoothie. Ever. OMG.

Tree of No Return

Cool place, great coffee, makes you want to go to the Himalayas.

Kody Clark

Great atmosphere, staff are super friendly, and drinks and pastries are top notch

Ryan Burnette

This is where I sit with my laptop when I stay at the Deco Hotel in Omaha. The coffee is great as well as the service. The food isn't bad. The atmosphere is also excellent.

dustin sjuts

Got to love himalayan street food

Nick Manhart

House cup of brew has distinctive personality.

Ajar Satyal

Best coffee place in their chai tea latte.

Love their Chai and the strong Coffee

Nathaniel Kalt

Best recommendations in town. The staff has never lead me wrong making reccomendations in new things to try!

Volha Siarheichyk

A cozy coffee shop with great coffee drinks, delicious sandwiches and friendly folks behind the counter!

Yveline Johnson

Great tasting coffee, chai and the sandwiches were of good size. Friendly customer service. My daughter and I enjoyed a game of checkers that was available on the table.

Zach Martin

Interesting coffee and family friendly. They have books, board games, and even let dogs in. Service was friendly and atmosphere wasn't overwhelming. Menu is limited to sandwich and bakery snacks. The coffee is definitely different than standard places, maybe an acquired taste. It's strong but not overly bitter, kind of a dirty/minty flavor to me. A sippy $2 coffee.

David Phillips

Delightful people and amazing coffee! Wide variety of latte options and teas. Very very good lunch options as well.

Joseph Kenney

Cool vibe, great coffee and excellent customer service are the hallmarks of Himalayan Java. You’ll always be greeted and quickly served a terrific drink, cup of soup or sandwich. For those working on the go, they even have a printer for guests.

Stephanie Carson

I am from Clarksville, Tennessee and just arrived to Omaha last night. I really wanted to visit a nice little coffee shop to sit and read before exploring the city. I ordered a medium iced coffee with vanilla, and a grilled chicken panini with provolone and whole wheat bread. Within 5 minutes they delivered my food to the table I was reading at. The coffee was unlike any coffee I've had before - it was AMAZING! The panini was very warm and the cheese was melted perfectly throughout the sandwich (not just in the middle) and they were very generous with the chicken. I enjoyed my visit there and will definitely come back before I leave and recommend everyone who comes to Omaha to give it a visit.

Forrest Paulson

Gem of a cafe!

Heather Tracy

Great atmosphere. Helpful, friendly staff. Really enjoyed the Honey Latte.

NE Senior Insurance

Espresso was good... A little more bitter than I'm used to to, but still good :)

Kael Stoaks

Drinks were great and the workers were very nice, attentive and helpful!

Emily Lamb Watson

Tried something new and had the honey latte, it was amazing. I love coming here, they always serve a fantastic cup of coffee!

Danielle Meier

Tomato soup may be my favorite tomato soup that I've ever had.


Best coffee downtown, hands down. Cool, laid back atmosphere as well

Cute cafe with excellent momo and friendly service!

Martin Brown

Best coffee in town! This place is so chill and so comfy, a nice place to read books and have some alone time. Highly recommended


I had their regular coffee n it was great. It was smooth n aromatic unlike anything I have tried before. Forget Starbucks - go Himalayan Java :-)

Dawaune Hayes

I absolutely adore Himalayan Java! Their honey lattes are smooth, flavorful, and not too sweet - highly recommend. Also the space is much cozier than expected with pleasant kitschy decor and warm woods.

Linda Marshall

A very special coffee shop! The presentation for a double espresso was lovely. Delicious coffee.

G Wheeler

Love the Honey Latte, will definitely go back.

Aakriti Sharma

The atmosphere is wonderful and the staff are so friendly. And they have the best chai latte I've ever tasted ❤ Seriously recommend this place.

Ali Martinez

Great coffee shop. Relaxed and comfortable!

Nicole Swaboski

Good blueberry scone. Iced latte was WAY too sweet.

Chris Breighner

Great atmosphere, friendly staff at the register, good prices, and outdoor seating. The "Honey Latte" is their staple drink, and it's pretty good. Definitely one of the best coffee shops downtown

Jonathan Lorber

Delicious coffee, great service and a cool relaxing place.

Nicole Lopez-Bettendorf

This place is so cool! They have a LOT of options on their menu, including both drinks and food, so everyone should be able to find something here. The decor is really cool with accents from adventures to the Himalayas.

