    Cool joint. Have the Milwaukeeian bloody mary, virgin, which was nice and spicy. The cheese curds were much better tasting than last time. The chicken skewers were awesome, but the cucumber salad was the star of the whole meal! My wife's Chicken Chopped salad was pretty meh, and says she wouldn't get it again. I have the jambalaya which was pretty tasty. Shrimp is definitely Frozen and from a bag. Zero shrimp flavor, but the dish was nice n spicy! The waitress also made a comment that the bruschetta was actually pre-made so they can't take the cheese off of it, how do you pre-make bruschetta? Seems odd. Our server was attentive and friendly.

    Really cool atmosphere and the beet burger was amazing. Not sure how healthy this sandwich was but it did pack an amazing amount of flavor. If I was ever back in the area I would definitely return and get the beet burger again.

    Great location with a fun atmosphere and delicious food! They have a great variety of food and drinks and can accommodate small to large party sizes for dining. The cheese curds were overdone but the rest of the meal was great. The kids meals are served in a fun bento box style with fruit and veggies. The location itself is great with both outdoor and indoor seating and friendly service.

    What a nice place. Large beer selection. They also made a lot of cocktails. Good food. This place is three stories and has interesting deco. Visited it in the winter but it looked like it has an outdoor seating area on the roof.

    The restaurant is in a nice shopping plaza/mall. Plenty of parking with a short walk. The atmosphere is great with both indoor and outdoor seating. This happened to be a trip we took the pups. They were dog friendly on the patio outside and brought water for them too. We ordered the cheese curds. When in WI that’s almost a given. They were good! Went with regular ranch not the Siracha ranch they suggest. Entrees- meatloaf was good but heavy/dense. Mashed potatoes were tasty. Broccoli wasn’t tasty and could do without the mushrooms. But easy enough to brush aside. The Smokey burger was good. Bacon could have been done just a little more but honestly some days I like it the way it came out. Just didn’t seem to be in the mood for it tonight. Avocados were amazing. Only downfall of this sandwich- it comes with Jalapeño BBQ and they don’t offer a regular bbq. Fries were mediocre. Service was great! I’d still go back.

    I reserved an outdoor dome since we had dogs and out of town guests. It was a fun experience to eat outside in the winter. The service was good and the pomegranate mule drink package we selected was tasty. I liked all the appetizers and the breakfast tacos. The side potatoes were super bland and others in my group also did not like their potatoes

    Hands down one of my favorite restaurants. Every time I'm in the area I try to stop at Cafe Hollander for brunch or lunch. They have lots of seating, so I've never had to wait too long for a table. Service is consistently great and the food is always yummy. Highly recommend the berry basil french toast if you're looking for something on the sweeter side. The french fries are also great. I also love the atmosphere of this restaurant, it's super unique and cool. Great to come here in the summer and sit outside as well.

    Incredibly disappointed. Beware of cafe Hollander if you have allergies. I called about my order, and told them I have a gluten & dairy allergy. I was told they’d tell the kitchen, but my delivery arrived with cheese on it. Upsetting. Additionally- my BLT had 3 tiny pieces of bacon on it. (See attached photo) It was $17. For what? I called Hollander (from work on my lunch break) and they said there is nothing they can do whatsoever, because I had Uber eats deliver the food. Well Uber Eats did absolutely nothing wrong. Extremely disappointed by the careless regarding allergies, the tiny portion for the cost, and the lack of ownership for their mistake.

    never been here before. drove from Chicago to try the food here...we were actually at another restaurant waiting for a table for over half hour when we decided to come here instead. Told there was no wait, and we were seated immediately upstairs. the place is huge - filled with all kinds of interesting decor and old pictures of Europe and 50s-70s style advertising plastered on the walls. we ordered the pretzel battered cheese curds, they just tasted like regular battered cheese curds maybe we were given the wrong stuff I don't know but they were good anyways. We were so thirsty and were kept entertained with endless refills of coke and diet as we waited for our meal. we had the chopped chicken salad along with the salmon salad and our third member got the burger, I can't remember the name of it (there's actually an artistic painting of it in the parking garage), without bacon. the burger came with fries which we all shared and they were absolutely fantastic. they were a little crunchy and stayed warm which was just perfect. these are the best fries I've ever had I think. the cost wasn't bad but being in the evening at this time of year the sun was shining through all of the beautiful windows right into my face. I suggest sitting downstairs or on the east side of the restaurant if you go in the evenings and don't like angled light. the food was very good, but probably 10% more than I think it should be as far as cost. it's still worth it. our waiter *Josh* was very attentive and came back many times. Sat Oct 16 2021. Total bill $65ish with 3 meals, appetizer, large coke, large apple juice. Thank you Josh and crew! We'll be back

    I'm really not sure why we waited so long to go back to Cafe Hollander as it was even better than I had remembered. We had visited the Mequon and Wauwatosa locations before and have never been disappointed. This was our first dinner at their Brookfield location at the Corners. It was a beautiful early Friday evening on July 9th when we stopped by to give this location a try. Cafe Hollander Brookfield, like their other locations, has a modern European gastropub vibe. The restaurant is very big with multiple floors and an AMAZING rooftop outdoor seating area. There were a lot of customers dining but, the place is so big and so well staffed it didn't seem crowded or overly busy. We were greeted and seated promptly and courteously. The service was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Aside from the food, Cafe Hollander has an extensive beer selection with an emphasis on Belgian beers. What was a really nice touch was that each beer I ordered came with a specific glass made for that beer by the brewery - it was cool to drink each beer out of glassware that was designed with the best way to enjoy the beer in mind. We started our meal with the Crispy Brussels Sprouts. This brussel sprout appetizer easily makes it into the top five list of best foods I've had this year - yes, it is that good. The sprouts are crispy fried and seasoned with an amazing combination of parmesan cheese, pickled peppadew peppers and spicy pepitas. If you're stopping at Cafe Hollander, this is a must-order appetizer. For dinner we had the Big Smokey Burger (nice portion size, gooey smoked Gouda - bacon & avocado with a little kick from the jalapeno BBQ sauce - a seriously good burger) & the Bacon Avocado Chicken Wrap (again, a good portion size with great flavor from the blackened garlic ranch aioli) - crispy well seasoned fries with both. Overall, a spectacular venue and drinking / eating experience - we won't wait as long as we did to return and we'll definitely be back to explore more of the beer and food menus. Wish I could give more than 5 stars...

