Stopped in for a coffee and a small breakfast bite. Good smoothies and latte, it's pumpkin season! They have a good burrito and breakfast sandwiches. Lots of individual seats and a few tables, even a few couches. It's a very relaxed atmosphere, you can even...More

We just had coffee on our way through Downtown Traverse City. Everything on the menu though looked pretty good so we have to come back. The Brew is a really nice place to spend some time with friends or family. Free WiFi included.

Stopped in with a group of people for coffee and something to eat. We enjoyed our coffees and all were good. Food was on point and large servings. Restrooms available.

No chains in downtown Travers City, so get your specialty coffee at Brew. I had a Carmel latte, and my husband had regular brewed coffee. Both were excellent, and mine was complete with a heart floating on top.

My favorite spot is sitting at the window and watching the world go by. You can get a real cup of coffee for just $1

I stopped in briefly with some friends recently, checking out Traverse City from out of town. I had a REALLY good panini-type sandwich and a mocha. This was a nice warm spot on a chilly spring day.

Stopped in here today before heading out of town, hands down one of the best espresso drinks I've ever had! The peppermint mocha was the perfect blend and balance of espresso, mocha and mint. (Not to mention is was pretty to look at) My boyfriend...More
