Eating Out: Cafe Hollander

Cafe Hollander in Tosa is one of my favorite places to spend a Sunday morning. This place is known to have a great brunch (aka hangover cure). It's not one of those stuffy white linen places, it's pretty casual. Full of fun art work and the building has exposed pipes in the ceiling. The serving staff is dressed down, wearing just a Hollander T-shirt and jeans. You'll feel comfortable if you’re wearing your Sunday best or if you just woke up on your friend’s floor after a night of intense partying.

If you do show up for brunch the first thing you will notice is that the place is packed. Normally I expect a 20-30 min wait. If you're like me at all this won't bother you, in fact it will give you the chance to have some quality time at the bar.

Hollander's Bloody Mary list is extensive. They have 6-7 different types that you can try. I'd suggest the Gin Mary.

Mix some beer with some OJ and you have the best morning drink ever created. This is a must in hangover treatment.

The Beer list here puts other bars to shame. It’s 16 pages long. You can get a beer flight and taste your way through 4 at a time.

The food at Hollander isn't crazy. It's simple American classics all done pretty well. You aren’t going to find Lion stuffed with Zebra Muscles here but you will find some good burgers and pancakes. With places like Hollander you have to wonder why anyone ever goes to Denny's or Webb's. The food here might be simple but I've never had anything bad.

All and all Hollander is a fun place to go. It's not super serious unless you're talking about beer. They are super serious about beer. I've never been to Hollander and not enjoyed myself. I think you would have to be some sort of sick horrible person to not have a good time at Hollander. I mean if you get bored and you don't like the people your with they have a game rack with games like "Rock'em Sock'em Robots" to keep you occupied.

Go Eat.
