Highlights

Sometime leading up to World War II, a slim, witty, former army clerk named Harold Halstead worked at a local shoe store where he met a heckuva woman named Pauline Palmer who worked at the federal land bank as a legal secretary. Pauline was too darling for Harold to resist marrying before being sent off to the war. Once Harold returned from the war, he began working for The Harkerts Hamburgers chain of diners and discovered his love for the restaurant business. When Harkerts went out of business, he joined up with two fellow business men to form the Koffee House Systems of diners. With Pauline in command of the books and a knack for knowing which homemade meals and desserts were a hit with the crowds, Koffee Houses began their reign along busy Omaha streets such as Dodge, Locust, Leavenworth and Ames Street. After several years, the trio decided to split up. Confident in what he knew best, Harold chose to open his very own café at 8505 North 30th street in Florence. The established and now popular misspelling of the word koffee was a namesake that Harold decided to keep. Their oldest son John, followed in his fathers footsteps and began cooking at the age of 14. Soon after, their 2nd son Tom joined the ranks by washing dishes and their four daughters (Judy, Nancy, Susie and Beth) rounded out the employee roster as wait staff, cashiers and table bussers. Harold expanded his business by acquiring two truck stops in western Nebraska. After a period of about 6 years, Harold made the decision to release the two businesses in western Nebraska and focus on his family and the café in Florence. In 1968, Harold moved The Koffee House to the corner of 30th and State Street, added his name, stuck up an orange FOOD sign and Harolds Koffee House has made history ever since.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wait staff is very friendly .really great food and coffee. Apr 8, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by It was a busy time, and our server had to clear up a matter with some one else's bill, and I think she was somewhat distracted by that. She did ask if she could get us other things, and wished us a good day. It was nice to get a salad with the burger and fries. Mar 28, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by I had to ask someone if I should seat myself after 5 min of just standing there watching staff pass me by. The waitress was nice and helpful, but the food was not what I expected. Pretty disappointed overall. Mar 26, 2014
