The food tastes good, and there is a wide variety of choices of soups, salads, and sandwiches. What I liked the best was the "Take 2". Mix and match 1/2 portions of 2 choices. The prices are reasonable. They are open later than most sandwich type places. We were there for a late night supper, and then for lunch the... More

Black 'n Brew is one of my favorite restaurants in Lakeland. Its food is always consistently good and very reasonably priced. Conveniently located in beautiful downtown Lakeland directly across from Munn Park, it offers both indoor and outdoor seating. Soups, salads, and sandwiches are the main fare. Its casual vibe is perfect for meeting up with friends. Highly recommended!

OK, I'll start by saying this is not a review on their coffee... I hate coffee so that wouldn't be fair... lol Saying that, I did try their hot chocolate, tea and some non coffee drinks plus their food. The hot chocolate was actually horrible, throw away immediately type. The other drinks were let's just say different... Now the food,... More

I have been here for lunch a couple of times. The soups are fantastic. With the pick two you can get a cup of soup and a half of a sandwich which is plenty for lunch. On the weekends and evenings they make flatbreads which I had last time I was there. With a cup of soup one is enough... More

I had been wanting to try this place for awhile and finally got around to it this past Saturday. We had the Chicken ranch sandwich, the turkey and brie, and the smoked turkey. We enjoyed them very much, and the cookies were awesome. We also tried the white chocolate mocha, caramel macchiato, and strawberry basil green tea. ALL very good,... More

Very good lunch. With the pick two you can get half a sandwich and a very good soup. Nice location downtown on the park. The girls who work there are cute as heck too.

We often go to Black & Brew for lunch. Their soups are excellent especially the lobster bisque. Do check their daily soup schedule. My son always gets the Meltaway with roast beef and au jus for dipping. The Choose Two is a great choice as you can mix a half a sandwich or salad with a bowl of soup. I... More

Black & Brew is one of my favorite places in Lakeland to grab a coffee, delicious sandwich, or flatbread. I have visited on multiple occasions since I moved to Lakeland about six years ago and have always had a pleasant experience when I visit. Most recently I tried the Pesto Chicken Sandwich. The chicken was tender, the pesto was flavorful,... More

I started with a cup of bacon potato soup. Extremely flavorful with perfect broth. The potatoes and bacon were both fresh and the soup was hot. I also enjoyed a Meltaway Consisting of roast beef, hickory smoked turkey, cheddar and Swiss cheeses and red onion on a french baguette. A marvelous combination that really didn't need the serving of au... More
