No bitter coffee here...

Smooth and very tasty coffee await you in this quiet coffee establishment. Barista was friendly but the guy at register not so much. No biggie...coffee was perfect!

We stopped to get a quick cup of coffee and breakfast while on our way to the Traverse City wineries. They had a good variety of coffees and offered a lot of items that were vegan friendly. We ordered caramel lattes to go along with some french danishes which were nice. The vibe is very hipster and is a cute... More

Very casual. Usually packed with millenials working on their laptops. Great coffee and food at reasonable prices. Great vibe. I really love it.

Went with a group. The Spanish coffee was good. My cappuccino was too cold and not very strong. Another friends was too hot. The place was very warm inside.

Went here with family for breakfast and everyone got something different. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal and had positive things to say. This is a good spot in downtown TC for breakfast and lunch. The atmosphere is laid back and good for anyone looking to get some work done or read a book. I would recommend this to... More

This is in a really cool old building. Very chill, lots of spots to hang out and enjoy some coffee in the morning or beer/wine in the afternoon. The breakfast was small portions but just enough with focus on good flavor. Sort of a hippie/granola feeling in there but in a chill way.

Brew is all the buzz in and around Traverse City and now I can see why. This evening I met a few colleagues at Brew and was I ever impressed. The atmosphere is hip and upbeat with lots of great coffee and tea to drink. The food is really good. I had the "Hipster Salad" and it was totally delicious.... More
