We were in town for the Apple Cider Century bike ride the last weekend of September. First night in town we ordered carry-out. Autumn Salad and Roma pasta. The food was very yummy but the wait on the phone to place the order was a bit long. I was placed on hold and then went through two other people before... More

Cute atmosphere inside and out. We had a dinner on the patio there's not a bad seat. The spring salad was refreshing and has a tasty dressing. The meatballs are thick and good, but I wish they had red sauce on them.

I've been here a few times, and the food is consistently great. The atmosphere is nice and the outdoor seating is another wonderful feature. Prices are fair and the staff is nice. The salads are creative and tasty. I've always had a good experience here.

This is one of mine and my family's top picks. First Italian is one of my favorites! Second I love the dinner for two! Third they change their menu every day so every time we come they have the usual choices plus something unique and exciting! Then there is the final touch the Royale cookie. It's so good, it has...

Our last dinner in New Buffalo was at Brewster's Italian Cafe. They have a very nice bar where we had a drink on the previous evening. The service was very friendly on both evenings that we were there. On this , our last dinner in New Buffalo, we were disappointed with the food. I guess the keyword in the name... More

Attentive servers, pleasant outdoor patio, and a superb fresh bruschetta combined for a lovely supper for the two of us. We chose Brewster's on a whim for the attractive landscaping and welcoming patio. No disappointments!

One of the best overall meals... More

We had to wait for a table, but we were able to sit in the bar during the wait. My husband and I had the dinner for two which was way too much food for us even though it was so delicious. We enjoyed the pictures on the wall and wondered if they were family members. Try this restaurant if... More
