HOW IT ALL BEGAN

The seed for Hub Cafe was planted at Branched Oak Farm, an organic dairy and creamery located just north of Lincoln, Nebraska.
In 2006, we began making cheese with the milk from Doug’s small herd of Jersey cows.  The dairy and creamery grew, as did the Dittman’s investment in their food community.  Opening Hub Cafe was a natural extension of their farm operation and a way to share the delicious bounty of their local food community with a larger audience.
Our approach to food is simple: use the best ingredients that we, as local farmers, have to offer. Sourcing from the farmers in our local food community allows us to serve the freshest, best-tasting produce, dairy products and meats to inspire creative dishes and connect us and our customers to our landscape and the seasons. Above all, we strive to treat our guests and staff alike with care, sharing our mission to transform the bounty of this land into exceptional modern farm fare.
Owned by Branched Oak Farm, we have the tools to give you the best dining experience you can find in town. We have passion for our craft, whether it be a finely brewed coffee or a homemade recipe from our top tier chef. Let us make our passion yours.