Ellen Grennier

A little gem in downtown Omaha. Order the Momos, a Himalayan dumpling, you will NOT be disappointed. Iced Americano was excellent also. Good service + nice atmosphere.

Rick Lindsey

Service was good! Limited selection of eats, but I was there late too.

Patrick Schneider

Best americano in downtown Omaha. Consistently great service, regularly cleaned machines, and the lowest prices by a a good margin. Discounts given for lots of downtown businesses so be sure to mention one.

sapana shrestha

Place was soothing and very friendly staff, taste of coffee was great and excellent service.

Chris Wright

I'm so glad I found this place! We were trying to find a quick bite and drink before a show at the Orpheum, and it was perfect. Plenty of drink options, from cold to hot, smoothies, milk substitutes, sugar free, etc. I don't usually get cold drinks, and definitely not smoothies, but this day was a particularly hot one, so I ordered a strawberry smoothie, and it was SO refreshing! Standard coffee house snacks like bagels, muffins and shortbreads. They also have paninis for lunch, and some of the best dumplings I've EVER had! Dining area is small and cozy, but comfortable. They have games to play it you're just hanging out with some friends. The staff was friendly and warm. We're definitely going to be repeat customers!

Tim Meyer

Great Americano. Staff is very friendly and allowed us to try their coffee before ordering. Nice, comfortable space.

Robert Kinney

The coffee is good and a great place to relax.

Brandon Wipf

Good Americano. Discount for FNBO Employees. Try the chocolate croissant!

Nice coffee shop downtown with a good variety of snacks to eat.

Bruce Arant

The best coffee in Omaha and the friendliest place to sip it.

Courtney Heitman

I love this place. Best coffee and chai in Omaha!


The best coffee I tried in Omaha. The workers remember you after one visit and the environment is super cozy.

Kenneth Barnes

What a great little place. Terrific coffee, perfect croissant. Friendly people.

Thuy Kim

This place was the best part of my Omaha trip. The vibe is super chill and cozy. The staff were super friendly and made me feel very welcomed. I happened to be in town on a Wednesday so, of course, I had to try the momos for the first time. They were absolutely delicious. The filling was very well seasoned and the size were huge so I was stuffed after 8 of them. The best part though was the spicy sauce. I would have been glad to just buy the sauce in a bottle to put on everything. I also had a smoothie and some Himalayan soup. All good, all worth the treck in the snow. Wish we had one in Atlanta.


I'm not a big coffee drinker but this is some good coffee!

Grant Stanley

Highly recommend the apricot croissant. Had it this morning, and it was awesome. A great way to start the day.

Twisted Child

Great atmosphere! Cozy, comfy, warm and welcoming.

Mark Wong

Nice little quaint DT coffee shop. MoMo (Tibetan Dumplings) Saturdays are my favorite time to come here.

Timothy McAreavey

Friendly, comfortable setting...great people, coffee and pastries!

Uttam Sapkota

Best coffee shop in town. Make sure to try their dirty chai!

Donna Wright

Ran in to get two sandwiches to take to the CWS game. Employees were pleasant. Unfortunately, when I got to the ball park I looked inside and found two egg and sausage sandwiches instead of two turkey. Called and left a message no return call. Not only did they give me the wrong sandwiches and ones we could not eat the difference was $5. Will not be returning and will check sandwiches before I go.

Kevin Lee

We were looking for a place open before seven in the morning and were pleasantly surprised by the warmth and friendliness at Himalayan Coffee. Well made brews for sure.

Delta Skys

Loved it. Great coffee and terrific staff.

Matt Wittich

Good people, good food and atmosphere. My wife and I come often for the momos. She is from Kathmandu, and these are the best authentic Nepali momos we've found in the States. Very happy to have a place like this in town.

Fernando Bustamante

Awesome place with great people working there

Ronald Horner

Get the Himalayan Chai. You won't be disappointed.

Mark Smith

Honey latte was great. Good place to get a little work done in the middle of the afternoon.

Tim Nygaard

Nice eclectic space to visit, study, or just sit & enjoy your coffee. Coffee was good. I had a cup with a shot of espresso. It was good. Not life-changing, just good.

Phillip Smith

Great coffee, peaceful atmosphere, lots of books to read!

Tony Pardo

Slow but good coffee

Teresa Leishman

Great chi tea they grind there!

Todd Shonts

Great coffee tasty food.

