The Brotherhood Cafe
At The Brotherhood Cafe the vibe is particularly important; it’s an LGBTQIA+ safe space where there are no labels and creative individuals can come together.
There’s a good set up for meetings and events – the wooden benches are comfortable, most of the cafe is spacious and well lit and there’s a darker back room for more serious discussion and round-table chat. The work of local artists hangs on the walls.
Brotherhood’s not exclusively for the LGBTQIA community and those having meetings; the menu is reason enough to visit. English muffins are topped with baby spinach, smoked hollandaise, a 63-degree egg and pork floss (something that should be far more common in cafes). Coffee is by Waterloo roasters Numero Uno. There’s also sort-of Thai fried rice with crab, and a green-tea noodle salad wrapped in smoked salmon and dressed with sesame and Vietnamese mint. At night, there's street food and beer.
