REVIEWS OF Meadowlark Coffee & Espresso IN Nebraska

Aairo Heart

Nice little hangout joint, makes pretty good coffee. I know no one will care except for me, but they serve fair trade coffee which is a big bonus for me. My only complaint is that sometimes they're really fast getting my coffee out, and sometimes they'll take a solid twenty minutes, both times happen when I'm alone in line. Also, not a huge fan of their food, though that's just a personal taste. You should try the breve.

Sam Johnson

I had an excellent, strong, cortado here. The coffee is tasty, well made, and the the furniture is quite nice compared to many independent coffee shops I visit across the country. I would highly recommend a stop if traveling through the area.

Mark Holmes

Good place to grab a cup of Joe after a run

Justin Beetem

Amazing coffee and drinks, also a very friendly staff. My new favorite coffee shop

Chel Griffith

I love this place... Except they are a little pricy. Great coffees and pastries with it's own distinctive "coffee shop" flair. They also feature art by local artists too.

caitlin little

Nice coffee shop. Fairly good coffee and treats. Sometimes has local musics.

Chris Niemann

It's good.

Sarah Jane Stevens

When I moved to Lincoln in 2011 one of my top priorities was to find a replacement coffee hangout for the coffee joint/second home I had in my previous city. I spent some time at 2 other popular places for caffeine in town, and the atmosphere in each was reminiscent of a library. Quiet. Serious. Dull. Then I found Meadowlark. Friendly, fun, relaxed and the beautiful sound of lively conversations and laughter. Looking back, I can honestly say that nearly every friendship I've been blessed with in Lincoln was made at Meadowlark.

Patrick Burns

Great coffee and even better hot chocolate saved my night when I was there last week.

Robin Nolte

By far the best coffee shop in Lincoln!! They have great coffee and they have artwork from local artists. Overall, they clearly support shopping local, which I really appreciate.

Ron Deremer

One of my favorite places in Lincoln. Laid back, coffee and a few muffin type food.

JJ Sprinkel

Barista who was wearing goth-dark lipstick was remarkably discourteous. Customers sitting outside were in an argument; with one gentleman acting in a threatening manner. This creates concerns in regard to the safety of my children who were with me.

Shelly Nielsen

Great coffee house and place to study, have conversation or read. Love it!

Tigereyes Baylor

Tanith McCloud

Pour over is awesome! Can't wait to try them all

Destry Lagemann

Ordered two medium drinks and received them in these tiny cups that were most definitely the small size. My wife and I ordered two completely different drinks, yet they tasted exactly the same as if they just put coffee in each and added the different flavors we ordered. $8 for two SMALL drinks is insane. Will not be back here. I’d recommend going elsewhere.

Pamela Brown

I love this place

Trey Bickford

Amazing place to hangout and absolutely delicious!

Andrew Tiedje

Great place to sit and relax while enjoying a coffee

Sandra Miller

Nice staff.

Lance A White

Nice little spot. Parking is sometimes tight but the coffee and service is good.


Desperately NEED more than 1 barista on the weekends before 9am. One barista cannot make drinks fast enough and the line is very long.

McKenna Keenan

Meadowlark is one of my favorite coffee shops. The prices are reasonable, staff is always friendly. It's a great place to meet a friend for coffee or go alone. My daughter goes alot to work on her homework. It's one of the few places she feels comfortable being alone at. It's got a very chill atmosphere.

Cat Rock

Good coffee and great price, but not the best atmosphere. Acoustics are terrible so the music, scooting chairs, quiet conversations, every sound reverberates and seems very loud. The seats need some tlc and probably reupholstering, as they're pretty uncomfortable on bare thighs. Would return, but not my favorite coffee shop.

Chrystal Brock

Went in for a cup of coffee with my daughter and mother. A wonderful place to sit and chat. Cozy atmosphere and great service.

John Housel

Great little place to get a cup of coffee

J.L. Schmidt

Funky atmosphere, friendly staff, good coffee. Enough said? Oh, and throw in a diverse clientele which just adds to the caffeine and contemplation conundrum. Love this place.

