What a quaint little place. I love it. It's in downtown lakeland across from the beautiful park. The sandwiches are yummy and made fresh. If you haven't been here, your missing out.

This restaurant started last year and has become a favorite among the locals of Lakeland. The food is very tasty, the service is very good, and the prices are very reasonable. It is one of the best places to try when in downtown Lakeland, FL.

Really unique bistro. They offer a great selection of food. I'm in love with their lobster bisque soup. A little pricey, but well worth every penny. And the ambiance of the place is wonderful.

The food here was very good. The soup is served in a good size bowl. The type of soup varies on each day. There are nearby shops to enjoy also. Restaurant Appearance - Cool looking setting with interior brick walls, modern Reservations - don’t think so Staff - Wait to be seated - Order food at counter and self seating... More

Excellent Coffees, I generally get the Mediterranean salad, generous and healthy with good olives. Staff is exceptionally nice. Service is super fast. Their menu is interesting, they have special chai and things I haven't tried.

What a great lunch. I had a half Turkey and brie sandwich and a salad. My hubby had the half ham and cheese sandwich with the soup of the day. Daughter had roast beef and Turkey sandwich with au jus. Everything was delicious.

The have great sandwiches, salads and sides. You can get beer and wine or tea and sodas. They are best known for coffee, hence the Brew in Black and Brew. I love their tea. It's made just perfectly. The amber color and rich flavor. True southern iced tea.

Black 'n Brew has become a staple in downtown Lakeland after more than 10 years of business. BNB offers a comfortable, friendly atmosphere, good food, courteous servers, and attentive owners. On one occasion when my husband and I were there for dinner, the server forgot my husband's order, and then took way too long to get the correct order processed.... More
