Good food in a historic part of Wauwatosa. Architecturally unique building with dining inside and outside. Great variety to choose from. We had beignets. I had the blue berry pancakes with an awesome blueberry butter.

The bloodys, the breakfast dishes, the burgers, the signature salad... all delicious. It also has a great atmosphere and a good beer selection. It's best to avoid this place on holidays such as Mother's Day, however, as it becomes SO crowded that getting your food may take well over an hour.

My family and I enjoy eating here. We have been here multiple times and have never had a bad meal. Great Sunday brunch food but I absolutely love their burgers.

We all had different things and everyone enjoyed their meals. I particularly love their BLTs. The atmosphere is casual and they have nice outdoor seating next to the river. Recommend for anyone who loves good beer or who has a family and wants a casual dinner.

We went to lunch on a Wednesday at 11:30. Beat the rush. Wait staff was friendly. Food came out quick. Café Burger was excellent.

I had the salmon and crab plate which was best seafood I've enjoyed in months. Bartender did an excellent job of describing the huge beer list. Cool outdoor patio lets you enjoy the neighborhood architecture

We were a group of 8 and the restaurant was fairly busy, but that shouldn't be a surprise for a Saturday at noon. The waitress was prompt with the beverages and took our orders and noted the requests, or so we thought. Half the table had their food and it took at least 5-10 mins to get the rest. Two... More

My friend and I ate there recently and found the food very good. We ordered salads prior to our meals and they were crisp, fresh, and with the right amount of veggies. I thought the selection of items in the menu for healthier options was slim. However, I ordered the Egg-white omelet which appeared to be the best choice and... More

Cafe Hollander is a great catch all kind of place. Good burgers, extensive beer selection, broad menu. They have terrific outdoor seating - and it is one of my favorite places for brunch. Love the cinnamon streusel french toast!

If you like beer, place has an impressive beer list including a lot of Belgium beers. They have a number of very good appetizers, very good burgers and a couple of entrees are top notch - the meatloaf and the salmon.
