What You'll Get
Before breakfast was the first meal of the day, it was part of a midday supermeal—Dinner, Breakfast, Nash & Young. Give breakfast’s solo work its proper respect with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $24 worth of breakfast, lunch, Sunday brunch (excluding the early bird 8–9 a.m. brunch special), or Saturday dinner at Heartland Café in historic downtown Elkhorn.
Heartland Café's assortment of American comfort food, including fresh quiche, pancakes, and hearty sandwiches, earned it a write-up in Food & Spirits culinary magazine. Breakfast is served all day along, letting diners enjoy bakery-fresh items such as the quiche florentine ($8.99), a combination of spinach, bacon, chopped mushrooms, and eggs baked in a homemade pie crust, drizzled with a hollandaise sauce and accompanied by a side of country potatoes. The Sunday brunch buffet ($12.95 adults; $5.10 children ages 5–10; children under 5 free) topples tables with all that mouths care to eat and drink, featuring rotating selections that could include scrambled eggs, deep-fried shrimp, biscuits and gravy, and french toast, along with a pastry, dessert, and fresh-fruit bar. Midday meals from the breakfast and lunch menu, such as the aged and marinated hot roast beef ($6.99/half; $8.49/full), can abate noontime hunger. Meanwhile, on Saturday evenings culinary maestros conduct a dinner menu filled with soups, salads, sandwiches, cocktails, and burgers, such as the Blues burger ($8.49), topped with bacon, blue cheese, hot sauce, blue-cheese dressing, and potato chips, that inspires tone-deaf taste buds to serenade incisors with John Fogerty lyrics.
On summer Saturday nights, Heartland Café hosts a live blues concert series that can be enjoyed on the outdoor patio while sipping glasses filled with wine, beer, cocktails, or coffee ($3.50–$6). A cover charge applies after 7 p.m., and reservations, like wearing chain mail while wrestling a bear, are highly recommended but not required.

About Heartland Cafe
Named business of the year in 2010 by Heritage Nebraska, patrons sit down at the Heartland Cafe for breakfast and lunch amid traces of local history inside a building constructed in 1919. In this setting, diners dig into fresh-made pancakes and made-to-order omelets, conversing and creating new memories. The quiche florentine brims with bacon, spinach, and mushrooms baked in a housemade pie crust and covered with hollandaise. For lunch, the cooks whip up reuben sandwiches, fish ‘n’ chips, and elk burgers. Heartland Cafe's owner, Sharon Janovsky, was also named 2012 business person of the year by the Western Douglas County Chamber of Commerce for the cafe's active role in the community, such as hosting the annual tree lighting ceremony.
