A beautiful, locally owned restaurant located in downtown New Buffalo, Michigan; Brewster’s Italian Café puts a modern twist on traditional Italian fare. Our Chef uses a wide variety of fresh, innovative ingredients to create dishes from the many regions of Italy. Anti-pastas, salads, wood-fired pizza, pasta and homemade desserts are featured on our seasonally changing menu. Our sommelier and bar manager take pride in curating the finest selection of liquor, beer and wine, including wonderful locally and Michigan made specialties.

Join us for lunch or dinner near a fireplace in the winter or in our beautiful garden during the summer; slow down with us on a Saturday or Sunday morning when we also offer breakfast. We are open every day, all year round! (Closed Easter Sunday, Thanksgiving and Christmas Day)

We look forward to having you as our guests!

Service was outstanding. Appetizer, staff favorite cornbread, was elegant with a warm combination of flavors. Bruschetta was marginal, too bland. Bread was tough.

Fantastic cozy little place. Excellent service and delicious food for the price. Christmas music was a tad loud for being in such small quarters but we will be back for sure!

After 20 years Brewsters is still our favorite place to dine. We have had issues and they are very quick to address and make things right. The food quality is always on point and the service is a never miss. We have enjoyed over 100 pizzas and each one seems to be better than the last. Do yourself a favor and visit soon and often.

Chef Konnor and his staff create a magnificent culinary experience week in and week out and always make menu choices fresh with enticing weekly specials and periodic regular menu changes.

And the staff smiles, attentive care, and service are second to none!

Walking through the front door felt like stepping into a cafe in Italy. The service was amazing and the food excited my tastebuds. I left with a full belly and felt like family.

Always LOVE Brewster's, and the amazing "Dinner for Two" deal! It was the perfect birthday dinner for my wife, with a nice greeting when we got there and again when we left. Love the atmosphere, although a bit dark, even though I understand why.
