It’s impossible to take in and explore everything Midtown Crossing has to offer in a single day, but this handy guide will help you to navigate a day-trip here. From a warm coffee to a night at the movies, here is our suggestion for a day in Midtown Crossing.
Start the morning with a warm beverage from Culprit Café
Whether you’re an early riser or late snoozer, Culprit Café is the perfect spot to start the day. They have coffees ranging from americanos to macchiatos, all featuring their signature, rich blend of beans. Not a coffee fan? They also have a delicious assortment of teas ranging from chai lattes to their signature London Fog. If these drinks have your taste buds watering, wait until you try one of their breakfast sandwiches. … Overall, a perfect way to start your day.
Browse The Afternoon and hutch
Head to The Afternoon and browse their always-changing supply of fun gifts and trinkets including hand-warmer mugs and eccentric home finds. Then on to hutch – from trendy furniture and lighting, to rugs and art, and even a full succulent bar where you can plant your very own succulent!
Sit down for lunch
Stomach growling? Luckily Midtown Crossing has the best dining experiences near Downtown Omaha and the University Nebraska Medical Center. We offer all types of dining experiences - as well as outdoor patios overlooking Turner Park. Click here for neighborhood lunch favorites.
Stroll Turner Park with your favorite person or pet
