This place has really neat decor and a nice vibe that is both relaxing and energetic at the same time. We were seated instantly and our waiter, Peter, was at our table right away taking drink orders. We all ordered different things and ate everything on our plates. This was my first time here and I was struck again by... More

We're working our way down Tosa Trip Advisor list-- so Cafe Hollander our 2nd stop! I've eaten at Cafe Hollander before and have always been satisfied with my meal. This was my first time dining indoors- we had a nice table in back. We were a party of 4 and no complaints from any of us-- One had a burger---... More

We really enjoy this restaurant; the menu has many choices; the fish fry is great; the beer selection is huge and the atmosphere inside and out is casual. Would recommend it. On a side note to the management: we had a very atypical experience on one of our last visits; we ate outside - our server was Shannon. Sadly, she... More

Loved the burger and sweet potato fries but the location and sitting outside was best. We will defiantly go again and try a speciality salad next.

The food was fine. Good fries as it should be from a Belgian restaurant. The quiche and sandwiches were good. Lattes were good. Excellent beer selection and patio seating. The piece that tends to go wrong here is the service. It is very hit or miss and this time was a huge miss. The waitress was distant and forgetful. If... More

Went here twice in the past week (the first time was so good, we couldn't stay away), and both times our food was delicious and the staff was extremely friendly and attentive! Both times we had burgers, both times we were not disappointed! Fun atmosphere and a nice view overlooking the river.

Even with the crazy street construction it's worth the walk . The quinoa squash with egg is fabulous. The burgers are perfect. It's a great lunch spot.

We were seated upstairs which I didn't feel like walking up all those steps, neither did all the other guests because the lower level was full! A perfect place for a Saturday Lunch with friends! We had a group of 8 and everyone loved their meals. I had the short Stack Pancakes which were delicious, but the Cubed potatoes weren't... More
