Liked the coffee, the avocado toast so decided to go back for lunch. Had an excellent salmon salad. Highly regarded.

My sons and I enjoyed Sunday breakfast here at Good Brother. Great coffee and the menu was reasonably priced. I loved my avocado with salsa on toast.

One of the best lattes to be found. I had coffee here many times, and cake once. Cake was lovely. Would be great if there was more outdoor seating, as I usually have my dog with me.
