Pepe's Open for Brunch First Sunday of the Month

4 Posted on 11 / 03 / 2013

We enjoyed a veggie burrito at Pepe's brunch for the first time. It was large and came topped with cheese and guacamole, delicious and very filling. Some other offerings were Huevos Rancheros with egg and cheese, a tostada, sweet potato and cheese quesadillas, and dessert. Most of the entrees can be made vegan and I hope Pepe will add a vegan huevos ranchero or scramble option. Pepe does a lot for the Lincoln community and it is a pleasure to support his business. His guacamole recipe is in the new cookbook Isa Does It! Good stuff!

Pros: Fresh food, Local business and supports other locals, Inexpensive

Pepe's is one of the best places in Lincoln to visit. He will make anything he has on hand for you if you have an odd request. All of his ingredients are fresh and organic, and he never microwaves. His sweet potato quesadillas are AMAZING (and vegan)! Definitely try this place.

Pros: Tasty and Organic, Friendly, Local

great food, but no raw menu

The menu was quite small, and little to no grain-free options. She seemed bemused when I asked about a raw menu (none, apparently). I drove out of my way to find some raw food and came up empty, but we did eat some delicious local mexican-inspired dishes, with plenty of raw greens on the side.

Pros: fresh local greens
Cons: no raw menu

This is one of lincolns true gems. Absolutely fantastic food, dessert, and non alcoholic drinks made by someone who cares about locally sourced food. All vegetarian, vegan by request, and the menu changes with the availability of ingredients. Pepe knows what he is doing.

When I stopped here, they were closed. They weren't supposed to be closed. No explanation. I waited around a good ten minutes at the art gallery. Pepe never showed, and I went elsewhere.

Pros: Not open when advertised

I heard multiple people in the restaurant exclaim, how great the food was, and couldn't believe it was vegetarian. I ordered vegan style and it was just as exceptional.

Pros: Delish, super friendly, Supports sustainability in multiple ways