Christine Cary

Meadowlark has the atmosphere of a quintessential American coffeehouse, with old mismatched furniture, progressive newspapers, community bulletins and buy-trade papers, local art, board games, and plants. Of course the coffee is great, too.

Dan Klein Jr

Seems like plenty of parking regardless of the time of day, lots of seating for morning coffee or meetings, really good coffee. Keep doing what you're doing

Jeff Muehlbauer

Meadowlark serves wonderful coffee. The staff are polite and friendly and quick to change out empty coffee dispensers. There is a library which has something for everyone, young and old. It’s a great place to relax in the morning and get your caffeine buzz!

Tyler Kroeker

Stop in for a great coffee or relax reading a book. A great duo with Open Harvest next door.

scuba melvo

great selection of coffees.

Brady Shubert

Drip drip drip with that local coffee sip. Make a trip. Take a dip. Dippin pastries taking sips. Coffee is great #vegetarianfriendly #localspot

Austin Wiese

Good people, unique environment. My most preferred drip coffee in Lincoln. Locally owned, it doesn't get any better for my liking. Employees are very personable, and I love the late hours. Also free refills on drip coffee after 10pm, if you can handle it.

Chris Vance

I like the iced coffee and I have met new friends and long-time friends are happy to have a coffee and watching traffic on the patio

Sara Moore

Tasty, affordable coffee in a chill environment.


Coffee that Actually tastes great without all the "frills", but they have them if you want. I'd recommend the Valencia! My fav. The service is incomparable. Great job Meadowlark crew! ☕️

Russell Pittman

Always a pleasure. I like their coffee, chocolate covered espresso beans and brownies.

Mina Holmes

Meadowlark is my favorite coffee shop in town. Reliable wifi, cheap coffee, tasty treats (especially those raspberry scones), and friendly baristas.

Marcus Epp

Just great coffee and great service.

Melissa Brown

Small locally owned company!

Jennifer Buol

Great coffee! Dairy free options. Good atmosphere, friendly staff. This is a return visit if many return visits to come!

Jake Meador

It's our neighborhood coffeeshop and I'm a huge fan. Hours are really nice for late night runs after kids are in bed plus the space is great for meeting with a friend or doing some reading on your own. Of the specialty drinks on the menu, my favorite is the Valencia--an orange, chocolate mocha, basically. It's spectacular hot or iced.

Jeff Ghoti

See and hear live music and get a good cup of coffee.

Chris Eiel

The staff were very nice. Andrew Peterson's art work was awesome. Go have coffee and enjoy the artwork!

Brady Sullivan

Gave me some simple syrup when I needed it most. Tried Yerba mate here at the suggestion of the staff to my happy surprise. The prices are good and they also have a good bean selection for my fresh ground needs

Will C.

One of my favorite places to hang out in Lincoln

Ayrat Shiriev

Nice place in this area

Linda A

I love Meadowlark.. I've been going there since they first opened.. It's my first choice "go to" when meeting up with friends for coffee. Cinnamon rolls are yummy too.

Bonnie Parish

It was so nice to come in today and see Jim and Abby! They always make me feel lucky to be here. It's great having the new cooler with fresh sandwiches, pie, carrot cake and all the other goodies. It's like coming to see friends.

Harmony Dinslage

Best coffee and atmosphere in Lincoln!

Tom Anderson

Excellent customer service. Warm and welcoming. Very nice place to sip coffee and talk to friends.

I love the Meadowlark! Great staff. Nice selection of tea. We usually take things to go--it would be lovely to have time to hang out! Near South is a wonderful location.

The best coffee shop ever.

Good coffee, good folks. Came to Lincoln from Seattle looking for a similar quality coffee scene. Adam behind the counter has the right spirit, and Anna made our drinks the way we asked. Lots of space for conversation and work. We will be coming back.

Robert Gropp II

Great quiet place to hang out. Pay the employees more, please.

Scott Bennett

Delicious coffee. Great place to get work done.

