Loved the patio!!

We had a pizza and it was good, lots of options! The patio area is what really wowed us. Lots of seating outside, yet the layout is done well that you almost feel like you are sitting in a garden by yourself! We will definitely go back and would love to try an entree.....

My husband and I ate at the restaurant while on a date. It was early in the evening and we had no wait to get a table outside on the patio. The patio is lovely with large hanging baskets of flowers throughout. It created a nice atmosphere. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. We got the dinner for two... More

There were 6 adults and 2 two year olds in our party. We went to eat at 5:15 on a Tuesday night to avoid the dinner rush. One of the waitresses acted like we had 25 people and 10 kids in our party. She was very rude. The restaurant was not busy at all, and it took 5-10 minutes to... More

The menu changes daily, but it is not exciting. The outdoor dining is beautiful except they don't know how to spray for bugs. I left there with over 40 mosquitpo bites. It totally ruined the dinner experience and the servers only comment " well it is the outdoors". Everywhere we went in New Buffalo the people we friendly and extremely... More

Spent day at beach. Then to cafe for early dinner. Peaceful atmosphere. Fairly fast service. Delicious bread prior to our main course. Shared two kids of delicious pizza -definitely not your typical pizzas. Prices reasonable.

I dined here with friends last night for the first time. We had fire grilled pizzas and really enjoyed the evening until the mosquitoes chased us inside. Wonderful restaurant!

Loved the outdoor seating! Beautiful garden area. Food was delicious. My granddaughter loved their pizza with the olive oil base.

The restaurant is located on a side street so you need to look for it (not difficult). If the weather is good, definitely stay on the patio outside, it is super nice with lots of flowers and trees plus each table has its own "privacy". We were 6 people and we had salads and pizzas. If you like the real... More

I have been going to Brewster’s for years and find it unique to not have had a poor experience. Even the best restaurants have off nights and I have been fortunate to have missed those if any have happened. The service and food have been uniquely consistent over time. I find this place to be family friendly along with a... More
