Huge breakfast and lunch menu, friendly service, solid coffee. Can sit at table or counter. Tiny place - can get a bit crowded.

“Quiet coffee shop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Black and Brew is my place to wake up and take on the day when I'm in South Philly! A pretty quiet little coffee shop, it is unpretentious but boasts a solid breakfast menu and great coffee. Whether you sit inside with the constantly changing wall art by local artists or outside next to the amazing mosaic walls (a little bit of South Street's dazzle) the atmosphere is rich.

“Cozy Breakfast Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

The food is good & it's a nice little intersection of old school South Philly & the newer hipster influx

“Consistently great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2011

I visit Black N' Brew a few times per week to get a strong cup of coffee and a bite to eat for breakfast. The staff is very friendly and always smiling! I love to sit outside and watch the passersby on Passyunk Ave.

The regular coffee is good and decently priced. Gets a bit crowded during brunch, I haven't actually eaten there but it must be good.
