Nebraska City has always been blessed with some great dining places..even way back in the late 40's and early "50's..Ill try to remember the top 15-20 that i can remember..a lot of these i remember since i delivered the News-Press to most of these.ALL are gone now.
BENNET CAFE Under the old skating rink there was a cafe..I think run by the Bennet family..boy could she fry up a great burger.
WILSON CAFE.. located next door to the old City Laundry, owned by Neil Wilson..Tey took special care of me on Saturdays when i went in to collect for the News-Press..At that time carriers collected every saturday to pay their bills..sometimes people would pay by the month to save us coming back
DAWSON OIL south of town had a nice cafe,where most of the high schools haunted after ball games..
