First visit to Cafe Hollander, the throngs of people awaiting Sunday brunch was advertisment enough. Good food, one of the best bloodies I've ever had and some of the poorest service I've seen in my half-decade in the restaurant industry. Generally slow, the cake was taken when the server delivered our food to the table next to us, took 5 minutes to realize the mistake and (after informing the table that received our food immediately) proceeded to wait another 5 minutes before informing us of what we could already clearly see. Two stars is a sincere compliment to both the chefs and bar staff; had either not been present I'd never give this place another chance.

The only reason I'm giving this place 1 star is because the location is in my favorite part of Milwaukee. We arrived before 11AM to order breakfast. When I asked for the breakfast menu, the lady server said "your too late breakfast...sorry" then walked away. After waiting several minutes, she came back and said "are you ready to order?"in a very abrupt manner. I requested the manager. I noticed the servers bringing breakfast plates to tables all around me. When the manager arrived, he said,"Sorry, it is now 1 minute after 11AM, we stop serving breakfast! That did it. I didn't even have a chance to write a food review. I got up and left this place and went directly across the street to The Original Pancake House and not only got 5 star service, but the breakfast was superb! If the owner of this establishment happens to read this review, remember this all too important rule of business, CUSTOMER SERVICE IS EVERYTHING.

Went for breakfast. The restaurant was a little slow, but we got great service from when we walked through the door until we left! The food was hot and delicious. They had some really fun spins on some classic dishes. If you are up for new and interesting foods this is your place. This would be a great spot to visit at night because they had a really nice bar. Highly recommend.

Dropping kid off at school. This place was recommended to us. We went and had a great meal. Good burger and great caprese skewers. We will go again when in town. Server was attentive to our needs.

This place was awesome, I eat a lot of burgers and this one was the best I've had in a while. Both ingredients and prep were top notch. Price was reasonable and atmosphere was cool.
