We always make it a point to stop in to Brew when we visit Traverse City. The staff is very friendly, the drinks and food have always been very good. Great spot for a coffee, brew or casual fresh food.

Chai latte & bagel sandwich was very very good. However, my son's oatmeal appeared to be instant & the other kids pastries were just ok. Good for easy breakfast (order at counter)

We stopped here for coffee and were pleasantly surprised. Their plain coffee is only a dollar and tastes great! The nitro brew coffee is excellent and different. The food and juice looked pricy, but we didn't try any.

Honestly we are usually at the Brew for a coffee and some time on the internet. However, they have excellent breakfast sandwiches. They are also known for their local beers, ales and ciders which I haven't tasted yet. Espresso drinks are well made just small. They have refillable brewed coffee on the cheap. I like the atmosphere.

Great coffee with a ton of options. Twitchy Irishman is great. Also the food is really good too... usually an after thought for most coffee shops. Nice looking place, good casual place to spend some time with a coffee or drink

We enjoyed the quality of the coffee and returned every day we were there on vacation. Wish more sizes were available of coffee drinks offered.

At first sight it doesn't look special, but once inside you are amazed. They not only serve coffee and light meals, but a whole bar of craft beers! It's a very interesting and fun place!

Very friendly staff and great options for a vegetarian. I loved the berry smoothie bowl. Kid meals available too. We sat outside and enjoyed the nice weather.

A nice cafe to meet people or sit and write or read. The food is good. My only complaint is that it's impossible to get a 6oz cappuccino, but that's definitely a Traverse City problem, not specific to the Brew.
