Great lunch

Very nice lunch options. Looked like they were trying to rip off Panera Bread's "pick two" with an identical offering with a similar name, but who cares as long as the food is good? Had a cup of soup that I can't remember but it was nice, with an unforgettable beet and goat cheese salad. They also... read more

After you have eaten swing in for a cup of coffee. Service is good and selection is nice. Cost is justifiable.

Over priced coffee drinks. Could find most in a gas station at less then half the price. They are also twice the size. (THEY TASTE BETTER). Super over priced sandwiches. Go to Fat Jacks for a real sandwich twice the size at half price. Overpriced salads that should be twice the size for the money they charge. So many other... More

We went because trip advisor indicated you were open. The hours on the door indicated you should have been. We didn't see any sign indicated you should have been closed.

Black n Brew is a great coffee house/bistro located in downtown Lakeland. Everything I've tried on the menu is excellent. Great coffee. The turkey and Brie sandwich with apples and cran raspberry honey mustard is a special delight. It goes without saying that their coffee is top notch.

Honestly one of the best coffee shops I've every been to! Try their cold brew and their frappes! Always delivers great quality and friendly service! Their baristas are the nicest!

The Black 'n Brew is a great college area coffeehouse that my 78 year old mother and I fell in love with. We stopped in for lunch after the recommendation of several people, and I can't say enough good stuff about their food and their service. Great variety of healthy hearty sandwiches and soups. Salads looked great too. The young,... More
