Unlike speedy in-and-out donut shops, cafés indulge languorous fantasies of sneaking off through misty European streets with the handsome tobacconist sipping an espresso mysteriously in the corner. Caffeinate and mentally rendezvous with today's Groupon. For $5, you get $10 worth of coffee, tea, and café fare at Caffeine Dreams, located by the University of Nebraska Medical Center.
Without coffee, society would literally crumble under the weight of unsound buildings erected by dozing construction workers and unfocused architects. Caffeine Dreams helps buttress the fragile social fabric with a bevy of beverages and grub. Amidst a relaxing environment of cozy exposed-brick walls and wooden tones, slow-sipping patrons can nurse in-house roasted coffee that’s available in Fair Trade organic form. Grab a double-sized cup of one of their sweet caffeinated concoctions like the Muse with milk, espresso, chocolate, caramel, and vanilla ($3.75); the Day Dreamer with milk, espresso, chocolate, praline, and caramel ($3.75); or a classic double-shot of espresso ($1.65). A double-sized mate latte ($2.85) will soothe the pipes of tea fans with the earthy Argentinean blend of tea and milk. Please your taste magnets with sweet and savory treats, including the hummus plate ($5.75), the Thai chicken salad ($5.75), and the cinnamon roll ($2.50). Caffeine Dreams also offers an outdoor-garden-patio area for warm-weather sips and good books, and plenty of parking for El Caminos and batmobiles.
Power your bone box with a body-buzzing concoction of mystical beans that heightens alertness and packs enough energy to fuel a pogo-stick marathon. Thanks to Caffeine Dreams, patrons will enjoy increased productivity and calmed nerves to weather yet another day of fluorescent-tinged cubicle jockeying. Caffeine Dreams is open late to help fuel last-minute cramming sessions and arduous Power Point prepping.

- The Caffeine Dreams ladies know how to make a cappuccino! These days most are like a latte with a half-inch less liquid, but a Caffeine Dreams cap is made in the right proportions and allows the symphony of flavors - sweet steamed milk and dark espresso - to play itself out on the palate. Excellent! Baked goods are tasty and well-prepared. Great place! – David, Yahoo! Local
