“Very cool place, best coffee shop in town!”
Reviewed April 22, 2012

This place is awesome! Very clean, comfortable and relaxing place to meet friends or get some work done. Spacious table are great, you don't feel like you are on top of other people. The service is top notch. All of the staff is very professional, gregarious and attractive. Very nice selection of coffee drinks, featuring "Higher Grounds" coffee which is the best product in the Midwest. Also great "Light of Day" teas. They seem to have a nice rotation of beers on tap and they always have good bottles. I love that you can drop a buck in a jar and help yourself to coffee. I could make this place my second living room.

“Unique Coffe House Bar ... great atmosphere, service, location...”
Reviewed December 13, 2011

As of this writing, Brew is only a few months old. It's one of my favorite places to hang out in TC. It's unique in that it's a coffee house yet they also serve beer and other libations. They also have a food menu.

Strengths: location, ambiance, service (top notch), and one dollar coffee policy. You can walk up and toss a buck in a jar and get your own coffee. Love it.

A great place to hang out with friends. Couches in back, ... really cool hip place.
