A very cozy and friendly establishment just next to the Brookline village T-station. They are open early in the morning and they serve simple but delicious dishes. Everything is made on the spot so you may expect some delays between your order and serving but it is worth it.

While the rest of my family slept in on a recent trip to Boston, I walked the half mile from our hotel to this funky little café. It serves yummy pastries and cooked to order breakfasts. I really appreciated the option of a one-egg with toast meal. They had a wide selection of teas in addition to coffee, hot chocolate,... More

Loved my Egg and Gluten Free bread breakfast. Stopped in on our way to a meeting. The food was great and we had service with a smile. Very gluten free friendly. I for sure would come back. Hard to find great food and good service at one place.

What a lovely place. I have been here a few times. I like it. The food is great. The atmosphere too.The service is with a smile and fast. If you are staying to eat in or for a healthy take away lunch - I strongly recommend it.

There are no better coffee-and places than the KooKoo Cafe. Conveniently located right across the street from the T, in the heart of Brookline Village, this place serves delicious coffee beverages and terrific teas of all varieties. They have excellent sandwiches, salads and soups (made from scratch -- as their sign says) and special dishes of the day as well.... More

Be it a phenomenal brownie, an incredible Persian dish, or a warm cup of coffee or tea, Kookoo provides the best alternative to coffee chains and delis that line Brookline streets. The atmosphere in this small, Euro cafe is one that you do want to not leave. Hunker down and enjoy the music. Meet a friend and chat over tea.... More

So everyday taking the T I've noticed Kookoo and today was the day I decided to go inside. I instantly fell in love with the place. It reminded me of all the little cafes I frequented in Europe (which I've been sorely missing in Boston). The coffee and chocolate croissant I got for breakfast were great and so was the... More

I found out this little cafe while I was walking down to the train station. It has a very nice inside. I have tried their coffee and oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. They were both very good. Then me and my husband went to have breakfast during the weekend and we ordered breakfast sandwich. They do not put precooked eggs in... More

Located in the heart of Brookline Village (just a few steps across the Brookline Village T stop on the Green Line) This is one of my favorite neighborhood places: cozy, inviting, friendly little place owned by a local family that serves fresh, healthy and authentic food (try the Sabzi plate, for example). It's not always easy to find baked treats... More
