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.

Fresh ingredients and salad pairings make this a good choice. We were there for lunch. A couple of different rooms change the ambiance a bit but both are casual. Seating is a bit tight in the room off of the kitchen. Patio would be cool in the summer.

The new brick oven they have makes for a great thin crispy crust on the pizzas.

Wine list is not boring and prices are reasonable.

We'd go back.

We had lunch 2/5/13 it was wonderful. Good service nice people. Real Italian with nice fresh spices like fresh basil. I had the meatball sandwich which is the best I have ever had. They are installing a new brick oven. We can not wait to try the pizza.

Brewster's is a stop we always make when we are up in the fall, winter and spring. They don't take reservations so we never go in the summer when there are tourist visiting. The food is always good and staff is great.

We love Brewster's. There outside dining area is one of our favorites. Even though it's along the street, the tables are private and separated from the parking and street. It feels private. The inside seating is best in the bar area. Food is routinely delicious and interesting. This place is reliable for a good meal and friendly atmosphere.

We came into town around 3:00 pm on a mid-December day in the middle of the week--there didn't seem to be much open, so we chose Brewster's since they appeared to be open. What a wonderful surprise--the food was excellent, and our service was good as well. The prices were very reasonable and it was a lovely, cozy place for lunch. We'll be back...
