After strolling through New Buffalo, decided to pop in to Brewster's for some coffee and dessert. While the food and service are always exceptional, our quick little stop for a snack reminded me that dining doesn't have to be edacious and sometimes simple is best.

Had a late lunch or early dinner at Brewster's on Saturday. Since we can never get into the Stray Dog without a 45 minute wait we always end up at Brewster's. Hopefully the out-of-state crowd will never find this little gem. They have wonderful bread...More

Have eaten here many times. Thought it was time to share my experiences. Reliably delicious Italian fare. Great wait staff. We are particularly fond of the outdoor/ garden seating in summer. Best bet is the pizza and pasta dinner for two. It’s all great.
