Great place to hang out with an amazing beer selection. Stopped by to talk after a movie across the street, and we got a couple of the Belgian style beers thru had on tap. The beer list is extensive, it's a small book and it has a table of contents. Great atmosphere, great beer, great service!

Excellent in every way. Wonderful atmosphere inside and outside. Warm dark woods and pleasant music. Seating upstairs, by the windows, at the bar, on the sidewalk or on the patio. Very clean and smelled wonderful. Service was prompt, professional and friendly. No Food is not that expensive considering local prices and the high quality of ingredients and creative preparation. It is hard to find places that serve fresh ground prime hamburger and are also willing to cook it to only medium rare. (You have to make sure you trust the cleanliness of the place to avoid food poisoning. I always check the bathrooms to see how clean they are. Only if they are spotless will I order medium rare ground meat.) Everything was prepared wonderfully and delicious. Highly recommend!

Excellent food, unusual dishes, and a good selection of vegan/vegetarian options. The beer menu is one of the most extensive that I've ever seen. Ambiance is college/casual with a bicycle theme--a bit loud if you are planning conversation, but pleasant and relaxed. Highly recommended.

The atmosphere, servive, food selection, and beer selection make Cafe Hollander a true gem. Their burgers are fantastic, and their Belgian beer selection is on point. If you want a Qwak, come here!

Delicious food, great drinks and nice atmosphere. Really something for everyone here. The food and drinks are so amazing they completely make up for the hit or miss service. Don't get me wrong, everyone here is super friendly, I've just had a couple space cadet situations happen. The bartenders are usually working much harder than the rest of the wait staff. All things considered though, this place is am east side gem.

Same exact food as Cafe Benelux. Food is alright, but a bit pricy. Staff can be hit or miss
