I don't get the hype. It's decent pizza, but the staff makes the experience not worth it. Apparently I'm not hipster enough to be treated like a paying customer. I was always under the impression businesses are supposed to have some sort of customer service knowledge. Way overpriced, I make better pizza at home, and don't have a condescending guy taking my money.

The pizza here is always great. I love their cool flavors. Also the mural in the outdoor seating section in the back is great. Little Babies ice cream next door is great too.

Pizza was not bad. Had better but it definitely hit the spot when I was looking for pizza after the brewery tour. The ice cream spot next door was great.

Pizza is average, definitely not a bad slice. The thing that kiled it for me was the staff being obnoxious. The two behind the counter made fun of me for only wanting a plain slice and not one of their "inspired slices". They may have only been joking but I did not appreciate it any the less. I will never go back.

I thought this place was good but after coming here for awhile there are some staff members that are really rude and think they can get away with it. They talk to customers in a condescending way that is truly unique to this place. Granted some staff are friendly but be prepared for sideways remarks and religion style shaming. I brushed it off the first couple of times chalking it up to the workers having a bad day but those Circle of Hope kids have attitude problems! Vegan options are borderline non existent so if you decided eating animals isn't good for you and the planet go to Blackbird Pizzeria instead. I've come to detest the overall uptight environment despite all the neat trinkets and store design. It's also funny that a bunch of hipsters can come into my neighborhood, setup shop then selectively treat customers that came to show support. It feels like they have a policy to only entertain a certain crowd and now that I think about it I've rarely seen anything but white employees. Before I went vegan the food was tasty. They used cool pizza boxes that could be used as plates then did away with it. I guess profit trumped our environment? Wanna know what makes their pizza so good? THEY DON'T CLEAN THEIR OVEN! That's gotta be healthy. The final straw was when I called with just a quick question about theirs and little babies hours today (Sunday) and the kid ignorantly replies "we close at 9 but we reserve this line for pick and delivery orders only. Little babies is a separate business" then proceeds to hangup on me! The 2 businesses don't just neighbor each other and share the same owner but they also connect together inside, share the backyard for patrons and usually close at the same time! You'd think 2 business that have agreed to share traffic would also look out for each other and give general information but hey that's the kind of person Pizza Brain is. What legitimate pizza store closes at 9pm during the week anyway? This is definitely not a place you'd call after a long day at work. For the record I've experienced this at Little Babies only once and they also don't have an all animal based products or nothing approach. Their non-dairy options are always available and my only complaint is that the awesome flavors change too frequently. The price is steep as well but it's a bit of a gourmet experience or treat than a place to stock up. They have a great Pint promotion usually too so I will spare the little babies. I hope one day they get their act together because Pizza Brain has a bit of an identity crisis.

I ordered a Jane pizza and bought a diet black cherry soda. The pizza and drink was delicious. The wait wasn't long. Its a great place to chill and get pizza. Theres a ice cream shop next door to it.

What you've read is true: this place deserves their rep for good fresh pizza, friendly vibes, and outlandish pizza-themed decor. My girlfriends and I always share ice cream at little babies and follow it up with the plain Jane pizza slice. They also have a parklett and a back yard seating area. Eat here!

Cutting edge. Offbeat. Aggressively 90's. Trying too hard? This place was so hipster it hurt. However, their pizza was delicious. I don't care what affectations they have, as long as the pizza is good, I am happy. When we went, the Pope had just been to town, and little did I know, this had a huge effect on the restaurants in the area. Lots of places were out of food because they were cleaned out the week before. In this case the pizza we ate wasn't our first choice off the menu, but it still lived up to our expectations.
