Top Review: “This little coffee shop cafe serves up food in a big way! We had to wait 25 minutes for a Sunday breakfast because it was very busy! What do you think about a busy place – it must be good!! Everyone waiting outside said it was definitely worth the wait! … and it was!! We ordered the Brother’s Omelet, the Bomb French Toast, build your own omelet, and the pork chorizo eggs Benedict! Everything, yes everything was spot on – hot, flavorful, plentiful, beautiful! Nothing could have been improved. Perfect egg cook on the Benedict; country potatoes just the right spice level; veggies on the omelet not over cooked but fresh, cooked, hot; fresh fruit on the French toast was cut fresh! Service excellent and attentive. Brother’s is worth the wait!!”Colette Q.

We were greeted by the sweetest lady at the counter & ordered the egg croissant sandwich, vanilla latte & the honey lavender latte (SO good!!). The sandwich was hot & probably the best we’ve ever had!!  We sat outside & enjoyed the view of the beautiful park & downtown. They were putting together orders for charcuterie platters to take into the wine country… they make all sizes & looked amazing!! Next visit we will be ordering one. Their sandwiches also looked delicious!! Highly recommend this adorable place when visiting Paso!!!”Anna A.

The place itself doesn’t look like much but it has a cute outdoor eating area and everyone and I mean EVERYONE is so kind and friendly there. The servers said hi to everyone and knew their names and were so courteous and kind to us. AND THE FOOD. Big portion sizes for great prices and the GRILLED CHICKEN PICCATA WAS TO DIE FOR. So delicious, the capers were perfectly tart and the potato w butter and the grilled veggies and the SAUCE ON TOP. Heavenly.

Service was great as well.  We had a friendly and quick server.”Akemi L.

I got the yogurt parfait, with a little honey it was perfect, fresh fruit and the right amount of granola. My friends were slightly intimidated by the size of the burrito, but they loved it so much it was completely gone. Fully recommend.”Adriana D.
