I stopped in here one evening as I was wandering around downtown Traverse City. Their Chai latte was really tasty. I took my drink to go, but the vibe in the place was nice. I'd hang out there.

It's easy to see why Brew has become so popular in our little foodie haven-it's pretty awesome! We stopped in for coffee & cocoa to go during the Traverse City Film Festival, late on Friday evening. It was very busy, but service was fast & friendly. Many people were eating food & it looked fresh & delicious! (fruit, sandwiches, etc)... More

My husband and I split the North Peak sandwich and it was very good! One of the best paninis we have had in a while! I would love to go back to try some of the other things on the menu when we visit again. They also had some live music starting when we were there. It seemed like a... More

Cool edgy coffee and more shop. Espresso was excellent as was the iced tea. Sandwiches and other food items looked great, bummed we had already eaten!

The atmosphere is pretty fun... you can order coffee, tea, food, beer, and liquor, which allows a group to meet and enjoy themselves without worrying about who drinks and who doesn't. The Irish Coffee I ordered my first visit was delicious and strong-- perfect. The next visit I ordered an Americano and was surprised at the length of the wait.... More

Love stopping in at Brew, especially for evening drinks! Prices are a bit on the higher side, but the atmosphere and food are good too.

We stopped here to take a little break and do a little catching up with free wi-fi. We had been traveling for most of the day and decided to take a little break here before doing a little shopping in downtown TC. The food and drinks were good and the service was good. It seems to be a very well... More

Its a definite stop in place, they have wonderful coffee, and the mugs for sale are priceless. I purchased a unique mug for my husband. They serve food, I didn't have any, but I will stop in next time. Its a self-service restaurant.

Went here with friends. It's got a prime location and an interesting menu. However, a friend has significant allergies, and the barista was very rude in responding to her inquiries about ingrediants. This was off putting to say the least. There's several other coffee shops I'd try before I'd go here again. Customer service is important.
