My friends and I live in the area and we like to walk here on Saturday mornings for coffee and donuts. I've had their breakfast sandwiches a few times -- REAL ingredients and delicious results! The workers are helpful, friendly, and prompt. Prices are comparable to other shops. It's been family-owned for over 20 years and has the feel of... More

The breakfast sandwiches my favorite here, coffee and baked goods also good, lunch sandwiches good but pricey. Staff friendly, now have a drive thru.

This place makes me feel welcome when I walk in the door. The service is excellent, and the food is made to please customers. I love the independent spirit of the Bru House, and am glad they continue to be part of the neighborhood.

Have been frequenting the Bru House since they opened (more than 15 years ago) and we keep coming back again and again, even as we've moved further and further away. The coffee is great, the food is outstanding (best chicken salad on a croissant I've ever had) and the vibe is always so welcoming. Lynn and Tim have created a... More

I stop for lunch several times a month. Love the soup and sandwich combo. Coffee is some of the best available. Great place for meetings business meetings or just chatting with friends. Staff is very friendly.

This restaurant has a nice decor and great selection of hot drinks and sandwiches. I enjoyed my dark chocolate/white chocolate mixed cocoa. The tables were full and people were visiting and enjoying their food. It was fine to be there with 2 small children.
