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.


Located in Madison, WI, Hilldale Shopping Center offers national, regional and local retailers, restaurants and entertainment options across its more than 55 stores. Anchored by Macy's, Target, Metcalfe's Market, and Sundance Cinemas, the 474,000-square-foot center combines exciting national retailers such as Anthropologie, Lululemon athletica, The North Face, and Title Nine with best-in-class local boutiques such as Morgan's Shoes, Twigs and Sushi Muramoto, to create a shopping and dining environment unmatched in the Greater Madison-area.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