Brianna Titone

We had the egg sandwich, vegan donuts, peach summer tea, and iced coffee and they were all excellent. Atmosphere is quaint and inviting with cozy chairs and work space. The egg sandwich was as excellent value, but not too notch. Still well worth it. Service was good and fast. This was a Saturday around noon.

Rachel Shenkle

The coffee is wonderful! They certainly know what they are doing and the customer service is great! Definitely would recommend this as a spot to hang out downtown.

Melinda Cummings

Great food and drink. Great atmosphere!!

Kajal Pradhanang

I'm a Nepali and when I was moving to Omaha I was sad about leaving my local momos haunt. Thankfully, I found their place the first day I moved to Omaha. They have the best momos in town. I also love their Honey Lemon Ginger tea and my hubby loves their Dirty Chai. The ambience in the cafe is awesome. I love chilling here with a nice cup of tea and about 3 to 4 plates of momos.


I have been here a couple times now. The place has a great staff & wide selection of coffees & snacks. The shop itself is quite large and has ample seating. Lots of board games, tables & space for books, laptops etc. On any trip in you can observe numerous college kids sipping coffee & doing homework etc. I personally enjoyed the view out front and the people watching from it. Downtown Omaha has no shortage of interesting personalities on display. I would definitely recommend this coffee shop if you're in the area. My only complaint would be the back in, parking out front. It's caused me to skip this place and go to another nearby coffee shop on more then one occasion.

Stephen Strube

Really good organic coffee. The feature Nepali street food on Wednesday and Saturday afternoon, called momos, which are fantastic steamed dumplings with a mild or spicy dipping sauce..

John Lourens

They made the best iced caramel latte I've ever had. Super friendly staff, cool atmosphere. Way prefer Himalayan Java over the chains down the street

Nick Stephenson

Really great coffee. Comfortable place for getting work done.

Christina Cravens

Excellent customer service. Nice settings.

Jonathan Rader

Super chill environment, friendly staff, great drinks, and great food! Definitely coming back here

Emily Castillo

Awesome place. Friendly

Jean Larroux

Cinnamon pound cake... nom nom nom. I would COME BACK to Omaha for this! I would have this shipped to me before I ordered Omaha Steaks online! Perfect fusion of sugar, almond, cinnamon and vanilla— it’s PERFECT. GREAT with coffee or solo!!

Michaela H

A really cute coffeeshop with the same homey feel as Caffeine Dreams or Aromas. The coffee really is superb and the service was fast and friendly. Haven't tried the pastries but they look delicious. They hire a diverse staff and serve just as diverse a community. My only gripe is that the chairs are pretty uncomfortable, so I'd probably grab this to go. I can't wait to see where this business goes!

BBB - Black Bottom Biscotti

The momo was absolutely delicious! The chicken was nicely season and the hot sauce was the perfect compliment to it. They also had mild sauce. I would definitely Gabe them again. I also liked the comfy atmosphere and excellent service.

Carla Maas

Very cozy plus great coffees & teas & reading material! I enjoy stopping in for a little R&R during as busy work day!

Brett Galvin

I couldn't get the free wifi to work. The coffee lacked the full flavor of, say, Starbucks', but it's cool that it came from Nepal.

Charles McKown

Omg looovveee it

Magie McCombs

Delicious coffee, friendly staff, comfortable atmosphere, and the food is good (but a bit pricy). I would highly recommend checking out this coffee shop, it’s one of my all-time favorites.

Erin Sample

Delicious coffee.

Jasmine Coffey

I ordered chicken and pork momos, a Tibetan dumpling served on Wednesdays. The service was wonderful and welcoming, my meal made promptly despite the business of the lunch hour.

Jerrod Danker

Best coffee in Omaha hands down.


Every visit to Himalayan Java is a great one. Staff is so friendly, food is amazing, coffee is the best in Omaha. And don't even get me started on how great the momo is!

Meera Tamata

My favorite is cafe latte , the service and ambience is awesome :)

Bryan S

Really good coffee. Cortado hits the spot. Tasty breakfast and friendly service. It is a quirky set up.

Diego Vieira

Smile face at cashier, good atmosphere, reasonable prices. My white chocolate mocha was perfect (not too sweet / not too hot). Perfect to drink right away. Score 100. Good job guys!


Terrific staff, fabulous coffee

Ashley Johnson

Great experience! Carmel latte was delicious. The staff were super friendly. I also had a delicious sandwich. The atmosphere is out of the usual, in a good way. Their menu is creative and inventive. I can see this being a new regular stop for me!
