We ate here for a late night dinner. Really good food. Great atmosphere for hanging out with friends. Shortbread cookies are amazing

Even though in the middle of town, this café has a hide away atmosphere. The menu is limited but very good. My favorite is their gin martini with a small personal pizza and artichoke side dish. Our waitress Jess was outstanding.

Brewster has excellent food in a lovely setting. Especially good in warm weather when you can eat outside for a wonderful European feel. The pizzas are very good but we also enjoy the salads and appetizers. A great place for a date or a family meal.

Recently stopped here on a visit to New Buffallo and I genuinely would recommend it to anyone who wants a delicious meal in a pretty setting. We did the dinner for two deal which was a great deal for how much food we got. The pizza was my favorite - but the Amish chicken was right up there. The dinner... More

The hostess should learn better people skills. We almost left because she was quite arrogant and rude but we had already waited an hour to get a seat. Had we not been so hungry we would've gone elsewhere. But our waitress was very nice and the food was good. Really wish our experience was better because it's a cute place.... More

I stopped in for lunch while on a sales call in the area. It is a hidden little jewel in New Buffalo and I highly recommend. I had the turkey sandwich which was fantastic - I would drive out of my way for it. Skip the tourists spots and hit this spot instead.

Been dining at this restaurant for years. Love the dinner for two, which is soup or salad (I always have the salad) pizza, and one entree to split. Then coffee and a home baked cookie. Entrees change daily depending on what is fresh and available locally. Service has always been attentive.

Have coming to Brewsters for 20 years now.... The best outdoor seating area of all. The dinner for two is an incredible deal! Wished they served more local wines though... to support Southwest Michigan. Food is always excellent!!

Brewsters is an upscale restaurant, serving very good Italian food. It is centrally located, on the main street in New Buffalo. Service has always been good, and orders appear quickly. Outdoor dining available in good weather. Parking is normally not a problem.
