Last Thursday, the Friends in Pie Places descended on Lincoln’s Bread & Cup for pizza, pints, and picky eating. Bread & Cup usually falls outside the purview of the Friends in Pie Places, as they’re more of a bistro/fine dining place. However, on Thursday nights, they turn up their ovens and dust off their pizza pans, and become fair game. Here are our reviews, the reviews of the Friends in Pie Places.
Bread and Cup was an interesting place. I’m told that pizza is not a daily occurrence here, which makes it a rather elusive occasion. This is further exemplified being a resident of Omaha, as I don’t get a chance to make it down to Lincoln during the work week often.
None the less, I was quite blown away by the pizza. I will definitely come here again. The prices were a little on the steep end ($12 for a 12” pie), but I’m willing to look past that because the pizza was absolutely amazing. We tried each type of pizza served which included the Bacon Goat, Mac and Cheese Pizza, Potato Rosemary, Pepperoni, and Three Cheese. Unfortunately they not able to make us the Season Wild Card, which I believe was a type of Barbecue Steak pizza. This did not deter me from enjoying every last bite of the pizza I tried, however.
I think my favorite of the night was a toss up between the Bacon Goat and the Pepperoni. The garlic white sauce as a base coupled with the bacon was amazing. I really enjoyed the addition of cream cheese on the pepperoni pizza as well. As far as the crust, I felt they were all cooked nearly to perfection. The only pizza I needed to use a fork for was the pepperoni (but I won’t hold it against it).
It was a very fun night, I rather enjoyed my time in Lincoln. Games were played (I’m pretty sure I lost the name game), stories were told, and good times were had by all.