    I like Cafe Hollander. Been to several of the locations and they are consistently good. Had lunch this time with a friend. Arrived early for lunch, so no issue getting seated right away. Ordered the slider trio and they were hot, juicy and tasty. Would order them again.

    Delicious brunch and good vibes. Got the avocado smorrebrod and the eggs were perfectly poached. Everyone else really enjoyed their meal as well! Love the patio!

  • 5/5 Heather K. 9 months ago on Google • 73 reviews
    First time and we’ll be back! We love to enjoy a beer flight and they have their version (bier kourier). Excellent flat bread and apps. We really enjoyed the unique dipping sauces. The curry ketchup and garlic aioli ranch are ah-ma-zing! It was hot 🥵 outside but we wanted to experience the upstairs outdoor patio and that was wonderful. Our server (Eric?) was very sweet. We also noticed that the temperature inside wasn’t freezing so we know if we come back and eat inside I won’t be miserably cold like some other establishments in the summer. 🤪

    Was my first time here and I couldn't have had a better experience! The food was delicious and there wasn't one thing I would have had differently. Shout out to the cooks, they really know how to prepare and make amazing fresh hot food perfect!

    Took the wife out for some early drinks and breakfast. Was seated immediately with water coming out right away as well. Service couldn't have been better. Very patient and nice server who always checked on us if everything was good or if we needed anything. Roughly 9am on a Friday morning. Ordered "The Hot Mess" and a Spicy Blood Mary. I'm more of a beer guy but decided to try something different and glad I did. I loved the Spicy Bloody Mary with the cheese, spicy sausage, & spicy pickle. The drink tasted great. The meal was also very good and fulfilling. Wasn't able to finish the whole thing as I got pretty full but I wish I was able to as it tasted great. Definitely try the place out. Great atmosphere and workers.

    10/10 Will absolutely be coming here again if I ever need to be in the area. Such good food and their drink pairings being on the menu is amazing. I highly recommend the quiche.

  • 5/5 Andrew C. 1 year ago on Google
    Great selection of beers. The classic fish fry was delicious! Tomato bisque is also amazing, and just a little spicy.

  • 5/5 Tara F. 1 year ago on Google
    We stopped in while traveling, and the place was super cute. We loved the style, and the waiter was super nice. He recommended the pretzel breakfast sammy, and it was delicious!

  • 5/5 Kayly R. 2 years ago on Google
    Yummy brunch option, and a great patio to enjoy the summer weather! We had the special mimosas for the Fourth of July, which were very tasty! Food was excellent, and so many choices offered on the menu. Definitely find something for everyone. I want to return again soon, very much enjoyed the food and atmosphere.

    Cafe Hollander is a solid choice and I love the space at the corners. Friendly staff, easy check in with your phone number and large bar while waiting for a table. Not too long of a wait, I still had plenty of drink when I got to our table. The food is also great - had the Berry and sweet Brie French toast most recently and it was not too sweet, like I had feared. Great balance between sweet and savory, highly recommend this dish and this restaurant.

    Had a dome reservation Monday, 2/1 and it was perfect! Loved the setup and complimentary drink package. The dome was super cozy and we did not need our coats. Also ordered the yummy charcuterie board and extra items on the menu. What made our experience the best was our server, Donovan. He was so accommodating and attentive. Thanks for everything Donovan!

    Our family purposely goes out on weekdays to avoid large crowds on the weekends in hope for better service and wait times. We went on a Wednesday night and waited 16 minutes to get waters. We were greeted and seated right away. Not sure what the issue was. The food was leftoverish. Our fries were burnt to crisp and the pasta and sauce were very dry as if it sat in the window for awhile before being served. You also were out of Gulden Draak beer. I should have known that was a bad sign.

    Little short staff. Very popular brunch in November. Great atmosphere and staff. I had the mushroom omelette and it was fantastic.

  • 5/5 Dominic H. 2 years ago on Google
    My wife and I stopped in for a quick brunch this weekend, and everything was excellent. There were several new menu items and our server Hannah was very helpful in explaining them to us and recommending items. We ended up splitting the new avocado toast and the berry Brie French toast. We will definitely be back soon! While we didn’t drink this time the bloody Mary’s are always amazing as well!

  • 4/5 Tony Z. 11 months ago on Google
    Went for brunch and I can say it’s a pretty solid spot. Server was very nice. A little slow on getting the food the table but maybe it was just an off day. My second time there and won’t be my last.

    We recently had our staff holiday party at Cafe Hollander and we are thrilled with how it turned out. They were very accommodating, kind, quick to respond and wonderful to work with (especially Molly). The food was delicious and they even custom printed menus for us. It was great to have the beautiful, private room too. So happy we chose Cafe Hollander for our holiday festivities. Highly recommend!
