An ok place to eat if you're downtown

This is not one of those places you'd travel out of your way to find, but if your business (or leisure) activities bring you into downtown Lakeland at meal time, Black and Brew is a pretty good place to get a good sandwich.

Stopped in and grabbed a quick Bistro sandwich with egg, black forest ham, cheddar on pressed ciabatta bread that was awesome! Sandwich came out quickly & was hot! Inside of restaurant was nice and clean and have a nice little patio area out front as well. If I'm ever in Lakeland again would definitely eat here again!

Tasted better coffee in Raceway, Sunoco gas stations at less than half the price. Food products are over priced. Don't waste your time or money.

Varied selection of sandwiches, coffees, an DESSERTS! Something for any mood, better than Panera and Starbucks combined, I love meeting friends here on the weekend or for a smooth date ;)

The food is awesome. It is a sandwich shop, but they are very good. They even have a good verity of coffee, wine, and beer. It is a low key place, so if you looking to relax, this is the place to go.

I have been going to this coffee shop for years! Its because of them I don't frequent starbucks anymore they put them to shame. Black and brew has the best cold brews and frappes around they use really high quality ingredients which you can taste. The staff there is ALWAYS super friendly and genuinely seems happy to be there and... More

Great sandwiches that are better than most. Worth your visit. They have soups, salads, soups. Also is not a chain! If you like coffee, this is a good place to go. Staff is real nice. Gets busy so come early or a little late especially at lunch time.

Excellent place for lunch when visiting downtown Lakeland. Great soups, salads, and sandwiches. My wife had the full size Napa Valley salad, and I had a Half turkey sandwich with an Asian salad. The couple with us also had combinations of the turkey sandwich. Full, but not stuffed. Located right on the square. We will return again and again.

If you are in Lakeland, I recommend Black N Brew. Its a non-chain coffee shop with salads and sandwiches. All the food is great. The staff is always very nice as well. Probably the best non-chain restaurant in Lakeland. It is in Downtown, very close (easy walking distance) to the children's museum, munn park, lake mirror, and hollis gardens.
