Description: Over the last 25 years, Brewster's Italian Cafe` has grown from a small bakery to a full-service Italian restaurant in the heart of Harbor Country. Located in downtown New Buffalo, Michigan, Brewster's offers seasonally-inspired items and locally sourced ingredients that change every meal, every day. Our chefs meticulously select only the highest quality ingredients that reflect the true nature of what it means to eat rustic Italian cuisine. Whether you're looking for a classic plate of spaghetti and meatballs or a handmade pizza from our wood fire oven, Brewster's Italian Cafe is more than just your average Italian restaurant. Along with our ever-changing menu, we also make most of our desserts right here at the restaurant, including our creme brûlée and tiramisu. We proudly serve local craft brews from the likes of Greenbush Brewery and Bell's Brewing along with our extensive craft cocktail list featuring the finest of liquor from Journeyman Distillery. Our outdoor patio is perfect for any occasion as we accommodate to your specific needs-whether it be a special event or just a night out with the girls, Brewster's has something for everyone. Our menu changes every day, our chefs are constantly creating new dishes and flavor combinations, but our tradition remains the same from day one: provide the highest-quality ingredients that reflect the beauty in the simplicity of Italian fare.

We have been stopping by Brewsters for 10+ yrs on almost monthly trips back to MI from the Chicago area. The variety (most of the menu changes daily), the quality of food, the service and over all value is always great...regardless if we stop for lunch or dinner. There are many great restaurant choices in SW Michigan from New Buffalo to St Joseph, but if you are looking for a good Italian meal, Brewsters is a great overall value.

A recent visit to Brewster's raised my opinion of it a lot. A review on another travel site described Brewster's as an overpriced Olive Garden, and that seemed about right to me. But we had dinner there last weekend and it was actually quite good. Brewster's has a dinner-for-two deal that includes a small pizza, an entree, a salad and a big cookie for dessert. The pizza was always okay, but the entrees were mostly unremarkable pasta dishes. Maybe I missed them previously, but our entrees last weekend--chicken for us; a steak for another couple--were actually tasty. I'm glad we gave this restaurant another chance.

We saw others order their cookies to go, so we did the same. Wow! They were so good, we made a few trips back just to get their cookies. We have never had such good cookies before, I know it sounds weird... but they were AWESOME! :) The food was great the decor was nice as well. It was busy each time were there.

We ate dinner here on saturday night after a Notre Dame game. We were seated right away with no wait. My wife and I had the dinner for 2 which included a pizza, salad, entree, coffee, and 2 cookies for dessert for around $30. The food was great and the price cannot be beat. Our bill was just under $100 for our dinner for two, two kids meals, 2 pieces of cake, and 5 alcoholic drinks. The waitress was great with the kids, and asked them if they wanted to blow out the candles in the restaurant when we left (the game went into 3 OT, so it was a late dinner). Great atmosphere and food. Highly recommend!
