For that cozy, only the locals know it feel, give Brother's a shot. The restaurant is well-kept, inviting and updated but nothing fancy-shmancy and has plenty of room for group brunch. For not being a diner, we're impressed with the extensive brunch food and drink offerings; it seems nearly impossible to not find something to order. The food is good, much better than diner food, but not comparable with some of the higher end bars and restaurants we've reviewed. The differentials come down to quality and seasoning, and here the food is satisfying and filling but isn't "fresh off the farm" quality or "holy effing shit" amazing. We should mention the potatoes are hashbrowns instead of homefries, and they are pretty great and a nice change from the norm. Naturally, we appreciate their crispiness. Prices are reasonable, especially considering the portion sizes. By our standards, the Brother's brunch experience is solid.
