Cure for Cupcake Cravings; Jones Bros now has West Omaha Location
Many Cupcake, wine, and food aficionados are going to be excited about this! Now with a location on 180th and West Center, Jones Bros is a local favorite for Cupcakes and Coffee and also has an extended breakfast menu. The coffee on deck here is George Howell Terroir, and the baristas have killer training and brewing skills. The cupcake flavors are all to die for; items like turtle brownie, red velvet, good ole vanilla, and decadent New Year are just some of the offerings available that all the patrons at the Aksarben location craved daily. It only makes sense that those a little further West would want to have a close go at this awesome and funky spot. The Last time in we sampled a chocolate mint and smores options, the flavors of the day on Wednesday. Noticing that the root beer float flavor was on tap for Fridays, I realized that it could surely be at the top of my list for an excursion.
Some don’t realize that wine offerings really do go with cupcakes, as many Omaha natives discovered when Jones opened in Aksarben. German Rieslings, California Zinfandel, and organic Oregon Pinot are some of the pairings you can get your hands on here. From Noisio Spa Mezzocorona Italy, the Pinot Grigio-Barone Fini is also a great choice. Pledging to offer the freshest ingredients available, there are soups, salads, and scrumptious desserts made daily at Jones; one of my favorites is the Southwest Salad, with chipotle chicken, black bean and corn relish, and avocado ranch with crispy tortilla strips. For deli sandwich selection, there is the turkey club, ham and swiss, roast beef, vegetable, and 4 cheese margherita. The margherita has sliced heirloom tomatoes, basil, a 4 cheese blend and milk mozzarella. The roast beef is a primo London Broil roast beef with lettuce, tomato, horse radish mayo and provolone cheese, a warm rounding off to any lunch or dinner trip.
The paninis are another tasty feature of the menu, with attractions like the Italian grinder, Turkey avocado provolone, 4 cheese grilled cheese, and the Cuban. The Cuban being my favorite at Granite City, I tried this Panini back in December and was very impressed. The spiced pork in this selection has an amazing texture, and the Parisian baguette is the perfect outer keeper of this treasure. The taste of a Cuban is much different than other typical fare, and can leave you daydreaming of the breeze in Miami and Latin music in the South Beach night. Also offering a portabella melt, baked ziti, and 5 star mac, the decisions are many here in this locale with a super cool and urban feel. Many had previously stepped into a joint and wished that they could get more than just the sugary and delectable cupcake offering; Jones Bros absolutely delivers 100 percent on the other options. Feeling in a rush? You can stop in and pick up a variety pack of cupcakes to take home with you from Jones, this favorite sugar and substance oasis in Omaha.
