I hate to rain on the parade of praise for this place, but I found the staff of both the Eccentric Cafe and the retail shop to be some of the rudest people Iíve encountered in the hospitality industry. Maybe itís just a local thing -- I found the same snotty attitude all over Kalamazoo, as if this ho-hum ass-thorn of a town has anything to be snotty about. The only place I got decent service without attitude was Olde Peninsula, but that alone isnít enough to bring me back to Kzoo any time soon.

First trip here in a while. Great food, okay selection of brews... I was hoping to try a couple others that werenít bottled. Funky Moby-ish techo music playing during the afternoon. A good day trip. Bring cash with you... they donít take c/cís. However, they do have an ATM, which will cost you $2.

The mecca of any true stoutie, nice place, i like sitting upstairs if the outsideís not open, fun little outdoor venue, hops all over the garden, good food with some headie options, and always some eccentric ales flowiní from taps, I love this place, just wish my pocket book could handle it

Very enjoyable experience. Had about 10 beers on tap with the most expensive being $3.50 for a 12-oz. goblet of TCOE. Needless to say, we took advantage of that, along with Hell Hath No Fury, Raspberry Ale and Cherry Stout. Smoke free and very clean setting made it an enjoyable experience for my wife and son as well (bring your own highchair though.) The barbeque coconut chicken sandwich I had was also quite tasty. Recommended!

Not expecially easy to find... also cabs in Kalamazoo tend to be slow. The cafe is avereage size with a smal stage at one end and a loft at the other. The loft seems to be the quieter seating. The entire establishment is smoke free. You find a very wide range of people here from yuppie types, to trucker types, to stoner types and everything in between. Although obtained through a somewhat strange ordering system, the food is very good and somewhat upscale - at least not what youíd expect to be ordering from a window. The beer selection was great, with wheat projects, 6000, old ale and others on tap. A number of the brews were only $1.75 per glass! There happened to be an interesting and talented celtic band performing the night I was there. Of course, a must see in Michigan...

Coming here felt like making a pilgrimage. Very hard to find place. All wood inside, with a big walk up bar. Good selection of their stuff on tap, including batch 6000 and 3rd coast old ale, two of my favís. Prices were pretty damn cheep as well. Food is ordered at a seperate window, and was pretty tasty as well as pretty cheep. They had a really cool celtic band play at night as well. A great place.

K-Zoo must stop destination. A little difficult to find, but not bad if you know your way around. Nice old brewery converted into cafe. Great selection of beers. Good session beer when I went. "Hell Hath No Fury." Descent live music on the weekends. I go everytime Iím in Kalamazoo. A must stop even if just for an afternoon beer.

Had no problem finding the place coming in from out of town but it was light out. We had good and friendly service, although there is no table service, you get everything yourself. I informed the bartender that we had never been there and he was very helpful. Our food was excellent. I had the Angus burger while my wife had the Portebello mushroom sandwich. All of the usual suspects were there on tap. I only wish I could have had something that was not bottled. My wife liked the chalkboard in the bathroom for those of you compelled to doodle. The artwork in the place added to the feel as well as the stained glass windows. My three year old daughter liked the dead insects on display. Big open beer garden outside. Cool place that I will go to everytime I am in the area.

After having a challenging time finding the plae, i was astounded to find out the building i was in was actually the brewery. Unexpected but a delight none the less. All my favorites were consumed (ofcourse). Very relaxed atmosphere with a mix of college students and local beer geeks. The gift/beer shop is worth a visit as well. A must stop if in the area.

Canít complain about the selection, as they had every beer I was looking for, along with one draught only beer. Itís one of the best breweries in the world. The gift shop was really neat as well. I was able to pick up some nice clothing as well. I wouldnít miss this place.
