Was in town for 1/2 day to see Lincoln museum, but needed lunch and a coffee. We tried the nearby micro-brewery, but it had a 30min wait. This place rated well, was well positioned, and didn’t disappoint. Good coffee and BLT was OK.

The coffee is great and has a bohemian feel. It is attached to Obed & Isaac's Bocce ball beer garden, and has a great deal of things to do.

Excellent coffee in a historic house. Definitely not a chain! My latte was perfect. Lots of space to hang out and read or go outside to the patio.

The staff were helpful and recommended a superb cup of coffee that hit the spot. Several different rooms were available with comfortable seating to accommodate the patrons. Wm. Vans was busy, but there was plenty of seating.

Since Wm. Van's Coffee House is located across from where our tour of Lincoln's house began, we stopped in for a quick 'pick-me-up' cup of joe. Good coffee in a quaint setting even if a little on the expensive side.

We stopped by while waiting for a tour of Lincoln's home since it's right across the street from the visitors center. The coffee was lovely and the chair tea latte I had was the perfect temperature to drink right away.

Stumbled into this place while here for a tournament. Very glad I did! Super friendly people and very cozy environment. Excellent coffee - I highly recommend the Nitro Cold Brew - no ice or milk. There is a microbrew place next door with picnic tables,...More
