We stopped here for breakfast and coffee. Coffee is good but pricey- $3 for a cup if you stay at the cafe (and I asked for 12 oz)!! Several egg based breakfast options such as an omelette, wraps, fried and scrambled. Pastries look decent too. I had a scrambled egg plate with hash browns and do not recommend it. The... More

Great place to have coffee and breakfast item with friends. Can stay indoors or go outside in front on sidewalk, or in the back open area, great little knick knack shop to look for unusual items for friends. Great place to sit and talk with friends.

Lively place with tasty food and wonderful coffee and teas. Expect to wait for a table, but worth the wait. The menu is small, but what they do serve is always fresh and tasty.

They have a variety of breakfast items along with their coffees and teas. They always have great exhibits of local art to view while sipping on your beverage of choice!

This coffee shop serves Stumptown coffee, not locally roasted but still good. The barista serving us was delightful and quick. Worth visiting if you're in the area and want something better than Starbucks.

This is my second favorite coffee shop in the north county of San Luis Obispo County. Their coffee is roasted to near perfection with a unique deliciousness. If you like cold brew coffee order a Nitro, WOW! They have a nice seating area inside with free Wi-Fi and they have an outdoor area called the backyard that is very nice... More

I liked the look of this alternative coffee house, with locals inhabiting it. I like dark roast coffees with extra expresso, but here it had that sour taste I think you get in cheap diners.

Just wanted some black coffee, this place is pretty hipster, which isnt my bag. The coffee is pretty pricey for what it is, probably wont come in here again

Bru serves up delicious coffee and pastries (and even a couple of hot breakfast dishes) with a smile. Each time I've been here, I enjoyed the food, ambiance and homey feel to the place. My reason for giving this 4 out of 5 stars is because each time I've been there, my food has been placed on the counter, but... More

First visit here early on a Saturday am. The staff is friendly, flexible with my order, which included both in house coffees plus one to go for later. Definitely a local coffee shop with good vibe. Decent wifi and lots of inside seating.
