Located in an old building in Kalamazoo, the cafe consists of a main floor with a high ceiling, a loft-like second floor open to the lower level, and a fenced-in outdoor garden that had a stage at one end and otherwise felt like a nicely landscaped backyard. The beer selection was OK - there were some non-bottled brews on the list, but the lager that two of us had was a disappointment. Of course, their main brews were available and would have been good but I wasn't inspired to order something I can get in a bottle any old day. There was a bartender and an ordering window but no table service. I had a bison burger that was great, and we ate outside, walking under the arbor of hop vines - it wasn't busy but the atmosphere was really relaxing. The prices were quite cheap, so we were happy with that. Overall, we were glad we made the drive for the visit.

What a fantastic value! Ambience, service, food, and beer were all excellent and the price was reasonable. What more could one want? If there was any griping to be done it was that they were out of my second beer selection and there was a slight chip on one of my glasses. Those were the only things keeping me from giving them a higher score. Btw- loved the African themed bar.
