“Cozy place with good food in an artfully-designed space”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

They roast their own coffee, make their own cookies and desserts, have a wide array of wine and huge array of cheeses available. There are also grab-n-go salads and sandwiches too. Sandwiches are made fresh daily. The owner has done a fabulous job of creating a welcoming place with seating in cozy corners here and there. Very eclectic and informal but homey atmosphere. Sweet. Romantic. There are also gift ideas everywhere -- soaps, candles, cards I think, etc. You can buy Black Dinah chocolates there too. Just west of downtown Brooklin. Accessible entrance off the parking lot. Check their website for more info: http://www.thecavebrooklin.com
