A Good Opening
Good Evans Breakfast & Lunch is a brand-new concept that opened it’s first locations this November and December in Lincoln and Kearney, Nebraska. The concept is owned by PepperJax Development, LLC and was created and developed by owner, Brett Weis and team. This is the second restaurant to come under the PepperJax Development group as they own 34 PepperJax Grill locations across the Midwest.
The concept brings a chef-inspired theme to their menu and elevates the breakfast and lunch sector with their atmosphere and offerings. Executive chefs Sara and Travis Evans developed the Good Evans menu using quality ingredients and a balance of flavors in every plate.
Food isn’t their only focus; Good Evans is also roasting their own coffee beans that are used for their coffee menu. The Kearney Good Evans location has a roaster in-house that you will find at the coffee bar. Master Roaster and General Manager, Ben Polk takes great care in creating custom blends with a variety of beans they are sourcing from around the world. The coffee offerings range from the expected such as a traditional house brew, to more fancier options like lattes and pour-overs. A limited offering of adult beverages will join the menu lineup soon featuring items like mimosas, bloody marys, and brunch beers.
In the non-traditional offerings, both locations have a retail section near their entrance that consist of handmade accessories. Like their coffee beans, these items are all fair trade and sales directly support the people who make them. One of the organizations, whose items are represented is called Elevate and the items are crafted in India however, Elevate’s founders are from and live in Nebraska so it is a very feel-good set-up to supporting businesses, organizations, and communities both near and far. Items for sale include wallets, purses, bracelets, earrings, key chains, and cards. They will also be selling their coffee beans in retail for guests to purchase and enjoy at home.
Whether it is a quiet cup of coffee or a family brunch, Good Evans is a great choice. With a little something for everyone on the menu and an environment that welcomes all, you will be sure to have a great start to a GOOD day at Good Evans.
