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!

    We were seated near the kitchen so understandably it was a bit noisy. Our server Brenna was just delightful with our granddaughters.

    The food was good, but a little overpriced in my opinion. However, at least they serve Coke products so I can't complain much. My wife and I will definitely be back on a non-holiday weekend to try some of the other dishes they have to offer. Happy New Year

    We eat here often. My husband and I always share the Dinner for 2; always lots of good food and a great value. Last night we tried one of the New Year specials, an airline chicken with gnocchi, very good. Craft cocktails, thin crust pizza to share, great balsamic house dressing on the mixed greens salad, cookie of our choice, and coffees, all included. Recommended.
