In the crystal structure of the title compound, C14H15BrO2, weak C-HO interactions link the molecules into zigzag chains extending along the c-axis direction. These chains are further assembled into (100) layers via - stacking interactions between inversion-related chromenone fragments [interplanar distance = 3.376 (2) Å].
