Cafe Hollander to Bring Fresh New Dining Option to Hilldale Shopping Center as Part of Redevelopment

MADISON, WI--(Marketwired - May 16, 2014) - The Lowlands Group and Hilldale Shopping Center are pleased to announce that plans for a new Café Hollander to open in the first quarter of 2015 are underway. With seven restaurants in the Milwaukee area including two Café Hollander locations, this young, growing company is bringing its "grand café" concept to Hilldale.

Offering a European inspired culinary direction, Café Hollander will serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night dining as well as its highly popular weekend brunches. The restaurant specializes in Belgian beers with 30 on tap and over 100 bottled varieties. The Lowlands Group also partners with a 5th generation family brewery near the Belgian town of Gent to brew three of their own biers as well as a seasonal holiday bier each December. The Lowlands Brewing Co. biers are served exclusively at all Lowlands Group grand cafes.

The Hilldale Café Hollander will feature a unique blend of indoor and outdoor dining areas including a sidewalk patio, a spectacular rooftop deck and an interior courtyard with a retractable glass roof. Known for their European décor and atmosphere, the Lowlands Group uses European antiques, repurposed and salvaged building materials as well as locally salvaged items as part of the grand cafe design.

But the food and bier are the real stars at Café Hollander. Chef Wil Borgstrom strives to utilize local ingredients in his twist on European scratch cooking. "Our focus is on serving our customers real food -- scratch cooking with an emphasis on quality local or regional products whenever possible." COO Paul Pendleton said of Borgstrom's menu.

"We are thrilled to be bringing our values and our café to Madison" Pendleton continued. "We have been wanting to open one of our concepts here and think Hilldale is an ideal location."

WS Development, owner of Hilldale is in the midst of redeveloping the center with a plan that proposes to take the existing enclosed mall area between Metcalfe's and Macy's and create an open air streetscape. The plan will deliver outward facing storefronts along the existing streets in this area, and add an open-air retail connection through a pedestrian walkway to the west parking lot with additional storefronts. Café Hollander will be located on the west side of the property near Macy's, Morgan's shoes and the Farmer's Market. WS is creating a pedestrian walkway from Target to the Macy's entrance and Café Hollander for easier traffic flow and customer access.
