I’ve been to Brown three or four times, and while the food is nothing spectacular, it’s one of my more favorite breakfast spots in the LES. Breakfast and brunch spots are usually disappointing and a rip off- you have to wait in line to eat stuff that you could’ve cooked at home. I know that the point of brunch is to get together with friends and be in a nice atmosphere, but I’d rather not waste time waiting to eat eggs and bacon. If you go to Brown early (9-10pm), there’s no line, even though the place is tiny. The decor and ambiance is nice and when I go it’s usually occupied by people who live in the neighborhood. They’re known for their baked eggs. Definitely a great choice if you live close by, but maybe not worth taking a trip to.

unfortunately closed… I liked the way they used to serve eggs!
