Eating while riding horseback was pioneered by the efficient Mongols, who also adjusted to reading, receiving haircuts, and filling out their taxes atop their four-legged mobiles. Enjoy the convenience of chairs and tables with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of fresh fare and drinks at 84th Street Café in La Vista.
Whipping up tasty bites made fresh from itch with all-natural ingredients, 84th Street Café provides a neighborhood spot for home-style meals without serving vinyl siding with a side of roof shingles. A welcoming ambience soothes hungry nerves and allows for laid-back taste-bud stimulation akin to licking batteries on a Tempur-Pedic bed. Amid a relaxing, window-wrapped atmosphere, patrons can sample a wide variety of big-portioned menu options for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and every imaginary meal in between. Try a tongue-tantalizing breakfast burrito platter with chorizo, fruit, and hash browns ($7.25), Luis’s famous spicy pork chili with a dish of rainbow sherbet ($4.25, lunch; $5.25, dinner), or beef pot pie topped with crispy cheddar ($8.50, $12.50). Drinks such as wine and desserts like the cheesecake of the day ($4.25) pair with each meal much better than a clingy barnacle.
A home-style meal away from home is not only enjoyable, it sparks comforting memories of steamy loafs of meat and grandpa’s stories of digging trenches in stylish trench coats during the trench-digging fad of ’49. Enjoy hearty fare and stimulating sips at 84th Street Café while reminiscing about the good ole days, when flat screens kept mosquitoes out and high-definition viewing meant reading a dictionary while perched atop a tree branch.
- It's clean, cheerful and modestly priced. It makes its own sauces and desserts and serves breakfast all day. It has a small but sporting selection of affordable wines. And the food's really, really good. – Nichole Aksamit, Omaha World-Herald
- This place is a find! Just a little neighborhood diner with good food, reasonable prices, great service and a pleasant atmosphere. – Captain Napkin, Urbanspoon
- Great food above what we expected, and real reasonable prices. The Huevo Rancheros was fantastic with some of the best pork chili (spicy!) I have ever had. – Allen H., Urbanspoon
