I ate breakfast with my 2 teens. The food was good- omelets and pancakes. Took home 1/2 dozen donuts which were awesome. Long lines but we were seated in 10-15 min. Only negative is small booth size. It was a bit cramped for my tall family.

Nothing amazing, but very good overall. Donuts are very good when warm. My omelette was good. Blueberry pancakes were nice and fresh.

You'll have to wait in line to eat breakfast at Brown's, but it's worth the wait!! Their Sunrise Special is a real treat for vacationers. Scrambled egg, cheese, your choice of Bacon, ham, sausage, or scrapple on an english muffin is to die for. Top it off with one of Brown's famous donuts! (Another line to stand in if you... More

Cinnamon donuts are the best around. Be prepared to wait in line but they're worth every minute warm out of the fryer.

My daughter and husband rode their bikes to Brown's two days in a row for the doughnuts. They are that good!

Best burger of the summer, juicy fresh bun lettuce tomato onions. Would highly recommend. Also had a hotdog that was very yummy. Will definitely be back soon. Still have not had my doughnut to fix for the season.

Last week while vacationing in Ocean City, we bought a dozen donuts at Browns. Best donuts ever but the wait is usually at least 30 minutes. But the view from the boardwalk is great.

You wait in line in the morning for their donuts, and you will not be disappointed. They are the best anywhere in o.c. Or surrounding beach towns. It is worth the wait.

Another great experience at Browns. The service was great and the omelets are the best you will ever get, an inch high and fluffy, hard to finish.
