“Neighborhood Cafe”
Reviewed 10 March 2013

Cafe Abseits is worth going out of your way for the beer -- they often have several interesting ones on tap, and they also often feature beers brewed by the local Weyermann malt factory -- something I've not seen anywhere else.

The food selection is better than most places like it, with some interesting options. I bring my family here because there is something for everybody, including vegetarians. But I come here to drink the beer.

I've not been here late, but they claim to be open until 1am. It would be a fantastic place to hang out with some friends, especially in nice weather when the beer garden is open.

Great food and beer selection. If you need advice on beer, just ask.
Sit in the beer garden if you can and enjoy the night.

I highly recommend.

“Perfect BeirGarten experience plus wonderful food.”
Reviewed 28 September 2009

This is a lovely outdoor garden with nice beer choices and a vast number of cuisine choices on the menu. I've been there four times and the food was wonderful every time. I had Lamb, mushroom soup, Brat, Schnitzel, and some Tex mex. All very good.

“Hidden on a side street - nice ambience”
Reviewed 8 June 2009

I liked the decor and ambience. Didn't expect this little cafe on this street. I only had cocktails there but the food looked delicious and can't wait to go back and try it.
