Hip little coffee joint on the main drag. Had a great latte and enjoyed it outside in the glorious weather watching the world go by.

the coffee was amazing and although we didn't eat we kept going in day after day to try all the different types of coffees they have on the menu. Friendly servers and very helpful :) If you like your coffee go try each one !

I spend summers in TC and Brew has always been a part of my routine when I'm visiting. Great drinks, great food and great service! On a recent trip, I was pleased to see not only has their beer list improved immensely, they are now...More

It was a chilly day and we were in the mood for some hot drinks. We each got something different - a chai tea latte, a cappuccino, and a latte. All very tasty but slightly sweet. Service was a bit slow. Still a good find.

I only had a traditional late here, but thought the coffee and service was great. You can also have liquor added to your morning beverage if desired. Brew is located right in the main shopping area of downtown Traverse City.
