The Keeping Room

Fresh, Seasonal, Regional

Fabulous food and drink with a family friendly atmosphere. We use only the best ingredients, many grown by local producers. Enjoy lunch, a glass of wine or local craft beer, and homemade desserts at one of the best places to eat in Nebraska City.

The Keeping Room is in the heart of historic downtown Nebraska City. Our story began in 2005 with antiques, holiday and home décor expanded to include The Café in 2014 and expanded again to include The Upstairs Clothing Boutique in 2018.

The Keeping Room is a destination for boutique shopping and delicious hometown dining. It has a reputation for creating lasting memories with friends and family.

    We moved to Nebraska City after Bryan retired from 26 years in the Army. I had been in education, administration and a stay-at-home mom of three great kids. We lived in Europe and many places in the United States. We enjoyed exploring nature and history everywhere. I love The Keeping Room because it encompasses my favorite things; gardening, homemade food, antiques, unique treasures and people. It has been a blessing to build relationships with our staff, local customers and the tourists over the years.