Mark Pate

Best coffee in Lincoln

Mark Whaley

The Meadowlark is a great place to go both for a good hot drink or small snack or just to hang out with friends or to get a little work done or enjoy yourself using the Wi-Fi. The Meadowlark seems to almost alway draw brisk business, mostly from residents of the near South neighborhood if Lincoln, with small groups sitting around socializing over their coffee and singles working on their laptops or tablets.

Alan Blair

Great coffee drinks! Secret tip: if you tell the barista that Meadow Larks are your favorite bird, they will offer you a double shot of espresso at regular price! Relaxing atmosphere and nice coffee convos.

Patrick Harlan

Not bad

Robin Harney

Perfect latte

Jonathan Reyes

I love having Meadowlark in the neighborhood.

Erica Bartz

Meadowlark is my absolute favorite coffee shop. We regularly drive all the way across town just to hang out there. The baristas are friendly and remember you if you're a regular. The atmosphere is very relaxed and comfortable. It's like being at home.

William Spicer

Meadowlark used to be a wonderful place to go enjoy good espresso drinks and treats. The staff was very friendly and everyone working there seemed to just be laid back and eager to serve. Unfortunately, this is no longer the case. It is under new management since its reopening and the attitude you are now greeted with is "what do you want!" The first time I went in after its reopening I was met with this attitude. I wrote it off, figuring that maybe the girl was just having a bad day. I have been in about 10 times since, naively each time hoping for the customer service I was accustomed to under the old management. Each time its been the same "I'm stressed out and have things to do, what do you need!" vibe. I will not be back, sadly, after years of recommending it to people. There are plenty of good coffee houses in town and Meadowlark may be among them again some day once the management realizes the importance of good customer service.

Aubrey Birch

Relaxed and welcoming environment. Great place to study or just relax with friends, I just wish they had more space!

Jackie Murray

Delicious chi tea latte and coffee! Nice atmosphere to sit and talk to friends.


Stopped in for a mocha and was glad that I did. The place has a nice parking lot and a great bicycle parking area made from an old playground roundabout. Inside was really a large space, lots of tables and a nice, talkative guy to take my order. The mocha was great and the location is about a mile from the Sunken Garden.

William Koch

Wonderful service and great coffee. Go there to study, finish homework, catch up on work, or just sit and think.

Joshua Barnett

Using organic/eco products doesn't excuse bad service and mediocre coffee. You haven't done your "good deed" for the day.

Bianca Andrade

Great tea, friendly staff.

James Coulter

The best coffee shop in Lincoln

Aaron Price

Meadowlark is one of the oldest coffee houses in Lincoln, and offers a nice variety of quality coffee blends and espresso drinks. It's a great place to study, relax with friends, or enjoy local music and art. Meadowlark is also conveniently located next to a co-op and other great small Lincoln businesses and public transportation. There is also a great bike rack area with plenty of space to securely lock your bike up.

Nanci Kettler

Great atmosphere

Katie Yunghans

Beth Philson

Bright and comfortable gathering place. Frequent bands to enjoy while you slowly sip your coffee or take advantage of one of the board games or books provided. Grab your friends and stay a while.

Rebecca Reiter

Decent coffee, reasonable ambience.

Jennifer McKitrick

Relaxing atmosphere, friendly service

Carrie Hansen

At times, extremely busy and hard to find seating, but the coffee is always good. Nice variety of locally made pastries & treats. If you're not sure what you want, you can describe your tastes to the Baristas and they will make you something special. They've never steered me wrong.

Stephanie Mitchell

It's pricier than Starbucks, but I assume that's because of the fair trade coffee and organic ingredients. If that matters to you, this is your go-to coffee shop. I can say for certain that the flavor of iced coffee is 3 times more boldly flavored than Starbucks, even though it costs about a dollar more, and is in a smaller cup. Was too delicious for me not to get it every now and then as a treat. Atmosphere is kinda drab, a cliche coffee shop, and the wait staff was upbeat and happy to make your coffee until you tip, then he didn't feel the need to put on a happy act anymore.

kevin g

You always have to walk through a cloud of cigarette smoke when you are entering or exiting exiting this place. they should build a smoking area on the side of the building
