Nebraska Breakfast

The Nebraska Breakfast originated in 1943. It was the idea of U.S. Senator Hugh Butler, who wanted to meet informally each week to discuss legislation with other members of the Nebraska Congressional delegation. Members of the Nebraska delegation began inviting guests to the weekly gatherings, and soon a tradition was born.

The Nebraska Breakfast, now in its sixth decade, is the oldest and only ongoing state gathering for constituents on Capitol Hill. Every Wednesday morning when the House and Senate are both in session, Nebraskans visiting the nation's capital can meet and visit with their Nebraska Congressional Delegation. The breakfast is held in the Dirksen Senate Buffet on the "B" level of the Dirksen Senate Office Building from 8:00 – 9:00 a.m. Please see schedule below showing which dates the breakfast is held.

If you would like to make a reservation, please fill out this form at least one week in advance. The cost of the continental breakfast depends upon your individual food choices. All Nebraskans visiting Washington, D.C., and their guests, are welcome to attend the Nebraska Breakfast.
