Coffee 's great but can you resist the criossant?

This family run coffee shop is a gem and you have a major decision when parking close by makes resisting so much more difficult, The service is friendly and you support a family run business. You can't go wrong when you drop in.

Love this little cafe. Tucked around the corner from Harvard St in Brookline Village, this casual cafe offers very good food and especially vegan and vegetarian offerings.

I love Kookoo's Cafe for so many reasons. There are little nik naks tucked in and out of every corner, a fabulous staff that is super friendly and ready to help, and the delicious iced teas! I highly recommend the Pomegranate Wu Wei iced tea as well as the Ginger iced tea. I could easily drink three in a row... More

Went to this cafe with the girl and I.. And quite surprised! Little cafe place with lots to look at.. The place was happening and felt comfortable even though it became crowded at one point! Limited seating but there's plenty of food and coffee choices and combinations! Very gluten/vegetarian/vegan/hipster friendly!

Stopped by for some warm drinks. A very charming little cafe with several drink and food items. I appreciates their soy and almond milk offerings. They also seemed to have a lot of gluten free baked goods. Simple offerings, but good service and quality.

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.
