    I spend 90% of my time here. It's a great place to get work done in the afternoon, have drinks with friends in the evening, grab coffee in the morning. It quickly became my goto place in downtown TC.

    Midday cocktails you say!? Yes please. Good place to get some work done, have a conversation or sit and read and have a coffee or a cocktail.

    Quality, taste and consistency are what you find at Brew. My favorite hot drink is a mocha and Brew creates an amazing drink that sits atop the razors edge between sweet and bitter, perfectly balanced

    Sean: Makes a mean latte, cappuccino, americano, you name it. He'll help you find the best drink for your taste, and you can watch him and the other Brew specialists make it right there at the bar.

    Great espresso. So tasty and the crema is awesome. The style, and environment is perfect too. Either to escape from a boring office or to study can't beat this place!

    They have a unique, quirky style with an extensive menu of coffee drinks, martinis, wines, beers, sandwiches, salads, and treats. Artfully decorated, and absolutely a place to relax and hang out. Read more

    Adorable little coffee shop in DT TC. I always stop when I'm in town. Great place to bring your computer and putz, they have outlets located by the tables!

    This IS NOT just a coffee shop. They have a bar with several beers on tap, also wine & liquor. Less of a bar feel: more of a cool European cafe, lending to conversation & great after work meeting spot

    Classic coffee shop feel, but with alcohol mixed in. Free wi-fi. Good for just chilling downtown.

    Cobb Salad: You haven't had a Cobb until you've had it at Brew. Most salads are 80% leaf and 20% goodies. Not here. The Cobb is packed with eggs, cheese, ham, veggies, the kitchen sink! Must try.

    Definitely the best coffee house in TC. Great coffee, wifi, and cool, easy vibe. Bagels are pretty good too...

    Nice place for a business meeting. Glad to see them booming, but can be noisy and hard to get a seat. In their defense, they did just add some more.

    Great atmosphere and the best coffees in this town...big difference between a restaurant that also sells coffee and a true coffee shop.

    Espresso is inconsistent, and the food is mostly overpriced, but it's a really functional setting for hanging out and working.

    Just need a regular coffee? Simply put a dollar in the carafe near the coffee station to the left of the register.

    Don't go late on a Sunday morning unless you enjoy parents letting their kids run back and forth. Otherwise, everything was good.

    Cool place- coffee in the AM and later there's booze. Cashier/barista couldn't have cared less about being of help. Bad customer service.

    Stop in for a vanilla chai. Seriously puts Starbucks/Biggby/every other coffee shop to shame.
