Wonderful spot for a bite

Quaint little restaurant in downtown Lakeland. The food is good and the atmosphere is full of energy. Diverse clientele and very busy. Only downsides are that it's small and finding an indoor table can be difficult as well as difficult to find parking. Across the street from a park, nice to eat... read more

Quaint little restaurant in downtown Lakeland. The food is good and the atmosphere is full of energy. Diverse clientele and very busy. Only downsides are that it's small and finding an indoor table can be difficult as well as difficult to find parking. Across the street from a park, nice to eat, relax, and explore.

I've been here several times over the past two years - during the week, on the weekend, and for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I've dined solo, brought friends, even a date or two! I've also gone just for a cup of delicious coffee and relaxation. Food-wise, I can honestly say the menus have never disappointed. The ambience is both comfortable... More

This place never lets me down. Awesome coffee and awesome food. Nice and quaint. Great place to have coffee and a snack, and listen to music. Their lunch menu is great as well. Love this place.

I have eaten at the Black 'n Brew several times. It is located right next to the old downtown Lakeland square (Munn Park) and parking is usually easy to find. It is a wonderful coffee shop/eatery. The atmosphere is pleasant and the food is good; outdoor seating is an option, too. What impresses me the most, however, are the counter... More

Black 'n Brew is one of my favorite local eats. It is perfect for a quick lunch during the week or a meeting after work. The coffee, sandwich, salads and soups are all delicious. The chicken salad, turkey and brie, and lobster bisque are some of my favorites, but you really cannot go wrong with anything you pick.

We had a difficult time even deciding on what to eat upon looking at the menu! Great selection of sandwiches, salads, flatbreads, wraps, coffee drinks, and desserts. We settled on the Margherita and Black & Brew (steak) Flatbreads, Quinoa Salad, Carrot Cake, and coffee. What a delicious meal we enjoyed! The server was very friendly, the food was prepared to...

Best Mocha Frappe I have ever had....move over Starbucks, this has you beat handsdown. The lunch sammies are fresh, very tasty. The breakfast sammies are a treat as well. A must try. Dog friendly outdoor seating and they even bring out water and doggie treats for the furbabies.... Definately a very cool and hip place to enjoy yummyness.

Yummy sandwiches and good salads. Great variety of food. Excellent iced tea. You order your food counter style and then your lunch is delivered to you. Very good service. Great location. After lunch you can walk through the downtown.

I've stopped in a few times with my family or just me and my child for lunch. Each time we hoped it would be better than the last, but can't seem to find 1 menu item that is worth coming back for. I truly thought you couldn't mess up grilled cheese and tomato soup... But even that was sub par.... More

Stopped for breakfast after walking around Munn Park for the Spring Obsession, also a great event. Ate outside and people watched. The food is really fresh and delicious. Iced tea is fresh brewed.
