Bells eccentric cafe is an amazing atmosphere with q top notch selection of beers (duh) ... Pretty much the only reason i wished i still lived in Kalamazoo. Pre expansion the cafe was far too packed any evening or weekend for my tast but with the new expansion the place is perfect! During the summer there is an amazing beer garden that's fun to hang out in. The original cafe has an amazing charm and the food (at least the old food) was very tasty. Overall a must stop for any beer lover in the area

The vibe was a little too "I'm so special cause I am here". The beers I had were good, however their service was not that great. To their credit , they were very busy and may have been a little under staffed. The beer selection was very good. I would not go out of my way to visit them again.
