We took a quick trip up North last week to enjoy the cool fresh air and the lake views of Northern Michigan. The beautiful blue water captivates me every time we drive into Traverse City, and it is nothing less than spectacular.
While there, we stopped at Brew, which is a local coffee-house featuring bakery items, breakfast, sandwiches, appetizers, soups and a variety of amazing beverages including beer and wine. I could stay there all day, just sipping on almond oolong tea and enjoying the relaxing atmosphere.Brick and harvested barn wood covers the walls and is a perfect rustic contrast to the upscale beverage bar with shiny espresso machines and steamed milk frothers working overtime. The building has been refurbished from days gone by as the old Opera House.
We had a quiet breakfast one morning and although it was mid-week, the establishment was filled to capacity. Every table, sofa, high-top and even the beverage bar was occupied with locals or guests. Not even the high season for the resort community, Brew seems to be offering just what this community desires.
As an oatmeal aficionado, I had to order mine with chopped pecans. It was served with a hot-pot of water, so I was able to make my own bowl, adjusting for the optimum consistency of the mixture. I loved this and asked for the brown sugar on the side. Nothing was more perfect or simple for a delicious breakfast.
Others were enjoying a variety of offerings and everyone seemed to be totally enjoying their choices. If in Traverse City, be sure to check out Brew, I highly recommend it for any time of day.
