A gem of a foodie little beer bar. I mean little in both sense of size and number of beers. While there are only a handful of taps (like 5) all are craft and generally local beer and mix in a dozen or so classic bottled beers (Chimay/Rochefort/Westmalle) you have their beer selection. They do offer wine and cocktails.

A tasty menu of fresh, local items. Sandwiches, salads, snack foods. A great place to share items. A great place to avoid the chain restaurant boringness and college bar drunkenness. It’s a chill spot… no TVs kind of place. A place to eat, drink and talk.

Bread & Cup is a great place. My favorite lunch spot in Lincoln. It’s not a “100 tap” beer bar juggernaut but it is a cool place for local beer and local foods!

vibe: 4 | quality: 4.25 | service: 4.75 | selection: 4 | food: 4.75

Atmosphere: u ate around 2:30 there weren't too many people however the layout is very casual and intimate.

Quality: the food was fantastic I had the roast beef sandwich, all the ingredients were fresh and extremely tasty. The beer was lovely they have 5 beers on tap all local brews.

Service: the system is strange you pay first then eat and drink but its nice once you understand how it works you can leave whenever you want no waiting on the check.

Selection. They have 5 local brews on tap.

Blue blood strong ale: my personal favorite. 4.25

Nebraska Brewing company Hop God: in my opinion anything with "hop" in the title is to much for me I feel like this brew is no exception the hops overpower the rest of the beer and I feel like they tried too hard 3.5

Zip line Copper Alt: my second favorite a nice bold (but not overpowering) copper ale has some serious flavor 4.0

Empyrean Oatlmeal Stout: not a huge fan of stouts so I don't think I can give this an honest rating but definitely worth a shot for stout lovers.

Lucky Bucket Wheat: a nice light wheat ale, has some fruity characteristics to it overall an average wheat ale 3.5

Food: the sandwich I had was great they have a decent variety of sandwiches and soups for lunch (didnt look at the dinner menu).

A: This is a great little foodie place off of haymarket in Lincoln; the atmosphere is casual yet intellectual and slightly sophisticated with seating at the bar, inside, and outside

Q: The beer (and food..and food made with beer) is fresh and well prepared

S: The service is a little confusing but once you figure out the pay first wait (and wait possibly a little bit), you are good to go

S: Not a ton of brews, but really solid ones; they had Boulevard Tank 7, Old Rasputin, Anchor Steam, and, I believe, St. Bernardus Abt 12 on tap plus some local Nebraska brews

F: Very good, and very fresh food--sandwiches and soup were great--especially the beer cheese soup made with Tank 7
