Great idea having a coffee house and bar in the same venue. Decor was great and beer was good too. Had a great selection of canned lawnmower beers.

Walking on Front St. we stopped in. Decided on a cider and an expresso. Both were very enjoyable. Relaxing atmosphere and good service.

Stopped in for an extra shot macchiato which more than set me up for the day! They also have really authentic tasting french pastries and we enjoyed sitting outside.

Stopped in while we were doing the up and down Front Street tour in Traverse City.....shopping, art galleries, etc. The place was packed, but the servers kept pace with the crowd. I had an excellent Americano. There are plenty of places to sit, and of all kinds of variety....tables, benches, stuffed chairs, etc. The space goes deep back. A very... More

You can serve yourself for a buck or for 3 get a Peruvian poor over. Either way it's great coffee and great atmosphere. Parking can be sketchy because it's right on front street.

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

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
