I could have rated everything on the menu, it all looked so good. Great coffee, perfect biscuits and large portions. Ended up with the "Hungry Tiger" basically a meat fest open omelette with home fries (best hash browns ever)

My wife and I had brunch in June, 2017. It was busy and we had to wait about 1/2 hour. The wait was worth it, food and service were both top notch. I had the Eggs Benedict and my wife had pancakes. Recommended.

This restaurant operates as a "pay if you can", serving delicious breakfast to those who can or can't pay. Popular spot, probably will require a wait but well worth the effort. Diverse menu, huge portions, mile high biscuits. My veggie omelet made 2 meals. Excellent...More

Brother Juniper's is not "pay as you can", rather a retail establishment where people pay for what they purchase from the menu or for products off the shelves. There is a Community Spotlight board which highlights a different non-profit each month which brings awareness to...More

It's usually very crowded, so get there early. Their homemade bread is perfect. Plenty of menu items to select. My favorite is the portabella mushroom with peppers omelette. The Mexican omelette is my second choice. Coffee is excellent. Large servings.

Go early or prepare to wait. However, the wait is completely worth it. The menu is highly original and the breakfast is wonderful. Everything is made fresh and served hot. Although eating spaces are pretty crowded - it isn't a large place - customers have...More

They do have a website, Check the Reviews. you may be able to find out more (info). Love this place. Go hungry, portions are rather large. Try the coffee bar while you wait. Caramel Latte is fantastic.
