Bell's Eccentric Cafe never disappoints. The ever changing beer tap board and the eccentric daily specials make it a place worth of revisiting. It's a great place to go hang out on their patio or in the bar. Be sure to visit Bell's company store...More

This is a busy and popular place! I love the beer selection and the grass fed beef burger! This place can get noisy so not for ones who want a quiet place. Try the beers that you can only get on tap, so good! Very...More

We visited Bell's for a tour, dinner, and a concert. I don't normally like beer, but I really liked the different brews, especially the raspberry ale. Probably because I've never had a quality beer before...I thoroughly enjoyed hearing the history of Bell's-their integrity and quality...More

Always a good time and great beer menu. Hard to get a seat in the bar area, seems anytime - very popular. But everyone is always in a great mood, so mingle pretty freely with strangers. Long waits for dinner usually, but worth the wait....More

Description
Located in beautiful downtown Kalamazoo, Michigan, the Eccentric Cafe, located next to the Bell's General Store, is home to a unique offering of craft beer, live music, entertainment, delicious food and more.Any given time, we have between 20 and 40 different beers on tap. Many are exclusive to the Cafe and are brewed right next door at our original brewery - just look for the yellow tags on the Draft Board when you visit.
