1. Stay Away From Processed Food

The Mill Coffee and Bistro to open at Nebraska Innovation Campus

Daniel and Tamara Sloan, owners of The Mill Coffee and Tea, announced their plans to open a third Lincoln location at Nebraska Innovation Campus this summer.

The new shop, to be called The Mill Coffee and Bistro, will feature The Mill’s signature coffees and teas as well as an expanded food menu of breakfast items, lunch items, small plates, snacks, wine and beer.

The Mill Coffee and Tea is a small-batch craft coffee roaster, espresso bar and tea house that was started in Lincoln in 1975. The original store is now located at 800 P St. in the Historic Haymarket.

Daniel Sloan said it has been 17 years since The Mill opened its second location, on Prescott Avenue near South 48th Street – and that he believes the new spot at NIC is the next compelling opportunity for The Mill.

“The new Mill Coffee and Bistro at Nebraska Innovation Campus will allow us to provide the warm, welcoming, collaborative community we love to create in an environment that strives to enhance and support education, research and innovation,” he said.

The Bistro’s menu will include a full line of pastries, quiche, breakfast burritos, yogurt parfaits and fresh fruits. Additional menu items will include salads, soups and hot and cold sandwiches, a variety of small plates and snacks. The Bistro will also offer cask wine, a selection of bottled wine, and local and regional craft beers.

“We are so fortunate to have The Mill Coffee and Bistro locate at NIC,” said Dan Duncan, NIC executive director. “The Bistro will play a significant role in creating the culture and social activities key to developing an environment of innovation on campus.”

Construction on the new NIC restaurant space will start this month. The Bistro will be on the first floor of the campus’ north Innovation Commons building. The space will feature dining, meeting and gathering space. Guests will find soft seating for small group gathering, a communal table, audio-visual equipment for small meetings and free WiFi.

NIC is a research campus designed to facilitate new and in-depth partnerships between the university and private-sector businesses. At full build-out, NIC will be a 2.2-million square-foot campus with uniquely designed buildings and amenities that inspire creative activity and engagement, transforming ideas into global innovation.
